Great experience
I hired Michael to handle my DWI case. We won!! I couldn't be happier that one mistake won't ruin my life for years to come! He's very straight forward and gets the job done. I highly recommend him!

Great attorney
After receiving another dui, I consulted Mr. Neece and he assured me he could help me not do any time and keep my license. He kept his word and I couldn't be more happy. He really seemed to be on my side.

Best Attorney
I hired Mr. Neece a couple of years ago to handle my divorce and child custody case. I needed him again this year to handle a traffic ticket and did not have his number saved in my new phone so I took to the internet to search for him and in the process stumbled across a few reviews that has made me want to add my opinion and share my positive experience. Mr. Neece doesn't sugarcoat things; I listened to him every step of the way and everything happened exactly as he told me it likely would happen. Like any good attorney, they don't come cheap. He's very reasonable and extremely dedicated to his clients. As difficult as it was, I got custody of my children, rather than their mother. I couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome, level of service and honesty.

Attorney Neece is an excellent lawyer
I have one word that describes him and that is excellent. V Stevens-Riley. I have used this lawyer several times for my son. He's worth the money and he will definitely work for you and with you on the financial aspect. I wouldn't choose any other.
