Our experience with Michelle Cheney has been wonderful. She cared about our family, listened, was always there for us, FOUGHT hard for us, and we know God blessed us with her.
Many times when you need legal counsel you are just “a case” and are not given 100%, due to I’m sure heavy case loads, but Michelle Cheney can manage heavy case loads and still make you feel like you are her only and top priority in her busy work day.
My family and I cannot say enough about her abilities. If you are in need of an attorney (ours was an adoption case) you will not be disappointed by Michelle Cheney. She was instrumental in putting our family together!!! She is hands down the BEST ATTORNEY I have ever seen.

Michelle was such a blessing to me. She truly took my case to heart and fought for the best interest of my child. She kept me informed throughtout the entire process and billed more than fairly (and I've had other attorneys bleed me with no action taken). This is her profession, but she also has compassion and will battle for you because its the right thing to do and its not just about the money... and that is hard to find.

My wife and I needed an attorney for an adoption of a newborn baby. Due to some strange circumstances we had no time to hire an attorney or prepare for this adoption. To make matters more complicated we needed papers drawn up and legal advice on the weekend. A friend of ours recommended Michelle Cheney. To our surprise she jumped in our situation ON THE WEEKEND and made a difficult situation fairly easy. Michelle did all of this before actually being retained. Throughout the adoption process we were very pleased with Michelle. We would highly recommend Michelle! Our adoption was completed in a timely manner and we can't thank Michelle enough.

Ms. Cheney is an extremely effective and knowledgable familt law attorney who is a wonderful advocate for families and children. Her knowledge of the law is excellent and she has a wonderful ability to make a situation that for the most part is the worst time in the lives of many, a much easier process and less stressful on her clients.

In the last 15 years, I have worked with many attorneys in my field of DNA and drug testing for the family courts in Dallas and the surrounding counties. Michelle Cheney is one of those attorneys. I have seen her many times in the courtroom going head to head with some of the best attorneys. She is extremely knowledgeable, competent, always prepared and knows family law. She works non-stop for her clients. She is not only an excellent, highly qualified attorney but would also be an ourstanding Judge, in my opinion.

Michelle is a pit bull when it comes to being an advocate for her clients. She kept us informed, always acted in our best interest, and maintained ethical and professional integrity at all times! I would recommend her to anyone.

Michelle Cheney represented me as my attorney in the matter of Family Law. She was professional and looked out for my best interest in the case. She is very knowledgable in her field and her practice contiues to grow each year. Her staff was friendly and helpful and was always ready to help me, when I had questions.

Michelle is one of the most knowledgable attorneys regarding family law. If it was not for Michelle in our case, we would not be enjoying our time with our niece. I would and do recommend Michelle to anyone who ask for an attorney regarding family law.

Michelle is a family gal practicing family law. She is VERY well versed in laws regarding child custody. My family met her in CPS court while fostering and adopting 2 children. I watched her in that venue and knew if i ever needed a family lawyer I would hire her. And when the time came, we went directly to Michelle. She is aggressive, energetic and on fire for what she does and strives to be the best which makes a huge difference in how an attorney represents you. The word Lazy is NOT in her vocabulary. My situation involved my grandson and my son getting at least 50/50 custody. WE WON!!

This is one of the most hard working dedicated professionals I have ever met. I would highly recommend her for any type of family law.

I highly recommend Michelle Cheney. She was very helpful and supportive to my family and me during and after the custody case. She always took the time to answer our questions and worked very hard to get my grandson back to his mother.

Honestly, I would never trust any legal situation to anyone other than Ms. Cheney. She helped me through a horrible custody battle and ultimately after a year of hard work and dedication my son came home where he belongs. Over the years I have also had other legal situations that I have run in to and she has always been there eager and willing to help. My family would not be the same without her and I am eternally grateful for her.

Michelle is a very informed, knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney. I used her for my divorce, power of attorney and will. I could call her on any legal matter and she is willing to help, if she can't she will know or find someone who can.. thumbs up on her.

Michelle is very down to earth and easy to talk to. She listened to my situation and took control just as I asked of her. I am so thankful I had Michelle in my corner through this difficult time in my life.
