Posted by OH, a Criminal Defense client,
I had to use Mrs. Michaels due to a series of unfortunate events. My former attorney got caught up in another case and was unable to represent me. She actually encouraged me to not tell the truth. She had no idea about the theories my previous attorney had about my case and didn't understand angles he was going to take. I am a pre-law student and even I understood things she didn't. She was telling me about consequences I could face, that I knew were false. I corrected her and I could tell she got angry. She was clueless and simply wanted to get the case over with at my expense. We ended up going into the court room with tension between us because I got angry that she was unwilling to do ANYTHING but make me plead guilty to something that I was not guilty of. She wouldn't accept any other outcome except me pleading guilty. No strategy whatsoever. I don't want to sound catty but I would like other people to find someone who will at least pretend to care about their well-being and not purposely try to incriminate them so they can go about their day.
