I will always be thankful to Michael E.Thomas. It is very uncommon that you find an attorney that will hold your hand and be a cell phone call away at all times like Mr. Thomas. Even on the weekends... He is just like family. Every step of the way I have had his companionship, advice and even humor to guide me through some very dark times. I am sure that God had lead me to this man. I have gotten through some very difficult times through his advice alone. Anyone that is going through a difficult divorce & truly needs help would be lucky to have Mike Thomas working in their favor..I thank God for him every day.
I was referred to Michael by a friend of my neighbors. Upon meeting with Michael, we spent a good deal of time discussing my issues and options prior to moving forward. He is extremely competent, straight forward and gets to the heart of the issues. Since hiring him in 2009 (and after leaving behind my original lawyer) I have gained, solely through the actions of my attorney Michael, full custody of my son (Age 11). But most of all I have gained respect back for myself and my reputation which was falsely represented by my exwife and her lawyer and never rightfully defended. I have the utmost confidence in Michael, and he always has a fair and open door policy when it comes to new legal matters which arise.
Mr. Thomas initially advised me that he could do a "better job" than the legal representative I had. When he was given a chance to prove himself, Mike Thomas left me without my children, a total of $50,000.00 poorer, and he had coerced me into signing the worst divorce deal in Michigan. He failed to protect me as a father, a disabled veteran, and a human being. Worst of all, he failed to do what was best for the children. He went so far as to ask for a trial, then he backed down....although ALL of my witnesses were present and the defense had NOTHING but lies to go on. This attorney misrepresented the case and a conflict of interest was guided by his desire to take money I can NEVER generate. His breach of fiduciary duty caused severe pecuniary losses. I was NOT informed of his "litigation" and deals he made. He went so far as to claim that I HAD to sign the papers in order to have a "....forum to fight in". I can only hope that nobody makes the same mistake.
