Efficient, Knowledgable, and a True Professional
Michael is not only a great attorney but he is like a friend who is looking out for the best interest in his clients. He was recommended by a friend and I am very satisfied with his work. He is great with communication and I never had to wait more than a few hours for a response. He is knowledgeable and explained every detail within my case. Thank you Michael!

The "Most Real" person and attorney you can find
I am not very sure where to begin. First of all, THANK YOU MICHAEL!! You are an incredible human! I am so happy that 5 years ago I found you on the internet and called. Michael Lodermeier is a very unique attorney. I have dealt with a few in my life and I have never met anyone like Michael. Michael is the most real most genuine and honest attorney I have " EVER MET " he tells you how it is. The most refreshing thing about him is his knowledge but not just the one he acquired in law school , but that wisdom that he was born with. His intuition is on point at all times, he is always there for you when you need him ( AND PEOPLE LETS GET REAL - this industry is one of the most demanding industries out there and DONT FORGET your case is not the only case he has ) There is also another word I can use for Michael that is probably not used often in the same sentence that the word " ATTORNEY" is used in and that word is "COMPASSION" Michael Lodermeier is not only here to make money, he actually is there to guide you and help you. Finally ! His presence in the courtroom is like the most gracious LION - the class and grace he carries himself with is truly something that makes any person represented by him feel safe. Not very many people can argue with Mr. Lodermeier, his extensive knowledge of the LAW and of course common sense aids him to come out on top of any meeting with any judge. Also , Mike's staff ( KATIE ) is absolutely amazing. You do not have to see her to feel her good heart. THANK YOU KATIE for always being there for us with a smile on your face ! I HIGHLY RECOMMED Michael Lodermeier!!

Excellent family lawyer
I used Michael for my divorce. He came recommended to me by an attorney friend. I was very pleased with Michael's legal advice and follow-thru. He was pragmatic and professional in his work - not combative with my ex-wife. I would use him again if I ever need a family lawyer again.

Mr. Lodermeier was honest and helpful. He listened and wanted to make sure I was making a rash decision based on hurt feelings.

Michael Lodermeier Divorce Attorney
I hired Michael as my attorney for my divorce. Michael is prompt, intelligent, kind, and takes time to guide you through the entire process. His experience coupled with his compassion is exactly what you want when navigating such a confusing and emotional situation. I highly recommend him!

A Trustworthy Advocate
Michael was an excellent attorney and created the best case scenario for my daughter and I. Michael communicated extremely well during the entire process by phone & email. He was always clear on the goals and options that we had in front of us and I trusted his advice due to his open communication. If you are battling over custody or visitation, I can't emphasize enough that Michael will advocate for what is best for your children. He secured a GAL for my daughter and together they worked extremely hard to keep her safe. I have since referred several friends to him. Nobody wants to go through a divorce, but if you do, you want to have a trustworthy advocate on your side.

Speedy divorce
He was very helpful in getting divorce finalize in 7 months after I met him. Was able to help me get what is financially fair for me and the children. I recommended him to a friend who is going through a divorce but not happy with her lawyer. Michael helped me stand my ground when my ex was pressuring me to give him more of my retirement money.

Professional and knowledgable
Michael was extremely professional and helpful during my divorce. He made me feel confident with the proceedings and always kept me up to date during the process. Whenever I needed to contact him with a question or concern he was almost always available or would contact me back within a short amount of time.

Honesty is the best policy
Michael was very honest throughout the process including expectations, possible outcomes, options, costs, etc. He always responded quickly to emails and phone calls. Very approachable and explained things in laymen's terms.

Trustworthy
Michael did a great job of being open and honest with how to proceed with a divorce. I did not feel rushed or pressured and he was very patient. Michael was clear on costs related to divorce and made sure I was (and continues to make sure that I am ) treated fairly. I have friends going through divorces and child custody hearings that are in thousands of dollars of debt and I'm so thankful to have had a lawyer that was accurate and to the point.

A legal partner, not just a "lawyer"
Michael represented me in two specific cases regarding custody of my boys. The first case resulted in my winning custody from my ex wife, who later tried to file an emergency motion to regain custody and failed (the second case). I never felt like Michael was a "lawyer" when we talked. He was a consultant, a partner, explained his strategy every step of the way so we were on the same page. And he never forced his opinion on me. He laid out several ideas and spoke in detail of the advantages/ disadvantages of each approach. In the courtroom, he was strong and confident, without being egotistical. Michael was always made himself available to me. I knew he had a heavy case load in both instances, but I felt as though I was his *only* client and this was the *only* case he was working.

Highly Recommended
I found Mike by 2 friends who had nothing but good things to say about him. You can add me to that list. He made the divorce process extremely manageable. Whenever I was feeling stressed he calmed me down. In court he was in full control and always well prepared. I would recommend him to anyone faced with a divorce.

Great Attorney
Mr. Lodermeier is very professional. He did a Quadro and closing for me. He has done a lot of work for my friends and family. He made every effort to make sure my case was handled properly.

Post-divorce Guidance
Michael was extremely helpful regarding a child support issue that I encountered a few years after my divorce was finalized. His advice allowed both sides to reach a settlement that helped to avoid a potentially lengthy litigation. For matters related to divorce, I would highly recommend Michael.
