"Mike was a very professional and attentive attorney in every aspect of my divorce. No matter how complicated the situation was or how bad the other side got, he always kept his professionalism and cool demeanor. He was even professional enough to keep me in the right frame of mind and on the path that not only helped me get what I wanted out of my divorce but also act in a manner that I could look my self in the mirror and be proud of my actions. Thank you again Mike you are and amazing human and attorney. please never loose that."
Christopher - Portland


"Mike was all I could have hoped for in a lawyer, and even a friend, through such a difficult time in my life. He looked out not only for my best interests, but that of my son as well. In fact, their policy is that the kids come first, and it was clearly his top priority. Exactly what I was looking for without knowing just how important it would be. As a father himself he had a direct insight to what it meant to be a parent, which was invaluable. "
