I would not have won my breach of contract case without Mr. Michelen. I would like to state that I was suing in small claims court in a state that does not permit legal counsel in court. Mr. Michelen had spent 30 minutes of his time offering legal counsel to me for free. Or as a loss leader as he put it, lol. He had helped me shape my case concisely and emphasize points I had not considered prior to speaking with him. Mr. Michelen's points were the deciding factors of the case. I won the maximum judgement.
Mr. Michelen is very well informed and handled our issue very professionally. He was able to use his knowledge and experience to navigate the system for us and promptly negotiate a resolution. We would definitely recommend him.
Oscar Michelen is a fine lawyer and human being. He took on my case and worked to achieve results that I did not believe possible. He fully understood all the issues at stake and worked on my behalf to secure both a financial and moral settlement. I was impressed by his forthright approach and sincerity. My father had been an attorney and I am fairly well versed in the workings of the law and lawyers. Oscar is a cut above most. Professional ,yet compassionate. I highly recommend him.!! Thank you Oscar.
My experience with attorney Oscar Michelen was very good. He was very prompt and aggressive with my case. After just one letter from Mr. Michelen, the opposing party agreed to drop their claim.
Ambitious, hardworking and extremely respectful of EVERYONE, regardless of their status.
Oscar has been an invaluable asset in dealing with my case. I know that he has only my best interests in mind and I would trust him with any legal issue I had to deal with in the future.
I could never have imagined I would find an attorney on the Internet I could both respect and actually like. I was pleasantly surprised that I found an attorney that understood my case, my position, and the company I am dealing with. It turns out that Oscar is well-read on the Internet and makes it his business to be "in-the-know" in his area of specialty.
I make it a policy to check out on the Internet everyone I am looking to work with. I was pleasantly surprised that Oscar has been involved with many high-profile cases and has often represented the "underdog". He appears to have risen to prominence over the years based on the quality of work he has done and the types of cases he takes on.
In my consultation with Oscar, I found him easy to talk to and very sharp to pick up the salient points of the case. I have consulted with many attorneys over the years. I am sorry to say that I found many "textbook smart" but not courtroom smart. It was easy to pick up from Oscar that he knows his way around not just a courtroom but appears to comfortably navigate the legal system also.
What I find personally appealing about Oscar is the way he carries himself. Without a doubt he is intelligent, experienced, and assertive and yet, I never felt he was egotistical, boastful, or condescending. He breaks the stereotype of what a "typical attorney" is.
My working relationship with Oscar is not at an end yet. However, if he were to suddenly quit my case, I would have still been better off for having consulted with him then not.
I thank AVVO for allowing Oscar and I to connect.
