Our family was facing a fairly complex situation in caring for our aging mother. The family and financial dynamics were such that we had concern we would not be able to assist our mother and protect assets she needed for long-term memory care. The Sayre, Sayre and Fossum team guided us over a three-year period in making informed decisions each step of the way. Our mother is today being well-cared for and our goals to help her age well have been recognized. We couldn’t have arrived at this positive conclusion without their assistance.
I was laid off 38 days after filing a hostile-work-environment sexual harrasment complaint at my organization. I knew this complaint was a key factor in my layoff. I turned to Michelle, who had also instructed me in a course at Whitworth University, and she walked me through my options. Instead of going through a long lawsuit process, I was able to negotiate a larger severance pay. This enabled me to stand up for myself without damaging my professional reputation in a small community. This was a perfect solution for me and my family. If I have similar needs in the future, I'll absolutely use her again.
Michelle Fossum and her staff worked so hard and dilligently on our case. She always kept us in the loop and we had access to her and her staff anytime we needed them. I can't say enough good things about Michelle and my wife and myself couldn't be happier with the outcome of our case. Would recommend her to anyone!
I do not live in the state that I was sued so I had to hire an attorney in the state where I was being sued that I had never met to represent me. I was blessed to have hired Michelle Fossum who upon taking my case responded immediately and was the most effective, efficient and responsive attorney that I have ever encountered. Even though my case was not a life or death matter, Michelle treated it as though it was. I had access to her 24/7. She kept me informed at every step of the negotiations and she would not let the sun go down without giving me a call with the latest information so I could rest easy at night and week-ends. She listened to me, and made sure that she fought for the issues that were important to me. She explained in detail any issue that I questioned without making me feel compromised. Within record time she had a successful resolution to my case at unbeliveable low cost due to her immediate attention to all details and quick execution. I would recommend her to anyone with employment law issues!
Michelle and her office staff are courteous, professional and dedicated to our business. They work hard to understand the core of our business and does represents our company well. We feel very confident with Michelle and her abilities to handle the unfortunate matters that a small business may face in to days market.
