Great guy, great work
I could not be happier with the outcome. Michael has worked very hard on my case and has helped me out greatly. I hope I don’t ever have to call him again, but if I’m in trouble he’s my first call. Smart guy, the hardest worker, the best at what he does.

Great lawyer!
From the start of my case Michael has been informative, helpful, and always had a positive attitude. His office was very effecient in keeping me in the loop and reassuring me of any details needed. I would trust Michael with any case. He is very detailed oriented and always keeps a level head. If you're in search of someone who will take their time and give you maximum effort, look no further .

Money well spent
I was facing a seveal felonies, incarceration, and thousands of dollars in potential debt. I was faced with a tough decision utilize a Public Defender and take my chances or take the money my spouse and I saved for the down payment for our first home and hire Michael. We did our due diligence and did research and couldn't find a bad review. We me with him in person, he was straight to the point, broke everything down in lamens terms and didn't speak and Legal jargon. Michael made me aware of how serious my charges were & what he would be able to do to resolve them. Their was roughly 10 charges 3/4 of which were invalid, the other 1/4 were the serious charges which would have resulted in time in prison and future employment. 18 months, Two courts & two judges later, I received no felonies, or prison time but instead I received probation, fines, and house arrest.

Best lawyer in the game
Absolute GOAT!! I caught a very very bad moving violation and had 0 hope of getting it fixed. Michael worked it all out for me and I could not be happier with the outcome. To say this man saved the day would be an understatement. He handled the case very well in court and was able to save my driving privileges which is huge!! Will forever be a customer and friend to life with this guy. Highly highly recommend and you will not be disappointed once he handles your first case!!
