Highest Recommendation
Michelle was a guiding light during one of the hardest times in my life. Having married my High School sweetheart and having 17yrs of marriage I never thought I’d be needing her services. She prayed with me before our mediation for reconciliation if possible, as I would have given anything to keep my marriage together via my wedding vows and for my children, despite all that had transpired. When it became obvious that was not going to be our course, she had us well prepared to navigate through the process. She was knowledgeable, honest, and efficient. She explained everything in detail until I felt truly comfortable – and I had an amazing amount of questions. She was clear on all the various possibilities and outcomes to expect and directions we should take. She let me lead on the way I wanted to approach our negotiations. I wanted my ex and I to be able to walk away a united team for our children. This isn’t to say there weren’t some really tough and emotional moments, but we made it through, and I always felt I had the best teammate in my corner. I can truly say that now our friends look at my ex and I as an example for the ideal relationship following a divorce. Michelle was prepared for anything and everything that was thrown in our direction and handled it with amazing expertise. It is with extreme confidence that she has my highest recommendation.

Thankful for hiring Michelle
Echoing what many others have already stated, Michelle was professional, knowledgeable, and methodical in handling my divorce case. One thing that really stood out to me when reflecting back at the whole process was how Michelle made me feel. During an unbelievably personal and stressful time, she was someone that I could count on to have my best interests in mind. Michelle not only represented me as my attorney but also was a calming presence during an uncertain chapter of my life.

I highly recommend Michelle Purvis
I found myself to be in an unbearable situation. Living out of state made it difficult. Michelle was referred to me by a local attorney and I found her to be a good listener. She was caring, professional and responsive. I am very grateful for her help and expertise.

Why I recommend Ms. Purvis
First of all Ms. Purvis was not my attorney. In fact she was representing my ex spouse. I find myself writing this positive review because I have such a deep appreciation for professional tenacity. Even when I lose. Ms. Purvis consistently displayed a prepared readiness at each and every court appearance. She holds nothing back in her fight. As I’m well aware of. But what’s more is her personal dedication to her client. Our case went on for some time, but I can honestly admit she methodically dismantled my attorneys. And I had very reputable attorneys in Fort Worth. I wish I could go back and hire her. 11/20

Exceptional results and strong work ethic!
Michelle Purvis is an amazing divorce attorney! She possesses superior knowledge of business and financial issues in divorce and protected my business and all that I worked so hard to build. Michelle fought hard to protect my business and my assets throughout the divorce process and kept me fully-informed. Michelle was easy to communicate with and always provided clear explanations and advice. Michelle Purvis exceeded my expectations in a divorce lawyer.

Impeccable Negotiator with Top-Notch Professionalism
From our first meeting, Michelle was professional, compassionate, and most of all, encouraging and confident. Securing wise counsel was of paramount importance to us, and she certainly delivered. In a difficult and unexpected circumstance, she created the best scenario through her expert negotiation skills and knowledge of the law. She returned every phone call and email promptly. Michelle is tireless in her pursuit of justice, and passionate for those most vulnerable. Cannot recommend her highly enough.

Michelle was positive during my complicated divorce. Through the entire process, she was straightforward in a compassionate way, well prepared, and went over and beyond for me. Thanks to her efforts, my settlement succeeded my expectations. I highly recommend Michelle!

Best decision I've made!
In a very difficult case, that had a lot of factors, had been drug out for years, had two previous lawyers screw us over, and genuinely losing hope. I found Michelle! She and her team dissected the case and aggressively attacked it from all sides. Previous wrongs were righted and a case that had been drug out for years now finally closed. My daughter and I are so thankful! Michelle is the best!

I will never use any other attorney again! After spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on legal counsel with two other attorneys who completely wrecked my custody case, gave away my personal property, and forced me to agree to settle out of court with no child support because “the judge was crooked and would give my ex everything anyway,” Michelle Purvis went to work cleaning up their sizable mess! She “righted every wrong” where custody was concerned. My only regret is that I didn’t go to her 6 years ago! Michelle is incredibly intelligent, trustworthy, and a Christian! She didn’t make any false promises. She was very realistic and straightforward when explaining my options for my case and what all the possible outcomes were. It was an extremely complicated case (what happens when you are divorced by a divorce attorney who plans it for over a year and you start out with inept attorneys)! Michelle put in the time to research my case and was able to eliminate my ex-husband’s “star witness” and have her dismissed as a matter of law! She was knowledgeable and professional at every turn. She was calm and compassionate, but still aggressive enough to demand that the law be followed and in an expedient manner. She worked incredibly hard and put in the time required for an extremely successful outcome! She was upfront about her rates and her billing and made sure I knew how and where my retainer money was being spent. She wasn’t cheap, but she was accurate, effective, timely, and fair (you get what you pay for). She is a truly hero in my eyes and I will be forever grateful! Every night when I tuck my little girl into bed, I thank God for Michelle Purvis!

Michell is one of the most intelligent people I have ever been in contact with. She is a very hard working person and cares so much about her clients. Her knowledge of the law shows how much she has vested in her profession.
