Great representation
Michael Dyer was one of the first calls I made during an extremely difficult period of my life. I had zero knowledge about separation and divorce. All I knew was I needed it done and with guidance. My very first call with him he gave me an explanation with great detail about what it would entail and the proper steps to take in order to proceed with my divorce. He made sure I felt comfortable and that my needs were met as well as making sure I had everything to gain and wasn’t being taken advantage of from my ex partner. Mike doesn’t only exceed his expectations as a lawyer but made me feel safe as for someone like myself with emotional and learning disabilities. I appreciated his willingness to be patient with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer to represent them including friends, family, peers. Thank you again Michael for making one of the most terrifying, difficult things for me an easy process.

This review is worth reading!
I'm new to writing online reviews, nonetheless I hope anyone looking to retain Mr. Dyer will read this post. For the last 12 years, I have been dealing with lawyers, both professionally and in my personal life, unfortunately. I trust Mr. Dyer and his firm like I trust my family. Anytime I had an issue pop up throughout the duration of my cases, they were quick to come to bat for me and they always produced the best result. It didn't take long for me to learn they take pride and care in all cases, large or small, high-profile or just your average person. After witnessing Mr. Dyer fiercely battle for my children, I was not surprised when I later learned he too was a parent. This gentleman treats his clients like they're family, and he fights for them like they're family. Additionally, he has taken the expert knowledge of the field and communication capability to a level of perfection - this was particularly helpful for me as our court systems legal lingo can most times be difficult to follow. It's truly remarkable to witness him manipulate the law so exquisitely and brilliantly. I am very happy with my results with Mr. Dyer and his firm, and I am grateful for their loyalty and compassion in my family's darkest time of need. I will indubitably proceed to retain Mr. Dyer in future cases, but for now will enjoy the peacefulness that his hard work and dedication recently awarded my children and I. Hats off to you, Mike!

Truly the best in the county
I have had the pleasure of hiring and firing 6 lawyers over the course of a painful 12 year process. Only one got the job done and it was Michael. If you want to get your situation dealt with properly and efficiently, call him.

The Best!
Going through a divorce can be a painful, tedious, financially draining process, so having the right attorney from the beginning to the end to give you the correct legal advice, steer you in the right direction, simplify the process, and fight like heck for you is imperative - Michael Dyer is that attorney! I retained Attorney Michael Dyer to represent me in my divorce proceedings and I received excellent representation from start to finish. I found the attorney to be very personable with a great sense of humor, sharp witted with a bright legal mind; he is a seasoned attorney who is extremely enthusiastic about representing and receiving the best outcome for his clients. The beauty of having a skilled attorney is that there are limited surprises, and he can guide you confidently through the ebbs and flows of the case. Attorney Dyer worked tirelessly for me, and he did not fall prey to all the gamesmanship and manipulations employed by the other side but kept his eye firmly on the prize which was to get the very best settlement for me, which he absolutely did. Attorney Dyer and his staff were always well prepared and as such I was always well prepared through my prep sessions with him and through communications received from his practice. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the case and I thank Attorney Dyer for all his hard work and dedication. Trust me, you want to have Attorney Michael Dyer in your corner fighting for you when the stakes are this high!

Very skilled and hardworking
Mr Dyer was very professional and worked tirelessly on my case. As we got closer to trial, Mr Dyer was working till 11pm on my case and his performance in trialed showed. We were more prepared then the other side and made my Husband's lawyer look incompetent. We had exhibits and evidence of all of my Husband's false allegations. My Husband is a narcissist and he was willing to make up things about me. At the end of the trial, the Judge was frustrated with my Husband and the Judge could see who i had to deal with in the marriage. Finally, the world sees my Husband for who he is and how he has treated me and my family. Mr Dyer is a fighter and his skill and knowledge of the law was evident in trial. If anyone needs a hardworking, skilled lawyer, Mr. Dyer is the only one you should hire.

50-50 custody
Mike and his staff were amazing and was able to get me 50-50 custody of my kids. She wanted supervised visits which we successfully fought. I wouldn't have been able to get through this case without the help of Mike Dyer

My Savior
Mr. Dyer helped me when my Husband only offered me $2000 a month in alimony. Without Mr. Dyer, my Husband would have been able to leave me without an consequences. At the conclusion of trial, i was awarded $8000 in permanent alimony plus child support. My Husband even tried to reconcile because of the skill and knowledge Mr. Dyer argued while representing me

Pension Saved
I hired Mr Dyer to amend a court order that was over 20 years old. Mr Dyer was able to do just that in a very expeditious manner after contacting my ex-wife and filing at the County court. As a result, I will be getting my full pension starting next year.

Best Lawyer in Town
I hired Mr Dyer because he cane highly recommended by my friend. My Husband is a general contractor and works under the table. After 22 years of marriage, he cheated on me and wanted to get rid of me. Mr Dyer made sure that even though the marriage was over, his obligation was not. The entire marriage my Husband has been telling me he’s broke, but after we went through his finances, we discovered he was lying to me the whole time. My Husband even tried to get back together. I don’t know what I would have done without Mr Dyers help !!!!
