The quick and the led.
If you have no knowledge of the law Michael will swiftly lead you to a Final Order. He doesn't try to leap mountians but he does ask your opinion and gets your full approval before he will speak on your behalf. He doesn't like to play around with what ifs in the slightest and knows what he and you can and cannot control in both the eyes of the court and reality.
In my years involved with these courts I have seen him as the go getter, as well as compasionate for the broken. He is both ruthless when necessary and patient with regard to the hurry up and wait game. He is well versed in family law and would be my choice in an attorney. Just keep him in the room long enough to relay the entire list of relivent facts before going to court.
