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.
I was very impressed with Michael knowledge about the traffic code and his caring to handle my case very diligence to get the best results for me in my traffic citation .I was very happy with the out come of my court .appearance .I feel that the out come won't have any better ending if his was not my lawyer ! Hands down I choose him a again if I ever need a lawyer again . Michael is the very best lawyer I have ever in my years driving with a cdl ! Outstanding lawyer chose him and the best results will happen with him as your lawyer thanks again Michael !!!!
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!
Michael represented me for a disorderly conduct citation. It was clear from the beginning that he has the knowledge, experience, and confidence to navigate what can be a very tricky legal system. Also, he is extremely organized, detailing everything I needed to know in emails, laying out all possible scenarios, and always returning phone calls promptly. He even took phone calls from me after hours on a couple of occasions because I did not have privacy to talk about it at work. Overall, I have no complaints about Michael and would hire him again in the future.
Represented me in a traffic violation. My concern was the points. Did a great job listening to me and understood what happened and why I was considering fighting a ticket for the first time in my life. Told me my options and what he thought the outcome might be. Made sure I understood he couldn't guarantee anything, but that he felt there was a good chance the points would get dropped. Was clear in explaining the cost I would pay for his services, his background and how he would approach my situation. Gave me the option of appearing with him in court, or to have him handle this 100%. I chose to have him handle this 100%. He called me the day before the court date to review the facts again. Called me the evening after his time in court to let me know the outcome. He was able to get the points dropped and needless to say I was very happy. I hope I never have to use Mike again, but wouldn't hesitate to do so if I needed his services in the future.
When I received Mr. Feinman's mailer after my accident I had no idea what to expect but I followed my instinct and called his office. I left a message and he called me promptly. I explained my situation briefly and he offered to meet with me at my home because I was unable to walk.
From our first meeting to our last and every one in between, the communication was great. He explained my options and gave me some insight on who he was. I felt confident that I had chosen the right attorney.
Today I had my hearing. Michael Feinman did exactly what he said he would do. He helped me win my case. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of an attorney. I will also use him for any issues I may have in the future.
