Bankruptcy
Earlier this year I fell on hard time in terms of debt, I was trying to pay it off and refused to give up. Unfortunately due to personal issues I started to accrue more debt that I could not longer handle. My friend recommended Michael for a consultation and to look at my options. I was scared because I always had a good credit score now I was way over my head and my credit started to drop. I finally called Michael for a consultation, speaking briefly to him I did retain for Chap 9 Bankruptcy. I was overwhelmed with questions on top of questions where I did not know how to start. Only response I got from Michael was, it's ok I got you covered, I will send you some stuff and we will go step by step from there. Everything else was a breeze, If I ever had questions Michael would answer almost immediately, if he did not answer me, he would call me back or text me answering any question that I had for him in a timely fashion. My overall experience was great, I was guided to help my case go smoothly and most importantly I was put at ease.

Highly recommend
I hired Mayya and Michael to represent my family member on two extremely difficult legal cases and their service was beyond of outstanding level - attentive to the point, always giving phone calls back with information and answers and process status of the cases. Their commitment, dedication and high level competence were beyond my expectation. I could not be more satisfied with their representation and would recommend anyone seeking legal help.

Always honest and humble. Highly recommend.
Mike has been my lawyer for many years and i can not say enough good things about him. He has helped me with numerous situations over the years. No matter how big or small the issue is, Mike always gives it his all. He is honest and gives a 360 view of the issue at hand. While Mike is very knowledgeable in a variety of areas, he is also humble enough to get other experts involved if he thinks it is good for his clients.

Mr. Michael Byk, doing his job right and professionally!
I’ve been consulting with lawyer M. Byk. He explained to us all the sides of our case. After the consultation we realized we could make bankruptcy in a difficult time for us. Our lawyer Mr. Byk helped for me and my family to get out of form of psychological fear of bankruptcy! I am grateful for lawyer Mr. Michael Byk for care about me, with clear professional communication and excellent work! I am recommending to hire Mr. Byk

The best attorney you need when legal help becomes critical
After my 5 cars pile up accident on Verrazano Bridge Michael stepped in as a legal worrier and shielded me from all subsequent hassles. He allowed me go on with my life and only bothered when necessary. I felt secured and comfortable until the very end when he announced the case outcome was in my favor and surprised me with the compensation amount. I now have him on my speed dial and he will be the first person I call when I need legal help. I will wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone in a need for a professional and yet aggressive attorney that gets things done.

Fully Satisfied!
I have been working with Michael for about a year after my accident happened. Throughout the whole time he was very helpful and patient with me. Not only he explained in details all steps that we would take, he also addressed all my concerns. Most importantly he was very easy to reach out to whether it was via phone or an email. I would get a response right away without waiting for days. It was a great experience working with him, not only was he professional at all times, he also was very pleasant. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family. Thank You Michael so much for the hard work and all your help.

The most caring and professional lawyer out there!
I called Michael, due to amazing reviews, hoping he would take on my case after I had the worst experience with my original lawyer. I came to Michael, skeptical of lawyers and their intentions, however Michael reassured me that there are lawyers out there that genuinely do care about you and your case through actions. He took care of everything and made me feel safe after my accident. I never had to worry about a single thing because everything was always taken care of for me. Michael met with me regularly and always kept me up to date. I was always free to call him and discuss whatever it was that I had on my mind. He always listened and gave me the best advice. He took on my case, which was not handled professionally to begin with, and set everything straight, the way it should have been from the start. The best advice I could give someone is to do some research prior to hiring a lawyer, because if I did that to begin with I would've picked Michael as my first choice and would have saved my case from being originally messed up. Michel is, hands down, the best lawyer you will be able to find if you are looking for someone that cares, that is professional and amazing at what he does, and that will provide you with great communication regarding your case. If you choose Michael, you will not regret is, I assure you!

Truly an amazing trial lawyer. Very careful, calm, and collected. Pays great attention to detail.
Michael Byk is an amazing trial lawyer who handled my case with precision and great attention to all of the minor details. I was involved in an auto accident and it was very hard to determine which car was at fault. As a result of the accident, I had a left knee surgery and lost substantial wages from lost work. Attorney Michael Byk treated me with the utmost professionalism and didn't allow me to worry at all when the case could not be resolved and a trial would be necessary. Michael was very well prepared and fought greatly; in the end, the jury found in my favor, and i was given a substantial settlement to compensate me for my lost wages as well as my injured knee. Michael kept me informed and relaxed throughout the entire ordeal. Thanks again Michael, you are the best.......

5 star attorney
I would like to share my experience with Michael Byk. I was provided detail information and excellent legal advise. My attorney worked very closely on my case with me and explained every aspect of my case and every scenario. Furthermore worked with me on my payment plan and replied to every email txt and question i had. I would recommend Mr. Byk as a excellent attorney and a very reliable and patient and discrete person and i did recommend him to my family members who where left with a pleasant and excellent experience after getting his legal advice. I think that Mr. Byk takes all of his cases very personally and invest his time and accuracy into each case and I have not seen that with other attorneys that I have used before hiring Mr. Byk. Thank you for your excellent service .
