5.0 stars 101 totalReview Michael Haber
Posted by Jennifer
I hired Michael Haber based on all of the previous positive reviews on AVVO. I had no prior criminal record, but was arrested for a DUI & careless driving on the worst night of my life. I had an accident in which I hit 1 car, which hit another car, the 2nd car hit a 3rd car. It was a 4 car accident.
I was terrified and embarrassed by my arrest and impending trial. Mr. Haber spent a few hours speaking to me when I first contacted him. He explained my current case, pros and cons. Mr. Haber is an HONEST and straightforward attorney. Yes, I wrote an "Honest" Attorney.
He is well versed in the law. He made a discovery which was nothing short of miraculous. Since I was involved in an accident, I was ineligible for the diversionary program. Since Mr. Haber had the State of Florida on the ropes, I received a better deal than the diversionary program!!!
I took a leap of faith in Michael. If you are in any legal criminal matter, then you should call Michael. He will give you a straightforward analysis of your case. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose by hiring him. I am so very Thankful to him!!!

I was startled when I learned that my son-in-law had been arrested for loitering and prowling in a small, distant Florida community. No one in our family knew anyone from that area and, as an attorney, I was gravely concerned that it could result in a permanent blemish on my son-in-law’s clear record. I immediately began to investigate legal references for an experienced criminal attorney in the locality where he was charged. My son-in-law knew, respected and wanted to retain Attorney Michael A. Haber, but I requested that I be allowed to participate in the call to make sure that Attorney Haber knew the applicable statutes and procedures and could ably defend and protect my son-in-law in a distant jurisdiction. From our initial call, I gained confidence that Michael Haber was the right attorney. He was very knowledgeable about Florida law and procedures, answered all of our concerns and explained in detail how he planned to handle this important matter for our family. Attorney Haber was always responsive, courteous, respectful and encouraging, and the matter was successfully resolved precisely as he projected. If you have a criminal arrest in Florida then I can now both personally vouch for and recommend Attorney Michael Haber to provide top tier legal representation. I am most satisfied with my decision to retain his services to defend my son-in-law.

I wanted to let everyone including the firm how I felt about your service. I want to start with my knowledge and experiences that I have had with other Law Firms. Lawyers that I have had in the past have an Assistant who replies to all email's or returns your calls for the lawyers.
WELL GUESS WHAT?: At the Haber firm "The Lawyers" CALL YOU BACK NOT THERE ASST.
That's worth every penny because, I would rather speak directly to my lawyer at all times.
This is a huge personal level of client care that the Haber firm offers with their service. They promptly returned all my calls and texts. The case I hired them for was very intense and very emotional to my family. The firm was supportive in a personal spiritual way. Not too many lawyers can offer you that type of service.
This firm is a diamond in the rough! Michael and Mark are one in a million who truly take their professional career to heart. The firm did an excellent job on my case and provided me with an extra bonus with their personal touch and care.
Thank you Michael and Mark.

Hired Mr.Haber based off of his excellent reviews to convert the remaining of my CC sentence to reporting probation. He was stright foward to the point, honest and able to handle any objections well. Did great research. I would highly recommend Mr.Haber to anyone who is seeking to persuade and have success in court. He will do all in his abilities to get the best outcome for you in court.

My name is Maurice I was referred to Mr.Haber by a friend of mine when I first called Mr.Haber to take my case he was very helpful, I had a situation and he was kind enough to understand my situation Mr. Haber first asked me if I had any cases in the past and I told him, "yes". He's not the type of person to beat around the bush he's very straightforward he doesn't take shortcuts and he let's you know how it is he was on top of my case. There was never once I would have to call him and ask him what's going on, he always kept me informed and he also let me know what to expect and what not to expect. I had a meeting with Mr. Haber, him and his partner got me prepped and prepared for trial. From my experience at Mr. Haber I think he's a very good lawyer easy-going and he's very confident about his cases.

I have know Michael personally for several years but have neither ever needed his services nor do I personally know anyone who he has represented. A few months ago I was out of town on the west coast of Florida and found myself taken to jail on a misunderstanding. I felt powerless, no one listened to me and when I ultimately got my phone call I reached out to my wife, and she reached out to Mike Haber. Knowing that my wife had spoken to Michael was comforting and helped me to keep my cool in the jail overnight. The next morning I was released and headed back to Ft. Lauderdale.
When we spoke, without hesitation Michael immediately proposed a course of action and described in detail how the case would play out. He explained that he had handled similar cases in that same west coast county and how he would approach and negotiate with the prosecutor in my case. He assured me that my case would be favorably resolved and that we would probably never even need to appear in court... and he was right.
After giving him the go ahead Michael consistently copied me on his correspondence with the State Attorney, constantly provided me with detailed accounts of how things were moving along and send me exceedingly detailed and easy to follow instructions whenever there was anything that I need to do personally. Amazingly, it was only about 6 weeks later when my case was resolved, and it occurred precisely as Michael said that it would (the charges were dropped and I never had to appear in Court).
While I'd like to think that Michael gave me special treatment I honestly believe that this was "business as usual", and that this is just how Michael conducts his law practice. Regardless, on personal experience I now wholeheartedly recommend Michael Haber to anyone who is arrested and needs criminal defense representation.

My husband, a white-collar property manager with absolutely no prior legal record of any kind, was working four hours away from home for the day in an effort to offer face-to-face communication to a disgruntled party. Instead of a grateful reception, said party rescinded their welcome and called the local police with a falsified accusation of loitering and prowling. Despite never being asked to leave the property, my husband was arrested in this small and distant county. I became aware of his arrest at around 11 o'clock in the evening, sending my distress of his tardiness into alarm. My husband suggested that we reach out to Michael A. Haber, Esq., whom we knew through a mutual friend. I was able to reach Mr. Haber shortly before midnight. Mr. Haber was directly available and he offered his time, legal perspective, and calming expertise. Mr. Haber was knowledgeable about the relevant statutes, procedures, and corresponded with me through the night as he monitored my husband's processing and arrest via his internet savvy capabilities. The following calendar day I consulted my father, a lawyer of exceptional repute, whose areas of expertise do not include criminal law nor is he licensed in Florida. My father's suggestion was that in defense of my husband's reputation we seek to hire a high-powered and hence exorbitantly expensive lawyer in the county in which he had been arrested. Mr. Haber was generous, polite, and proficient in discussing the legal situation with our entire family. Mr. Haber offered to assist us in resolving this matter himself, or to refer us free of charge to a distinguished lawyer in the relevant county. Mr. Haber attempted to reassure us and insure us that this matter did not require the expense nor the effort of hiring local big guns. Our pockets, legal records, and hearts are grateful that we chose to select him as our legal representative. Our case was resolved with immediacy, expertise, and surprising convenience. Our sincerest thank you, Mr. Haber.

My fiancée unfortunately was caught in a bit of two consecutive misfortunes and was referred to Michael Haber. Being that i am 9 months pregnant and my fiancee was all of a sudden gone, we were in desperate need of a miracle! I cannot even begin to explain how GRATEFUL I am to have found him and how AMAZING he has till this day represented my fiancée in court. He has kept us informed in every step of the way and has never "blown sunshine up our skirts". He is honest and hardworking in every way possible, which is rare to find an attorney like this in Miami at least. Everyone in our court room who got to hear his presentation was absolutely in shock at his talent and strategy with the case. I had never heard our judge say anything but "no" or had seen anything but a frown on his face when watching him with other defendants, but when Michael walked up to the podium he even had him smiling and laughing at times. He is truly remarkable at what he does. Although we are only halfway through our case, I couldn't be happier that we found him & chose him to represent my fiancée. We are BLESSED! In a situation in which we thought we were hopeless, Thanks to Mike, my fiancée will be able to welcome his daughter into the world with me. Mike has shown us the light thanks to his unbelievable talent!

Not just as a lawyer but as a person, he is one of the most hard-working and honest men I have ever met. From our first conversation he showed incomparable knowledge of the legal system. He explained my case and provided me with recommendations on what to expect. Most lawyers will make you speak with a secretary or you have to leave several voicemails before you get any response. Not Mr. Harber, he would patiently respond to my dozens and dozens of questions and was in regular contact updating me at every step. When we first talked, I felt that I could trust him. And I am so grateful that I did! His dedication to my case and his immense proficiency in the court helped me get the best results in the fastest time possible. If you need a lawyer in Florida, you don't have to look any further. He is the one you need. I can't stress that enough. I would recommend him to my own family, friends...everyone!

Being from another state, we needed to find a good FL attorney to handle a long-term issue which needed to be corrected within the records of the MPD. Other counsel had no clue how to go about this process but then we found Michael. I'm an attorney with almost 16 years of experience from NY and I must confess, I have never seen positive results happen so quickly. Not only do I applaud Michael's efforts, I STRONGLY suggest that if you have any matters in FL - Micheal should be your 'go to' guy. Thanks to him, a decades long horrific error caused by MPD was now been corrected
