“All marriages are not meant to be forever. Mine was one of those. It was a toxic relationship involving children, property, and personality disorders. To complicate things even more, it was a very long relationship of almost 30 years, and according to the judge himself, ours was “the most severe case of parental alienation he had ever been involved in”.
I had no idea how to solve this problem. That is when I started to look for help. I was hoping to find a knowledgeable lawyer that would guide me to resolve my situation expeditiously, without complicating things even more; and more important, I needed someone that I could trust.
That is when I learned about Mr. and Mrs. Addicott. From my first visit with them, I knew that they were the right people to represent me in this case.
A year has passed since my divorce was final, and I am more convinced than ever that hiring them was one of the most important decisions I have ever made.
Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Addicott for giving me my life back!”
“Michael & Sari,
Don’t know what I would have done without both of you. I was in a marriage of 21 years with 5 kids, a controlling and a belittling marriage and no place to turn. I had what I thought was a good attorney and that he was looking out for my best interest, until I found out otherwise. With the help of my sister we found the both of you. My life started to become my own again after all those years of not knowing who I was anymore! You not only helped me through a very challenging divorce, at the same time as the divorce you helped me settle a lawsuit from the hospital of all my past medical bills which my husband refused to pay while we were married. Even after my divorce I came to you for help with a credit card dispute which was resolved in my favor. I can’t thank you both enough for all the help you have given me over the last 7 years. I will always come to the both of you when I have any legal issues that need to be resolved. With the confidence and trust that you will always have my best interests in mind.”
“No one ever gets married thinking they will one day get divorced. And if you do, you certainly hope that the person you were in love with won’t become a monster. But life is funny and things happen that we sometimes cannot explain. You need to be represented to protect your interests and also you need someone who is going to give you guidance and good advice. Your goal is not to destroy the other person, but merely get the best and most appropriate settlement.
If your goal is to go out and hurt the other person you will only reap what you sow.
Demanding what is right and appropriate under the law is perfectly acceptable.
When I knew I was going to be getting a divorce I looked around for the right person to do the job. I wanted someone who would be strong but not off the charts downright mean and nasty. I wanted someone who was professional, was very familiar with family law and maybe even someone who had been involved in mediation since you will have to go before a mediator.
I interviewed no less than 4 attorneys. When I met Michael Addicott the first thing I noticed is he was all about business. Not exactly a person you want to sit down for a long chat with. But you see this was a good thing. He came across very knowledgeable, smart, confident, professional and he also was someone I knew could be nice when necessary and appropriate but also someone who could be strong, firm and focused when needed.
Although my wife hired a lawyer who made Michael’s job more difficult, Michael always handled it with a cool head and Michael’s advice was “spot on” no matter what situation I was asking him about.
Michael will not become your best friend but he will serve you, get the job done and let you sleep good at night knowing he has control of the situation.”
