Practice areas

 I have been an attorney in the State of Ohio for over 26 years assisting clients with the following issues:

a) Family Law (Including divorces, dissolutions of marriage, spousal & child support, and parenting issues).

b) Bankruptcy (Including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13).

c) Estate Administration Procedures & Probate.

d) Planning Documents (Last Wills & Testaments, Powers of Attorney and Living Wills).

e) Real Estate.

I believe my best trait is that I care about resolving your legal needs.  I commit to my clients to achieve the best possible outcome for them.  My clients comment about my passion and being available for them whenever they have questions or issues.  I strive everyday to use my best efforts so that my clients receive timely and quality legal services.  I receive great satisfaction when a client thanks me after our mission to resolve a legal problem has been completed. 

I have been married for over 26 years. I graduated from the University of Kentucky for my undergraduate degree and from the University of Cincinnati College of Law. My wife graduated from the College of Mt. St. Joseph with a degree in nursing. My wife currently works for the Mayfield Clinic as a nurse care coordinator.  My wife and I have a daughter, who has also graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in engineering.

I am originally from Kentucky where I was raised on my family's farm. Growing up on a farm taught me the value of hard work, producing a quality product, and providing customer care & service. These are the values that I use everyday in my legal practice.

Fair, firm and consistent. Great Lawyer.
Mr Bailey represented me for my divorce, then again for the probate of my grandmother's estate. He is very knowledgeable, professional, thorough, organized, and patient. He had to send me many reminders and prompts to keep things moving along, which he did gently, but firmly. I would highly recommend Mr Bailey, and fully intend to utilize his services if needed in the future.

Michael handled my bankruptcy in a professional and expeditious manner. His attention to detail and knowledge/experience in navigating this process made it so much easier. He is transparent, thorough, and compassionate. The end result was much better than I could have an anticipated. He helped me learn, grow, and move forward to a better place in my life.

Review of Mike Bailey
I have -- in the past -- used the legal services of Mike Bailey on a number of occasions. He was most helpful in securing the necessary paperwork which was necessary in beginning a new business.; he has -- in subsequent years -- helped in finalizing Wills and Powers of Attorney -- in addition, he has been a most trusted source in providing legal information to complete an estate settlement. There are many attorneys in this area from whom to choose -- many who, no doubt, are proficient attorneys; however, I have always been satisfied with the advice which was provided by Mike Bailey. I feel extremely comfortable with Mike and I do not find any reason not to use him for any legal issue in the future. He is an extremely pleasant and knowledgable individual. .He gets an A+ from me.

I came to Mr. Bailey with questions about my home property deed and what I needed to do to remove my deceased husbands name. He explained everything that I needed to do very thoroughly so that I completely understood. I was very comfortable with his professional approach. The process went very smoothly and efficiently. I highly recommend Mr. Bailey and plan to use his legal services in the future.

Outstanding Lawyer!
Michael Bailey was great to work with. Very professional, strictly by the book, and extremely knowledgeable. We had a challenging will that needed to be handled and Michael helped us through every step of the process. Made us feel comfortable with some difficult situations and his fees were very reasonable. We were confident that everything was performed impeccably. Would highly recommend!!

I obtained the services of Mr. Bailey to provide me a Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney, Health Care Power of Attorney, and my Last Will. Michael was absolutely wonderful to me and made me feel at ease during this process. He wrote up some drafts that I went through and he completely explained everything to me and was extremely patient and actually fun to work with. I would certainly recommend Mr. Bailey to anyone looking for an attorney! He was 100% great!! I hope to use him and Mr. Gundersen again in the future.

Highly Recommended
I would highly recommend Michael Bailey for your legal needs. Michael helped us through the difficult process of creating all the documents associated with our estate plan. It's a rather emotional and detailed process and he certainly was patient and understanding as he helped and advised us. Michael answered all our questions with concise easy to understand answers and provided perspective on things we had not even thought of. Michael’s friendly and professional no pressure demeanor certainly made the process easier. He is as good as it gets!

Mr. Bailey was recommended to me by my Uncle. My first impression of Mr. Bailey was very pleasant. His soft spoken voice put me at ease as to what I needed his services for. I had no problem telling him how he can help me. He listened and things progressed from there. everything that Mr. Bailey asked of me to help me with my case went really smoothly without any doubt in my mind. Mr. Bailey was a great person to work with. He was able to get me the satisfaction I needed to move forward in my life. Just to add also his assistant Ms. Mary I think was her name it has been a while was very pleasant and always very nice when I called the office. Great people to work with. :)

BEST FAMILY LAW FIRM IN TOWN
My husband and I hired Mike Bailey for our Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. He is very professional and compassionate. He always made us feel comfortable and always answered any questions we had honestly and on a timely basis. After being associated with him for over 5 years now, I can honestly say I would never hire anyone else for family legal needs.
