I had a very good experience with Michael Young. I hired him for a first DUI offense. He won my case. One of the things I really appreciated was that he was always very upfront and honest with me. He never sugar coated anything. He will always let me know what the strengths and weaknesses of my case were. Also I must say, there are not to many attorneys that that are willing to try a DUI case and go for the long haul with you. He did with me, and Im grateful for it. I would certainly recommend him to my friends and family members and that says a lot.

It's not often that one finds an attorney like Michael Young. An experienced, confident and knowledgeable attorney that "saved my life" as it were. I was being stupid and received a DUI. I was at a complete loss and was thinking that I would lose my job. I did not know what to do. Fortunately, I contacted D. Michael Young, and it turned out to be the right move. He was able to take my case, even though he did not have a lot of time to prepare. The first thing he did was to ask for a continuance and amend my response. The next thing he did was to ask for depositions. This was a simple way to discover any shortcomings they had in their case against me. He was able to take the apprehension and fear out of having to respond to court ordered appearances. I was able to relax knowing I had a very competent attorney handling my case. I recommend him whenever I find someone that has need of legal representation. I won my case and have my license and my job.

Michael possesses a deep rooted passion to fight for justice. He refuses to lose which is backed by his nearly perfect track record. He is very smart, creative and strives to close and win the case quickly, not drag it out. I have personal accounts illustrating all these points. Michael is worth every penny.

Attorney Michael Young is a lawyer that will leave you smiling and sure glad you hired. With a pleasantly approached sense of humor, he helped make some of my past incidents end tremendously. With his knowledge, and ability to draw out the best result, I continued to reuse Mr. Young on future cases. You know how some lawyers barely communicate with you and keep you pretty much in the dark? This was never and issue for myself. Mike was consistently updating me on the whereabouts of my cases and what our next plans of actions were to be. High marks for his willingness to make you as his client, part of the case, inside and out. If you're looking for an attorney who is going to make an uncomfortable situation comfortable, read no more. Quick overview on what Mr. Young did for me: With a horrific driving record following me around, I was always managing to rack up my speeding tickets time and time again. I was referred to Mr. Young by a friend who told me, "acquire him...you won't be disappointed." Already in a tight spot with 5 previous tickets on my record, I was facing a license suspension. Not more than a couple months later, I was facing another long term license suspension! In both situations, I came away with my license still valid someway somehow. Once you use Mr. Young once, it doesn't make sense to even consider otherwise. Thanks bunches!

After 2 DUI's, many years of no license, and denial of my RDP, I researched and found Michael. After many consultations, I was most confident in Michael. From the beginning he covered all aspects of the Formal Hearing, including prep for all questions, processes, etc. we were completely ready the day of my hearing & he made sure I had all the correct documents. Got approved for my RDP after first hearing with Michael. Will certainly be using him again when needed full reinstatement hearing!

I had several DUI's and had a revoked license for years and once I contacted Michael Young he started the process which was long but he kept me informed and explained everything in detail so I understood what I needed to do. I had to have two hearings to get my license back each one we hit home runs at the hearing to get my license and Baid device. The process was long and not cheap but worth every penny. Michael is unlike most lawyers as he sees you and treats you as a person and not just a payday. A very cool lawyer to have and would reccommend to anyone who has had any DUI problems.

Michael Young took great care of me and my case could not had a better outcome. Other law firms told me I would not be able to reach this type of agreement but Mr Young was the best I have seen in a court room. Thank you.

Michael handled a debt collectors actions against me. I had my wages garnished. I felt helpless. There did not seem to be anything i could do alone. I gave Michael a call. I explained my situation. He asked me for any names, or numbers i had. i gave him what little i had, one name, one 800 number. he told me he would give them a call. I lost that hopeless feeling. I received a call that same day from Michael. He told me we should meet and discuss the situation in his office. He thoroughly reviewed all he had done towards my case. My wife and I were amazed. We expected good, he was beyond great. I was being wrongfully collected against. Michael promptly made calls and filed all the necessary papers to get the action stopped. I would have been pleased with just that. he did not stop at this though. I received all the money that i had collected from me. Awesome! that is how I felt at this point. I am beyond pleased with the results. I will never consider a different lawyer. I would ask Michael to recommend me one if he was not able. Knowing that he is going to give me no less than 100 percent.

Mr Young has represented many many times over the years and I can honestly say that I am driving today because of his expertise in the courtroom. Just resently I received two tickets. One for going 90 mph in a 55 mph zone and one for improper lane change. Mr Young talked to the state's attorney and had the speeder dropped. That was huge for me ( because of the huge fine and the added increase to my monthly car insurance ). Plus I just started a new job and that speeding ticket could very well have cost me that job. Mr Young has handled other cases for me as well. I was denied unemployment benifits over five times but once I brought Mr Young abord I was awarded my benifits which equaled over 40k. He has gone to bat for me many many times and he has hit a homerun for me every time. I've delt with other attourneys in the past and spent thousands of dollars with no results. Mr Young has a great repore with the judges, state's attorneys, and trooper/officers which equals better results. I found that he is a fair person and his prices are reasonable. Definately money well spent.

My wife was involved in an auto accident few months ago. Hers and another car collided on the highway and there was a pile up involving 7 or 8 other cars. Everyone tried to blame the accident on my wife and another driver when in fact they were driving too fast for the road conditions. My wife also got a ticket for "failure to reduce speed to avoid accident ". As soon as my wife called me to tell me she was in an accident, I called Michael Young ( I have used him before ) and asked for advice. Even though it was 6 am, He answered and gave the best advice possible: DO NOT talk to anyone, other than to provide insurance and driver's license information. That is what my wife did. The same day numerous people from different insurance companies called and all wanted a statement from my wife. On Michael Young's advice all callers were told to call his office and speak with him. When we went to court, the case was thrown out in a matter of minutes. I remember Michael Young's exact words when we left the court house. He said: " By not talking to anyone at the scene of the accident you did 95% of the my job". I am very grateful, I definitely would recommend his services to anyone who needs a good lawyer.

I was arrested for driving under the influence a while back, and hiring Michael J. Young to represent me was the best decision I ever made. When the officer pulled me over, he asked me how much I had to drink. I replied, "Not enough." After I was arrested, I bet the arresting officer $500 that my case would be thrown out. I also said many other things that I regret, such as the officers should be chasing real criminals, instead of making pointless arrests. I even went as far as saying that the officers were wasting their time. All of these things were brought up at trial, and it was very embarrassing. My lawyer questioned the officer feverishly throughout the cross examination phase of trial, which lasted quite some time. He ultimately got the officer to LIE, under oath!!! By questioning the officer about whether or not I was using the car door for support many different ways, he ultimately got the cop to slightly change his story, in front of the judge. That was what was needed to ensure that my DUI would be dropped. I did not think that was the case at the time. After all the cross examination and all the officer's brutal testimony, the judge was ready to decide on the case. As soon as he read the not guilty verdict, I was in shock. I couldn't believe that after at least an hour of this cop explaining how I was acting, cocky, combative, etc. to a judge, the judge decided that I was not guilty. All thanks to Michael Young!!!!! I will never hire anyone else, this guy is the MAN!!!! After the case was over, he asked me if I wanted to apologize to the officer for my rude behavior. I said no, and walked right past. I should've asked for my $500!!!!!

I have used Michael Young on multiple occasions and have had the desired results each time. Mike will fight for you like he fought for me – GUARANTEED! I was embarrassed when I received a 2nd DUI in a short timeframe, however, rather than lecture me on how stupid my reoffending was, he put me at ease with an educational overview of my situation and the likely outcome. I used Mike for defending my DUI all the way through the difficult process with the Secretary of State (formal hearing) to get my Drivers License back. Attorney Michael Yong is a one-stop shop for all DUI and Drivers License reinstatements – look no further! If results are what you are looking for – do NOT short change yourself and go with the cheaper Attorney – “you get what you pay for”!!! (Yes, payment plans are accepted) Trust me and go with Mike, you will be glad you did – GOOD LUCK!

Very professional and well articulated. In order to get positive outcome, went above and beyond of what was expected of any lawyer. Did an exceptional job keeping me informed on the case's status. Would highly recommend.

If you really want the best, look no further. Mr. Young truley is the tops in what he does. All I can say is WOW. My case was somewhat complicated, but Michal Young made my choices very clear and concise. Every appearance was planned and executed with skill and precision. I was kept informed as to what was being done and what the outcome I could expect. Every time I expected a home run, He would hit a grand slam! Mr. Young protected my rights and I truley feel had my best interest in mind. I highly recommend Michal J. Young

Attorney Michael Young was very professional in two occasions I needed his services. In both cases the end results were satisfactory. I have and will definitely continue recommending him to friends and family.
