When geography made it impractical for me to stay with my original divorce attorney, my attorney recommended Michael to me as the best she knew. She was right. Michael was thorough and professional, patient, understanding and a good listener. Just as important, he then took my situation to heart and planned a strategy that protected my interests and those of my child while still being fair to my spouse, defended me against unseemly behavior by my spouse and spouse's attorney, then came through again two years after the divorce was final when further misbehavior by my ex required a return to court to defend my custody rights. For knowledge, ethics, bedside manner, fair and unpadded fees (although not low – you get what you pay for), and optimum results, I highly recommend him.

Michael is by far one of the most experienced and remarkable divorce attorneys I have ever encountered. He has served as an excellent mentor to me regarding family law practice. I had the privilege of clerking for him back in law school and witnessed his exceptional litigation skills in the courtroom. He truly cares about his clients. I can attest to this because I, too, have been a client of his going through my own divorce. Michael put me at ease throughout this difficult process. Few attorneys have the acquired skill to meet both the client's expectations and also reach a fair and effective resolution. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone looking for an exceptional divorce attorney.

I had been through a few lawyers before I came to Mr. Chiero, and had always had issues with lawyers over-charging me or not taking my issues seriously. Mr. Chiero seemed to quickly understand my issues with support and maintenance, and assured me that he could easily handle the case. He just kind of has a way with words, to where I was very quickly aware of details of my situation that other lawyers had left out or decided that I didn't need to know. When he was in court, he always paid attention to the littlest detail and was completely fearless in his defense of my case. I would refer any of my friends or family to him. I have had small issues over the years after my case was finished and he is always easy to contact, helpful, intelligent and fast to get what I need done. He was also very fair with me, and I feel that I actually took his counsel to be well worth the money. Especially since I never felt like I was being over-charged for anything. I highly recommend this man to anyone!
