    There is no one in this State (perhaps in the country) that has more knowledge and criminal defense experience than Michael. He is a genuine and zealous advocate who always is looking out for the best interests of his clients. He commands respect not only from his peers but also from State and Federal prosecutors and judges. His trial track record in Federal and State court speak for themselves. Whenever I need advice or need to confer on a legal matter, I call Michael. He is humble, honest, has a pleasurable disposition and is very passionate when arguing his legal position. He is very creative when trying to solve a legal problem and has an uncanny ability to make prosecutors understand the flaws of their case. You would be hard pressed to find a Judge or a prosecutor that doesn't know Michael or respect him. I believe that he is pound-for-pound one of the best criminal defense attorneys in California and possibly in this country.
