My fiance doesn't have the prettiest driving record to start with and of course ends up getting yet another reckless driving ticket a few months back. We were so fortunate to have been referred to Mr. La Fratta by a friend! He was extremely responsive and diligent and without going into too much detail, got my fiance out of a pickle! I can't express enough how grateful we are! I would recommend him to anyone, anytime, without a doubt! Fantastic!! Thanks again Michael!!

Michael La Fratta is knowledgeable, he did a great job for me. His dedication to my case was much appreciated.
I highly recommend him to anyone needing legal representation.

I hired Michael La Fratta to represent my son on two occasions. He is highly professional, yet genuinely caring, easy to talk to (without feeling intimidated) and he actually returns your calls/emails quickly. He explains openly and honestly, what the outcome may be and what his goals are. I could not be more pleased with Mr LaFratta, he is just not an average lawyer. He is nothing less than exceptional in every way and I will highly recommend him to everyone.

I know Michael both personally and professionally. He is a great lawyer and a great friend. He works diligently for his clients to get the desired outcome, whether that is through negotiations or by going to trial. He is hard-working and professional.
