The situation with my company was very complex and I thought I would never see the light at the of the tunnel. Michelle, however, was very supportive and always reachable to me. She made the process smooth and helped me overcome my debt with her legal advice. I believe her expertise helped me get my life back!

Michelle was honestly a blessing. She was consistent throughout my entire experience with her and laid out several different options that would be possible for my personal situation. Being young, I was confused by a few things and she was more than willing to take the extra time to really break things down for me. Thank you Michelle!!

I could not have had a better experience dealing with Michelle. She gave me all the possible options I needed to help alleviate my school debt. Her confidence and eagerness to assist my every need assuaged all my fears about being able to pay down my debt. We also discussed certain measures available for me to refinance my student loans and cut down on the interest that these loans accrue. Now I feel it is most certainly possible to have a future free of student debt. Thanks again for your expertise and guidance on my journey to regain financial independence.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Michelle and I sparred on several bankruptcy matters (I represented the banks at that time) and I always found her to be an extremely well-prepared and knowledgable and persistent opponent. She is respected throughout the bankruptcy community.

Michelle is truly a lawyer who goes the extra mile for her clients. Not only does she expertly perform the essential service of representing someone in a bankruptcy case, she is the rare lawyer who follows-up to be sure the credit report has been properly updated and that creditors are not continuing to attempt collection after the discharge as some are known to do. She relates well to her clients and is well respected by other lawyers in her field.
