The Law Offices of Michael E. Finein, A Family Law Firm, handles all aspects of divorce and family law cases, including property division, complex and high asset cases, contentious child custody/visitation and moveaway cases, as well as child and spousal support matters.
As an experienced family law attorney my goal is to effectively represent my client's interests and protect their rights under the law.
Family law cases and divorces can be high conflict and high stress. My preference is to try to minimize both the conflict and stress through negotiations if possible.
I have over 25 years experience negotiating settlements both as an attorney and in business.
I am also an experienced litigator. When needed I will aggressively protect my client's rights in court.

I endorse this lawyer. Mike is extremely experienced in family law matters. I have known Mike for over 15 years, and he was my go-to guy when I had a question about family law on behalf of a family friend. Mike's advice to her was spot on and really helped her her through a difficult situation. One word sums up Mike - "caring". He really cares about people, and is like a pappa bear when it comes to protecting his clients. He will go to the mat for you and represent your interests until the end. And Mike has the experience, intelligence and common sense to make it happen.
