We had a wonderful experience working with Michele to develop a contract with our sperm donor and his partner. She and her staff were warm, non-judgmental and approachable for questions big and small. They explained the entire process clearly and helped us think through important scenarios that we would not have thought of on our own. When we found ourselves facing a situation that required swift action (and over the holidays, no less!), Michele and her staff went above and beyond to make sure we could get the contract completed and signed in time. Throughout the process, we always felt like she wanted the best for our family over the long-term and we really appreciate her experience and counsel.

We have been working with Michele Zavos and her firm for over five years and couldn't be happier. Estate planning is an important process that many families avoid because of the uncomfortable feelings that get stirred up when imagining a worst case scenario that involves your kids. From the moment we met with her, we knew we had come to the right place. Michele has a way of putting you at ease, explaining complex legal issues in simple and clear language. She has been a wonderful advisor and advocate, steering us through the estate planning process and allowing us to feel secure in our decisions. We went back to her again this year to revise/update our documents, as she had recommended, and we had the same lovely experience. She was also great at coordinating plans with our financial planner and accountant, assuring that our decisions were supported holistically. If only every doctor, bank, financial planner and accountant could provide such clear, consistent and helpful advice and service like Michele offers, we'd have found Utopia.

Ms. Zavos handled a complex and precedent setting matter for us. We had a hearing and her legal research was praised by the Judge. She is a great attorney and did wonderful work for us

Ms. Zavos and her team researched the family court legal history and found elements that other attorneys had overlooked. Her work set a precedent in this area. The judge praised her essential research and was genuinely in awe of her and our case. He called us back into the court to express his sincere thanks for giving him the opportunity to bring the case to justice. We will be forever grateful to her.

Working with Michele Davos has given me and my family the confidence that if the worst - or just the bumps of life - befall us, we are protected. More than that, she has ensured that we breathe easily all the rest of the time. As a lesbian couple with a new child in a changing landscape of marriage equality it is difficult to know what we need to do to ensure we have full protection no matter where we are and to anticipate what protections we will need as the legal landscape continues to shift. Michele offers not only great legal advice, she is at the top of her field and can offer top notch guidance on the possible changing policy landscape and anticipate the legal protections we will need in various eventualities. I have and will continue to recommend Michele to many friends - gay and straight - as someone who will put the best interests of their family first.

I have been a client of Michelle's for 20+ years. 2014 found me in a very stressful situation. Michelle and her staff offered great, compassionate advice and followed through with a winning legal strategy. It felt great to have smart, caring people in my corner. I’m very happy with the way Michelle handled everything!

My wife and I came to Michele after being let down by another estates lawyer. She was patient, kind, responsive, and expert on all the various elements we needed to prepare for our estate package. She and her team helped us through the process efficiently and effectively, and we feel like our affairs are in excellent order having worked with Michele. I could not recommend her more highly.

Michele and her team were instrumental with our adoption! We were feeling frustrated and defeated in our journey to have a child. After one visit with Michele we were optimistic and excited. She pointed us in the right direction and was there for us when we needed her. We are extremely grateful to her and all of her staff. We can't recommend the Zavos Juncker Law Group enough!!!

Michele Zavos and her group have helped me with two adoptions in the last 2 years. The day I met Michele she was returning from a long trip and agreed to meet on a Saturday morning. When I walked in to her office she made me feel so welcome. I was treated as if I was a valued friend she had just welcomed into her home. The entire staff were friendly, professional and knowledgeable of adoption law. I was always kept me well informed and happy to say both adoptions have been completed successfully. Thank you Michele and team. You truly are a blessing.

I have had the benefit of working with Michele on both my personal needs - second parent adoption - and as a resource for my clients. Her work is consistently excellent, and her knowledge of family law, especially as pertains to LGBT family law, is deep and broad. Because she has decades of experience, and been hands-on through the dizzying legislative changes regarding LGBT law, her knowledge is second to none. Her documents are clearly written, and hit all the points I look for as a financial advisor seeking good estate planning for my clients, straight or gay. I have found her judgment to be very trustworthy because of the depth of her experience, and I tell my clients - just do what Michele tells you!
