I hired this Attorney to handle my DMV matter and according to other Lawyers in the community, the results Michael produced are nothing less than impressive. I too was pleased with results.
I was faced with a refusal charge and a hard suspension for one year. After unsuccessfully working with another Attorney, I hired Michael to manage what had evolved into a catastrophe as anything DMV is regularly understood as both complex and difficult to win.
Michael provided many options on how to pursue the matter answering my long list of questions without reservation providing much needed insight for a sound decision. After our many conversations, I decided to remove the case from the DMV by filing a Writ of Mandamus to Superior Court. This is considered a costly endeavor, however, Michael provided me a price point I could live with.
Michael had presented my case in such a manner that the Attorney General's office opted not to go to a hearing and asked to settle the case. Moreover, the fees I paid were returned!
Again, my fees were returned to me by the State of California!! According to any Attorney I have shared this with, this outcome is atypical, so I am incredibly grateful..!
If you have a DUI matter, I recommend you consider Michael to represent you!!

Upon losing my license at the DMV with a totally incompetent attorney, I hired Mr. Linscheid to request a Departmental Review at the DMV. Mr. Linscheid’s request was compelling and DMV granted me another hearing. I again hired Mr. Linscheid to represent me at the DMV hearing. Although I had a good case, the DMV's hearing officer was extremely biased, and clearly had no intension of overturning her decision.
Through two lengthy hearings, numerous legal documents, and phone conversations, Mr. Linscheid - with his perseverance, expertise, and attention to detail, was able to get my license reinstated.
In addition to the DMV hearing, I had a violation of driving on a suspended license. Mr. Linsheid again successfully represented me and the charges were dropped by the District attorney.
Based on his excellent performance and compassion for his clients, I would highly recommend E. Michael Linscheid.

Barrister Michael was SO helpful in resolving a legal matter of mine. He was professional, affable, humble, and very patient (especially in answering a myriad of questions I had about my case). Michael is an attorney I would recommend to anyone without reservation. He is a credit to his profession.

From the moment I first talked with Michael on the phone I felt at ease. I looked around on the internet for a lawyer to help me with my probation violation case for days and talked with 17 different lawyers.
My case was a nightmare and could have been way more of a mess if it was handled by another. Michael efforts helped keep me out of jail/prison for a long time. He also ensured my future was protected.
He handled my case with grace.
He is supportive, he listens, he answers his phone, he goes above and beyond what is required of him.
Michael saved my life and I recommended him to another close friend in a similar situation...and he found the same results.
His ability to communicate is the far superior to other lawyers I worked with before.
Thank you Michael. It's hard to put in words how you helped me.

Michael was there for me from the start to finish. When you decide that you need to hire a professional attorney, it can be a very scary and confusing time. Mr. Linscheid calmed me down and let me know that there was a light at the end of the tunnel and we would go threw it together. It might be dark but at least there are people like Michael to help you get to the other side.

Mr Linscheid did a fantastic job resloving my case quickly and effectively. I would recommend him at the drop of my hat!
