Michael Fell recently represented me for the third time as a victim rights attn. He has represented me through two Parole Hearings for the inmate who murdered my family in 1977. He had prepared for a third and forth hearing, but for one, the inmate was able to cancel the hearing at the last minute (I'm sure as a game to have a hearing without me present). The fourth hearing he prepared for was for the other inmate involved in the crime; that hearing was cancelled just two weeks prior, when the inmate died. I could not imagine going through the parole hearing process without Mike by my side. He helped make the parole hearing process much easier. He made sure my Marsy's Law rights as a victim were upheld. He is knowledgeable, caring and basically amazing. He helped me get a 7 year denial. I will be hiring him for every future parole hearing!
And once again the day is saved thanks to Mr. Fell!! Here is a Super Hero in deed... With an ever kind character :)
Mr. Fell has inspired me to follow his path... As the role model he is: I would like to grow up and be just like him!!
Such a powerful attorney! I highly recommend mr. Fell and believe me, he has raised the bar way tooo high to be outdone by someone else!!!
I contacted Attorney Michael Fell out of desperation. My only child was murdered in 2009, and my victims rights under Marsy's Law had been violated. Michael was truly the voice that I needed to hear to put things into perspective. I can't say enough about his integrity, his effective listening skills, and his vast knowledge of Victims Rights Law. Michael was very approachable, he exemplified absolute compassion and professionalism. He is very committed to the rights of victims. In our society today it is extremely difficult to find individuals who sincerely care about "Real" justice, well I found him. It was like looking for the perfect soul-mate in the legal profession, and Michael L. Fell is it , without a doubt. I especially value his opinion, he offered me legal advise that has moved my daughters case into a totally workable direction, and for that I am eternally grateful to him. Michael is truly an awe-inspiring person, and I am deeply thankful to him!
I cannot say enough about Michael Fell. After speaking to him for the first time, I knew that Michael was very special. He was warm, understanding and not judgmental. Most people are motivated by money but not Michael. Michael's main concern was my welfare and gave 110% effort to resolve my legal matter. When the retainer I paid him ran out, Michael continued to resolve my legal matter. Michael is not only a brilliant lawyer but also a compassionate, and kind hearted man. His attention to my needs and concerns touched my heart. I am very grateful to have had Michael by my side representing my interests. In negotiating a settlement agreement, Michael proved to be very knowledgeable, personable, and above all, possessed excellent negotiation skills. Michael is truly an amazing person. I highly recommend Michael not only because of his knowledge and experience with criminal matters but most especially he is a genuinely nice person.
After being charged with something petty, this was the first time it had ever happened to me, NEVER in a million years did I think I would be having to worry about contacting a lawyer, but things happen and I so
I did. I didn't know where to start or who to go to, but I started doing some research before my court date that way I knew what to expect. I came across this website and after reviewing all the lawyers I made my mind up and called Michael. Let me tell you, he lifted so much weight off of my shoulders, I felt like I could finally sleep through the night. This was the first time I had ever got in trouble with anything and after being emotional on the phone he was so reassuring and so quick to help me out, he was compassionate and I can tell how much he wanted to help me. Although it was over the phone, and we were very distant from each other, he was such a great help, I was hoping to go meet him but court was coming so soon that that was not an option. He event old me to call him after all of my court dates so he can keep up with my case, and let me know if there's anything he can do for me. I told Mr.Fell I wanted to pay him he denied, so I asked him to please let me send him at least a gift card for all the effort and time he put in talking to me because even when he was busy, he promised he would call back and he did, but again he denied and said that was not necessary. I would recommend Michael to anybody seeking criminal help. Thank you so much.

Needing to consult with a criminal attorney is the last thing I ever wanted to do and the last thing I thought I would ever need to do. I was faced with a sensitive matter and was worried sick about my legal position. I came across Michael from this website. Naturally, I was apprehensive to trust a stranger, but I had no alternative so I contacted Michael's office. He was able to meet with me within a day for an after-hours consultation. Was very impressed with that responsiveness. Within a few minutes of meeting Michael, my apprehensions were dissolved. What struck me is he is very professional, yet very compassionate. We carefully walked through the facts of my situation, and then he gave me a very thoughtful legal - and practical - analysis. By the end of our 45 minute meeting, all of my uncertainty was gone and I had felt a dark cloud had been lifted. His consultation with me was invaluable, yet he refused payment. If you are seeking a knowlegeable, passionate, and wise criminal attorney, you do not need to go any further than Michael Fell.
Being charge with a crime is terrifying. I never dreamed I would EVER be facing criminal prosecution. I found THE BEST in Michael Fell. Mike has the criminal defense experience, is familiar with the DA and the judges, and he has the earned reputation of being a forthright, honest, and strong litigator. Mike is Known and respected by all members of the court. Your future depends on Mike's unparalleled ability and talent to successfully litigate on your behalf. After my first meeting with Mike I felt so relieved and relaxed. He was patient, non judgmental, and very understanding of the personal issues that affected the very serious criminal charges I faced. Mike and his team worked tirelessly, always kept me informed about the progress of my case, and in the end, Mike GOT MY CASE DISMISSED! Thank you Mike Fell for your guidance, professionalism, your kindness and honesty, and mostly for your moral support. You are a good and noble man. Look no further as you could never find a better attorney to represent your case than Michael L Fell.
I was a complete emotional wreck when I first met with Michael Fell and Denise Grimes, but they instantly made me feel rest assured that I had made the right decision in contacting them to represent me. I just knew they had my best interest at heart and were willing to fight for me to get the best outcome possible. They are genuinely nice people and they treated me like a person, not just a case. They were also always available for any questions or concerns I had, which was quite often. Denise ultimately was the one who handled my case and I could not be happier with the outcome. I had some pretty serious charges, was facing jail time and she was able to get my case dismissed. I am so thankful for her help. If all attorneys were like Michael and Denise the typical stereotype of lawyers would not exist. If you are reading this you are probably feeling like I did before I chose an attorney and I can honestly tell you that hiring them was the best decision I made in a horrible situation and you will not be sorry you did.
I was falsely accused of a crime and Mike got me out of a jam in the blink of a eye. He's a really honest lawyer.
