Generally using Michael Collum through my divorce was not to my advantage. Throughout the case it felt more like check the box than zealous representation. Sales pitch at the initial consult was entirely different from the real world approach. In the divorce there were several ambiguities in the decree and settlement agreement that ended up costing me. In addition, the case dragged on for some time. It was only after talking with his partner that things got moving more quickly. I attempted to have a strategy meeting at one point, only to have a form decree read to me. I ended up with a very standard divorce decree for a premium price. His fees were 4x the fixed fee quotes I received, but I went with Michael Collum expecting premium service. In the end, he pushed me off as a referral to another lawyer to clean up some of the mess and this guys name is David Handel. He actually fell through with that also, and stopped returning calls. There was a procedural issue that could have been solved simply, but he missed it, and cost me some money. It wasn't an easy case, but his advice was not particularly good. Essentially he told me to follow all the rules, while my ex did whatever she wanted. Then coward Michael was afraid to enforce my rights for fear of upsetting the judge. This turned out to be a huge problem for me. Granted he and his paralegal did get the correct forms in on time. More than once I got an email at 3:30 requesting a notarized copy of something by 4:30 the same day. All in all, would not recommend.
