I know Michael Streng from working with him on a seminar committee, which lead to us working together on a few cases. I am impressed with his knowledge, and he is a very talented trial lawyer. If I needed an attorney for a DUI or any other type of litigation, I would not hesitate to have Michael Streng represent me.
