I hired Michael for my case and he is great!
Mike is honest kind and very trustworthy and has pull that NO other Lawyer has. He is respected by everyone in the system and was actually Recommended to me by a friend and WOW and i glad i called.
I was scared and overwhelmed with everything that was going on and his POWERHOUSE team came to my rescue, Mike and his Asst Arelene are priceless and know what they are doing.
They kept me informed the whole time what was going on and made the process so much more bareable and i felt like i had a powerfull person by my side and representing me.
Mike advised me of the best choices to make and told me how he could get each outcome and i trusted him and he turned out to be exactly as i thought and heard he was.. not to mention towards the end of my case i ended up making another mistake and got another charge and in ONE conversation between him and his Bud (the state Pros) got the charge completely Wiped away saving me TIME MONEY AND MORE STRESS. Simply unreal , Thank you Mike and Arelene , you both are AWESOME
Mike has since added one more addition to his team and makes his Practice that much more effetive. -JPc

The rating graph above does not give this attorney as much credit as he deserves. He went above and beyond for my family, and that is truly an understatement!
There were two local attorneys involved in our very unusual case (that I personally thought was a no win situation). Had Mr. Perry not been involved, there would have been a completely different outcome. He did all of the investigating that was required to win this case (the other hired attorney did nothing except show up in court). He exceeded all of our expectations.
If you have a complicated case that requires an attorney that not only listens, but then fights the fight... you need Michael Perry on your side!
He was referred to me by a friend to whom I am forever greatful!
