If you're looking for the best Defense Attorney for your DUI case, Michael Fienman is the attorney for you. We had a very unique case and from the very first phone call to Michael he was positive. more than knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to find out as much information as possible on the unique characteristics of our case. Michael answered all phone calls personally, returned calls usually same day or he would email any information needed. This was a very trying time for my daughter and myself and Michael always had a positive word and made the process easier to handle. It took over a year for our case to come to court, Michael stood by us every step of the way. I can't say enough about how much I appreciated Attorney Fienman's professionalism and personality. Here's my statement,"If you were looking for the a doctor to handle a devastating disease you would look for the best, when we found Michael Fienman we found our expert." Don't hesitate to make that initial call to Attorney Fienman, I believe you will not regret it!!!
Mike did not overstate my position, he admitted it would be very difficult if not impossible to achieve an outcome that I would find acceptable. He explained the situation that we were facing in the jurisdiction where we were conducting our business, a point further illustrated by where we were forced to conduct our pretrial discussion. If you know him, ask him about it, he said it was a first for him
Mr. Fienman provided detailed, thoughtful advice In dealing with an issue that arose concerning a family member. His expertise was invaluable in helping us understand the situation we were facing. He went far beyond expectations in delivering timely, insightful advice. His prompt addressing involve procedural issues was quite exceptional, as was his willingness to resolve all of our questions and concerns.
I have had the misfortune over my life to know hundreds of lawyers both personally and professionally. 99% of them deserve the bad reputation they have given their profession. It has been my experience repeatedly, that no matter how much you are paying a lawyer, they represent themselves. Michael Fienman is in the 1% of lawyers. He is there to do his best for his clients. Additionally, even when he could charge higher fees, he keeps his agreements and provides an excellent service at a fair price. He is an expert is his field and is always just a phone call away.
I would recommend Mike to anyone. One of the few "old school" lawyers left.

600$ went up to 2100$ after 10 days no respnse from me. I called Lawyer Michael hired him I didn't show in court for stupid reason. He represented me in court I was very afraid of loosing my CDL. He called me and surprised me with the wiping out 3 tickets out of 4 including - careless driving ticket is a career killer- and 150$ ticket and 2 points for 1 year out if no tickets added for 1 year. Lawyer Michael saved me $ and suspension and job with a little payment for his efforts. Thank Lawyer Michael and I recommend him .
Great attorney. I am fortunate that Michael Fienman represented me for citations I received during a business trip in PA. I live and Florida and naturally had concerns with the long distance situation. Mr. Fienman put my mind at ease from the beginning and insisted that I not worry. I am happy to say that my citations were dismissed! Great attorney and very personable. He treats you with compassion and respect which I found to be uplifting. I would highly recommend Michael Fienman as a defense attorney.
I love it when people can deliver on what they promise and that is exactly what Mr. Fienman did. I highly recommend Fienman Defense. They will work diligently in order to produce the best outcome for you.
I was faced with the probable suspension of my driver's license. He assuaged my fears and came through on erasing most of the points from 3 tickets and protected my license. I paid him a one time up front fee that was less than his rivals. These days it is rare for someone to deliver on their promises like he did.
Mr. Fienman was a superlative choice for me, for representation in a collection of traffic accident-related charges. He guided me expertly through the process, and negotiated expertly on my behalf with the State. Clearly, his extensive experience with all the local municipalities contributes to his efficiency and results.
But more, on a personal level, he was able promptly to; calm my nerves, reassure me that things would go relatively smoothly and provide the needed leadership as I ventured into a world that I have no experience with. He showed a high degree of professionalism, while at the same time giving me the sense that I had a new friend, who although a regular person, just happens to have total mastery of the legal world. I would absolutely hire Michael again, and would enthusiastically recommend him to anybody entering the world of our legal system. You can retain him with the utmost confidence!
