Michael Huyoung was a godsend for us. At age 68 I found myself in a situation I never could have imagined and was being prosecuted by the federal government and was looking at a long sentence.
Never ever in all my 68 years have I ever faced such a frightening possibility and had never, prior to that time, been involved in crime. I was informed by the FBI that I needed to get a good attorney.
With no experience and things like that I was at a loss to even know where to begin so I asked our eldest son, who was a policeman at that time, who he would recommend and he immediately said Michael Huyoung. Over his many years as a policeman he had seen hundreds of attorneys at work and he said Michael was the best.
He was absolutely correct.
It was a complicated case and Michael invested the time and effort both to understand what was the nature of what I was accused of and communicate honestly with me regarding what might be my outcome. Even though I my wife and I were terrified he never offered false hope but was forthright and objective.
Even the US attorney told us that I had a very good attorney.
I could say much much more about Michael – – his abilities – – his character and his reputation so I'll suffice it to say I would heartily recommend him to any and all who would find themselves in need of a truly professional attorney.

I have known Michael HuYoung for over 30 years, first as an adversary when he defended persons I had arrested and most recently as my representative in a civil matter. He has always been respectful, honest, professional and knowledgeable in his representation of and interactions with me. I would highly recommend Michael HuYoung to represent anyone I know, including family. I have used him in the past and will use him in the future if a need arises. You couldn't ask for better representation.

This was my first experience needing a criminal attorney, while I can say this was an experience I had never anticipated I am glad I had Michael Huyoung on my side. Through out the process Michael provided me with straight forward advice. Michael never sugar coated the situation, but with honesty and candor he guided me through the process. With due diligence and passion to present the truth on my behalf he successfully defended me and obtained a not guilty verdict. I would reach out to Michael without hesitation if the need presented it self again.
