In a extremely sensitive matter, Mike was very passionate regarding my case and had an overwhelming knowledge on how to proceed. The outcome couldn't have been any better and without Mike's guidance, my results would, without a doubt, been drastically different.
Not only was Mike incredibly knowledgeable of the law, he was very informative and provided several options....all which were accurate and in my best interest.
I want to personally thank Mike and I highly recommend him!

Whatever situation that leads you to browse for family law lawyer at avvo, I empathize with you. For me, it was one of the darkest period of my life. However, rest assured that you had found the best one in town. Mike and his paralegal, Samantha, genuinely care about my case and provided sound advice of what's achievable and is in my child's best interest. I am forever grateful of his service.

Michael Dewitt is genuine, patient and resourceful. I couldn't be happier with how he handled my case. I felt supported during a difficult and stressful time in my life and I am very grateful for his compassion. The outcome of my case was exactly what I was hoping for and I have Michael to thank for that.
I would hire Mr. Dewitt again in a heartbeat and have already recommended him to several of my friends. He is an excellent attorney and a wonderful person.

I endorse this lawyer. Knowledgeable about the law and sensible in his approach to resolving and litigating cases in a way to achieve best possible results at lowest possible cost, I am confident in recommending Mike to anyone seeking competent legal representation in a family law matter. It helps that he is very involved in the local bar and both known and respected by the judges and judicial officers in the counties in which he practices.
