Mike is an outstanding attorney!
He is very professional. He was always up to speed on my case, with accurate updates. He was always explaining "the next step".
Mike runs a tight ship!

The only reason I came out of the divorce process in one piece was due to Mr. Flore's professional behavior and unparalleled expertise. I honestly do not think one could find a better representative and I know one could not find a better firm as he has assembled a team of people that are all highly skilled, considerate, and tremendously helpful.
Having had some considerable insight into law (including some family law) and having assurances from my ex that the separation was going to be amicable, I originally hired Mr. Flores for a consult. I was immediately impressed by his patience and line of questioning - he provided all I needed and then some for an amicable divorce process. He had listened intently enough to foreshadow a few warning signs that I should have monitored, but in my hopes of moving on, I went about thinking that was going to be the only time I had to partake in his services.
A few weeks later and the separation went from amicable to disastrous in about a hundred different ways at once. Michael was there for me every step of the way, without hesitation, with that same patience I had seen in the consult, and with guidance and expertise that I am confident no other firm would have been able to attain. As the situation escalated, I found him (and his team) guiding me on the weekends, late at night, early in the morning, whenever I needed it. And I needed a lot of guidance for a long while.
The divorce itself is something that will take a possible lifetime for me to fully get over, but I know I would have been left in an unacceptable fiscal and emotional situation if I had picked any other firm which I had researched when my partner and I decided to separate.
I wish there was something else I could say to articulate how amazing he and his team are and how much they differ from other law firms in their care and patience with clients, but I can't find the right words. So I'll end this by saying 'thank you for guiding me through the most difficult time in my life and helping me fight successively what seemed to be an impossible and hopeless situation.'

I am very serious when I recommend not divorcing without Attorney Michael Flores by your side...I did not begin the divorce journey with Flores from the outset but hired him to represent me after several years of custody litigation dragged on unsuccessfully while I was being represented by my original attorney...knowing what I know now I would never again enter the courtroom without Flores...I personally learned why he is so well respected by his peers and the Family Court Judges here on Cape Cod...his knowledge of Massachusetts law is unparalleled. Flores listens, remembers the details, does the work, thinks things through, formulates multiple plans and keeps his word. Diligent is his middle name. He is thorough, organized and demonstrates solid documentation skills. His support staff is sharp, never dropped the ball and was always up to speed on what was going on in my case. My phone calls, emails and emergency situations were responded to immediately. Flores welcomed my constant questions, listened to my input and ideas and partnered with me. He is a true gentleman and his manner never failed to put me at ease---even in the stressful courtroom environment. That said, Flores is not timid in the courtroom and he always communicated his points across to the Judge in a strong, respectful, convincing and confident manner. He continually made me feel more secure when standing before that Judge's bench. But most of all, his compassion for my daughter, her situation and her best interest will always be the reason behind my sincerest gratitude toward him. Though you cannot ever anticipate the turns your divorce journey will take, with Michael Flores by your side you CAN count on the strongest and most diligent preparation and representation to steer you through it all with success...
