Mr. Lew, a very smart lawyer, I felt like I was safe, he had my best interests at hand, he is a good, good man that is extremely respected by his peers, especially at the Daley Center. A no nonsense, helpful, compassionate person. My case was extremely difficult and honestly feel any other attorney could easily have been intimidated by my ex, but Lew wouldn't have it. In fact only because of Mr. Lew's personality was he able to pursue my case with the vigilance he did. I always said, Mr. Lew treats my case like a $100,000.00 case that's paid up to date. I recommend this attorney for a divorce, he will do the right thing, he is on time with his filings, he doesn't need to make excuses and his staff is second to none as well.

I read one of the other reviews that said this guy was lazy. I'm convinced it was written by someone on the other side, possibly my ex wife. This former Marine is a workhorse and a consummate professional. You want a lawyer who will go to the mattresses? Hire Mike. You will not be disappointed.

This was my second (and final) lawyer. My first lawyer was a nice enough guy but did not know how to play hard ball.
1. Got supervised visitation when my kids were with my ex so I knew they were safe (ex has a drug addiction)
2. Made sure I got full custody (I previously had joint custody)
3. Made sure I received the proper amount of child support
Let me elaborate: my ex tried to screw me every way possible. I knew he hid income and then he argued for a reduction in support. Mr. Lew figured out how my ex was concealing income and got a court order that forced my ex to provide documentation to the court and show cause for not paying in full. The judge agreed with MY lawyer. The ex ended up owing me money and when he was too slow to comply Mr. Lew filed a motion and my ex was then held in contempt. He did not let my ex get away with anything! I can't express in words how much he did to help my children. I can just tell you that I watched Mr. Lew truly fight for their best interests. He's a pit bull and I mean that in the best possible way.
