I started working with Michelle Adams back in May when I decided I wanted to do a short sale. She told me that it would be difficult to get a full waiver from the second lender, but that she would do what she could to minimize the financial impact. At the end, Michelle was able to pay the second lender enough that they agreed to settle the remaining debt and I was not required to bring any money to closing. From the very first call with Michelle I knew I was in good hands and slept a little better at night. I would recommend working with Michelle to anyone who has a property that is underwater and is considering selling their home. Sincerely Yours, A very satisfied client.

I have worked with Michelle Adams on short sales for over 5 years.

She has successfully negotiated and closed all the transactions I have worked on with her.  She will help every step of the way and keep you and your client informed weekly.  Even if there is no news to report, you still hear from her.  The most important part of a short sale is communication and Michelle keeps the line of communication open with everyone involved in the process.  Since paperwork in a short sale is very time sensitive she makes sure to let you and your client know if additional paperwork is required as soon as she hears it is needed, even if she finds out in the evening, she doesn’t wait until the next business day to let you know.  She is very passionate about her work and enjoys helping people, I think this sets her apart from the rest, she cares about the people she works with so she goes above and beyond to make sure each transaction goes smoothly.

L.N., Client

Mr. Timothy Sessing, thank you for what you did for me during one of the worst experiences of my life.  Without your help, I could not be where I am today.  God bless you, your family and your law firm.

K.T., Client

Dear Michelle, I wanted to say thank you for giving me my life back.  With all my heart, thank you.

I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa Brault, of Adams Morris & Sessing, on several short sale transactions.  She does a fantastic job from the moment she meets clients to counsel them about their options through the negotiations with banks to get the short sale accepted.  And she does a top notch job of keeping the realtors and clients updated  during the entire process.  Over the years Melissa has established strong relationships with banks across the country. Her enthusiasm and tough negotiating skills are evidenced by her outstanding success rate in getting these deals closed.

J. P., Client


When competent and dependable legal representation was very important to me and my family, Melissa Giove Brault of Adams Morris & Sessing was there for us.

A mutual acquaintance referred to Melissa as being a bright, honest, sincere and hardworking advocate. She is that and much more.

Melissa was able to help us to distill the facts, put aside emotion, and work through issues.  She used a knowledgeable and disciplined approach to arrive at various strategies. She explained the pros and cons, the risks and rewards, while letting me and my family choose the course.

I have recommended Melissa to friends who have been similarly satisfied, and I would not hesitate to recommend her again. Her fees are reasonable and she is very conscientious.

In my opinion, Michelle Adams of Adams, Morris & Sessing is the absolute best in her field.
She is compassionate with the clients, firm with the banks, and fair with the brokers.
I wouldn’t trust my client’s short sale issue and financial hardships with anyone else.
