Best attorney in Memphis
My husband and I have have both used him for our cases. He’s kind, compassionate, and extremely thorough. In one of my cases, the judge was about to allow something that Mr. Flexsenhar pointed out was incorrect. The judge pulled out his law book, looked it up and said “well Mr. Flexsenhar you are correct”. My ex-husband wasn’t very happy about it!! But I was thrilled and very impressed that my attorney seemed to be more knowledgeable than the judge!! I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flexsenhar!!

Awesome mediator
Went to mediation to try and settle child support/visitation outside of court. Mr flexsenhar was a very friendly, knowledgeable mediator who made the whole ordeal seem less daunting along with my lawyer. He has a very laid back atmosphere & approach to how he deals with the clients and lawyers. I would recommend him as a mediator to anyone who needs one.

Child Custody
Mike was my 3rd attorney, however was my 1st attorney since my divorce several years ago. He was referred to me by a good friend. Mike is a fair and honest guy with a brilliant legal mind. In my case Mike was able to clean up my original parenting plan and stop a lot of the unnecessary drama my ex was causing for my child. I also ended up with 50% more time with my child. I would recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for representation from someone who cares and will fight on your behalf. He will always take calls and answer questions even after your case is over. I consider Mike as my attorney to this day and won't hesitate to call on him again if I need to.

Childsupport Case
As I pondered the worth of legal representation, I came to realize the importance of legal representation, in child-support hearings. Michael A. Flexsenhar,Jr., skill as an attorney far exceeded my expectations in which words cannot describe. Innitially, my retroactive child support was roughly $70, 000. My back time was so high because the mom waited 14 years to put me on child support, thus making my case very complicated. Mr. Flexsenhar’s resourceful ability persuaded the judge to reduce the retroactive child support down to roughly $50,000. He saved me $20,000! I would foremost like to thank GOD for Mr.Flexsenhar‘s wisdom to articulate, and to convey to the judge my position as a father. If you need a champion to fight in the lion’s den, then the choice should be obvious; God to be your champion, and Mr. Flexsenhar to execute God’s will. Don’t suffer in silence! Call Flexsenhar, he can minimize your losses, like he did for me. 8/10/2015

Honest Lawyer
After 2 lawyers that didn't help me at all, I am so glad I have found Mr. Flexsenhar. He was always honest and straightforward. He genuinely cared about my case and the best interests of my child. He kept in touch with me and was always prepared when we went to court. If I ever have any more issues, I will definitely hire him again.

Divorce in process, had to pick up from where I had fired the first attorney
Great guy. He gave me excelent advice and tried to lead me down the path that would be quickest and least damaging for me and my 2 children. I wanted to push harder and try to get full custody. . After a year and a half. I ended up with what , Michael told me was my bset possible deal, A year earlier. I wasted time and money. Listen to him it will save you a lot of grief.

Child Support Adjustment
Mike did a terrible work on the adjustment of child support case I used him for. He used my ex-wife's income from 2009 as her current income and did not ask for any documentation on her LLC. I doubt he is up to date on 1240-2-4 he should have used that information to put his client in a better position. He did not.

Office sucks
I have dealt with this office before and there is a very rude, unwelcoming young lady at the front desk. when I arrived she was on her personal phone didn’t look up just asked if I was there to make a payment? confused I explained I was there to meet with mike, she told me he wasn’t back yet in a rude tone. that was it, never said anything else, or when he’d be back. just stared at her phone & got into an argument with someone on the phone. Mr. Flexsenhar himself was great, but he needs to reevaluate his office staff.

Run away
Mr Flexsenhar represented my son in a divorce. He confused my sons case ( who had no children) with a case where children were involved. He was over thirty minutes late for a meeting with the opposing attorney. He gave no effort in properly defending my son. The worst representation he could have possible had.
Response from Michael Flexsenhar November 4, 2016
Regarding this negative review, I have no idea who this gentleman is referring to. I handle several hundred cases each year, and always endeavor to properly represent my clients to the very best of my ability. Of course, there are times when attorneys with a significant volume of cases may run late to appointments or court hearings, and I am no exception. When this does occur, I always call my client and opposing counsel to inform them. It is significant to note that this negative review was not made by my client, but rather someone who purports to be my client's parent; therefore, I presume my actual client was pleased with my efforts.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known Mike since I started practicing in Memphis. He has a reputation for being highly skilled and compassionate toward his clients. He is an a excellent litigator and always displays the highest level of professionalism. He is well respected by everyone I know in the Memphis legal community. Recently Mike mediated a difficult case for me and another lawyer. I had not thought it possible that this case could be resolved, due to the toxic emotions involved and the fact that one of the parties desired to move away with the children. Mike worked hard late into the evening to help these parties reach a fair settlement. I am impressed with Mike as both a lawyer and a mediator."
Family Attorney | May 06
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Mike for at least 20 years and am always confident that I can refer any client with a family law or juvenile court problem to him. When I refer people, my reputation is on the line as well and that is why I am very particular about which attorneys I recommend. I have no qualms at all about Mike because I have had feedback from referrals many times always positive. He is most highly recommended."
