Going through divorce is not easy for anyone especially when your ex-spouse creates so many issues unnecessarily. I was totally heartbroken and shocked at the same time to see how my ex behaved. I was served with the divorce papers and was looking for attorney to respond and boy I'm so glad that I found Michelle. I called her and discussed my case with her. She was so patient and listened to me for a while and then explained me the whole process. She then came to meet me the next day and gave me some paperwork to sign (her retention agreement) and started on the case. She prepared the required documentation in no time and sent to me on email. As I travel extensively, she co-operated with me and always was there whenever I needed her advise. She is straightforward, trustworthy and very knowledgeable. She always kept me in the loop whenever she responded to my ex's attorney and always called me / texted me with the updates. She also helped me with my 401k plus split (QDRO) even though she is not an expert on that. She was always there to help whatever it was. I'm now completely done with my case and moved on in my life and I'm fully satisfied the way Michelle handled my case. Her charges are very nominal and the best in the industry. I highly recommend her and would anytime hire her again if needed. She is person you need on your side during divorce.

I called Michelle for a consult - she was immediately responsive and provided thorough and excellent advice. She even recommended a very cost-effective way to handle my case instead - at detriment to herself. I was very impressed.
