I have been a colleague of Michelle's for 20 years. She is an excellent lawyer and I do not hesitate to send her clients that I cannot serve. She is an extremely good advocate for clients.

Michelle was an absolute godsend throughout my extremely contentious divorce. The first time I met with her, she took the time to listen to me and to completely understand my situation including the obstacles we were going to face with my ex. Michelle immediately was able to put a plan together to protect me financially and how we were going to proceed through my divorce in a timely efficient manner.
Michelle is one of the most professional and extremely knowledgeable lawyers I have delt with. Her ability to deal with opposing council was impressive. Although there were many times during the divorce it got extremely rough due to the lack of response and cooperation from my ex and his attorney, Michelle stayed calm and collected, and did not rest until my best interests were handled.
At one point during my divorce the counselor I was seeing went on a sabbatical and I did not know which way to turn. In a conversation with Michelle this came up and she was able to refer me to another counselor who has been wonderful. She has many professionals that she knows and works with that can help with everything from A to Z.
I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone who is in need of a very strong, confident attorney. She fought for me to get what I deserved through the most difficult time of my life. Although my divorce is now over, Michelle has remained a part of my life and has been an inspiration. She has really been proactive in helping me move forward with my new life.

Michelle is absolutely the best - direct, honest, sincere and complete. Additional staff is excellent as well; they maintain communication and ensure all details are thoroughly covered. My experience with Michelle is running more than 3 years now, dealing with a custody case where my opposition is relentless and determined to stay in court indefinitely – Michelle has negotiated far beyond my expectations, keeping court appearances to a minimum while fully maintaining my custody rights. I have recommended The Hannigan Law Firm to close friends with confidence.

Michelle is very communicative, on the ball, and aggressive in getting work done, and my divorce completed. I would recommend her to anyone.

Michelle is a fantastic lawyer that produced results after dismissing my original attorney. I was referred to Michelle by a friend who is also an attorney. I figured if other attorney used Michelle she has to be good. Her knowledge of the divorce process is amazing, as well as her ability to strategize. I was facing an uphill battle from day one and she was able to develop a game plan that totally diffused the other sides argument. Michelle is
compassionate and understands the emotional strain divorce has on the family unit and works to minimize the toll. Make no mistake, she is tough as nails and will fight for you. I would recommend her in a minute to anyone faced with a lengthy divorce battle or anyone seeking expert knowledge of ones rights through the divorce process. Michelle also has excellent staff that is responsive, informative and caring.
