Attorney Tallman came very highly recommended to me by several people and she lived up to that and more! She handled my divorce, and my sister's divorce, who referred me. My friend also used her for a land contract problem she had and, during my divorce, she was able to help my Mother get her will in order. My other friend used her when her son got into some trouble and was facing some jail time. Attorney Tallman went above and beyond. She meet me more than once after hours and was always accessible by phone, including the weekend! What attorney does that. She fought hard to get me what I wanted in my divorce settlement and caught several mistakes my spouse's attorney made. My sister and friends spoke very highly of her but I was skeptical. She was above and beyond what they told me about her. She was hardworking, down to earth and really seemed to care about my case. And she really knew the law! In fact, in the middle, when I mentioned a problem we had with my Mom and an attorney she had gone to for her will, Attorney Tallman met with her at no charge and then fixed what the other attorney messed up for a small fee. She was so patient with my Mom and explained everything so she could understand it. My Mom was so grateful. I highly recommend Attorney Tallman to anyone. I've talked to several people in our community that have used her and they all say the same thing. She's the best!
I hired Attorney Tallman to handle my divorce, which she assured me at the beginning was a simple matter. Months later I was so frustrated by her lack of involvement in my case that I filed a complaint with the Michigan Attorney Grievance Commission. Communication was nonexistent. The fact that she has a secretary only two days a week made everything take twice as long. She is not detail oriented and I repeatedly had to remind her of details that had not been attended to. She might be a good attorney for other kinds of matters - but definitely not divorce.
Attorney Tallman handled my Mother's estate. We had some complicated things and she helped us work through them. She was very knowledgeable and we were very happy. A friend had referred us and she was as good as our friend had said.
