Michael is the best lawyer i've ever hired hands down. I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of legal representation. He is knowledgeable, professional and personable. Thank you Michael, I will always be grateful for what you did to get me through a very difficult time in my life.

I almost died in a car accident back in 2002 when my friend fell asleep behind the wheel and ran into a tree. My family hired Michael Dreishpoon's old law firm to represent me. When Michael started his own firm in 2003, I switched to his firm because I wanted him to be my attorney. He always made me feel comfortable and kept me informed of all of the case details. After nearly 5 years of litigation, he settled my case prior to trial for $3,200,000. Needless to say, I was very pleased with the job he did.

Attorney Dreishpoon is a credit to the profession! He is responsive, knowledgeable and dedicated to his clients. I have referred clients to him and consulted him on my own clients' cases--each time with excellent results. I highly endorse him.
Jeffrey Zimel, Criminal defense Attorney
I have known Mr "Spoon" since college. He possesses all of the character traits of an exceptional attorney - smart, caring, persuasive, and dependable. He is uncommonly accessible to his clients and communicates with them in a straightforward manner. I am a criminal defense attorney in California and am impressed by Mr Dreishpoon's commitment to his clients. I enthusiastically endorse this lawyer's work.
