Outstanding Work by Attorney Michael Pierce
Michael met with my wife and me at least three separate times, as we updated our wills, power of attorney and advanced healthcare directive. Before we even discussed the "paperwork", he was so careful to discuss all of the alternatives on trustees, investment considerations and our own personal needs and directives. Never once did we feel like we were being handed a "boiler plate" or "cookie cutter" solution to our wills and other estate matters. The staff at Pierce/Hughes was extremely attentive and followed through with meeting arrangements, copies of the needed paperwork and other items to make this necessary process bearable.Through Mike and his team, we have been able to achieve peace of mind and also know that he will be there in the future for us and our children if needed.

Avoid this attorney. Your not number 1 he is.
Took advantage of my situation and was not thorough in expaining or with guidence regarding divorse issues. I felt that he was in the game just to make easy money and did not fight hard for me. I never felt that he was working in my best interest.
Response from Michael Pierce May 1, 2012
It is very difficult to respond to someone who does not indentify themselves for something that may or may not have occurred three or more years ago. I strive to ensure client satisfaction in all matters I handle. I do not guarantee results but I do strive to represent my clients to the best of my abilities
