The best lawyer in Florida.
Had a few felony charges and Mr.Ohle handled them perfectly. He was a very kind understanding and professional lawyer who went the extra mile to make sure I received the best deal possible. If you have any type of felony charges you are facing believe me you want the best lawyer in Florida and that is Michael Ohle.

Michael Ohle is Amazing!
I can describe Michael Ohle as being a Man of his word. He cares about his clients and is willing to go over and beyond for them. He is actually one attorney that listens and works hard for his clients, it’s not just about money. Very Outstanding! I wouldn’t recommend anyone else.

10/5 stars
Mike Ohle has been representing me and everybody I've ever recommended him to for years. I was young, confused and scared when i first got into trouble a few years back. Immediately was put at ease and with every encounter after i only grew more confident that i was going to be ok. I brag about how awesome "My Lawyer" is and give his number to everybody. He's never, not once made me question his abilities in the courtroom. Mikes not the lawyer that's going to tell you what you WANT to hear, he's going to tell you what you NEED to hear. As much as he's on the front lines, he's in the background too. Michael Ohle is very thorough, professional and caring. He fought like hell for me. I will forever be in debt and cant say Thank You enough! I hope i never have to use his services personally again but i keep his number and card on me at all times. If you have any legal issues, i highly suggest you get off the internet and call his office! You wont regret it.

Mr Ohle saved my life, BEST attorney in the Treasure Coast.
The moment after my arrest I contacted Mr. Olhe, I knew of him because MANY of my friends and a family member have used his services and were extremely satisfied. From the beginning, Mr Ohle was honest. Honest about my situation- the probability of winning, the probability if losing, and the potential consequences. Never made any promises he knew he couldn’t keep. He kept it extremely “real”. That is the most important thing to me, especially while facing something that could have potentially left me in jail for awhile. He did NOT sugar coat everything to get my money. This is a true problem with attorneys in my opinion, lack of honesty. Not with Mr Ohle Though I had never been in ANY legal trouble before, I was facing a unique situation, With very enhanced factors in the nature of my charge, where it seemed almost CERTAIN I would have NO chance at probation or any other consequence BESIDES incarceration. Mr Ohle kept me updated every step of the way, his staff was awesome, and not only is he extremely professional, He is very personable. He speaks to you as a friend and human and not JUST a client. You are NOT a dollar sign to him. He definitely made me feel at ease during our conversation prior to court. He took the time to calm me down, when I was probably the most terrified I have ever been. (Sitting in front of the judge). Again in my unique situation, Mr Ohle did an excellent job of portraying my case, as well my defense witnesses in the most credible and impactful way. And in the end, What I thought the “impossible” was, happened! I went from walking in to my hearing expecting to leave in cuffs, Or with a turn in date, Nope! Not with Mr Ohle He fought extremely hard for me. I really cannot express my gratitude for him enough, so I figured writing on here would be a start. To let everyone else know. Mr Ohle is the real deal. Down to earth, Honest, and extremely kind. He really took a case that seemed to have NO potential of a favorable outcome, and made it such a win for me and my family. Mr Ohle saved my life in my opinion. Again, I truly cannot thank him enough. I’m honestly tearing up a bit thinking about how had I not hired Mr Ohle, Would I be writing this review right now? Most likely not. If you are charged with ANY crime, I highly suggest contacting Mr Ohle. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney or a better outcome. And not only DO I have these wonderful things to say, and a wonderful outcome, I can name off the top of my head atleast 10 other people I know PERSONALLY, who also utilized Mr. Olhe’s services and were extremely satisfied. Not to mention, I believe Mr Ohle is the most reputable and respected amongst the judges and prosecutors in the county. His name constantly appears in court, He is a popular choice amongst defendants and for wonderful reasons. He, His wife and family have been serving this area for decades! I know this is rather long, but I hope for anyone reading this thinking, “There is no hope for me” or if you are on the fence about hiring an attorney- Mr Ohle brings back the hope, and works diligently to make sure it comes true. Just couldn’t have asked for better. I hope I never have to hire an attorney again, but if I do, I have Mr Ohle on speed dial. I would never recommend anyone else! Worth every penny spent, and he is also very fair with his prices, especially for the quality of his work. Thank you Mr Ohle! Absolute life saver Call him NOW NOW NOW!

Mr. Ohle, the man with the plan.
After searching for a lawyer restlessly, I found Michael Ohle. I contacted him and scheduled a meeting, discussed the charges and severity of the situation. From then, I hired him on the spot. His professionalism, determination for the best results, and his experience as a criminal defense attorney saved me from doing ANY prison time and kept a conviction off of my record as well. Michael Ohle was very upfront about my case and NEVER left me clueless. This man literally helped give me a 2nd chance at life, and I could never thank him enough. If you want the best, you hire Michael Ohle.

Michael Ohle did an exceptional job representing my son. He was facing some serious felony charges and was looking at some possible jail time. However Michael and his staff did an amazing job working out a deal and my son won’t have any convictions or jail time. I recommend this lawyer to anyone needing representation! He really is the best lawyer on the treasure coast.

Best Criminal Lawyer!
Michael Ohle he is the best lawyer in the Treasure Coast. I retained Michael Ohle for My criminal cases in 2014 and 2017 And received nothing but the best advocation for my case. I had an addiction which caused me to end up with Possession charges. I was never convicted of a felony and he was able to talk the state into withholding adjudication giving me a chance for a better future. I am now almost finished with my bachelors degree in human services and I thank for not once but twice being able to fulfill my wishes. I have to say that I would recommend Ham to anyone meeting Lawyer in the area. Call Michael Ohle!

An attorney with Integrity
I hired Michael, prior to Covid-19 for serious charges that could have ended my careers in both the Military and Civilian. With significant obstacles in his path, Michael stayed the course and did just what he said he would. Michael is a skilled orator in the court room. He is also well known in the court system and can negotiate with the best of them. He never wavered from the path to reach the truth. I am so thankful for Michael's guidance and knowledge of the law. We were well prepared to go to trial but ultimately Michael's perseverance on my behalf allowed the charges to be placed in Diversion, eventually leading to dismissal. Great attorney, better man! I recommend him highly.

Attorney michael Ohle
My family hired Michael Ohle to represent my daughter. She had cases in both Martin County in St Lucie County. We are more than pleased with the outcome he was able to get in the cases. Michael's work ethic, knowledge, and professionalism put us at ease as we were going through stressful time. I would definitely hire him again, and recommend him to family and friends.

Superb lawyer
From Day 1 of contact, Mr.Ohle was accessible, professional, motivating, genuine, accurate, extremely knowledgeable and personable. Ohle and his staff made me feel as if I was their only client and was thorough with every one of my inquieres. I would recommend Ohle&Ohle to anyone needing help with a criminal case. Mr.Ohle’s work and care made a difficult process progress smoothly through the end. With Mr.Ohle’s help I was able to achieve the best possible outcome for my case. Not knowing who to call for a consultation, Mr. Michael Ohle was the first and the best.

Facing 10 years in Jail
Mr Ohle is a awesome attroney. I moved to Florida in 2016 to rebuild my life after losing everything I had to a sickness caused by environmental toxins. I was a homeless chauffeur driver living out of my car, and taking showers on the beach for 2 months. After establishing myself in Florida for a few years the economy went under, and I was struggling to survive. I made some quick unthinkable decisions to pay my bills that landed me in the legal system for the first time in 43 years. I consulted with a few close friends on legal advice and was told about Michael Ohle. I gave him a call and the very first day he knew what the outcome would be. He saved me from going to jail and a conviction! I was put on probation for 36 months, but with good behavior I could be done in 18 months with 50 hours of community service. I was facing 10 years in jail!

Mr. Ohle
Mr. Ohle took over my case from a previous lawyer i had. He did an amazing job catching up to speed on so little time. I had a very serious case which would have landed me behind bars for a long time. But Mr. Ohle fought hard for me and a result of his hard work and dedication for me, i am now a free man as of today!! Thank you Mr ohle! Words cant express how grateful i am to have had you by my side as my lawyer. Keep up the great work. Its definitely noticed and appreciated. God Bless!

Wonderful Lawyer
Mr. Ohle was a fantastic lawyer. I could tell from the start he cared about my case and about me. He worked very hard to get my case dismissed and did just that. He has a strong knowledge of the law and was able to help me tremendously. I was also worried about hidden fees and charges but Mr. Ohle's office had nothing of the sort. They were upfront and honest about everything in terms of price and my court proceeding.
