Michael Langsdorf is very knowledgable and well respected in the courts. He won't play dirty, but he doesn't need to because he's so darn smart and experienced. I used him when my ex was job hopping to avoid child support and making lots of false allegations against me for abuse and neglect in his attempt to gain custody. It all backfired on him. Mr Langsdorf helped me during a time period when I was desperate, and after a previous attorney didn't have a clue! I am forever grateful to him for his great advice and representaton! My ex's attorney played very dirty, (he was from a different town), but Mr Langsdorf wouldn't participate or come down to his level. He played "wise," not dirty. I really think the courts respected that, and we were very pleased with the outcome in the courts. After more than a year of working with him, and spending many hours in his office and court, I knew I could totally trust his advice. This occurred a few years ago, but I'm sure he's even better now than he was six years ago.
