Mike Slukka is the man!!!
I was facing some pretty serious charges, won't go into specifics on that but a good friend of mine who hired him for his cases recommended Mike Slukka, to which I considered and glad I did. He had my charges brought down to misdemeanors. Money well spent. Too bad he is retired..God bless him

Great lawyer
He got me out of serving time on a burglary case. Very professional but explained things that weren't clear as well. Very smart lawyer and I do recommend his services to anyone.

Awesome lawyer!
The motor vehicles wanted to suspend me for 3 years and I hired Michael to fight it and I ended up with NO Suspension at all! I drive for a living and he saved my job! He is also a great person and very kind!

Michael delivers what he promised
I hired Michael for two cases and he delivered above and beyond what he promised. He also referred me to another great attorney. I strongly recommend him.

AWESOME LAWYER AND STAFF
Mike and his secretary Mileen, were AWESOME. Mike was able to help my son who has being charged with a serious offense. He helped and fought for my son giving me not only hope but joy that I chose him as our lawyer. With his help and guidance my sons charges were downgraded and my son was able to get a second chance, a chance I don't believe would be possible if Mike didn't give his all as a Determined and Fearless Lawyer. He did a GREAT Job and I RECOMMEND Mike and his staff.

MICHAEL SLUKA, THE MOST PROFESSIONAL LAWYER IN THE LAW BUSINESS
Mike Sulka is the kindest, most sincere, down to earth lawyer I have ever worked with. He listens to your problems and addresses the situation in a professional manner. He is on top of every issue involving the case. If he does not know the answer he does the research and comes up with a plan. I give him my highest recommendation

Amazing!
Michael Sluka handeled a traffic matter for my step father who was in jeopardy of receiving points on his license. Mr. Sluka was able to get the ticket reduced with no points. His service was Amazing! Down to earth guy really looking out for the interest of people, not like the other guys who just want a check at the end of the day. I would highly recommend using Mr. Sluka for any Municipal Court matter.

A Savy and Dependable Attorney
Mr. Sluka did a tremendous job in helping my wife and I to avoid pending felony and misdemeanor charges against us. He got the felony charges dismissed via Grand Jury testimony and then negotiated very favorable terms to avoid the time and costs of a municipal trial. This is the second time I have retained the services of Mr. Sluka and he has never let me down. Very smart - savy negotiator - trustworthy - and a nice guy.
