This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Master of his craft.
i was arrested and hired an attorney because i thought it would all get dismissed within a few months, little did i know the lawyer i had didn't have my best interest at heart. i sought after Michael by looking at his past body of work and how experienced he was in my type of case. within the first 2 weeks i had more information about my case then i had the whole 8 months before. Michael and his partners are head and shoulders above my prior attorney and he is the reason i can sleep soundly at night. i would recommend him to anyone that needs a very experienced attorney.
