Last year I tried to have my record expunged. The judge told me "I would be hard-pressed to find any judge in this country to dismiss this" and "your behavior was the epitome of criminal behavior." I was denied.
One year later, I hired Michelle Spaulding of Summit Defense. After she was done speaking with the judge, he went against the recommendation of the District Attorney and the probation department and GRANTED my expungement.
Thank you, Michelle Spaulding. Without you this would not have happened. My family and I are very grateful for what you have done for us.

I am an executive in the bay area for a fortune 500 company and have worked with many attorneys in my line of business, I then found my self needing an attorney for my child and with great luck we selected Michelle. Her expertise, professionalism and ability to explain the law and what we were facing was so refreshing. Her ability to show compassion and guidence yet battle the DA and judge for what was fair and acceptable. She was always available for questions and either answered the phone or would get right back to us. She knew her stuff and I highly recommend to her anyone in need of a good attorney that is reasonable priced and very honest and loyal. Thank you Michelle

This message is regarding the excellent legal representation with which you provided me. It is difficult to describe the uncommon competence you possess as an attorney. I have no doubt that there are few litigators who have the ability to successfully execute such a difficult legal maneuver as a 1538.5 motion to suppress. Even if the aforementioned motion had failed, the dedication, service and brilliance with which you handled my legal difficulties could not be evaluated as anything other than extraordinary. Your clients are not the only people to benefit from your keen legal skills. Summit Defense is also extremely fortunate to have you as a member of their firm. Thank you so much for you the terrific service and I wish you the best.
