Michael does have an amazing knowledge of the law and has a way with calming his clients. He is a good guy. I can't say enough about his associate Lindsey. She by far is the best lawyer I have ever seen. I trusted her every word and looked at her like a friend. I would recommend anyone to this firm because of michaeles knowledge of the law, no bs attitude, on top of the amazing coworker lawyer Lindsey who truly huided me the best way possible and I will forever be grateful to. Thank you all again. Signed one happy client.

Making the final decision to divorce my husband was difficult and I consulted with Michael Strauss for many years before actually having him served. It was the best decision I have made and Michael guided me throughout the entire process. He was tough when necessary and kept me and my children’s best interest as the main focus. I would recommend Michael and his firm any day.

I can't say enough positive things about Michael Strauss. (Or his tough, mama bear-like paralegal, Lori)
My ex-husband was/is an extremely high conflict, narcissistic personality (Google it), extremely controlling and abusive, and within about thirty seconds of our initial meeting, Michael knew EXACTLY what he was dealing with. He met all my fears and concerns with a swift and confident supportive argument. I truly felt "advocated" for.
He also had an almost immediate sense of what level of emotional stress I had the capacity to endure and took that into careful consideration when handling my case.
He priced me fairly, didn't sugarcoat anything or draw things out, returned emails and questions within a very short time frame, and in general just really made me feel like he appreciated my business and took my case and my questions very seriously. You might think that all that should be a given, but you would be surprised how many people complain about their divorce attorneys.
I am now several years post decree and will shortly be in need of a revised parenting agreement due to life changes. (marriage, job change, etc.) I'm so glad I know exactly where to go for help.

Michael Strauss’ optimism and expertise comforted me greatly as I faced this life-changing divorce. He effortlessly and positively responded to all of my questions. As we faced down the 18 month schedule of court dates, he assured me the end was in sight.

I did not meet Michael until after I hired he and his partner to handle my post-decree custody issue. At first I found him to be very direct and competent. That changed with the situation of my case, however. As it became more complicated I found Michael's response time to be average at best. I have a file with 10 emails that were never answered. I have many more that took over a week to respond to. Often times his answers in emails or in person were contradictory to each other, which left me confused as to the status of my case and what direction he and his partner were taking to try to win. The only times his response was timely is when was asking for payment, which I never defaulted on.
He did not notify me when he received notice of a petition that was going to be filed, nor did he tell me of the filing. The petition was found in my file over a month later (the 28 days to respond had passed).

As with any divorce, this was a very emotional time and Michael handled my case with my best interests at heart. He was compassionate, understanding, a fierce advocate for me during a very difficult time, extremely knowledgable of the laws and a stellar professional the entire way. He was always quick to return phone calls, emails and/or texts. Always! My questions/fears were answered. His paralegal Laurie is amazing as well. She was always on top of things and even great at lendin g an ear! Michael knew the laws better than the other attorneys--my ex went through two. He researched other cases similar to mine and had an execution route for every scenario. We were prepared for trial, but in the end my ex finally settled. Michael is very respected among his peers and knows pretty much everyone. I have recommended him to multiple people for family law. I wouldn't trust anyone else as I want others to feel secure going into a very emotional time. He will take care of you, this is not a game to him, he understands these are people's lives in his hands.

Michael did everything that I asked and more. When I called and left a message he called me back right away ,when I sent an email I got a email back within 30 minutes. Michael knew the laws more than my exes lawyer knew. Michael was recommended to me by friend and he's even better than she said she was. Michael saved me a lot of money, time and grief with my divorce and I won my case thanks to Michael. If you are looking for a divorce lawyer see Michael first don't waste time interviewing other lawyers. Michael came highly recommended and he did not disappoint.

Getting divorced is a very difficult time in ones life. Not knowing where to turn or whom to trust is a big concern. Never having needed a lawyer before I was scared, afraid and clueless how to find one.
A woman that I became friends with had a husband that was a divorce attorney. One day I just came out and asked for his number. That was the moment I knew I had found the best attorney I could have hoped for. Michael Strauss is a very compasionate, caring, trustworthy attorney. He made me feel like I mattered and that he was going to do the best he could for me.
My divorce took a long time to settle. There NEVER was a phone call that was not answered or a question to small to ask. I always felt well informed and comfortable when I had to go to court.
Going through the most difficult time in my life was made easier knowing I had Michael Strauss representing me.

No one goes into a divorce with a clear head and there are always tons of emotions clouding the big picture. Mike did a fantastic job of helping me clearly see all of my options while respecting the huge emotional roller coaster I was experiencing. He was a rock for me, always remaining calm. His very prompt responses to my questions helped take away some anxiety and I felt like I knew what was happening every step of the way. He is extremely intelligent and its obvious that he is well respected. I know 2 other people who he has helped that would share the same comments.

Michael took the time to understand my situation, assess our options and explain them to me very clearly. I said 'assess OUR options' because Michael really made me feel like he was in it with me. I would recommend working with Michael without hesitation.
