I had to petition to have the parenting agreement I am in adjusted, unfortunately. However, I was very fortunate to have found Attorney Smith to help me with this. Michael Smith has a ton of experience and it’s obvious when you meet with him that he knows what he’s doing. He’s also very good at being straight forward and communicating information in a very easy to understand way. As much as I dislike family court and its many flaws, I walked away with a slightly better understanding of family law (which is incredibly important for parents and I wish I had a better understanding of it prior to this) thanks to Mike. Mike’s assistant Maria is also phenomenal. She’s friendly, kind, quick to respond, and competent. She was the best to work with during this stressful time.
Mike and Maria were very professional, kind, respectable and understanding of my situation. They respond quickly, and spend hours of their valuable time to help their clients. I couldn't be any more thankful for their support during a very trying time.
Mike & Maria are awesome people to work with. I knew Mike was the lawyer for me from the day I met him when he had a Greenbay Packer tie on.
