Michael W. Albee

Family Law

My name is Michael Albee, and I am a Family Law Attorney and Mediator. I can also help you with child support needs and domestic violence situations. I was born and raised in Phoenix and am a third-generation Phoenician. My first career was working as writer for numerous blogs and websites. Then, after having my daughter at a very early age, I decided, after trudging through every emotion of a custody battle, to pursue a career in law so that I could help people navigate the murky waters of custody and divorce.

I draw on my personal experience and legal knowledge to help people consciously move through the process of divorce and custody battles. During divorce and custody disputes, our focus is always on the children and what is going be in their best interest. While their names aren’t listed on the pleadings or on the Court docket, we recognize that they are the most important part of any divorce or custody dispute. We do our best to ensure you and your family maintain a positive quality of life while going through the divorce process. There will be a new daily routine to your family’s life; it is part of my job as a Family Law Attorney to help you adapt to it.

We treat our clients like family and each client is encouraged to contact us as quickly as possible the moment an emergency may arise. The intent is to ensure every client has some peace of mind during a time that can feel like you’re stuck in a twisting tornado spinning in every direction. If you are a dealing with a divorce or custody dispute and you need someone to talk to, we’re happy to help. Please call me to arrange a free initial consultation to discuss your matter.

David Gerszewski

Estate Planning

My name is David Gerszewski and I am an Estate Planning Attorney and Probate Lawyer. I was born and raised in North Dakota and first moved to Arizona in 1992 to pursue graduate studies in applied statistics at Arizona State University. My first career working for Wall Street investment banks and hedge funds took me to New York and then to London for almost 20 years. After leaving institutional finance, I moved to Florianópolis in South America, where I developed a restaurant franchise concept that spread throughout southern Brazil.

I again made Arizona my home in 2014 and now operate the Citadel Law Firm® based in Chandler serving East Valley clients in estate planning, wills and trusts, and tax law. Our law practice designs personalized estate, business, retirement and tax planning strategies for clients, which are designed to coordinate with clients’ existing investments, pensions, life insurance and annuities. Through a legally distinct financial planning entity that is not a law firm, our clients may also receive guidance on investment management and life insurance retirement planning (IMLIRP) strategies.

I draw on extensive commercial and international experience to represent clients developing new businesses, protecting intellectual property (trademarks, copyrights and patents), planning for business succession and resolving related legal issues as they arise.

We approach our clients like family. My unique background across several industries in investment banking, investment management, small business entrepreneurship, tax and law allows me to provide comprehensive, coordinated and optimized solutions tailored to clients, their families and their businesses. This coordinated approach for most clients results in financial security, peace of mind and a clear understanding of the resources that will be available when difficult times arise.
