Client Testimonials

My attorney should be your attorney

“Michael is a straight-shooter and sharp as a tack. I hired Michael without hesitation because he actually tried to talk me out of hiring him! He guided me step-by-step through a difficult time in my life when visitation with my daughter had stopped for no reason. Thanks to Michael, my daughter and I have a wonderful relationship and I see her regularly again. Michael knows divorce law through-and-through so don’t hesitate to contact him if you need of legal help or advice!”

John, divorce case

It was a pleasure to work with Attorney Franklin!

“Michael helped me conclude my alimony payments under Massachusetts alimony reform law. This new law isn’t yet well understood by the legal system and Michael explained my options to getting alimony concluded. We successfully negotiated an end to alimony without having to go to a costly trial. Michael has a professional and pleasant demeanor but can also show a valuable tough side when needed during negotiations. Throughout the process, he and his paralegal Deb kept me informed of all information and steps. He was open to my suggestions as well as providing his own expertise. I was always able to easily reach Michael by either phone or email. I will turn to him in the future if I need any legal representation in the family court system.”

Excellent Divorce Attorney

“Michael is my attorney and represented me in my divorce proceedings. He patiently explained Massachusetts Law to me. He also guided me through the whole process resulting in a divorce last fall. I recommend him to you if you are contemplating a divorce.”
Eric, divorce case

Highly recommend

“Attorney Michael Franklin recently represented me in court when another party was trying to get permanent guardianship of my child. He returned phones calls and emails very quickly. Michael was also very professional. He had less than an hour to help me prepare to testify and feel comfortable in any possible situations I might face. We won that day! I have my son back and couldn’t be more grateful. I highly recommend Michael he was a pleasure to work with.”

James, Jefferson Massachusetts

“Attorney Michael Franklin represented me when I sought custody of my teenage daughter. Her mother had physical custody of her for fourteen years and was her primary caretaker for that time. I had never been married to her mother. I knew this fight was going to be an uphill battle.

I have dealt with several other attorneys through the years. However, Michael’s knowledge of the law and experience allowed him to navigate the legal system in a manner that was unmatched. He was up front with me from the beginning about what my chances were and about the time and effort that would be needed to see this through. He was a true professional every step of the way and completely committed to the case. He promptly returned every call I made to him and made himself available after hours and weekends. He took a genuine interest in the case and the well being of my daughter.  [Read more…]
