Michael was great with my case. I got my driver license suspended for not appear to court for driving an uninsured vehicle, not mentioning the bench warrant I got for all this. Michael took care of everything, he is trustworthy and very helpful, He calls, and answer back calls immediately even he is super busy he makes times for all his clients. My case went smooth and satisfactory in every way.

Michael Garagozlo was extremely helpful, professional, and successful with my case. Having know Mike as my lawyer, as well as someone close to the family, I would recommend him to anyone in need of a legal representative. He was able to get my ticket and points dropped and did everything he could to make my life as easy as possible throughout the process.

I hired Michael Garagozlo to help me with a DWI/DUI. To make matters worse, there were additional charges of a similar nature. Michael was able to resolve my case with what I consider the best possible result. The goal was a clean record and a clean record I will have. The thing I liked most about working with Michael is that he was straightforward and clear when speaking with me. He set expectations appropriately. He returned all of my calls immediately. He "held my hand" throughout the entire process making sure I didn't miss anything important. All-in-all I would recommend Mr. Garagozlo to all of my friends and family should they find themsevles in the unfortunate position of needing a lawyer.

TWO MEMBERS OF MY FAMILY AND I HAVE USED MICHAEL ON THREE DIFFERENT CASES AND IN ALL EVERYTHING THAT HE TOLD US THAT HE WILL DO HE WAS ABLE TO DO IT. I REMEMBER HE WILL ALWAYS TELL US THAT JUST DO WHAT I WILL TELL YOU TO DO AND LEAVE THE REST FOR ME. AT THE TRAIL HE TOOK OF EVERYTHING US HE PROMISE AND I WAS SET FREE AND AFTER THAT HE HELPED ME TO FILE EXPUNGEMENT FREE OF CHARGE BECAUSE OF THE TRUTH THAT HE TOLD US THERE WAS A DIFFERENT CASE THAT I WANTED HIM TO HANDLE FOR ME HE TOLD ME THAT HE DOES NOT DEAL WITH SUCH CASES ANY MORE UNLIKE SOME LAWYERS THAT WILL HANDLE IT BECAUSE OF THE MONEY. HE WAS

I have used Mr. Garagozlo numerous times over the past 13 years to represent me in DUI cases, small misdemeanors and even traffic cases. Every time he is very thoughtful in his approach, is helpful in his advice to guide me in the right direction, keeps me informed, and at the end of the day gets the best possible result every time. I have no reason at all to use anyone else as my attorney. I would, and I have, absolutely recommend Michael Garagozlo to anyone who needs outstanding legal representation.

I only worked with a handful of attorney in the past but Michael is one of the attorney I would recommend to my friends if, by any chance, they needed a lawyer. Michael is very trustworthy, dependable, organized and most importantly, he gave me a piece-of-mind regardless how complicated my case was. I feel I am fortunate enough to find the right lawyer to present myself in court.

I was impressed with Mr. M. Garagozlo the very first time I met him at his office. He reviewed my case with me and did his best to educate me about my offense and what to expect if I were to be found guilty. He gave me options and provided me with valuable information regarding the expectations of the court.. Suffice it to say that that the outcome of my case was very favorable because of his suggestions and the way he represented me. I will be proud to refer him to any one because of his grit and professionalism. Did I mention that I was referred to him by another satisfied client?

It is truly my pleasure to recommend Michael to anyone who finds themselves in the nightmarish position of being charged with achohol and other related offenses as was the situation in my case. After making a terrible and regretful decision to drink and drive I found myself facing eight total serious charges in all. This nightmare had begun for me and my family and had now become my reality. I was not sure exactly what to expect but I knew that the consequences would be severe as I had a previous achohol related offense on my record from twenty-four years ago and this one was much worse. Michael immediately put my fears at ease and explained to me a game plan that we would follow and that proved to be my salvation. The payment plan he offered was very helpful and most reasonable also. I could finally sleep at night again. His strategy was masterful as he worked my case through the various obstacles and roadblocks. It was very clear to me that Michael's knowledge and relationships with the prosecutor and the judges in my case were invaluable. The end result kept me driving, my driving record good and very much relieved by not having to be incarcerated. My family and I cannot thank Michael enough for his professionalism and expertise which saved the day and ended the nightmare.

Michael, was upfront and honest about the circumstances. However, he aslso calmed my fears that my poor decision to drink and drive was going to ruin my current standing as an emplyee, husband, and father. Getting arrested and dragged to the local precinct can be sobering to say the least. Michael was always available to answer any questions along the way and has both the experience and familiarity with the local justice system. It was apparent at trial that he knew the judges and state's attorneys that would be handling my case. Although, I paid a heavy financial price both in $$ and time to resolve the situation, I managed to come away with probabtion before judgement and effectively keep my record clean. If you ever need competent counsel I would recommend Michael Garagozlo...just remember that you will need to cross your t's and dot your i's for the next several months if you are facing a DUI or DWI charge. Being procative and having good counsel will go a long way to resolving the matter.

Mister Garagozlo has represented me in a complicated court case. I could not have asked for a better attorney, who was highly recommended to me by a former client!
His professional attitude and availability at any time for questions and so forth has been outstanding!
Sincerely, Reinhard Schmidt.

Mr. Garagozlo was such a blessing I can't believe I was so fortunate to find him from an Internet search. From the beginning he was very clear and honest to what my situation was and made me feel secure that he knew how to handle it with my best interest in mind. I was looking at possible jail time and I walked away with a PBJ. He clearly knows his way through the system has strong relationships with all legal branches involved to be able to advocate for his clients. I would highly recommend him I am confident he can help anyone facing legal issues and he was very pleasant and helpful. He definitely made me feel less stressed. Hire him you won't be sorry.
