"Michele is the voice of calm and experience. She has guided me through a number of thorny legal issues, always with an eye towards what will be the most cost-effective solution. She has a breadth of knowledge borne from her many years as a litigator, the humility to know what she can handle herself, and when to consult with different legal specialists as required. Michele is always my first call whenever I need a business attorney."
" I came to Michele for help with resolving various claims that I had regarding a property that I co-owned. My co-owner and I could not agree on how to divide up the property after we ended our business relationship. After consulting with Michele, and obtaining her assistance with writing a letter, I avoided litigation altogether and resolved the situation amicably."
" Michele provides excellent honest service, and gives great advice. She is a good listener and understands her client’s needs. Intelligent, diligent, very pragmatic. "
"When we were threatened with a suit for non-disclosure from the buyer of our home we were really disheartened and at a loss for how to best handle the situation. Michele was both compassionate and straightforward when it came to explaining the grounds of our case. She made us confident in the fact that our case had no merit and that we would resolve prior to a lawsuit. We were able to resolve the matter through mediation and couldn't be happier with how Michele handled all aspects of our case."
