Michael answered when I called. He was very clear on what he could advise on and what should be handled by another entity. It made easier for me to up a plan to approach my project.

Attorney Michael Brooks Review
In May of 2016, I consulted with Mr. Brooks on the possibility of him representing me at a hearing specific to a security clearance investigation being adjudicated on my behalf. He was very clear on his fee and was direct on what he would provide for me as my attorney. I hired Mr. Brooks, even after consulting with an attorney who 'specialized' in the type of hearing I was to have. Mr. Brooks was extremely professional and competent in the matter telling me exactly what I needed for him to proceed possibly eliminating the need for the hearing at all. In early September of 2016, I was informed by Mr. Brooks, and by the Department of Defense, that their need for clarification on concerns they had was satisfied, and a hearing was not required. I received formal notice from the DOD cancelling the hearing. I strongly would recommend Mr. Brooks and if necessary, would use his services in this, and other legal representation matters.

Wonderful Experience!
I was searching for professional advice on a business contract that I am about to sign. He went above and beyond my expectations in every way. As a business owner, I was pleasantly surprised from the very start when he contacted me on a holiday - Labor Day. When you own a business, there simply are no holidays, and I was impressed that he understood this. He examined the document I sent and pointed out things that weren't obvious to me until he explained them. This is exactly what I was looking for - someone to point out things that I would not have noticed as a lay person. At the same time, he also addressed items in the contract that I was concerned about and he explained all of my options. I felt like he was very knowledgeable and had a lot of experience in business and real estate law. Again, this is exactly what I was looking for when I searched for an attorney. When I've looked for an attorney in the past, there were hidden costs and ultimately, I paid a lot more for the services rendered than I was originally quoted. That was not the case here at all. On the contrary, he actually provided more assistance than I could have imagined for a price that worked for me. I hope to not need an attorney in the future, but that's unrealistic, so I am sure I will be contacting Michael in the future.

Great insight and advice!
Mr. Brooks was quick to return my call, and very patient as I told him about my legal situation. He was knowledgeable about contract law, and his advice to me was thorough as he explained the various approaches that could be taken on my end should I decide to pursue defending myself. He was easy to talk to, and he did not hesitate to mention that I could call him anytime with additional questions I may have. I would like to meet him in person someday, and would absolutely consider him as legal counsel in the future!

Michael Brooks Saves the Day
Mr. Brooks immediately took on my case and came back with successful results in less than twenty-four hours. I was in a big dispute with a highly reputable dealership and was being mistreated. Mr. Brooks was upfront and explained to me my rights and instantly helped me. He was also easily attainable. I highly recommend Mr. Brooks. ;-)
