I called around before I went to Mike Schiffman for my divorce. I wanted a fair custody arrangement for our kids, and the issue of maintenance payments needed to be reasonable. The kids were still young so it would be years of family issues to consider. From the start Mike was so easy for me to talk to about what I thought I deserved. He really knows the Illinois laws and the judicial system. Once we began negotiations and entering orders, he nailed down every issue. He’s been doing this for over 30 years, and seemed to know everyone at court and was well-respected by all. Mike worked to get a settlement and save the costs of having to go to trial. When the other side wouldn’t agree, he did a phenomenal job representing me in court, too. What I liked best about him was that he was there for me, not like one of those big firm lawyers that’s all about billable hours and then passing clients off to first year associates. He really cared about me and my kids. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering divorce or having any related issues. I’ve needed help since the divorce on some other family stuff and Mike has helped me with other legal matters too. He’s super smart and a great guy to have on your side.

I endorse this lawyer. Michael Scott Schiffman is highly skilled in divorce and separation law matters. If there was a case that I needed to refer out, I would refer it to him. He cares for the law and for his clients.
