Great attorney for custody and support
My case was fairly complicated and involved a high conflict divorce with associated custody and support issues that spanned a number of years. Michael was very knowledgeable about the process and communicated extremely well throughout the whole ordeal. He listened to my input and gave me realistic advice. Definitely recommended.

Reliable Attorney
Michael provided thorough guidance throughout my divorce. When I gave him deadlines he worked diligently to exceed expectations. Also, he responded to emails and phone calls promptly, which greatly reduced any concerns with the matter in which I was reaching out to him for guidance. I felt very comfortable and confident with Michael at the helm from start to finish. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney.

my life put in the hands of another man
I literally put my entire life and reason for breathing in the hands of another man. His name is Michael Gleeson, and my life is my little girl. This is the second time that I've used Attorny Gleeson to represent me in the case of custody for my little girl. Michael is by far the best Attorny in my opinion, that money can buy for a child custody case.. Direct and to the point, thorough in evidence and responsable with my money. Not wasting my retainer on nonsense and actually trying to save me money! By keeping contact to a limited but responsible state, and still accomplishing the task at hand! My daughters mother filed a ridiculous emergency order, putting a dead stop to my up and coming visitation with my daughter. I contacted Mr.Gleeson right away and he got things taken care of immediately. I got my daughter sooner than I was actually originally supposed to, and more! I have once again come out on top. Gaining more time with my daughter in the summer months, and actually achieving the goal of gaining the judges decision to make my daughters mother have to meet me half way to pick up and drop off my daughter. That is a goal that I've been fighting to accomplish for years! Now because of Micheals thoroughness and attention to detail in my case, that is all possible. I'm telling all of you dads out their right now, that if you are a father and you are trying to actually be a part of your child's life. You need to hire this man. Michael is a godsend and a blessing in my life. Without his representation I am almost certain that I would not be where I am today as far as the amount of visitation goes with my little girl. I have gained an entire extra week in the summer with my little girl because of Michael Gleeson. So Dads, do yourself a favor and hire this man if you actually want to get somewhere. Thank you so much Michale for your services. You better believe it when I say that I am keeping this man on retainer.

Michael Gleeson represented me in my divorce this past year. Attorney Gleeson was friendly, helpful, quick to return calls, reasonably priced and most importantly honest. I was happy to have Mike working for me. He made a difficult time in my life a little more bearable. I would highly recommend this attorney.

Child Custody
So far I am confident in Mr.Gleeson. although my custody modification is not yet over and has barely just begun, speaking to Michael, and expressing my needs and requests as a father, he seemed to listen and understand them very well. He never said no, you cant, or it won't ever happen. He has so far had an ear full to offer me, of what seems to be good knowledgable advice and salutions on what I am to do while approaching my custody modification head on. I will write a further review on Michael Gleeson when all is said an done. Also, I have had four attorneys sense 2008 regarding this same custody case, and not one of those attorneys had half the solutions or resolve that Michael had to offer me. All during our first and so far only, client attorney confrence about how we will go about getting me what I want. He had answers to my questions and salutions, directly off of the bat. Honest, understandable, legitimate, and clear answers. I am feeling confident for the first time In eight years of dealing with this and trying to make sure that i keep maintaining a stable and healthy relationship with my little princess. For this ive given him a 3 star rating for now. Will post again at a later date.
