I put myself in a tight situation, while going through a nasty divorce, thinking I could do it myself. I could not do it myself! Mike came in and did an outstanding job getting me out of the hole I had dug for myself. Lesson to be learned, don't do it yourself go to Mike! He then help me again a year or two later to adjust my parenting plan and modify my child support to reflect my down grade in employment. He did a great job by mediating with my "ex" and things went flawlessly! I would trust Mike with my life, he has definitely been a life saver, and I cannot thank him enough for being there for me in some very tight and serious situations. THANKS!

MIke Gainer is an attorney who seems more balanced and transparent than your typical family law attorney. Speaking with Mr. Gainer reminds me of speaking to friends or family members who were judges or attorney generals - his outlook and advice is deeply considered and designed to be useful and well taken.
Mr. Gainer will not trick you into using his legal services as some attorneys can by tailoring their emotional responses while inferring unlikely outcomes. Mr. Gainer speaks truth from a well considered perspective of experience and hard-won legal knowledge.
His dialogue is coupled with wisdom, kindness and compassion for your situation - and a straightforward bias free assessment of how the court may likely view your plea.
I recommend Mike Gainer without reservation as a competent and accomplished legal tactician and man of letters.

Mike has given us a voice in court. He articulately, professionally, and accurately advocates for us in court and is supportive throughout our continual case. He listens to our concerns and offers professional guidance that has proved to be invaluable. We no longer feel like we are just “another case” we feel like he genuinely cares about what happens. We are dealing with an opposing party and representation that is significantly confrontational and resistant to attempts to mediate and resolve issues outside of court. Mike has dealt with this situation with the upmost of professional and ethical conduct at all times. Our confidence in Mike is high and only continues to grow with each issue that he tackles involving our case.

Mr. Gainer responded quickly to my first phone call and gave some good advice and peace of mind regarding my child custody matters as a father.

I have refered friends to Mike. I always felt like he was and still is there for me. He took an impossible situation and made it bearable. He explained why things were being done the way they were and took the time to make sure I was comfortable with the information I was given. Thank You Mike your an amazing lawyer.

Michael helped me through the difficult and emotional time of my divorce. He is always upfront and absolutely trustworthy. I came to respect Michael early in the divorce process, as it became apparent to me that he has a ethical standard seldom encountered. I would reccomend highly for anyone needing a Family Law Lawyer.

I am a former client of Mr Gainer. I feel like he is definately not patient enought to work with the special needs of the elderly. We spent a very long time with him and accomplished nothing. When asked if a family member could sit in with us to help us understand, he refused. He would not return phone calls. Luckily, not all attorneys lack the compassion that Mr. Gainer does.

I hired Mr. Gainer to work with my elderly parents. My parents wanted me to be with them during meetings because they are elderly and hard of hearing. He refused to let me sit in with them even though they asked that I be there. My parents left his appointments exhaused and very confused. We ended up switching to another attorney who was very compassionate and made this difficult process very easy on my parents.
