After a long marriage of 31 years my husband and I divorced. I was scared, anxious, confused and hurt. Mindy was incredible. I sat there before her and she made me feel like she cared and understood my situation.
When I was searching for a lawyer online I came upon her site and her statement on her page.."It started with love, why not end it the same way?" I was impressed with that. I found her to be kind and understanding but, tenacious. She had my back. She was thorough and professional.

Because my spouse of over 40 +years filed for divorce, I required the services of a lawyer specializing in Domestic Relations Law who was compassionate, sensitive, understanding and willing to learn, and appreciate the nuances and complexities of my less than ordinary circumstances together with the courage to venture into a new frontier of Family Law. After interviewing several well-respected Family Law attorneys, and even one that was a former head of the Michigan BAR, Family Law Section, I chose Ms Hitchcock, because, aside from her excellent reputation, innate professionalism, and the fact she is a mediator, she possessed a warm, engaging, compassionate understanding and acceptance of me as a LGBT person, and expressed the interest to learn more about our community and respectfully represent and advocate for my, and in turn, our collective interests. Ms. Hitchcock, also possesses the skill, understanding and diplomatic knowledge and acumen to work with opposing counsel to seek out a fair and equitable settlement for both parties. I highly recommend Attorney Hitchcock to anyone seeking professional legal representation in a domestic relations matter and invite members of the LGBT community to consider her as your attorney to handle your Family Law concerns including adoptions.

Mindy has been my attorney throughout a very nasty custody battle and she has been great throughout. When my case began, I felt defeated. It seemed as if the deck was stacked against me being a single dad. My child's mother wasn't allowing me to see my child at all. Mindy helped me tremendously through this uphill battle and I now spend nearly equal time with my child. It wasn't easy and I know it wasn't fun, but Mindy was vigilant in making sure that I got what any parent SHOULD have. She dealt with opposing counsel that was underhanded and scheming and still came out on top. She has been easy to talk to from the beginning and has been great about keeping me updated on my case and getting back to me quickly when I've had problems. She is a fantastic attorney and a great person. I'm sure a lot of lawyers will say that they truly CARE for their clients; but Mindy doesn't just say it. She means it. She's given me what I would have been denied otherwise: A relationship with my son. That is something that can't be quantified in words.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Mindy and I are opposing counsel on a divorce with minor children. She has been a very worthy opponent, yet remained reasonable in her approach. I would not hesitate to recommend her to family or friends if they were in need of legal services.
