He’s the BEST
I appreciate Mike so much, for all the work he did for me and my family. He’s definitely a great and caring attorney. Him and his staff take care of business! They always listened to me when I had questions or concerns, and responded very quickly. I will always be thankful for him and his staff.

I recently completed my divorce with the great assistance of Mike Sharpee and his paralegal, Cortney. They were both so great to speak with when I had questions or did not understand the legal ease. Even during the world pandemic, Mike and Cortney were always available and willing to help me. I highly and greatly recommend Mike Sharpee for your representative. This office is well versed in Railroad related information as it is so important to have this so your retirement and rights are protected. Thank you both for your great assistance and kindness during this stressful period. You both eased my stress and make an awesome team!

Won an Appeal case
Mike sharpee did an awesome job winning am appeal case that was against me. When i meet him he was very clear about what he was going to be able to do for me. Throughout the entire process he always made sure to keep in contact me he always emailed me when different steps of the case was going on. I am very satisfied with the job and he did and I'm very happy that we won this case. I would definitely recommend him if you are in the Amarillo area.

I had the privilage of watching Mr. Sharpee in court. Don't take his quite manner to heart because when it counted he was very good and fought for my friends. I recommend him highly and I know my friends are very grateful to him.

Great advice
I called the office needing a lawyer & over the phone he told me I really needed an out--of-state lawyer to handle my issue, & if they wouldn't help me-- then call the Sharpee firm & talk to them. This 1 call saved me time, money, & helped me understand how to resolve an in-law issue. My sincere appreciation.

Divorce/Lawsuit Settlement Assistance
I have never written any review about an Attorney for reasons I will not list. The reason for writing this review is simple, Mike Sharpee is the best Family/Lawsuit Attorney I have ever met. This was not my first divorce so I have had dealings with other Civil Attorney's with negative results. Being in Law Enforcement for 25-years I have dealt with several Criminal and Civil Attorney's which does not make me an expect on Attorney's who practice Family Law and other fields but has provided me with experience concerning the ability of Attorney's the average person has not had to deal with. Mike is the best Civil Attorney I have ever known or hired. He represents his clients with honesty, integrity and puts there best interest first. My divorce was fairly complex in the fact my ex-wife has a son who is also an Attorney. So that brought up several situations which could have caused me a lot of grief. Where Mike stands out is his ability to deal with the opposing Attorney in a way that is fair and most importantly in the best interest if his client. As anyone who has gone through a divorce emotions can get in the way at times and cause some of us to make wrong decisions. This is where Mike really shines, he knows how to help his clients make the best decision taking out the emotion. I will make this part simple, listen to what Mike advises you to do period. To wrap up besides the divorce I was in the later stages of a Lawsuit that I won by a Jury Trial which also involved my ex-wife. I asked Mike if he could help me with this. He went out of town and guided me through a mediation process and finally helped with the finalization of the Lawsuit. Mike was asked to join the other Law Firm but he said to them; "I am here to represent my client". Which means that he could have probably made a lot more money but did not. In closing Mike's fees are more than fair, you will be more than pleased with his fees. I encourage anyone needing a Family Law Attorney to hire Mike period.

Hands down the best family attorney in Amarillo
Mike is straight forward and honest. Mike assisted me through one of the most dificult times in my life. I would recommend him for any family/divorce matters. Not the cheapest or the most expensive; but surely the BEST!!

Waste of Money
I hired Mr. Sharpee for a child custody case and spoke over the phone several times, met once in person in the hall of the courthouse before entering the court room. I had specific requests he assured me would be taken care of and once we were in court and was shown the documents signed by both sides it did not have the requests I had made and he assured me would happen. Once the case was over I did not have a good feeling about the way the case was handled, and felt Mr. Sharpee was not on my side at all and actually helping the other side prevail. Mr. Sharpee wasted my valuable time and money; I would not recommend him for a child custody case.
