I can't say enough good things about Michael. He helped me through what was certainly one of the worst times of my life. He was honest, caring, non-judgmental and realistic. Aside from his skills as a criminal defense attorney, he is one of the most genuine, caring persons I have ever met. He fought very hard and advocated for me with the federal prosecutor. We agreed after much consideration to a plea and he proffered an excellent plea agreement. He guided me through cooperation with the Federal agents.
My outcome could not have been better as I received 2 years probation, no fines and no restitution. I will forever be indebted to him as I rebuild my life and career.

My daughter landed herself in some hot water with the law. We discussed her situation and set out to minimize the damage to her permanent record. When you are trying to help a loved one, it's hard to just "hand over" their well being to an attorney with hope as your only comfort. When I met Michael he came across as an attorney that really wanted to help. Michael is direct, detailed, and focused on your issue. He took the time to work up a plan of action and he stayed on top of every aspect of our case. I have to say that Michael did a fantastic job representing us in court with very desirable results. If ever we need an attorney in the future, we will hire Michael for representation. Thanks for everything!
