Michelle Raiford was my lawyer during the most intense, emotional time of my life. I was battling my ex for custody of our son. It was a very long, drawn out case. My ex was very spiteful, deceitful and played many petty games that caused emotional damage and anxiety for not just my son and I, but both the families involved. Michelle was compassionate, understanding and sensitive to all of our needs during this time, not just emotionally but financially as well. Michelle understood that my family and I were on a tight budget. She made sure that we spent the money we had in the areas where we absolutely needed her, in order to ensure we could continue to employ her throughout the entire ordeal (most importantly through the trial). I not only felt like I was protected by having a competent and dedicated lawyer by my side, but at times it felt as if I had a friend by my side as well. Michelle was very good at staying one step ahead of my ex. Always anticipating his next move or the options available to him as far as replies, responses, appeals, etc.. Her knowledge and experience of the law and the court system, including the judges and commissioners, gave me a strong sense of security and comfort that was absolutely priceless. There is nothing more important in this world than your child and when someone threatens to take that from you, especially to expose them to an unfit lifestyle there is very little that can comfort you in this moment. Michelle did just that, as well as won me full custody of my boy along with child support, back child support and even some court fees. For the better part of ten years my ex answered to know one, came and went when he wanted and did not provide any sort of help, support or parenting for his son in any way and then had the audacity to kidnap our son in my lowest and weakest moment. Words cannot express how grateful and happy I am to have my boy back and the security of knowing his father can no longer attack or threaten our lives anymore and this is all owed to Michelle Raiford.

This wonderful attorney, Michelle Raiford, saved my life when she prevented an unlawful eviction. I physically and emotionally would not have survived the eviction. She put in a lot of hours and skill because my case was not an easy one. Her follow-through was over and beyond my expectations. She succeeded in making sure that the Everett Housing Authority not only dismissed the eviction procedure, she also had them relocate me to a much better unit. This young woman is my heroine in a time when justice is rare for any low-income person. Ms Raiford has inspired me to return to school. I am enrolled in the Criminal Justice Class at ITT-Everett, She will go far in her career, her practice is what law is meant to be!
