Do not use this lawyer.
Makes you sign papers lawyers are not supposed to have a client sign.
Very irresponsible advice.
Not in the best interest of client in the best interest of herself.
Made all kinds of promises that weren't kept.
Very regretful of using this lawyer.
Don't be fooled.

In a nutshell, Michele is excellent! It's hard to imagine how we would have managed our case without her outstanding expertise. She is extremely hard working, tremendously responsive to our needs, and in all ways a top-knotch professional. We feel forever indebted to her for giving us support and handling our work with incredible expertise while fully and efficiently attending to our legal needs.
Thank you, Michele.
