Family Law Attorney Specializing in Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Modification & Mediation
Michelle M. Murray is an experienced divorce laywer.
Going through a divorce is never easy and finding an experienced lawyer who can successfully handle your case is important for your future. Divorce is a complex area of law and several factors will need to be considered in each individual case. What worked for a friend or family member may not work for you. You need an attorney who is experienced in the field of divorce and will aggressively pursue your best interests.
This is always a stressful and sometimes scary situation. You need to know your rights and responsibilities. Even if you and your spouse seem to agree on everything, it’s important to know what you are getting and what you are giving up. You need an advocate who can be aggressive and more importantly an advocate who understands not only the legal system, but the emotional toll a divorce takes on the whole family.
The rules of divorce are complicated and many factors are taken into consideration by the court when determining the final outcome. I can help you understand those factors and help you to emphasize the good while minimizing the bad. Let me help you navigate through this difficult period to reach the outcome you desire.
Massachusetts is what is called an “equitable” state, which means that when your property and assets are split, the division must be fair, but not necessarily equal. I can help you get what’s fair. Did you own property before your marriage?
Would it be fair to have to share that property in your divorce? Did you spend years working and saving while your spouse cheated? Did you stay at home for years, taking care of your family? There are many factors that go into determining what is “fair” and “equitable”. I can explore those factors with you and present your case in the best light possible.
Custody laws are complicated and a determination of who gets custody of a child is based in large part on the child’s best interests. These days, the Courts are leaning toward shared custody in many cases. Is that in your child’s best interests? Or, is your child’s other parent a danger to your child? A bad parent?
Let me help you get that information to the judge so you can protect your child. Your child’s welfare and happiness are key factors in determining custody. I can help you fight for your child.
Michelle M. Murray handled my divorce. She is smart, experienced and hard working. She is also ethical, compassionate and capable of relating on a personal level which is helpful when difficult decisions need to be made. I highly recommend Michelle.
I hired Michelle Murray as my lawyer for my divorce three years ago. I felt confident and very happy with her services. She was not only professional but personable. It took a lot of the stress of the entire process off myself so I could concentrate on what was important, my children. I then hired her to go back when things got rocky one year after the divorce. My ex-husband was not following the divorce agreement. It was easy and fast and everything got resolved. It was like walking into the court with a shield of armor having Michelle with me.
Attorney Murray was able to retrieve tens of thousands of dollars that was owed to me in back child support. I live out of state. She made everything so easy and was very sympathetic and understanding.
I hired Michelle Murray to help with a lawsuit against a neighbor who owed me money. This neighbor co-owned my condex and refused to pay her share of the maintenance bills. After Michelle’s intervention as an attorney, not only did she help win my case, but she also helped the court award me what was owed to me, $600. I would recommend her legal services without reservations.
