In 2012, I filed for divorce from my husband of 20 yrs. I was scared and unsure about everything. I had 2 teenage boys that I was very concerned about and no idea of where to begin. Neil settled my nerves and my fears and gave me the strength and courage to start a "new life" on my own. He is very professional, respectful and supportive. I have recommended him to several people that have consulted him with family issues and he will be the first lawyer I call if and when I am in need.
After three previous lawyers and almost five years of bad legal experiences I found Neil Colman. He listened to my case, looked over what had occurred up to that point and gave me his advice based on those experiences and what the law requires. Based on that initial interview, I decided to have Mr. Colman handle my case and see what he could do to put things back in order. Unlike my previous lawyers, Neil LISTENED to what I had to say and then actually remembered it when I visited him the second time to hire him to represent me. All I can say is that finding Neil Colman when I did was a godsend. He is the only lawyer I have had that was actually prepared when we went to court and who then actively argued my case and fought for me. The result was that, for the first time in five years, I was able to get the court to begin to treat my case in accordance with my divorce decree and the law. Unlike some of my prior attorneys, Neil fought to achieve an outcome instead of just extending the arguments and running up legal fees. While my case is far from over, I now have hope and some peace of mind because I believe I have a lawyer who cares about the law and making sure that I am treated fairly in accordance with that law.
Neil was my lawyer when I went through my divorce. Neil has a talent of understanding people, he is very knowledgeable about his professions. Not only he fights hard for me, he also personally cares about my well being. With his effort, my divorce process went very smoothly, I truely appreciate all his efforts and supports. He must be one of the best lawyers in Michigan.
Neil coleman represented me in my family matter and led me on throughout case that I had 100% chance of winning case. When court came he stumbled on his words and came up with rediculous answers to judges questions. I feel he just needed my money and would of told me anything I wanted to hear to get my cash
My phone consultation with Mr. Colmen was very informative. He is knowledgeable, patient and kind. Thank Mr. Colmen for you time. It is greatly appreciated.
