At the start of her career, Michelle knew should be most effective in guiding her clients through likely one of the most tumultuous times in their lives by leading her own firm. In 2012, alongside Stephanie Greenberg, Michelle founded Greenberg & Sinkovits, LLC and have led their practice to be well-respected by their peers. Michelle ensures that she tailors each case to her client’s individual needs, and believes no two cases are the same. Michelle enjoys helping her clients’ transition to the next phase of their lives– whether that be through divorce, prenuptial agreements, or overcoming domestic violence. Michelle is especially proficient in helping her clients navigate complex financial situations. Michelle excels in the courtroom, but also focuses her energy on settlement, mediation, and Collaborative Divorce. When possible, Michelle approaches each case with settlement in mind, as she believes that is the best route in most situations, but she is also readily prepared to take issues to court.
