Less than a year ago, I was on the other side of this forum looking for the best lawyer to support me into the worst time of my life. Today I'm glad that I've trusted these reviews and that I've hired Mr. Cutler. His highly professionalism, deep knowledge, curtesy and no nonsense approach, has greatly helped my confidence on every step and bottom line, win a very fair settlement of my divorce. Thank you, Mr. Cutler and your wonderful staff.

I met with 6 lawyers before I met Michael Cutler. I spoke to Michael on the phone first and know that he was the lawyer for me.
When I met with Michael at his office, he was upfront and honest with me. One of the reasons I picked him is because he told me exactly how he thought my case would go. It was basic and it seemed simple. 50% of assets and 50% with the kids. The other lawyers were telling me things that just did not make sense. The other lawyers were telling me that we needed to be super aggressive and basically fight for everything. At the end of the day when my divorce was final, things turned out pretty much exactly the way Michael explained they would from day 1.
If I have one complaint about Michael is that he is always relaxed, which is what you want in a lawyer. I'm a high strung person and need to know every detail. I'm not sure how he keeps his composure sometimes when dealing with Ex's attorney. He was stern and never gave in to the ridiculous demands of the Ex's attorney.
One of the hardest things about divorce is picking the right attorney. Until the day I signed the divorce papers, I always had doubts. Now I have no doubts.
If you are reading this review and feel like you need to know more information about Michael, please call me. Call Michael, have your free phone conversation with him and then ask him for my phone number. I'm willing to share my experience with Michael and my experience with my divorce.

Michael Cutler was a rock solid support for me during my divorce. He listened to my situation, never passed judgement, put me at ease and provided me with the absolute confidence in him to get me through the painful, challenging journey. He was thorough, available, supportive, professional and worked to resolve my most important issues: a clearly defined parenting schedule, stability for my children. He was the best in a grueling 8 hour mediation session. I am so thankful for the day I walked into his office!

When I came to Cutler and Associates I was lost and intimidated by the prospect of divorce. Michael quickly put me at ease and explained everything that I could expect to happen. It has been a very long process (10 months) and Michael has kept me informed every step of the way. In mediation he defended me and made sure my interests were protected! I would highly recommend Cutler and Associates if you are in need if outstanding representation.

Michael ,served me well as my attorney. I fired my first lawyer and thank goodness I did. Mike was recommended to me from a lawyer who did not handle divorices. Mike is honest, straight forward about what is going to happen and made me feel the confidence in him that everything would work out. If you are looking for a great divorice lawyer make sure you contact Mike and just talk to him and I know you will agree.

After dealing with my first attorney who was less than stellar a friend of mine referred me to Michael cutler. The opposition attorney was so aggressive and mean and was trying to push me around but Michael kept me so comfortable with his confidence and his vast knowledge base. Not only did I end up winning the case but I didn't lose my mind along the way thank you so much Michael I'm so grateful I found you !!

I was fortunate to find MICHAEL H. CUTLER. I live in NH purchased $9,500 in auto parts in MI, never received the parts. I had talked to police and other lawyers, no one would help or would guarantee anything was feeling pretty hopeless. Found Mike, he saw the process threw, communication was never lacking and I received all my money back. Couldn't say enough good things about how he handled this Thanks Mike

Mr. Cutler had been hired to perform some particularly complicated estate and probate work for me this past year, and he did a magnificant job in a timely manner. I have also utilized Mr. Cutler's services for other legal issues over the past few years as I have two businesses that often require legal assistance. I would highly recommend him for either personal or business legal issues.

Mr. Cutler has completed or reviewed several contracts for my business. In each instance he was knowledgeable, thorough, and responsive to my questions and concerns. He always keeps me up to date on where we are at in the process and how long I can expect turn around time to be.

Mike and I are about to wrap up a divorce with minor children. He has been a very worthy opponent, yet remained reasonable in his approach. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family or friends if they were in need of legal services.
Loren Dickstein, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I have been referring Mr. Cutler work for approximately 10 years. After about 5 years worth of consistent positive feedback from my clients. I decided to hire Mr. Cutler for my own personal legal issues. What a great attorney! He is effective, efficient, aggressive and highly respected by the courts and other attorneys in the area. Essentially, he treated me like his own family. I endorse him with the highest possible confidence.
