Michael is a diligent, detailed-oriented, and likable guy. He managed to get my class A misdemeanor reduced to a six-month ACD. With his relationship with the district attorney and judge, his reputation was able to shed some light on my case. If I were you, I'd make Michael my go-to lawyer. 100% satisfied.

I was a first time tourist in the area, and got an speeding ticket.
After several e mails and phone calls with another lawyers, I found very good reviews about Michael and after only one phone call, I hired him. A very reasonable fee, Easy explanations, prompt response, and the $ 1000 or more ( If I wouldn t hire him ) ending in only $ 250 and no points!!!!!

I am always thankful to him. As he his so humble, down to earth and very economical as well. He never demands for his pay also. I would rate him as 10/10 the way he as approached my two tickets. In short and sweet guys.......Please try to go for Mike instead of wasting your money with big lawyer i don't how much they would be able to help but as per my personal experience Mr.Mike is best and he knows how to approach the cases. thank you so much Mike for all the help.
