I hired Mr. Busby in July of 2015 for my divorce. He was my third lawyer for this divorce case and I already went through mediation with another counselor; my ex-wife’s attorney were playing games. Only when I hired Mike, I begin to fill comfortable in such uneasy times for me, he listened to my concerns and gave the best advice. Unfortunately another party drag this case which was mostly around property rights to the court. Well, with Mr. Busby on my side, Judge ruled SUBSTANTIALY HIGHER SETTLEMENT, than was in my offer before case went to the court. I also would like to note his reasonably negotiable attorney fees. I am definitely glad to have use Mr. Busby and I will absolutely recommend him, my only regret that I did not hire him as my first attorney.

"I am a grandparent and hired Mr. Busby to keep my grandson from being removed to Florida. He had been living with me for 6 years and then the mother came back into his life. I want to make sure she never came back and attempted to do this again. I really felt that she had abandoned her son, and that she was totally selfish in attempting to move him from Houston, where all his friends and family are located. Mike did a good job, he was tough and mean to her and her attorney. My grandson continues to live with me and she pays me child support!”

He provided a below par service. Never in touch with me, no communication at all. When finally all was over he was not even able to provide me with real final court papers, but "Unofficial" court documents. (At $3.00 per page I see its a big expenditure, Wow!). I expected at least that (And would have paid for it gladly instead of making another trip to the court, when he goes there quite often). He is good answering questions on AVVO, but beware. I hope he improves, but regrettably my experience was very discouraging.

I was in a relationship with a possessive man for about 7 years. He was very conservative and old fashioned. We started dating in our early twenties. As the relationship started to sour, he forced me out of our residence and kept all of my belongings, because he was not getting his way. In the end, I got most of my belongings back, undamaged and I got my freedom. Mike stated that most of us (men) are possessive and selfish and do not see it, until we turn 40. He admitted most women are smarter than men, but put in a disclaimer that men adjust as they age, and become much more considerate of those close to them. Divorce is not a good thing, but neither is being in a relationship where the couple does not communicate as a team anymore. Mike broke the relationship down to 1. Finances, 2. Romance 3. Parenting 4. Physical relationship (sex) and 5. Chores and Duties, fortunately I had no children with my ex. The divorce took over 1 year, as a result of the games my ex played in the courts. In the end, it was bitter sweet, winning some hearings and loosing others. Mike knows the system, and is not a miracle man, but he is prepared and ready to present your case, in the best light.

Hi, my name is Rora Smith I was getting the run around at different attorney's office's in order to get a divorce without having to pay out a lot of money because we both didn't have a lot to fight for. Busby & associates was reasonable and the staff was very nice and courteous. Michael Busby worked with me on getting my divorce along with payments arrangements he was very understanding that I had little money to work with busby & associates would be the best way to go for a divorce. Worked hard on my case and guided me with the right advice.

I hired Mr. Busby in February of 2014 for my divorce. From the first day of meeting with Mr. Busby he was professional and informative. He took time to explain the details of my divorce and what to expect. As most people know, legal wording can be very difficult to understand, however Mr. Busby took time to answer all of my many questions. Prior, to my first court appearance Mr. Busby debriefed with me and allowed me to even watch a video that his office provides, so I would know what to expect. My ex-wife's lawyer was very unorganized and unprepared, however Mr. Busby remained calm. Michael Busby is very thorough and pointed out mistakes made by my ex wife's lawyer on several occasions. The process of my divorce was drawn out, because of the lack organization on the opposing side, however Mr. Busby and his staff went the extra mile in always keeping me informed about court dates and other information. Mr. Busby always had encouraging words and supported me when I felt stressed about the divorce. It is not common for men to win in messy custody battles, however with the help of Mike Busby, I was able to win primary guardianship over my son. Hiring Michael Busby was the best decision I could have made. Throughout my divorce Mr. Busby and his staff treated me just like family. I greatly appreciate him and his staff!

His office filed my case under the wrong name. I called the district clerk's office to verify if my case was filed and the clerk's office couldn't find it, because it was filed under the wrong name. When I questioned Bugsby about it, and told him I would seek another legal counsel because I wasn't satisfied with his services, he refused to have the documents amended and said he was done with my case.

Mike took over my case after my previous lawyer proved to be incompetent. This was a very complicated case involving custody modification, arrearages and bankruptcy, and Mike handled it efficiently and honestly. He knows how to "play ball" with other lawyers and get things done. I would highly recommend Mike and his legal team.

Fast and Reliable Service. I wanted a no contest divorce and they got me divorced in 67 days. They also gave me referrals for relationship counseling. I took Mr. Ferguson's class with my wife, which I think allowed us to divorce as friends.

I dealt with Mike and Julie for my child custody case. I have two daughters. They had a plan for which sounded pretty good. Seems like they had done this lots of times. My wife lawyered up after 30 days. It was a painful and expensive experience, in the end, I was thankful for the time and service they gave me, but I hope I never get divorced again.
