Lifesaver!! Highly recommend!
Michelle is an angel to me! She got rid of all my 4 points from an improper passing ticket and she even reduced the court charges for me. She stuck by my side through the entire hearing and when I was stressing and worried she gave me reassurance that everything will be alright and she did her magic and I am so glad she was my lawyer. I highly recommend her, definitely hire her for any of your violations! She is the best!

Friendly and got me out of 11 points.
Michelle handled it all for me, I didn't even have to go to court (partially due to Corona virus) I went from having 11 points worth of tickets from bedminster, which is apparently the worst place to have tickets. It went down to 2 points which is far more reasonable.

Truly amazing attorney - Highly Recommend!
I honestly can't say enough good things about Michelle. I hired her to be my attorney for a cell phone violation. She was the only lawyer I spoke to that took the time to explain what I was charged with, why I was charged, and what the potential outcomes could be. She helped me understand the law around cell phone violations and exactly what it entailed, so that I would never be in this position again. She was in constant contact and updated me throughout the process. I felt fully supported every step of the way. She is an extreme "go-getter" in terms of getting the BEST outcome for her client and she fought hard for me. I fully trust her and her knowledge of the court - she's incredibly smart and driven. I can't say enough good things. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone. Thank you, Michelle!!

MICHELLE defend me when I was issued a ticket for driving closely after a accident I had in a commercial vehicle . The ticket carried 5 points that is a death sentence for anyone who holds a class A CDL Michelle got the case dismissed I highly recommend her for anyone who has been issued a summons that carries points. She will do a outstanding for you as she did for me.

All thumbs up!!!
Michelle not only has the letter-of-the-law expertise, she also has the on-the-job experience to be familiar with the various judges and their courts, and knows how to work with them. If she accepts your case she is in your corner and on your side. She makes it personal and fights for YOU! She negotiated a much better resolution to my case than I had expected or even dared hope for. She is definitely tops in her field!

You want Michelle in your corner!
Michelle jumped right in and began processing paperwork for the court hearing on my behalf - even before we were off the phone. This took an enormous weight off my shoulders immediately. She guided me through the process and the following 10 months were very stressful but much easier with her support. My charges were greatly reduced due to her and her staff's hard work. Michelle will fight for you and I highly recommend her.

Ride of the Valkyrie
Michelle is amazing. If I needed a lawyer standing before Satan in hell I would choose Michelle without a doubt. From the moment I met her I knew I made the right choice. She is very knowledgeable, and fights endlessly for her clients. She is upfront and doesn't scam you for money like lawyers can. I was at her mercy but she didn't take advantage of me. She is queen of the courtroom and I will choose her everytime. I highly recommend her.

Best service I’ve ever had. Highly recommend
Hired Michelle for some traffic and criminal cases. Michelle was excellent with her communication and how she treated me. Her results and level of confidence were better then any lawyered I’ve ever dealt with. I live in FL and she represented me for a NJ case and I didn’t even have to show up to court and everything she said was on point. Thanks Michelle

I would highly recommend anybody looking for a criminal defense lawyer to see Michelle, she was amazing help to me! I called her on the day of my situation and she was available to see me immediately! She was very thorough and covered all areas on my matter, after leaving her office she made me feel really confident, and put me at ease. Very professional, I can’t thank her enough for what she has done for me.

THE BEST!!!! DEFINITELY, HIRE HER!!!
Michelle handled a Traffic Ticket I got while driving south from Maine heading to Virginia. I was so frustrated when I realized I would have to go to court, because it was 250 miles each way and I had other obligations on the date it was scheduled. I was so relieved when I spoke to her, and she was extremely pleasant and professional! It was the most competitive flat-rate fee that she charged for the service, and she heard my circumstance and advocated on my behalf. Ultimately, I paid a very small fee associated with the court costs, and I could not be more grateful for her help! Thank you so much Michelle, you are AWESOME!!

Excellent Attorney
Attorney Michelle Welsh was a great attorney to hire for me. I was charged with possession of marijuana as well as drug paraphernalia. Ms. Welsh got both of the charges dismissed. She worked hard throughout the case, and kept me informed on every move she was making. I am very grateful I hired her, and would highly recommend.

The best experience I could have asked
Michelle is not only a wonderful lawyer but a wonderful person. I found myself in serious trouble but through her guidance, we were able to get through it. Every text and phone call were immediately answered. I wouldn't choose anyone else to represent me in court.

True to her words
Michelle is really good at following up on anything you ask and true to her words. She got me the settlement I asked for, walked me through the entire process, and ensured it was a smooth process. I would hire her again - hopefully i won't need to though :)

Michelle Welsh is the lawyer you're looking for
Michelle is an excellent, caring lawyer who takes everything into consideration for the best possible outcome. She kept me in the loop through every step of the process and broke things down in a way that made me fully aware of the situation at hand, at all times. Through Michelle's hard work and relentlessness, I was cleared of all charges made against me- Thank you Michelle!
