Quality Lawyer!
My overall experience with Michael couldn’t have been better. He was very attentive to every question I had. And with my case, I’ve never had any experience dealing with the judicial system so therefore he practically had to walk me through the process and was extremely thorough. He worked tirelessly to get me the best outcome possible and i would 10/10 recommend him to anyone else who is in search of a well experienced lawyer. Thank you very much Michael!

Made a difficult time so much easier!!
Mr. Franchi was honest, accesible, and went way above and beyond helping me every step of the way during a scary and challenging period of my life. He truly earned his fee, my respect, and I am profoundly grateful to have had him as my attorney. I highly recommend his services and can testify that he is a cut above when seeking legal counsel!

Speeding Ticket
Mr. Franchi got my speeding ticket reduced from a 36 over to a 9 over. Due to my military career I was unable to attend court, which he took care of and resolved my case. Would highly recommend and would hire again if needed.

DWI representation
Michael was very professional and knowledgeable about all laws and punishments for my case. Was always available to speak when needed, and was able to set up things that I had to get done. Couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer.

Lawyer Review on Michael Kosrow Franchi
Mr. Michael Kosrow Franchi represented my case on July 2021. He was easy to contact, demonstrated multiple acts of guidance, and continuously updated me on what was going on. Specifically speaking regarding my case, he made sure to give me the information I needed regarding the ticket I received. This ticket was for driving after 9 even though I had not received my full license. I was stopped due to the frame of my license plate and simply ticketed for not having my after 9's. Due to COVID-19, I explained to the officer the situation with the DMV and did the same to Mr. Franchi. When presenting my case to him, he immediately gave me his professional opinion and reliable telephone number where I could reach out to him for any questions or concerns. He gave me instructions on the next steps such as taking a driving course (under 21), setting up a DMV appointment, signing the contract to hire him and pay him. This part of the journey specifically is one to note as I believe I paid a fair amount for both parties with the option to pay fully or do so in payment plans. Anytime I had any questions or concerns, I always got a reply in a short amount of time and was guided every step of the way. My case was dismissed successfully due to Mr. Franchi's hard work and dedication in providing the best service.

Efficient and helpful
We hired Michael to represent our son with a speeding ticket. He was traveling 95mph in a 70mph zone. The ticket was reduced to 9mph over the limit saving us a lot of headaches. His communication was clear, concise and prompt. Also, we never had to step foot in the court which is also a plus because we live hours from where he was pulled over. I'd definitely refer him and use his services again if the need arises. Thanks Michael!

Awesome representation! Above and beyond the call.
Michael handled my domestic violence and DUI with ease. I was sure he was the one to represent me just on the consultation. Very understanding and knowledgeable on both subjects, and actually produced a strategy and attack with just the limited information i was able to give at the time. Very confidant with how the law works. He was even able to alter the finalized judgment of my DUI stipulations after the fact. Which never happens. He really cares. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that really needs a real professional.

Patient, Conforting and Cares - Best Kind of Attorney
I have had Michael take care of two previous cases with ultimate satisfaction. He not only took his time to listen to me on the phone but also put me at ease with my concerns. He is the definition of an A+ Lawyer in all respects. I called him and each time he answered my calls and put me at ease. I feel he likes what he does and ascertains the best outcomes of each case. I would trust him with anything and feel right at ease with hiring him for anything I needed or referring him to family member or friend.

Great experience!
I had an exceptional experience with Mr. Franchi. He was easy to get in touch with when I first needed his help. We did a consultation over the phone and it was smooth sailing from there. I got a great result in court and I’m very grateful for the outcome! Thanks for the help on your amazing service. I truly felt like I was treated like a human during this crazy time which was much appreciated. Will definitely recommend this attorney to people I know.

Very Satisfied
I was stopped for a traffic violation. Michael did a great job in knowing the ins and outs of the court system and getting the violation reduced which resulted in no points to my insurance.

Great Attorney
So Michael Franchi was sooo helpful. I had an issue that arouse because the courts were closed because of covid. I got a failure to appear, which turned into a suspension of my NC driving license. How do you appear when the courts are closed? I tried to figure out what to do but between the Wake County clerk telling me one thing and the NC DMV telling me another, I was getting no were fast. After about 2 months of me trying, I got Dr. Franchi's help. He had it figured out in about 6 hours! I cant recommend him enough.

Extremely Professional and Personal
I would highly recommend Michael Franchi as a lawyer to anyone who is looking for a lawyer that will take the time to get to know your story personally, and from a legal standpoint. Since this was my first encounter with facing a ticket/attending court, especially in the middle of a pandemic, Michael made it easy to ask questions and not make me feel "stupid". He was understanding and patient with all my questions and concerns, as well as took the time to hear about my profession and how the ticket could impact my work place. (driving a bus for students) He truly takes the time out of his day to help those who need it, and represents them in a professional and respectful manner. My case turned out in a positive result thanks to Michael, and I'm sure he would do his best to represent you and provide a positive outcome for your case as well.
