    Posted by a client

    Attorney Michael Bruckheim is assuring, dedicated, effective, and communicates excellently. I have the utmost confidence in his services. Michael executed expectations and garnered an ideal result for my matter. He is the type of lawyer who is genuinely invested in his clients' cases and truly strives to attain the best result he can. Clients are lucky to have Michael represent them as I recommend Michael wholeheartedly as an attorney without doubt you should retain as your counsel.

  • Excellent DUI/DWI Attorney

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    I was arrested and charged with a DUI and DWI in a questionable stop. I was sitting in a parked car waiting to let someone out of the vehicle. The police officers did not see me drive at all, but decided to initiate a stop and approach my vehicle. The officers saw an empty bottle of champagne in the passenger area of the car. I was not in legal parking space while waiting to let the person out of my vehicle. I refused to do a Field Sobriety Test as well as refusing the Preliminary Breath Test, and was arrested for a DUI. At the police station, I blew a .08, and was then charged with DUI, DWI, and DUI per se. I was referred to Michael Bruckheim, explained what happened, and he let me know that he was eager to fight this based off of the legality of the stop. In the end, all of the DUI and DWI charges were dismissed, and accepted a Negligent Driving traffic violation and a Failure to Obey Traffic Device Traffic Violation (But did not get any points on my license). In addition, the prosecution did not proceed with the open container charge. Also, the Michael Bruckheim was able to get a "No Action" result for my MVA Hearing (Maryland First-Time DUI cases where you blow a .08 usually results in a 45 day suspension of your license), so my driving privileges were not affected. I recommend talking to Michael Bruckheim to anyone charged with a DUI/DWI. He quickly responds via text, and was open and honest about his approach and best case/worst case scenarios. He never promised an outcome, but ensured me that he would fight the charges. He is very knowledgeable about DUI/DWI law, and absolutely looks forward to litigating. I highly recommend him!

    I was highly impressed with Michael's work; he answered all my questions thoroughly and clearly weighed out my options. Michael was easily accessible and consistently explained all the possibilities that could happen and every course of action that was available. He is an incredibly informative, knowledgeable, and understanding attorney. I immediately felt comfortable in Michael's hands, as he alleviated a lot of fear and stress. I'm very happy with the outcome and could not be more grateful!

    I was facing criminal assualt charges, Michael Bruckheim defended me. He was passionate, understanding and knowledgable. Times when I had doubt about the Judicial system Michael took the time to insure I understood the process and the option. In the end he won the trial and I was found not guilty. He thourghly did his homework in my case. I would recommend Michael Bruckheim as your next attorney.

  • Best lawyer in DC!!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Phil

    Every review I read on here (which is how I selected Mr. Bruckheim) was dead on. They could have been written about my experience. I had another lawyer for a year that was unable to accomplish ANYthing. In a couple short months Michael gave me the world. He is an extremely capable and knowledgeable about the system and the steps to take with the judges and prosecutors. After he dismantled the prosecution in court they were more than happy to drop my charges (to almost nothing) and I only received a $100 fine. I am extremely impressed, I have already referred him to people I know and if any of you read this and move on to the next lawyer I fear you might have made a mistake because I know hands down Michael is the best lawyer in DC. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!! Thank you Michael for helping keep my life on track when it looked like I was going to be severely set back because of our justice system!!!! I cannot say enough good about my experience and having Michael by my side.

    Michael was great, I'm happy he was my lawyer. He was very easy to get in contact with whenever I needed him. He really cared about my case and made sure the case was being resolved. He was very well prepared on the court date and throughly went through all my options. I'm happy with the conclusion of my case and I highly recommend him to any one needing legal help.

  • Who needs Luck when you got the Bruck

    Mr. Bruckheim is an EXCELLENT attorney and I highly recommend him. He was able to get my charge bumped to a much lesser one which carried no permanent marks on my record and no points on my license (this was very important to me for insurance purposes). He negotiated a plea deal that was very favorable for me and advised me to take steps along the way that really strengthened my case. Even my fine was on the lower end of the spectrum. In DC (where he represented me), he is very knowledgeable of the system, the judges, and the prosecutors. This is important because he was able to use this knowledge to negotiate the best deal. Because of his high level of professionalism and great relationship with the clerks, he was even able to expedite my case to the front of the docket so that I could get out of the courtroom quickly. His fees are very reasonable and he worth every penny. Overall I was thoroughly impressed and he was a pleasure to work with. A+

  • Without a doubt the BEST professional and personable lawyer, worth EVERY penny

    Posted by Vivian

    I received my first DUI and I called around to many different lawyers before I found Michael. Many lawyers quoted me either ridiculous prices or seemed to avoid all of my questions on the phone. Let me just say that because this was my first run in with the law I had a ridiculous amount of questions but Michael took the time to answer ALL of them thoroughly one by one. I called his office and was able to speak to him within minutes. He is very personable and makes you feel at ease. He is extremely quick at responding to your calls/texts and even called me to update me on my case while he was sitting on the beach during his vacation! His great relationships with the prosecutors, the judge, the marshals and even my arresting officer made my case that much easier. When dealing with a potentially life altering case you need a lawyer who has those connections within the DC court system like Michael. Also, his retainer is more than reasonable and he was willing to work out a payment plan. The end result--- I was given a DSA and he was able to work that out for me even during the Christmas holiday time. I highly recommend Michael not only for his professionalism and his great track record and his great relationships within the DC court system but his humility. You can see that he is respected by his fellow peers and he has more knowledge than most of them in the court. Without Michael I wouldn't have been able to make it through this scary time in my life. I not only gained a superb lawyer that I can count on but a great person who guided me through this rough transition.
    Retaining Michael's services was the best decision I have ever made. You WILL NOT REGRET IT!!

    Michael Bruckheim is a very personable and professional lawyer. Before I settled on Michael as my counsel, I called around to many Lawyers and many quoted me ridiculously high prices; others seemed to come off as cheesy car sales men diving into a pitch about why they are so qualified rather than getting all the facts to my case. Michael put me at ease immediately and he is very reasonably priced. He is very attentive and responds immediately to texts and calls. He was very confident the entire time and the case was actually dismissed. Book Michael Bruckheim as your counsel and you will not regret it.

    Thanks!

  • The fine difference between good and SUPERB....

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Michael Morgan

    .... and Michael Bruckheim is SUPERB .... I got into a little trouble this past year involving some misdemeanor charges and Michael sat me down like a big brother and patiently broke it all down for my complete understanding. Took every phone call. Answered every text. Instantly. Infact, he was on vacation at the beach this past summer and stopped his day -- everyday -- to answer every single one of my questions. Never once was he impatient or annoyed... never. A great lawyer is a friend first... someone who will calm you down, put the myths out of your head and replace them with FACTS. If you're reading this .... you're more than likely very scared ... I got arrested now what? Who do I trust? Who do I talk to? This was me. Know this: you cannot do this without a lawyer. You need a lawyer like Bruckheim who has all the relationships within the DC court system... from the prosecutors... to the judges... the marshals... the courtroom clerks.... you are going to need someone like Bruckheim to navigate all this for you. Trust me you will be too emotionally drained, worried to even want to think about it. Bottom line: he got me an incredible result and he will do the same for you. The decision is up to you, but you will NOT find a better attorney for the money (btw he's very reasonable and more than willing to work out more than fair financing) than Michael Bruckheim.

    Thanks again Michael.
