I cannot be more pleased with my experience with the Fisher and Fisher Law firm. Michelle Farley is EXACTLY what I wanted and needed in a lawyer. I had very specific reasons for hiring Michelle over all the attorneys I initially screened (about 4 others).
1) Most importantly, I got the impression she understood my case and really cared about the outcome of the case. While I don't want anyone to take on the burden of stress my case inherently brings with it, I value the idea that my attorney feels empathy towards me, my daughter, and the struggles we've been through over the course of this case.
2) She is serious. When I say this, I mean that she does not come across as brash or impulsive. I don't need a cowboy in court. One of the other guys I consulted with really had a let me at em attitude, and while I appreciated his vigor, I need a lawyer that mostly shares my temperament and can be more of a balanced person when I am losing my patience.
I used to think...and I was often told that I must have an infinite well of patience. The last 4 years have depleted that almost completely and my reserves are in a critical state.
3) Michelle was by far the most professional lawyer I encountered. When I say professional, I am not talking about a cut-throat, win-at-all-costs kind of lawyer. I mean she was organized and gave it to me straight without being overly optimistic or pessimistic (The first lawyer I visited almost had me convinced I was absolutely screwed in local courts and wouldn't get justice until we were on Capitol Hill). I dealt with the cut-throat lawyer types on the opposing side and while the well-being of my daughter and my rights as a father are of the utmost importance to me, I wanted to fight my fight in court without resorting to making up malicious lies and slander. I need to win with integrity.
I hired Michelle to be the experienced guide through the Monroe County court system. All of my experience in court had been in Adams County, and I understood that every jurisdiction is different and ever judge is different. I chose Michelle and still utilize Michelle, because I trust her. I needed help fighting my fight, because I am not equipped to do it on my own. If there is a way to prove my case in court, I trust the Michelle would do the research to find it and would tell me...or reign me in when I am hot-headed and asking the impossible.
I am not one to jump from lawyer to lawyer. I need to build a relationship with my lawyer. My relationship with Fisher and Fisher (Michelle Farley) is solid and growing stronger every time I need counsel. I cannot recommend her and her firm highly enough.
