Mediation client

I call Michelle "The Closer". So many of my clients find themselves frustrated and "stuck" in their legal processes. Once I refer them to Attorney Michelle Raymond - who is savvy and not interested in the typical attorney -who-wants-your-money, thing, they find immediate and effective results. Michelle truly knows how to get the job done, as effectively as possible, so divorcing women can MOVE ON and begin their new lives. Linda Waters, Founder Back to Business LLC I would recommend Attorney Michelle Raymond as an attorney to anyone needing mediation or legal advice on divorce. Divorce is stressful and emotional and throughout the process of my divorce, Michelle had my best interests at heart. She has a calm yet confident demeanor and is always focused and professional. I found her to be very patient in answering all my questions and returned calls and emails in a timely manner.

She is an advocate for families; she believes in keeping the interests of the whole family in mind through every step. Michelle continues to impress me with her calm, confident demeanor and ability to make suggestions and guide with integrity in any situation. She is not easily intimidated. She knows the law and is resourceful when looking for options.
