I met Michael about 9 years ago when I needed help filing an Immigration case for a spouse, I was very surprise and quite impressed with how smooth and quickly everything worked out. Michael is very professional and highly knowledgeable and current with the immigration laws, so it was no surprise when it had a potentially life changing event happen a few months ago I went straight to Michael with tears rolling down my face. I informed him of my situation, and right away he went into lawyer mode and explained to me step by step the good and the bad of the situation, he then told me what we had to file to begin this long process of a Waiver under 212(h) Immigration act. What I truly admire about Michael is his honesty he tells you like it is, he is always truthful. In this immigration case my close family member was inadmissible to re-enter into the USA you could imagine how stressful this was on my family week after week, but Michael came to the rescue and by all means this was a STRESSFUL case for him as well. Michael had to present his case before the judge a whole case together in a matter of days not weeks or months literally days we had ONE CHANCE ONLY to get this right with many sleepless nights along with Pray, Hope, and Faith Michael along with his fabulous team went to work to get everything that was needed. I cannot thank him and the Ladies in the office for all their hard work and keeping me calm when I felt so broken and very helpless at times. I just want to say Thank You, Thank You so much I'm so grateful for their support. And of course with lady luck on our side we won, YES WE DID. Michael made lightning strike twice all I can say is Michael Detzky is The Man. When it comes to Immigration Law Michael Detzky is THE MAN for the job i personally and HIGHLY recommend him, BECAUSE OF HIM OUR FAMILY IS WHOLE AGAIN.

As other reviewers have stated, filing bankruptcy is a very upsetting situation. Mr. Detzky make the entire process painless and kept me informed every step of the way. His assistant, Stephanie, is very personable and efficient. Mr. Detzky never made me feel embarrassed that I had to result to bankruptcy to solve my financial situation. I would recommend him without reservation.

I was more than scared and hesitant to undertake a bankruptcy filing when I first met with Mr. Detzky. But, from the first meeting and continuing on through the filing process Mr. Detzky has been an informative and calming hand in guiding me through this process. He is thorough, professional without being intimidating, and always willing to answer any question I might have. He has helped to guide me in a way that is both reassuring and painless. I no longer look at my situation as dire and embarassing but as a way to re-start my life after some family catastophes befell me. I would highly recommend Mr. Detzky to anyone who thinks they need to file for bankruptcy. They will find themselves in capable and compassionate hands.

I recommend Michael without hesitation for several reasons:
* He made sure we were well informed every step of the way.
* His support staff was also well informed and friendly.
* Inevitably there was always the question we forgot to ask and every single one was answered in a timely fashion.
* Finally, we went in feeling like trash and he would not allow us to leave his office with the low opinion of ourselves. He said bankruptcy is designed to help decent people who made mistakes. It helped ... we appreciated the sentiment, it's still tough knowing you failed.

For 12 years I was running from a judgment that was filed against me.
It was never properly served to me and by the I found out about it
I thought it was to late to take any action. I went to different lawyers
Who quoted me outrageous sums of money just to try and reopen the
Case. I found Mr Detzky who not only settled my case with one letter
Written but also resolved the issue at a reasonable cost. Wow would highly recommend this lawyer. He saved my credit, and my financial life!!!

I never had a good lawyer in my life that actually worked for ME and not my money. Michael Detzky Is the BEST LAWYER I ever had by far. He went out of his way to help me in spite of my lack of some of my needed documentation and took all the pressure and worry out of my case for me. I can't thank him and his staff enough. I'll never use another law firm again. THANKS AGAIN, Michael.

Mr. Detzky made my wife and me feel very comfortable and gave us a sense of caring when we first met him. When we walked out we both said we made the correct decision to retain Mr. Detzky. I'll give you an analogy that is very appripro. Unfortunately my wife just went through cancer and surgery and we visted many doctors and usrgeons to pick which we hoped were the best in their respective fields. We wound up with a surgeon in NYC and an oncologist in Freehold, NJ. Why because they gave us hope, they gave us their time and most importantly they held my wifes hand and looked her in the eyes and told her she would be ok. The instilled compassion, hope and faith in her and I. Qualities not found much in tese times. Mr. Detzky is one of thse people put your trust in him and he will do right by you.
