Michael Black represented me in my very difficult custody and child support proceedings. My case was unique and highly contentious and we were dealing with a very difficult father. There was no one that could have dealt with this kind of person other than Michael Black.

He always kept the best interest of my son the priority and, I later learned, not all lawyers will do that. Mr. Black was truly compassionate and treated me with utmost respect. His expertise and “no nonsense” approach while fighting for my son and myself the entire time, makes Michael truly unique and exactly who I needed for my case. He gave me his personal cell number on the day we began the case — he knew what I needed.

I would recommend him for any case.  If it’s a straightforward one, you still need someone like Michael Black on your side and, if it’s complicated and tough, there’s no one else you would want on your side.

Michael Ian Black, Esq. helped me through a difficult situation with my ex-wife.

He took the time to thoroughly understand our situation. He explained my options and helped me select the right course of action.

Besides being compassionate & understanding, he was very efficient. His fee was reasonable. I’m glad I found him.

I recommend him highly.

When no other lawyer would give me the time of day. Michael Ian Black did!

When everyone else turned me away he did not! He speaks honestly, and I think he is a great Attorney. I had a very old case that another attorney completely dropped the ball on, and after five years Michael was able to have my very old case that had been dismissed, restored to the court’s active calendar.

I will forever be grateful to this man.


Michael Ian Black, Esq. was referred to me by a friend I completely trust. He was exactly what I was looking for as I was working through my divorce. He supported my custody and relocation case successfully. Through every step of the way, Michael was professional, level-headed, and bold making sure that the steps I was taking were approached with great thought and care. Although a complex situation Michael’s expertise made it a lot easier and I can now say that time is past me, but Michael remains a trusted advisor and friend.
