Posted by Samantha
Michael is my family's attorney and was extremely helpful with my divorce. He was always on top of things and continued to make me feel comfortable through the entire process. He continuously assured me that things were moving along the way they should be. At times I would ask the same questions repeatedly and Michael was great about answering them with no judgement. Even when I thought we were done, after the divorce was final, he continued to follow up with me to make sure my ex was following through. Michael is a great lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone in need.

Micheal did an outstanding job representing me throughout my case. I was always informed and he was always prepared.

To call this man a lawyer is absurd. Impudent, ineffective and worthless are main adjectives that come to mind as I remember the court case which will eventually cost me well over $200,000 not including his fee if I don't pay to redo the whole thing with someone who is competent. A process that I've been told will cost me twice as much as I had to pay Michael plus the stress of dealing with my ex wife for another year when all I want is for the whole thing to be over with. It's difficult to describe the shear feeling of helplessness I felt while I watched my future and the well being of my children be washed down the drain because I chose to hire this man to represent me in a system I don't have much knowledge about. He was totally unprepared and made no effort at all to evaluate my income so the judge could do his job. He literally took my ex wife's guesstimate at my income rather than basing it on my actual earnings because Michael showed up with nothing to offer on my behalf. The reality is that he took my money and walked into court carrying hundreds of files and bank statements I had worked hours to prepare myself and never used one single peace of evidence to defend me. He presented nothing and had no defense against my wife's competent lawyer. It's not the thousands that I paid him that bothers me but the fact that now I have to go through the entire divorce process again with a real lawyer except now I have my first failed case to overcome.

Mr. O'Brien handled my divorce and custody case with the utmost precision and care. He kept me updated frequently and fielded all of my questions and concerns in a very patient and understanding manner. I would (and undoubtedly will) highly recommend that anyone faced with a divorce and/or child custody case retain Mr O'Brien.

I was dealing with a long drawn out custody case and was back in court attempting to get full custody of my children. My original attorney quit her practice 3 months before our final hearing and frankly, I was quite worried. I did some research in regard to family lawyers and met with Mr. O'Brien. He was direct and to the point and I was confident he would be a strong advocate for my case and my children. I was not disappointed. Michael was able to present the case, prepared me for testimony and answered my questions. In the courtroom he was prepared, pointed and methodical. In great part because of Mr. Obrien, the courts did award me full custody, and I will go back to Michael again in the future if I have a need for further legal representation.

Mr. O'Brien was very thorough and well organized in compiling pertinent information and filing necessary court-ordered documents. He explained the process to me and efficiently prepared me for court appearances. Because of Mr. O'Brien's expertise, I received a fair settlement.

Mr. O'Brien far exceeded the expectations I have for an attorney. I came out much better than most due to Mr. Obrien's professionalism, knowledge and integrity. He made it a point not to waste time or money and was very clear and concise. If you want an honest, fair and established local attorney that cuts out the irrelevant he-said she said and gets right to business with the facts, Mr. Obrien is the way to go!

Mr O'Brien was very wonderful to work with. He repsonded to my concerns and question very promptly. My case was interesting in that I lived out state and Mr O'Brien was able to work with the DA to limit my travel and also pleed the best outcome for me. I would highly recommend him.

My ex husband was self employed and we had to prove his income. Michael did his best to achieve the best results for my case.

I was luck to find Michael after I decided to appeal a decision made by the courts. Appeal lawyers are hard to find and he did an incredible job. Almost every verdict was overturned or sent back to the court to reevaluate.... I won't name the judge but hope u never get him. I liked him so much I went back for another court case involving my daughter and again I was very impressed. He would return my phone calls almost immediately and if not involved in other issues I would be connected immediately. He was extremely knowledgeable or the laws and court systems and was straight shooter about everything. If you need a lawyer I would highly recommend.
