She did not inform me about my right for temporary support and let me spend down my community assets during a period of more than a year. She was inaccessible and did not make me feel like my case was a priority. Her advice seemed to center around, "Sell your home, find another place to live and start a new life."
Divorce is emotionally difficult when children are involved and financially difficult when holdings in companies are involved. Working out a compromise to settle equitably but without rancor is a touch balance. Michele understood the nuances and sensitivities involved and worked through the alternatives with empathy and understanding, using some help from colleagues in the complex business matters. Strong positive recommendation to guide and support with empathy through a draining experience.
Michelle Bissada is a highly knowledgeable, skilled attorney that is trustworthy and highly dependable. Michelle represented me in a dissolution that spanned two years due to changing circumstances. Michelle remained focused on ensuring that my best interests were represented each time the situation changed. Michelle is highly strategic, efficient and compassionate. She is a creative problem solver who is highly dedicated to her clients well being. I highly recommend her without reservation.
I highly recommend Michele Bissada if you are searching for a family law attorney. Divorce is never an easy thing to go through, but Michele made the process as bearable as it could be. She is highly knowledgeable in all areas dealing with the divorce process. She always had thorough answer fors my endless questions, very up to date with past and current law. Had good ideas for complicated matters such as dividing partnership interests, vesting issues, etc. I always felt that she had my best interests at hand and was sensitive to all parties, but would go to the mat for me, if required. She was very responsive to both my phone calls and emails, as were her very competent staff and associates. I would not hesitate to recommend Michele very highly to any of my family or friends.
I have been a client of Michele Bissada for the past eight years. I have gone to her on several matters that ranged from real estate to family matters. She has always provided me with the help and advice that I needed in a friendly, responsive and competent manner. She is a great attorney, but equally important, she is a nice person. I am pleased to have her for my attorney.
