I just wanted to take the time to thank the Michael Scafiddi office for their excellent work. Scot Neudorff was the attorney that immediately handled my case in every way possible. With his aggressiveness and genuine care, he was able to successfully get me out of jail for a violation of probation. When I was arrested, Scot was there to visit me in jail to inform what was going on and to let me know everything was being taken care of. He was very detailed and transparent with everything I needed to know. Being a busy attorney, he was well organized to be able to take care of my case at the same time with others. I was suppose to be in jail during thanksgiving, my cousins wedding, and my birthday, but Scot knew justice had to be served and got me out of jail immediately to spend time with my family. He figured out that the court had made a mistake for the warrant on my arrest and soon enough I was released. I was the happiest man alive when I got out to see my family. I went to visit Scot and the staff to thank them for their great work.

Michael Scafiddi really made me appreciate everything lawyers do for their clients. His knowledge and attention to detail had a great effect on the outcome of my case. His staff was extremely helpful throughout the whole process answering any and every question i threw at them. I was facing possible DUI and Hit and Run charges that would have more than likely ended my career. After the case was dragged out for a few months the DMV hearing officer decided to dismiss the case. Mike had picked apart the arresting officers police report so much that the whole storyline lacked credibility. He ended up bringing the charges all the way down to a dry-reckless. I don't know what i would've done if it wasn't for Mr. Scafiddi and his staff. Thanks again!

There's no words to explain what Michael Scafiddi has done for me and my family. I was facing the worst possible situation that has ever happened in my life but yet he walked me through each step with such grace that I felt I could trust him with every being in my body. I made the horrible mistake by drinking and driving and I was facing a year in jail, a felony, and a strike on my record. He was able to drop the felony to a misdemeanor, no strike on my record, and six months house arrest. He made me feel as if he was fighting for his own daughter. I felt as if my life was going to be over but Michael Scafiddi changed that in so many ways possible. If one feels as if their life is in shambles I would highly recommend to go to him because I have no idea where I would be without his help. Thank you Michael again from the bottom of my heart.

Michael has been such a solid and loyal support for me and my case. He continues to show genuine care and compassion towards me, and continues to do it pro bono. This is how Michael is- a gentleman, friend, Christian, expert in his field, and just an attorney's attorney all around. He does not have a mean bone in his body. I can say with my heart that Michael believes in justice and charity, and believes in the goodness of others without bias. He stood up for me when no one else would, and helped me survive a horrible ordeal. I believe it is true that angels sometimes wear suits.

Great job in setting reasonable yet aggresive expectations, has wide ranging attorney network and investigators to ensure I had the strongest possible position before my court date. Curteous and professional staff kept my family apprised of progress, meanings of terms, and what to expect going forward. You can't go wrong with Mr. Scafiddi and his terrific staff.

I'm really glad I chose the law offices of Michael Scafiddi. They were able to reduce two possible felony convictions to one misdemeanor. This allowed me to save my career and get my life back on track. All the attorneys that were involved in my case kept me informed and were always available for questions and concerns. I would highly recommend the law offices of Michael Scafiddi in the future. Thanks again.

I have known Mr. Scafiddi (and many members of his staff) for over 13 years. Michael's generosity and charity outside of his work know no bounds. Within his law practice work, I had heard - for years - many, many clients comment about his honesty, integrity, compassion and kindness. I had seen those qualities in his charitable deeds for years, but had not experienced them as his client.
I recently found it necessary to engage his office myself for minor (although very troubling to me) traffic citations - two times in the last 18 months. Each time, Mr. Scafiddi's office took the burden, reassured me that I needn't give the matters another thought and handled them with expediency, thoroughness, confidence, and calm - and with a very positive outcome, to boot.
I know now that Mike and his talented associates and staff are there for me, for whatever I need. It eases my mind knowing that I will always have such dedicated advocates in times of trouble.

My son wanted to be a sheriff. He put something down on his application that he did as an juvenile. It was a sex offense. The sherriffs came to the house and arrested him as a adult. My son was facing 7 years. I have heard about Mike from a good friend of mine. She called him and he called me immediately. My husband and I went to see him and I will always remember what he told me. He said he will take care of my son like he was his son and he did. Mike got my son's case to be put down to juvenile and he got my son a deferred entry of judgement, which means my son's case was sealed and it looks like nothing ever happened. Mike was there from the beginning until the end, which was today in court. We will forever be grateful to this wonderful man, for what he did for our son and he is truly a part of my family forever. I would recommend this man to anyone who. wants a compassionate and caring person to represent them. He will fight for you like you were family. God bless Mike and his law firm.

Michael Scafiddi is one of the best lawyers in southern California, in my opinion. He is very knowledgeable about the law and has many years of experience in litigation, as well as trial experience. I have personally known him for twenty years. I have seen him represent friends of mine, which always results in a positive outcome for his clients. I would recommend everyone to have Michael Scafiddi represent them in their legal matters, because he is a proven winner.

My case was a source of frustration and I couldn't have turned to a better office to handle my matter for me. A lawyer was assigned to my case, but I know for a fact that Michael was a part of the process the entire time. My lawyer kept me in the loop the entire time and I know for a fact that he and Michael worked even late into the night discussing my matter. I am grateful to Scot Neudorff and Michael Scafiddi, as my case was ultimately dismissed after trial and it was because of their hard work. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone who needs a criminal or traffic defense lawyer.
