    • I recommend Michael Jaafar.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    He worked really hard, and got us a great result. We were being sued by a firm for allegedly not paying our employees their overtime. Mike was able to completely beat the case for us, even though every other attorney we met with told us that we couldn't beat the case.

    • I recommend Michael Jaafar.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    mike went up against an overzealous prosecutor to defend me in a criminal sexual conduct case. he showed my accuser to be a liar, and won the case at trial with very little preparation. my old lawyer told me i had to plead guilty, or he would lose the case. i fired him, and hired mike at the last minute. mike was aggressive, clever, and fearless. he bullied the prosecutor around, and got his way. i'll never use another lawyer again. mike is like the lawyer's you grow up watching on tv and in movies.

    • I recommend Michael Jaafar.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Bankruptcy / Chapter 13 matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    The first 4 lawyers we spoke to were all intimidated by our case because it posed some really complex questions. they all told us that it would be an uphill battle, and that they would be "behind the eight ball on it." when we spoke to mike, he said the same thing, but that made him MORE eager to take our case. he filed it immediately, and fought like a bulldog against the trustee's. having him as our lawyer made us feel as though WE were finally in control.

    this guy is one tough cookie. i would recommend him to anyone who wants to actually win.
