    Hired attorney

    To make long story about my case short, I should say that he is one of the best in his field. If he says he can do it, he means it and he does. Thank you Mike for helping me in my case.

    Hired attorney

    Maitri "Mike" Klinkosum recently represented me and I would hire him again in a second. He took the time to discuss my case with me thoroughly, offering insight on what I should expect from the beginning. Mike was always responsive anytime I called or emailed with questions and did an excellent job of keeping me posted on my case and the next steps. I would recommend Mike to any family member or friend without hesitation, a real professional.

    Hired attorney

    Until recently, Mike Klinkosum spent his career in the Wake County Public Defender Office, which is to say that he never learned anything about customer service. Mike was never reported to be in the office when I called, and he did not return my phone messages. He would respond to emails but only to report how busy he was with the cases of other clients.

    Mike dragged out a case for more than a year that should have taken a few months. He claimed to be researching and speaking to other attorneys, crafting and reworking things, but in the end his paperwork wasn't even filed properly, was rejected, the case prejudiced, and more time was lost due to his carelessness.

    I specifically retained his services and requested research on a particular issue. My request was ignored, and Mike's lack of due diligence cost me thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses, costs that could have and should have been avoided.

    Rather than apologize for his mistakes, Mike chose to downplay their significance. When faced with legitimate criticism, he chose to insult me. As the months turned into years, Mike showed less and less enthusiasm for the case, me as a client, or a successful outcome.

    At the end of the representation, I had no faith in his ability, no confidence in his skill, and no trust that he would protect my best interests.

    Mike was hired for my son and I can't say enough about how helpful he was. Not only was his legal knowledge spot on, but his advice was wonderful. It was a very difficult situation and Mike was patient, always responsive, and informative. He was great to work with, never making us feel like we were on the outside. I would use him again and recommend him with highest regards.

    I was permanent resident at the time the issue happened. Mike did a free consultation and heard my case thoroughly and went through all aspects of it. He asked proper questions and listened patiently. He even discussed the negative results of getting convicted or getting a plea deal on immigration i.e. being deported etc. I asked him, what steps he will take or how he will handle my case. He answered satisfactorily and told that he can't promise anything, but he will do his best. I hired him immediately. No lawyers should guarantee you anything, if they do it's a red flag, as it depends on the court and the judge etc. Other lawyers i talked to before, gave me 6 months, 12 month programs, plea deals etc which would have negative consequences on my immigration. Whenever I emailed or wanted to talk to Mike, he was available.and he responded promptly as fast he could. Mike got my case dismissed on the hearing date and he also got it expunged. This resulted me being able to become naturalized citizen which i otherwise couldn't have done so. He even met me after my case was done (which most lawyers probably wont do) and gave me advise for the future. I can't recommend Mike enough. To some his fee might be higher, but he's worth every penny and he gets his job done properly and gives you the satisfactory results and the ones which are best for your case. This might sound like an ad, but it's a true client feeling and testimonial. This gentleman did wonders for me and was always very professional, courteous and forth coming. He never tried to extort more fees or linger the case. I would suggest talk to all the lawyers and go with the one you feel comfortable with. In my case it was Mike. God bless him and I wish him and his firm all the success. If God forbid, I ever need a defense lawyer, it will be Mike in a heart beat and without hesitation. He never asked to write reviews online or do recommendation. I am so pleased with his performance, that I am writing this, so that it help those who might need a lawyer. Think about this, your criminal defense case is like a surgery case and you need the best possible doctor/surgeon for it, would you go to a joe schmoe doctor, who will mess it up or will you go to an expert one. There are many lawyers out there, make sure you choose the right one.

    Mr. Klinkosum was recommended to me by a different attorney. He was able to explain my situation before court and after court, as well as explain to me what I needed to do to make sure I had my case dismissed and my record expunged. He was a pleasure to work with and very helpful throughout the entire process (Approx. 1 year). I was very happy with his services.

    Mr. Klinkosum was always honest and hardworking in our dealings. I could not have asked for a better advocate and legal attorney during the time of my legal proceedings. Mr. Klinkosum was always prompt in responding to any questions I had, and he did not mislead me at any point by giving false hope or too dire of predictions. His advice was always clear, and with his help I believe I achieved the best possible outcome in my situation. I cannot stress enough how professional and personable Mr. Klinkosum was during this extremely stressful time.
