I'm very happy and satisfied to have had Michael represent me during a tough time in my life. From day one, Michael was very supportive and non-judgmental of my situation. After our initial phone conversation, he agreed to meet with me on a holiday, and as someone who had never been through the legal system, he laid out clearly the steps and potential outcomes of my case, as well as presented me with an intelligent and straight-forward strategy to represent me. He really seemed to listen to my concerns and understand my goals which helped me feel more confident in how he defended me. Michael went above and beyond answering the numerous questions and concerns I had regarding my case. He was very adamant in his negotiations with the prosecution in obtaining a plea deal thus saving me lots of future embarrassment and negative consequences in my life. I truly believe that many attorneys would not have been able to do what he did in as short of time as he had. As a person who is constantly thinking of every sort of outcome and loophole, he has never failed to answer any of my questions, even after my case had finished. He seems to understand MN criminal law very well and was easily able to reference statutes from memory at my court appearance. Above all, Michael really seemed to care which I cannot thank him enough for. If you are in a bind and looking for a good attorney, I would recommend Michael in a heartbeat.
