Review Michael LaScala

  • Michael is hands down the best attorney

    After getting my first DUI dropped to Wreckless after blowing a .21, Michael was able to get my second DUI dropped completely by the prosecution to a traffic citation of Failure to Maintain a Lane due to several inaccuracies by the arresting officer Michael pointed out. Due to a lack of evidence, Michael continuously argued with the DA in Blue Ridge, GA for 7 months and also got to know the arresting State Trooper where he argued the DA had no support for thier case. I was facing a double DUI case there since child under 14 was with me and up to 3 years potentially in prison since it would have been my 3rd DUI in less than 5 years. Michael was able to not only help solve my legal issues but was also a solid person during the whole period of time. I watched several attorneys in court blow in, spend 2 minutes with their client they had never met nd then go make a deal with DA to quickly earn their fee. That is not Michael. Michael cares about you as a person beyond just being a client. He is absolutely THE BEST DUI attorney in Atlanta. Nobody comes close.

    Michael provided excellent service! He is very knowledgeable of the law and spot on with the motions he filed, which resulted in my DUI case being dismissed! Definitely worth every penny!

  • Charged with DUI - Result: Reduced to Reckless Driving / Never had License Revoked

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    After you get a DUI, you get piles of lawyers marketing your mailbox for business(which is a *super awesome* reminder that you just got arrested). Regardless of the mail received and the availability of googling reviews I tend to go with trusted friends' opinions' over best marketing material (sorry graphic designers and copywriters) for anything of importance. So I asked around to the people who knew, and it was pretty clear who the guy to call was(LaScala).

    So lets get some bullet points here:
    - He is super easy to get a hold of; e.g. , answers texts, returns phone calls, if not himself then Kelly, and is very pleasant and honest about the situation you are in.
    - His admin Kelly Madrid is always on top of it, if Michael is in court or whatever the case may be; she makes sure he gets back to you or gets your message. Any paperwork, or financial dealings will be dealt with promptly, and once again this is all with a friendly and pleasant tone. Don't get me wrong no one jokes around about the seriousness of a DUI charge, but I hope you understand my point:
    - The communication is rock solid. Which is important extra important when dealing with a stressful topic.

    The Case: Not going to bore you with all of the details, but here's the idea. I did not lose my license in civil court. He is out there making every move he can that is in your best interest. He has a superb knowledge of the law. He is straight forward about the situation. He works hard, and has a genuine talent for his profession. In my opinion he gets it done and does his best to keep you stress free.
    **Charge: DUI
    **Result: Reduced to Reckless Driving (with minimal penalties, and no license suspension at any point).

    Michael was able to have very serious sexual misconduct charges reduced to disorderly conduct. He kept me informed every step of the way. He knew how to handle an over-zealous solicitor with a messianic objectives. I would highly recommend this lawyer if you ever need someone on your side!

    Michael helped me with major charges on two occasions. In Athens, Michael had a DUI charge thrown out and in Atlanta, despite having a BAC above the legal limit, had a DUI charge reduced to Reckless Driving. Michael is very responsive and I could not be more pleased with the results. I definitely would recommend him to a friend (and have)!

    I had a unique and difficult case which other specialized attorney's were too scared to take on. Michael handled everything with great knowledge and confidence from the moment I first spoke with him to the last little question. Always available, any time of day or night.

  • Hit & Run w/ Overturned Vehicle & 2nd DUI Reduced to Reckless

    5.0 stars

    Anonymous review posted on

    I was involved in a hit and run accident in which I ran into a Jeep Liberty with three passengers that overturned. I left the scene because I had been drinking, which was the worst decision I ever made in my life. I received a DUI 4.5 years ago in Athens, GA and had an array on thoughts that quickly went through my head: 1) I didn't want to lose my job; 2) I couldn't afford a 2nd DUI; and 3) I didn't have my physical license on me. To be honest, I made the decision to leave the scene so quickly and the impact happened so fast that I did not know that the other car had overturned until I got to jail three hours later. Anyways, I left the scene and was pulled over ten minutes later. A witness had followed me and reported my plates. My BAC was .560 and I got a DUI-Less Safe, a misdemeanor Hit and Run and failure to yield. I spent the night in jail and went to Michael Lascala's office the next day. There was major luck involved in multiple areas but Michael Lascala's work was not luck. He clearly has lots of connections in the legal industry, a quick wit and a will to fight for your case. To make a very long story short, Michael kept my license, kept me out of jail and had all three of my charges merged into one charge of reckless driving. God was on my side as no one in the other car was injured at all. I have changed my life because of this incident but I would never have had the opportunity without Michael's help. Hire him. He's also gotten two DUIs thrown out for my step-brother. He's the best in Atlanta.

    I was referred to Mr. LaScala by a colleague. I'm very happy I called and met with him. He explained the situation and was able to have my case dismissed. Michael helped me through a difficult time and was there when I needed reassurance. I'm able to keep my professional license and continue with my life without a criminal charge. I'm very thankful for his work. I would recommend him to everyone!
