High quality lawyer gets results
I hired Michael to help me resolve an ongoing fight to receive child support and reimbursement for expenses that my ex simply refuses to pay. Prior to engaging with Michael, I spoke to other family law attorneys who seemed uninterested in taking my case. It made me feel that my case was hopeless. Then I spoke to Michael and he took the time to listen to what I’ve been through and how I was not being paid anything. Michael asked me some really good questions that other attorneys failed to do. He understood the problem and offered to help me. He then worked with another attorney in his office (Holly Price) who is an expert in child support and they were not only able to get current support paid but also arrearages and attorney fees. Thank you Michael and SVLO Team. You guys are truly the best!!!

Very Skilled Negotiator
Michael represented me in a heated dispute involving accusations that were not true and a claim for money that was simply unjustified. It took several rounds of negotiation. However, in the end I was very pleased because we settled for a fractional amount of what was originally requested. Michael was very skilled in how he communicated with the other attorney and in working out a favorable outcome. Thank you Michael.

Truly a good guy and awesome lawyer!!
I found Michael on Yelp and was skeptical about using ANY lawyer for my contract issues. I was very pleasantly surprised to meet Michael and find a fair, reasonable, attorney who not only knew what he was doing and gave me great business/legal advice but did not charge me out the nose. His rates were fair and after reviewing my contracts he was able to not only fix the problems I had but also give me great advice on areas that could potentially be pitfalls in the future. He helped me re write a contract that was ready to go and protected my interest in every way. Michael was patient and took the time to explain things to me carefully. Not only that but he was willing to see me after hours when no one else would even consider seen game after 5. Not only will I use Michael for my business again, but he suggested I do a will and trust to protect my assets. Again, he is willing to work on this with me in off hours to accommodate my schedule. Michael is truly one of the 'good guys' and a gem of a find in the legal department!!!

Trusted attorney
I met with Michael to help me with a premarital agreement. It was a particularly sensitive subject with my fiance and I, and we were both really appreciative of how Michael handled it and spoke with both of us. He listened to what we wanted and did a great job in putting it together. Michael is not just competent, but empathetic and someone I would not hesitate to recommend. We will probably use him to do a Will and Trust for us later.
