I consulted with Michael Clayton after I settled with an insurance company regarding a not my fault car accident. He was very helpful and explained it would be better to do the final settlement after all medical related costs are incurred or identified. The property damage claim to repair damages to my car can be settled separately, which I did, I should have waited to settle the medical related claim. Michael Clayton is an excellent Attorney, who I recommend to anyone in need for expert legal advice or representation. Michael also has exemplary People Skills...hard to find these days. Use him you will not be disappointed. Sincerely, Gerry
Michael and his associates will speak to you with the truth from the very beggining . I had a total of 6 speeding tickets, and 4 tickets driving with a suspended license. I was sentenced to 120 days in jail prior to talking with this law firm , they re opened my case, walked with me step by step and didn't see one day in jail! I am very happy with Michael and his firm and i can assure that you will too!

Life changer… I was alone and scared in a court room for the first time facing felony charges. I did not have an attorney as I thought I couldn’t afford one. There it was I observed Mr. Clayton charismatically interacting with his clients, DA, and the Judge. He impressively was able to collaborate with all sides and I knew he was the guy I needed on my side. I reached out to his office; his staff got me in right away and after the meeting with Mr. Clayton, I felt something I hadn't in a long time, peace. Mr. Clayton worked out a payment plan for me, advised all the pro's and con's and kept me up to date with the status at all times. Most importantly Mr. Clayton always treated me as a person, not a criminal. He never made me feel less because of my wrong doing and he consistently fought as hard as he could for the best outcome. I will continue to recommend Mr. Clayton to my friends and family and he will always be the first I seek counsel from. Thank you Mr. Clayton!

Told us upfront of what to expect, what he thought he could do for us regarding the situation and what costs would be associated. Most importantly, he made it happen. He & his team was readily available by email &/or phone when needed and he was always very clear in the communication process. He went above and beyond. Would recommend his services to others and use him again to represent us if needed. Thank you!

At 19 years old, I relocated to Santa Maria,CA from Colorado and was looking for a part time position in a law firm. I had an interest in studying to be a lawyer and pursued an up close experience. I visited many law firms, but in every occasion could not get myself past the receptionist. When I walked into Mr. Clayton's office I was seen by him fairly quickly. Although Mr. Clayton was not able to offer me a position, he spent at least an hour with me giving me advice and explaining his lawyer experience. When was the last time any person got to receive an hour of legal advice for free?!
In a time when the populace has a blemished view of the lawyer profession, Mr. Clayton stands out as an outlier of being an authentic and caring individual. I also know that Mr. Clayton looks after his community. He allowed my father and I to volunteer for Veteran's Day when he would rent the local Veteran's Hall and offer a free plate of piping hot Santa Maria BBQ to the community!
Mr. Clayton knows the time tested truth that a person reaps what he sows. He has sowed hard work and humility, may he reap all the benefits that always come to a man of such actions.

Michael Clayton helped me tremendously throughout the entire case. He was always willing to listen and took time to review and study my case. I was very happy to see him so willing to defend me. He told me from the beginning he was certain I would be found not guilty. He is always easy to contact and he really boosted my confidence when I felt overwhelmed. Once I hired him the court case sped up quickly and finally I started to see a lot of progress. At the end of the trial I finally got to hear the words “Not Guilty”. It was a HUGE sense of relief and I am very impressed with how I was represented!
