Mr. Gardner represented me in my difficult and complicated divorce. He explained the entire dissolution and custody process to me thoroughly and everything went just as he stated that it would. He talked me down on numerous occasions when I was pretty much hysterical and let me know that things would work out, which they did. He did not try to litigate everything just because he could do so. He was devoted to obtaining the best result for me and attempted to resolve issues through telephone calls and meetings with my ex-husband and his counsel, which doubtlessly saved us thousands of dollars. Once it (quickly) became clear that I was in capable hands, I was able to turn my attention away from these proceedings and focus on rebuilding my life. That is a true gift for which I will always be grateful. He was (and continues to be) professional, caring, honest, and, most importantly, effective and I recommend his services whole-heartedly.

I first met Mr. Gardner when I desperately needed help with an out-of-control divorce and custody situation. He was very attentive, thoroughly responsive, and absolutely compassionate as he helped me regain mental focus and legal control. Few attorneys practice their craft with the level of transparency and trust Mr. Gardner's clients enjoy as a matter of routine. As a senior management professional in a large Bay Area organization, I truly appreciate Mr. Gardner's no-nonsense, trustworthy, experienced approach solving legal problems.

D. McAllister


My former husband and I were both professionals with complicated property issues and young children. Emotions were running high and we were heading towards disaster. Fortunately, I retained Michael. He navigated very successfully through these very troubled waters. As an attorney, I can recommend him as a "lawyer's lawyer". Not cheap, but worth every penny.

C. Foster


Michael was always focused on reaching the quickest, most efficient and fair resolution possible. With dogged focus and exceptional legal expertise he was able to bring to a close a very difficult chapter in my life. In addition, he is simply a good person. My only regret is not having hired him first.
