Much more than just an incredible attorney.
After having a lapse of good judgement and making the decision to drive after a few beers, I was pulled over in a small town for crossing the fog line. While crossing the fog line isn't actually a violation, it's something you can get pulled over for on pretext, and if you've been drinking, it goes down hill from there VERY quickly. At any rate, I was charged with DWI, barely drunk by the numbers, but nevertheless, drunk by the numbers at .10 BAC. I was put in contact with Mr. Seibert who not only wanted to know the facts of my case, but my "story" as well. I've been driving on the road for some 43 years with only 1 speeding ticket on my record from when I was 20. Mr. Seibert knew he wasn't representing a career drunk driver, but rather a guy who made an error in judgement on one January evening. During my first consultation, Mr. Seibert asked me to tell my side of the story which I did. He put me at ease, not with false promises, but with the assurance that he would do everything he could to limit the damage to my record. Subsequently, the paperwork from my arrest arrived on his desk and the "stories" were very similar. I wasn't speeding, didn't hit anything or anyone, in fact, I truly believed I wasn't drunk. I had been driving for 20 minutes and felt fine. The police obviously disagreed. At any rate, I asked Mr. Seibert to fight my case as opposed to taking the plea deal offered by the district attorney. While I could have been driving MUCH sooner by taking the plea, I still would have had it on my record as well as had no access to Canada without going through an extended and expensive process. Not to mention higher insurance premiums for God knows how long. My case went on for 9 months being that it was a small town court where the DA only rides through once a month, and we had a couple of unforeseen delays too. Moral of the story... if you've been drinking, DON'T drive. And if you make the mistake of driving after a few drinks and get pulled over, contact Mr. Seibert. There are no miracle cures for having a lapse of judgement, but I assure you Mr. Seibert will explore every avenue available to limit the damage done. In my case, I was lucky for two things. One was having Mr. Seibert representing me, the other was having been stopped using questionable "probable cause". Mr. Seibert was able to show that the stop was unconstitutional which resulted in the suppression of any evidence gained after the stop. And without evidence, the prosecution cannot proceed. I hope I NEVER need criminal defense services again, but if I do, Mr. Seibert is the attorney I would call. You don't just get an incredible attorney when you hire Mr. Seibert, you also get a kind, compassionate, and very knowledgeable advocate and dare I say, friend.

Best Possible Results!
Working with Michael Seibert, I realized he was the best person to handle my unfortunate legal matter. His knowledge, confidence, and expertise along with the support of a very experienced legal team made all the difference in the outcome of my case. We had a number of challenges to overcome and this is where Mike and his team really came through! I couldn't agree more with all the other positive reviews. They all reflect a compassion and quality of service that is not only genuine, it gets results! I was terrified of the long-term impact and prepared for the worst case scenario. At trial, Mike exceeded my expectations. I was even able to recover my full driving privileges in just over a year. Mike and the Trbovich Team truly achieved the Best Possible Results for me!!!

Michael did a fantastic job for me and my family with my legal matter. I am 100% thrilled with the outcome...and then some! His expansive knowledge of my legal situation and his full commitment to my case was the primary factor in securing an outcome in court I originally did not feel possible. Once Michael took over he kept me fully informed of each particular aspect of the matter and did everything possible to put my best interest forward.
