I never thought in a million years that I would need a lawyer to defend me. But when that day recently came after someone alleged that I had committed a serious crime against them, I was in a panic. I was scared to death that I was about to go to jail and lose everything I had. I reached out to Mr. Scafiddi and he consistently and professionally reassured me he would do everything he could to defend me. That was an understatement! Mr. Scafiddi made me feel as though I was the only client he had. His quick and dedicated work got my case rejected by the District Attorney's office. If you ever find yourself in need of legal representation look no further than Michael Scafiddi. He truly is the best!
This is the best attorney and firm on the planet. He and his firm went above and beyond to help solve my case and naturally we won. Thank you so much for your expertise and compassion in solving this case.
I absolutely thank God for Michael A. Scafiddis life. I had multiple felony charges against me and I was suppose to do 5 years in state prison. But Mr. Scafiddi with his powerful work ethics, got me out of jail with a Misdemeanor. Any other attorney would have not done what he did. I am super blessed to have had him as my Attorney. He gave me my FREEDOM back and he will also give you yours.
I could not be anymore thankful for his work in my case. He was with me every step of the way. With his work on my case, I feel like my mistakes have been erase and he has given me the chance to repent and start a new life. It was a long battle, but thankfully he kept me out of jail and showed me that my life is not worth my mistakes. I am now able to take the stress that I have put on myself and create a new chapter. He is an amazing lawyer, great personality, and very welcoming. The first day I met him, he had already had high hopes and believed that I am a great individual and told me that my mistakes should not define who I am. He took my case happily and gave me the best possible solution to my problem. I am very happy how my case turned out. I would recommend him very greatly to any person that has been in trouble by the county of San Bernardino. I owe him a great debt of gratitude.
From the first call to Mikes' office till today. We consider Mike a friend of our family because of his dedication, experience and friendly professionalism who took a personal interest in our DUI case at the Rancho Cucamonga Court. Mike made himself available to us anytime. We had several in-depth meetings with him and his legal staff developing a legal strategy for the case. Mike and his staff took a personal interest and learned more about our family than anyone I have met. He truly became part of our family and made the criminal process so easy to understand and go through. Mike was with us every step of the way proving guidance and support. Extensive court dates made the judicial process daunting, exhausting and stressful for me and my family. Mike made this so much more tolerable with his friendly and joyful personality. I didn't mind being in court because I knew Mike would be there with us. Mike is truly down to earth and he and his staff has helped our family through a very difficult time. Mike was successful in getting the DUI dropped down to a dry reckless. We don't know what we would have done without Mike. We greatly appreciate the personal interest and time (14+ court dates, 6+meetings) Mike dedicated to us in order to obtain a successful resolution. I know no other lawyer would have taken this much interest/personal time in a DUI case. Mike you are like a BROTHER to me and my family. Mike you have a special place with me and my family. THANK YOU very much for what you and your team has done. I would recommend you to anyone who has any court case pending.
When my good friend was arrested on numerous felonies. There was only one person that came to mind for the family to call. From the very first phone call Michael and his staff were on the case. First to line up a bail bondsman. Then sending out his own investigating team. He started that same day to get the bail reduced.. With the hard work of Michael and his team. The had the bail reduced from $1.2 m to $100,000. When she was released Michael meet with her and started to put together the case. Within days Michael obtained evidence that the charges were all false and the two victims made up and were pressured into making false claims. After presenting the new evidence to the DA and the courts. All charges were dropped. I want to thank Michael and his super staff of highly qualified people. Without everyone that was involved my friend would have had a totally different outcome. I highly recommend to anyone to have Michael Scafiddi on your side.
Excellent attorney who helped my friend in the past and now unfortunately is helping me get through my own situation. Very friendly and helpful, would recommend to anyone.
In August of this year (2014), I was pulled over and blew just above an .08. I had a meeting with another attorney, prior to meeting with Mr. Scafiddi, and just did not have a good "gut" feeling about my initial attorney. From the moment I called Mr. Scafiddi's office, I new he was the right fit. The level of professionalism displayed by him, and everyone in his office, settled all of my nerves, and calmed my anxiety about all of the unknowns of my first "run-in" with the law. Throughout the process, Mr. Scafiddi and his staff kept me more than informed, and guided me through the process every step of the way. Mr. Scafiddi himself, was extremely responsive to all of my phone calls and emails, and more often than not, he called me before I called him. His knowledge of the DUI process, is next to none, and is matched by his work ethic and passion for his clients.
In the end, Mr. Scafiddi and his staff were able to get my DUI charge down to two infractions and a minimal fine. I honestly could not have scripted a better outcome to what was one of my biggest nightmares. I would DEFINITELY recommend Mr. Scafiddi to anyone who needs help with a DUI case. His experience and familiarity with the law and the court system speak for themselves, and his trustworthiness is through the roof. I cannot thank Mr. Scafiddi, and his staff, enough for all of their handwork and attention to my case. Mr. Scafiddi literally saved my career.
Almost two years ago, after being arrested and charged with DUI in Ontario, I did my homework in a quest to find the best legal representation possible. I was determined to fight the charges, and knew that I wanted to hire someone with the experience and resources to give me the best possible chance to prevail. Fortunately, I made the decision to retain the services of the Law Offices of Michael A. Scafiddi.
While many other reviewers here have already attested to Mr. Scafiddi's outstanding skills as an attorney, I think it's equally important to understand how good this firm really is. Mike and the other attorneys and staff are extremely knowledgeable and professional and are easy to work with. These are really good, smart, nice people. This helps alot when you are facing such as stressful situation. And while everyone's case is different and there is never any guarantee of outcomes, I believe the strength and experience of these people put you in a position to be able to have the best possible outcome.
In my own case, the results speak for themselves. Six months ago, we won the DMV hearing. A week ago, just prior to trial, the DUI charge was dropped in exchange for a dry reckless plea.
I would highly recommend The Law Offices of Michael Scaffidi to anyone facing any kind of DUI related matter.
Mike Scafiddi is a very intelligent and a very excellent attorney. If I had a question about my case I would call him and he would respond right away. i was charged with a felony and had a high risk of going to jail. By him putting his effort and taking care of my case, he was able to reduce the felony charge and turn into a light misdemeanor and kept me out of jail. With my experience with him was a good one. He explains knows the law and is very intelligent. When I first went into his office I was nervous because when I was looking for a lawyer, I did not want someone to just tell me what I wanted to hear and take my money. So when I entered his law office I was welcomed, everyone was polite and called me by my last name. I and my family were offered Drinks and treats. I recommend Mike to everyone that needs a lawyer, he has been there for me and my family; and kept me out of jail. He is someone I can go to with advice about anything. I only known him for less than a year and is like a father figure in my life.
