Non-Arrogant , Well Educated , Intellgent Attorney...
I Received A Speeding Ticket Entering The Southern State Parkway In Central Islip .... The Entrance Ramp Is Not That Long & U Need To Accelerate Rather Quickly As To Not Be A Hazzard To On Coming Traffic , That Is Traveling @ 65 Miles An Hour .... The Trooper Pulled Me Over After I Traveled Only A 1/4 Mile Or So On The Parkway... I Tried To Explain Why I Was Traveling Above The Speed Limit , Upon Entering The Parkway, To No Avail.... I Hired Michael Brown & He Had My Speeding Ticket Reduced To A Parking Ticket .... No Poi ts Went On My License, & My Insurance Did Not Go Up ( Which Both Would Of Occurred If The Speeding Ticket Wasn't Reduced To Parking ) ...

Excellent Attorney!
I consulted Michael Brown for a personal matter and because of his professionalism and determination, he was able to reduce my charge to a minimum. I was extremely happy with the legal help he has provided and would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking an attorney! He is honest, confident, experienced and very well respected among his peers in the "legal community".

Honest, Forthright and Strong
My college aged son, never in trouble before, who lived at home, made a mistake in judgement. The was no property damage, nobody was injured and no drugs, alcohol or theft were involved. Instead my boy was clearly a victim of entrapment by 2 over jealous Suffolk Detectives looking for a quick and easy conviction. They coerced him, refused to let him call me until he signed a confession, and threatened he would spend at least a night in jail if he didn't obey. When we met Mr Brown, he promised he would not let the system or anyone in it bully my son any more and he would get the charges reduced to a minor misdemeanor, which he did. Mr Brown is a strong, experienced, well introduced attorney who keeps to his word. He saved my son's career, which is now budding and by doing so, he saved my son's life. If you need an intelligent, experienced tough guy lawyer.... you need Michael J. Brown.

The BEST!!!
Mr.Brown represented my son on a DWI. We were clueless how the system worked. He was patient and responsive. He is a master in the courtroom and hit it out of the park for my son!!

I consulted with mike regarding a matter for a family member, He was professional, very confident and put myself and my family at ease that the case would be handled and that the outcome would be positive, not to worry. Mike was true to his word and clearly is a master at his craft. I would highly recommend him if you are in need of an attorney.

Michael knows his business! He explores all avenues of the law. He got a very serious charge of mine reduced to a misdemeanor. Look no further for legal representation. Michael has the knowledge and the expertise to get you the best possible outcome in court.

Thief in a suit
Took $35K to babysit my case for 2 months until the Feds took it over. He kept telling us he was getting our case dismissed but it was only dismissed because of the federal indictment. He knows very little and nothing about federal law. Ripoff!
