I have known and worked with Michelle Sommer for a long time and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. She understands the laws inside and out and works with her clients to figure out the best course of action to take. Divorces and child custody arrangements are not always pretty, but by following Michelle's advice and guidance, positive outcomes are definitely possible. She is a straight shooter that will lay everything out for you and that can be very comforting when facing difficult situations that you might not fully understand.
I contacted Michelle to settle my ongoing divorce and take over from another attorney. Michelle is extremely professional and personable to work with during the process. She made sure I was always aware of my legal rights regarding my case and advised me of my options in a clear and concise way. Ultimately Michelle was able to settle my divorce and child support matters fairly and quickly. I highly recommend Michelle to anyone who needs legal help in divorce, separation or custody issues.
I worked with Brandon on a custody case that had not had resolution in years, with several different lawyers and firms involved. Brandon had the knowledge of the law and ideas to get my case to resolution. He was willing to listen to my ideas, and give me his honest feedback on what would be best, even when I didn't want to hear it. He is excellent and I would recommend him to anyone with easy or difficult custody circumstances to resolve. We never did have to go to court but I assume he would have been the shark I was looking for if we had. Excellent lawyer, excellent firm!
