Great Man
Recently, my family had to retain Mr. Mohun to represent my Son on a felony criminal charge in which my Son was innocent. Not an easy job when everyone had my Son convicted before the ink on the ticket was dry. Thanks to Mr. Mohun's legal knowledge and quick action, we got the news two days ago that all of the charges against my Son have been dropped and charges filed against the "real criminal". On top of Mr. Mohun's knowledge and skills as a remarkable criminal defense attorney, he is a compassionate and caring man. He put my family's hearts and minds at peace through this entire process. We knew we were in great hands. We cannot thank him enough!

The BEST assistance I could have asked for! Worth every penny!
Mike and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with during my difficult times. Everything was explained thoroughly to me every step of the way which gave me piece of mind that otherwise I would not have had all the way from the consultation to the end result. I couldn't be happier with my decision to work with Mike and would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance. In my case, it was the work that Mike did on his own time that really helped us get the results we wanted in court, filing motions, scheduling appointments, sending me copies of all available information etc. Mike made sure that my family and I were comfortable and informed and receiving all of the right opportunities that we could along the way. Mike and his team are TOP NOTCH professionals, if ever I had a question or uncertainty a quick phone call to the office gave me all the insight I needed to relax and feel confident. Worth every penny and then some! Thanks Mike!

AUO 2nd
Michael Mohun is not only a great attorney but an extremely kind man. I am 23 living on my own away from my family and with absolutely no help financially. I work full time and have been trying for years to repair my horrible driving record. Of course to do that requires payment of fines and fees which I have to work to pay for so it's almost impossible to not drive. As soon as I would get close to regaining my licence I would slip up and get slapped with a whole bunch of tickets thus starting over again. I was charged with aggravated unlicensed operator in the second degree (AUO 2nd) and a speeding ticket and was denied a puplic defender because my income is too high (apparently they don't take into consideration expenses other than the extremely bare basics). I googled attourneys in the area and called the first one I saw which happened to be mr. Mohun and i told him my story. He understood my situation and offered to take my case with no charge. We spoke a few times on the phone and he was very nice and didn't seem any less helpful because he was taking my case for free. We met at court where the DA originally wanted 30 days in jail for the AUO 2nd and the speeding reduced to illegal parking with fines for both but mike got it reduced to a non misdemeanor driving with out a licence and illegal parking with my fines only totalling something like $425. I am now waiting to see if I'm approved to get my licence back and I owe it all to mike! Sometimes it just takes one person to cut you a break for things to start getting better.

DWI Defense
Did a great job continuing to work on getting my sentence reduced between my original guilty plea and sentencing. Has excellent understanding of my jurisdiction's court process. Bottom line, he kept working on my behalf until the very last day. Great result.

Michael Mohun- An Criminal Law Expert and Pioneer
I hold Attorney Michael Mohun at high esteem and regard. My story and case were unique in nature; circumstances that only Mr. Mohun could handle. His expertise in criminal law, specifically DWI practice, is unmatched. The moment I walked into Mike's office, I knew I found the right guy to defend me. He treated me with kindness and welcomed me with open arms. He fearlessly defended me like I was his own son. Mr.Mohun went to war for me and due to his unabashed efforts, the entirety of my case was dismissed and the charges were dropped. I cannot thank Mike enough and nothing gives me more satisfaction than to write this review and recommend Mike Mohun to any and all of my friends should they find themselves in a bind. Thanks again Mike!
