About Me

Michael J. Haskell is a skilled, effective, and compassionate attorney who firmly believes in being worth more than he costs. Michael focuses his practice on divorce, child custody, family law, and business litigation.  As an attorney with a top ten law degree and Masters degree in Business Administration, Michael brings a very intelligent, conscientious, and efficient approach to his practice, consistently balancing cost/benefit analysis with client goals. As a single father who is passionate about his children, Michael brings a principled philosophy to family law. Michael believes that, while divorce is an unfortunate reality, it should never destroy children. Finally, as a man who is personally offended by injustice and bullies, Michael is well known for aggressively defending his clients, whenever necessary.
