  • Aaron Jeffrey Boria

    Mr. Kessel has to be one of the best criminal defense lawyers in Michigan. In his first few years of practice Mr. Kessel held more jury trials then some attorneys will have in their entire life. His skills are beyond his years. If you are in trouble and you hire Mr. Kessel you can be sure that you are in good hands.

  • Jamil Kamel Khuja

    Mr. Kessel is an excellent attorney and has tried a number of cases against some of the most experienced prosecutors. He is always prepared and fights very hard for his clients. Any defendant would be in good hands with Mr. Kessel as his lawyer.
