Michelle helped our son navigate through a nasty custody case and false accusations. She was there for him when he felt like giving up and always seemed to be able to pull out a magic wand at just the right time. Determined and professional, but never pushy. She helped disprove our fear of bias against dads in custody cases.
When I learned that my husband filed for divorce, I contacted Michelle Adams and was given an appointment immediately. She asked all the pertinent questions and I learned exactly how to find the answers. In my office visits she never rushed me but was efficient in her detailing my options. We not once lapsed into non-essential conversation. I appreciate her availability and also her emailing information for my record keeping. Within several months my husband and I reconciled. So I didn't need representation in court, but I was definitely confident that Ms. Adams could handle any issue I was facing or would face in the future. I would unequivocally call upon her again for any legal work I might need.
Michelle represented me by court appointment. She never kept me informed and never attended meetings with myself and the county investigators. She informed me that her and the prosecutor came to a plea agreement, but in court the prosecutor had no idea about the plea agreement. I had about 6k in legal fees and she doesn't deserve a dime.
Did not keep me informed, was to busy with other cases to handle mine. Temporary orders lasted 18 months, because of her lack of interest in my case.
This woman encouraged me to sign a plea bargain agreeing to an exeptional sentence of one year confinement in wccw. The high end of the standard sentencing range was only 9 months. It was my first offense. I was never offered a first time offender plea bargain. etc. etc... lame duck
