This guy is awesome and he knows what he’s doing!!
Went to Mr. Michael due to a ticket that I received down south and you know how down there they don’t play any games. Going with the flow of traffic but pulling cars over down south is like throwing bait and catching fish. Mr. Michael handled my ticket in a very professional and timely matter.

Great at what he Do!!
Peter did a awesome job. Hired him for a speeding ticket which was FOUR POINT. Got it down played to no points and I only had to pay a $57 fine. Now that's what I'm talking about. Money well spent.

5 out of 5
I hired Peter Michael to represent me on a supreme court matter and I do not regret my decision. He took the stress away from the situation and always kept me informed on what was happening and what would be the next step. He was very respectful and professional with how he handles his cases. Thanks to his help I got a full dismissal of everything I was being accused of. I would highly reccommend Peter Michael and the whole firm Beralo & Michael, LLC. Thanks for everything guys!

Excellent Lawyer for Real Estate
I hired Peter Michael to represent me in a real estate transaction. He guided my family through our very first home purchase successfully. He was very committed to our case and he responded quickly to any questions and concerns I brought up. He took care of any challenges that came up in our case with ease. I greatly appreciate his service for my family and I would highly recommend him for any real estate transactions!

Brilliant Lawyer
I hired Peter Michael to help my cousin’s legal situation. He demonstrated great knowledge on how the matter could be taken care of and was honest on what were the possible outcomes. Throughout the process he was exceptionally attentive and informative by answering any questions we had during the process and keeping us updated with everything that was going on. In the end he obtained a better than anticipated outcome for my cousin. My family and I greatly appreciate the service he has provided us. Without hesitation I highly recommend Peter Michael.

Highly Recommended Lawyer
Peter Michael has been an amazing help to me. I have had many legal questions that he professionally answered & aided me with. He is a stand up guy and one hell of a lawyer. I wouldn’t choose anybody else to be my lawyer next time I’m in need of one.

Highly Qualified Professional Lawyer
I hired peter Michael to take care of a court matter for me. He was more than helpful and had everything lined up by for me by the time I showed up so I didn’t have to worry about anything and even the judge pointed out that he did a great job negotiating with the prosecutor. Would highly recommend him
