Ethical, knowledgeable, professional
I engaged Mr. Raysor for my custody case, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience. His straightforward and honest approach provided clarity about the case trajectory. In the courtroom, his respectful and amicable demeanor with other attorneys seemed to resonate positively with the judge. Post-hearing, Mr. Raysor took the time to debrief, showing genuine concern for my emotional well-being. What truly sets him apart is his genuine care for the best interests of the children involved. His dedication to ensuring their welfare, combined with impeccable ethics and professional boundaries, truly stood out. The paralegal and office assistant are equally friendly and polite. I highly recommend Mr. Raysor for his respectful advocacy, profound legal knowledge, and unwavering dedication to his clients’ needs.

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Raysor and his team are all Fantastic! I have been working with them for 3 years and am so grateful for all their expertise and help with everything from my divorce to child custody! I unfortunately have a case that nothing is easy and everything is a fight and they have had my sons best interest at heart the whole time while being honest professional and upfront regarding all possible outcomes and managing expectations.

Excellent
I would highly recommend Mr Raysor to anyone looking for a divorce lawyer. I interviewed various attorneys in town and Michael was the most straightforward and knowledgeable without being condescending. His rates are very reasonable and his quality of work was excellent. His paralegal, Laura, is also very professional and easy to work with.

Kind and helpful
I hired Mr. Raysor to help me with a case involving renewing a restraining order and getting a custody/visitation order in place for my children. It didn't involve a lot of legal fight, but there was a lot of negotiating and settlements. Unlike the lawyer who did my divorce many years ago, I felt that Raysor listened to me with sympathy, gave realistic opinions and advice, and was patient and helpful. He was also reliable in communicating with me and getting back to me on things. I feel bad for inflicting my crazy ex on him, but Raysor was great and if I ever need a family lawyer again I will definitely be back.

Above and Beyond
I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. Mr. Raysor has gone above and beyond anything that I expected. My case was far from simple or ordinary. Mr. Raysor has been very hands on in in the case. Even personally serving paperwork to my ex. He has been very realistic and honest in what my expectations and outcomes in the case should be. He has never failed to answer my questions or return an email. Living out of state, as well as my extremely complex case made it very difficult for me to choose a lawyer. I had spoken with several lawyers before speaking with Mr. Raysor. The majority of the other lawyers I spoke with would barely let me explain my situation before telling me I had zero hope. Mr. Raysor was the only one who not only took the time to listen to and talk with me, but also took time to look over what I had to start my case before I put a retainer down. From the very first phone call Mr. Raysor was supportive and sympathetic to my situation where other lawyers wouldn't give me the time of day. I am very pleased with the work he has done. If you're looking to hire someone who puts their clients first and cares about the work they are doing, then definitely consider hiring Michael Raysor.

Family Matters! Top Rate Support
I cannot express enough gratitude for the professionalism Mr Raysor & his Staff gave to me during my difficult custody dispute. He took a personal interest in what was going on, and stayed on top of the case, even when I had an emergency Health issue. Mr Raysor was there during court dates prepared, aggressive, while confident, Kept me informed and often took late or early calls with concerns for my son. I highly recommend Michael Raysor for legal representation. I was pleased with his knowledge about family law and suggestions. Im very happy with the outcome.

Outstanding Results
My divorce albeit "simple" was overly complicated with many "snags" by my ex-wife. Michael went above and beyond in every circumstance and made the miserable task of a divorce gain clarity by explaining the process and provided rapid results both in and out of court. He saved me thousands in support by filtering through all the smoke that opposing council was attempting to create. In short, should I ever need an attorney again, I 100% trust Michael to represent me with absolute confidence that he has my best interests in mind.

You can't go wrong with Michael Raysor
I hired Michael to handle my divorce. He has been very professional and knowledgeable, and is easy to get along with. All of his advice has been spot on. I feel very comfortable in trusting him with my case and know that I made the right choice in hiring him. He makes me feel like my case is of the utmost importance to him and I don't feel like I am just another client. If I were to ever need a lawyer again in the future, I wouldn't even shop around, I would just call Michael again.

You would be foolish not to hire Michael Raysor !!
I'll keep this short and sweet. As with anyone, hiring a lawyer can be stressful. I did my research for the most qualified lawyer to represent me in my divorce. When dealing with the courts, there is no room for error or second best, especially when a child is involved. With Michael Raysor, I hit the nail on the head! He went above and beyond what I was expecting, and in the end I ended up with the custody I wanted, as well as the child support set at a reasonable rate. I couldn't ask for anything more. I've been in your situation, if you're reading this, and you're looking for the BEST, hire Michael.

Quality Lawyer
Finding a quality lawyer can be difficult as I have witnessed with friends and family. However with Michael Raysor you do not have to worry. I hired him to tackle my divorce and custody case. He was wonderful to work with. When I was stressed about the custody situation he was always very diligent in contacting me quickly to discuss my concerns. He is on top of keeping your case moving forward. You never have to worry about procrastination. He is understanding and listens well to your concerns, while also providing honest feedback and guidance, so that a gameplan can be made together. He genuinely cares for the best outcome for his clients. He tried his best to resolve my situation outside of court to keep the situation as low stress for my daughter and I, and to try and save me from a costly custody battle. He is a genuine guy and wonderful lawyer that I highly recommend.
