    • I recommend Michael Petersen.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Michael kept me informed throughout my case. He told me what would happen and he was right. He told me right away that I could not be convicted. He was right. He is a great trial attorney. I was referred to him by another attorney and I know why. Great person, great .advocate

    • I do not recommend Michael Petersen.
    • I hired Michael 1-3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I will start by saying he was nice and knowledgeable. But I will not suggest anyone to pay him as he made promises and never followed through. There was a mix up on his end that he said he would take care of and never did and then stopped returning our calls. When I would finally catch him on his cell he would say he was taking care of it and nothing ever got fixed.

    • I recommend Michael Petersen.
    • I hired Michael more than 3 years ago.
    • Michael handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Michael saved my life. I was charged with Hit and Run causing Death and he fought for me and I was acquitted of the charges. My reputation was saved as well as my family. I can never repay Mike for his tenacity in the Courtroom. He was prepared and professional. Great Attorney.

    Mike was great. He made sure that I stayed out of jail and even got my felony dropped. He is great at what he does. I felt that I could trust him and his expertise.

    Mike is one of the hardest working individuals that I know. I hired him recently for my OWI and he thought of an argument to get me out of it and he won. What a relief for me. He is great, I recommend him to anyone!!
