Could not have asked for a better appeals attorney. I am an attorney myself and thanks to an ugly battle with my ex-husband, I have had to work with several different attorneys. Michael handled the appeal that my ex filed and all i can say is that I wish he could be handling all of the marital matters I have to deal with. He is professional, very responsive and compassionate. He was thorough in the preparation of my brief and is extremely knowledgeable in his field. He was fair in terms of fees. I cannot say enough positive things about Michael. I would run out of space! I highly recommend him for any family law appeal matter you have.”

Appeal. My son and I were looking to an appeal attorney to handle a Hague case that we felt was unfairly decided. [I]n the course of our search we found several competent lawyers who said they would take on our case. We were surprised to hear from them that although they could take on the appeal they thought Mike Giel would be the best choice for our case[;] we thought he must be the best choice as so many people recommended him. They were right[.] [H]e has been great[;] he not only seems well versed in the process[,] he also takes the time to explain things in a way that a layman can understand.”

Detailed, Hard working & Family 1st! My divorce lasted approximately three years and I had three different attorneys during that time. What should have been a relatively straight forward divorce … turned into a massive disaster. A large part of that was my choice of representation at a critical moment in the case. … [I]n the end [Mike] was the best thing that could have happened for me and my children. He took a colossal mess, straightened it out & help[ed] me achieve the best possible outcome. …”
