What people think of Michael W Seidel Law

Mike helped in gaining custody of my two children. As a father serving in the Army, this was by no means a slam-dunk custody case. Mike was very organized and prepared during the custody hearing. Today, my boys are living in a healthy environment thanks to Mike and his team. I would absolutely recommend his services to anyone seeking custody of their children.

I have used Mike for a very long time and all I can say is he is worth every dollar you might spend.
I can only say I would never give up my relationship with Mike he always has my back. I can Trust he will always do the right thing for me. I have used Mr Seidel for many situations and he always works very hard for the client.

Working with Seidel through a divorce was as good as it gets. He always maintained a respectful and civil demeanor with the other party and did not participate in mudslinging theatrics. Through his guidance and knowledge I learned to differentiate between issues that were negotiable and issues that required no budging. Divorce is never pleasant in and of itself, working with your attorney however should be. I fully recommend Seidel as a man of integrity.

Michael Seidel is a well educated, excellent lawyer! I’ve never been in trouble with the law, but I had a BAD lady file 2 false charges against me which caused me to be falsely arrested. However when we went to court, Michael was able to win my case(s) & prove to the Judge that I had done NOTHING wrong, and therefore I still have a clean record & no criminal history. Thank you Michael Seidel!!
