“I’ve been in the court system for around 3 years now and Michael has been my lawyer through it all. He’s taken care my struggles to get parenting time, helped with getting me a break in child support due to my circumstances, and the most important part he got me an evidentiary hearing. Michael is very experienced and will fight for you in court...“

“My Fiancé and I had just split up. I was already heartbroken and then, WHAM! I was served an Order for Protection. It was full of false accusations, but, I was scared. I was embarrassed. I was worried about what people would think, and worst of all, I had no idea what to do. So, I got ahold of Michael Fink. We went to court and we won…”

“Michael, & his firm did a great job representing me during a recent OFP proceeding. My wife surprised the heck out of me by filing the order of protection. There was nothing to support her case & the truth was on our side.”

What Makes Michael H. Fink Uniquely Qualified To Represent You?

My specialty is family law, and my approach is focused on helping clients navigate the complex and emotional experience of family law issues including divorce, determining parenting time, child custody and support, dividing property and deciding alimony. My goal is always the best possible outcome given my client’s objectives. I also seek to minimize the negative emotional and economic impact of the divorce process on children within the family system.  (Studies have shown that children in high conflict divorces do not do as well later in life, as the children in low conflict divorces.)   While I am a fierce advocate for my clients, I never deliberately fan the flames of conflict and anger that may hinder the process of resolving the case or that eventually have a harmful effect on the children.

I guide my clients through every step of the divorce process, from filing the initial petition, preparing for and attending mediation,  participating in settlement conferences and if necessary, preparing for trial.  While most of my cases settle out of court, I have the experience to manage your case through a full blown divorce trial.  My trial experience in divorce, includes establishment of child custody and parenting time, child support, spousal maintenance/alimony, and the division of marital property.  I have also litigated modification of child custody and parenting time for marital and non-marital children, modification of child support, enforcement of orders for spousal maintenance and child support, grandparent custody and visitation, orders for protection and harassment restraining orders.

Prior to becoming an attorney,  I owned a small business, and I drew on that experience to negotiate fair and equitable property settlements, parenting plans, and even prenuptial agreements that help protect the rights and assets of soon to become newlyweds.
