Michelle and her staff were an invaluable resource in the completion of my divorce. A matter that I was advised would be "simple" by my previous attorney when I completed legal separation a few years ago was not simple at all.
Through the diligence and hard work of Michelle and her staff, my divorce was finalized with minimal disruption to my life. They definitely did all of the hard work in what truly was a much more complicated situation than either Michelle or I were anticipating.
Whether you are facing a family law situation that is simple, complicated, or somewhere in between, I highly recommend Michelle and her amazing team.

I think she is capable lawyer but she doesn't have time for you. May be my case was not big enough for her. She had over 70 clients/case and she just didn't have time to spend on my case. I had to create document and brief her before every hearing so that she remembers what my case was all about and I had to tell her what is our strategy is and what we need to focus on and what we need to say. While I was paying her by the hour. I almost should have represented myself. I think I lost child custody due to lack of her focus. She was slow and therefore we never had initiative.

At a time when so many things were happening in my life, Ms. Sullivan and her staff made things much easier to understand and deal with. I always felt that they were putting my needs first when I was unable to do so and yet they listened to me and my opinions. They made a difficult process much more bearable.
