I sought Mike out to help me with several issues and in each and every one I have been very satisfied. He gives good, straight forward advice and then supports and follows my guidance. He and his team work on my timeline and support my goals while always keeping my interest at heart. Additionally, his billing is fair and transparent. I will go to him again if the need arises.

Thanks for your help - very pleased with the responses and timely communication. I have used AVVO and found it to be a wonderful resource. Michael was a really nice person to speak with via email and I appreciate the time he took to respond to my inquiry. I would recommend Michael Lee Dewitt, as someone to go to for questions. He has a high rating on AVVO, and I can see why. Excellent.

I was surprised to see all the other reviews here simply because I thought I was Mikes only client!
It seems like he is always on the phone with me or answering a complex email of mine. Mike is knowledgeable, honest, fair and committed. I stayed in a seemingly hopeless situation in my life for many years because I thought there is no way anyone will be able to cut through this red tape. Just an hour after meeting Mike my years of fears turned into hope. I knew I found a lawyer that could do what needed to be done. My case is very complex and would challenge anyone. Mike is not derailed by this and has an astute ear to the details.
He is strategic, thoughtful and skilled. Strategic in that he gives sincere thought to the details and knows when and how to execute. Thoughtful in that his attention is undivided when working on a given task. Skilled in that he is able to meet you wherever you are at and really connect. He has been a true solid rock for me.
I am in the middle of my case but at least I sleep well at night knowing I have Mike on my team. He has my child’s best interest in mind and that is what I care about.
Having a Lawyer like Mike is half of the battle won, the other half is up to you, trust your lawyer and the process and then rest.

I am grateful for having found Michael Lee Dewitt to be my attorney for my Legal Separation, which includes issues of domestic violence. He put me at ease in our first meeting. I concur with what other clients have mentioned about his smile and his genuine caring attitude. I got the sense immediately that he “knows his stuff” and that I was in good hands. I had talked with a few other attorneys before him, and what strikes me most about Mike Dewitt is that he is compassionate. He listens attentively to my concerns and treats me like a person of value, not just someone whom he is doing business with. No cookie cutter approach! This is so important for me because I have been going through a very upsetting experience with my husband.
Mike is helping me to navigate the complexities related to my case. I strongly feel he is there to assist and advise me for the best possible outcome. Mike is prompt about answering phone calls and emails, and, as others have mentioned, oftentimes answers after office hours, including weekends. He diligently keeps me informed about developments and my "next steps." He also appreciates that money can be an issue for clients. I am generally so emotional about my case that I oftentimes neglect to think about my financial situation. Many times, Mike has and continues to remind me of ways to cut or minimize costs, which I deeply appreciate. At the courthouse, Mike is a guiding light! He calms my nerves and gives me guidance when I need it most. Although he is my attorney, I also think of him as my friend. I highly recommend him!

I worked with Mike Dewitt on two occasions regarding a divorce/custody. I'll probably end up using him several more times throughout my child's life. He was great about explaining all my options and helping me choose the one that was right for me. I didn't take advantage of the option, but he does "unbundled" services for those that want guidance from an expert but choose to do the paperwork themselves. That saves people money and I always find that thoughtful!

I worked with Mike on a third party custody case recently. My case was headed for trial when he started on my case. Although we were trying to avoid trial, Mike thoroughly helped prepare for it. He wrote an excellent trial brief for us, and navigated the rest of the trial preparations. We were able to avoid trial at the last minute, and he helped finish the case. Mike was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I would recommend him to anyone.

When I saw Michael Dewitt last week, I was reminded of just what a great attorney he was when I needed a good divorce attorney most. After 33 years of marriage, terrible illness, debt and the works, I was beaten down and broke. Michael helped me pick up all the important pieces and encouraged me to take the rest one day at a time. It has been 3 years now, and just the sight of him conjured up gratitude over his empathy, kindness, wisdom and time spent to do what I could not do alone. Michael partnered with me by listening closely, researching like cases and giving me options with good direction. I hope I never need another divorce attorney, but the good news is I found out he does so much more. In fact, his entire office at Taylor Law is a working machine for their clients. Michael was worth every penny!

I recently saw Michael for a legal matter and found him to be very informative, detailed and helpful. He was easy to get along with and my issue was resolved with his advice. I will definitely use him in the future. Thank you Michael.

I have been working with Mike since April 2012 with a third a 3rd party custody case. Mike is always "on the ball", quick to answer when I have an issue and I most of all appreciate that he is so well level headed and a great listener. He has great advise and is always 2 steps ahead of the game. My case is not yet final, but even is it does not turn out the way as I plan I will be so greatful that I have had Mike Dewitt on my side!!
I would recommend Mike to anyone, He Rocks!!!

In 2004, I had a domestic violence charge against me, child custody, child-support, property dispersal & a highly contentious dissolution. Mike defended me in criminal court, walked me through the dissolution process and was instrumental in getting me a reasonable settlement. Moreover, Mike was always honest with me (good news & bad) and he was always there to let me know what options I had. At this point I consider Michael L. DeWitt a friend and a great sounding board. Going through a dissolution is hard but Mike always answered my phone calls, and emails. It was nice to know that whatever the issue was that my attorney was going to get back to me.
In 2007 Mike updated my Last Will & Testament. He emailed me the questionnaire, I filled it out, he asked a couple of extra questions and we were done. Very easy, fast and efficient.
Last year to the beginning of this year, Mike helped me helped me with a paternity issue. He got me the information I needed. When I submitted it to him, he was quick to get it into court, and signed off by a judge. I got my name on his birth certificate and was able to take my place as my sons father (paperwork wise, Iâ€™m a good daddy).
Three weeks ago, I met with Mike for a consult. He gave me options and direction on a different legal matter. Simply put, I trusted/trust him with the most important things in my life (my children) and heâ€™s never been a disappointment. Oh, and this is off the subject, but he also makes a mean cup of coffee (Preferred Clients Only). Thanks for all the help Mr. DeWitt.
