This was my first experience with the court system and having to get a lawyer. Upon countless reading of reviews from other avvo users I came to the conclusion that Mr. Elrich was the right lawyer for me. Everything was smooth and straight foward throughout the process. My case went amazing and both my charges were dismissed. I would recommend Mr. Erlich to any person who needs a great lawyer in Massachusetts.

If you need representation look no further, Michael is a top notch attorney. He is experienced, knowledgeable, and confident in the courtroom. He responded quickly to any questions or concerns regarding my matter. I would highly recommend him to any friends or family in need of an attorney!

Being a recent college graduate and having never even stepped inside a courtroom prior, this whole mess felt catastrophic. Even though my case was seemingly daunting to the common sense eye, Mr. Erlich decided right away we proceed to take the case to trial. In meetings we went over police report line by line and he explained things clearly. At trial it was clear that Mr. Erlich was a man that is plain and simple good at his job. He answered my call on a weekend (arrest on a Saturday), and responded to every text within minutes. Easy to see online that he is a guy who gets results. Best possible outcome for my case. I was guilty of neg. op. but by nature of the case this was inevitable. Marked lane violation went away before trial even started and most importantly the OUI was NOT GUILTY. Mr. Erlich stayed after the trial with the judge and he signed a motion to allow me to reinstate my license. Thank you again Mr. Erlich.
