        Michael has helped me tremendously.  I’ve been going through a divorce for over a year now and he’s be there every step of the way.  If I needed to contact him out of business hours, he always answers right away or calls back in a timely manner.  My divorce was and still is very stressful.  He has kept me cool and calm the whole time.  I’ve had a lot of anxiety that he took away.  Very detailed and very relaxed person.  Made me feel so much more confident than I was before I stepped into his office.

        Question:

        What situations is mediation not appropriate for divorce?

        Answer:

        Mediation is not an appropriate option in a divorce when there’s a high-conflict relationship between the parties. Sometimes, there’s a lack of trust. Maybe one party is not being honest and truthful in their full financial disclosure. Sometimes there’s a great deal of animosity and people will just refuse to cooperate with each other.

        Sometimes we have to go to court. We need the court’s assistance to help us get through some issues and problems that people aren’t able to or willing to participate in honestly through mediation. Unless both parties are willing to participate, unless both parties are open and honest about their finances, and unless both parties commit to the process, mediation might not work for you.

        “Mike will end all your distrust and annoyance associated with legal proceedings. He handled my divorce and did an amazing job keeping it out of court and getting me what I wanted. He was there to talk to the whole time and made me feel he was on my side by his comments and advice. He is now representing my girlfriend for her custody battle and he was the only lawyer we would contact to handle the case. He is truly a good person which is hard to find with people associated with the law in this country. Thank you Mike for everything you have done for me and for everything you are doing for my girlfriend.”
