Michael Streng Review
Mr. Streng handled my case with the utmost professionalism and knowledge of the law. Utilizing his years of experience and familiarity with the local court systems, he worked diligently to resolve my case before appearing before a judge with a satisfying offer from the prosecutor. While not the cheapest office on the block, I can confirm that you get what you pay for the Mr. Streng.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Mr. Streng was recommended to me to handle my recent OVI case in Champaign County. This was my first offense, so I had no idea what to expect. Mr. Streng's professionalism and attention to detail eased my mind and I knew I could not have picked a better attorney to represent me. He was very courteous and took time to answer my questions. Mr. Streng is not a "cookie cutter" lawyer, he understands each case is different and looks to find the uniqueness in your case, and use it to your advantage! Mr. Streng is definitely one of a kind in my book and I wouldn't think of seeking counsel from another attorney. I highly recommend Mike Streng to anyone who in need of an exceptional attorney!!

Mr Streng got my OVI reduced to a wreck less operation!
Mr Streng knows what will work in differant court systems. For example, He recommended me being tried in Franklin County court over Dublin. I was cited in Dublin. Due to the fact that Dublin is "harder" on OVI people vis, Franklin Co. So, Mr Streng and I went to jury court at Franklin Co., and, my OVI was reduced to a wreck less! Now, I won't be thrown out of the Military and, will retain my Secret Clearance! Thank You, Mike! Even though this whole thing 'Sucked' for me...I enjoyed working with You and your colleagues.

Innovative
Mr. Streng did a great job for me. He was very professional, courteous and likes to try many approaches. I could not be more happy with the decision I made to have him in my corner. I was most happy with his ability to try innovative and new defenses. Also for fighting for me until the very end.

Find a better attorney!
Wanted me to take a plea whe the cop was clearly lying, showed me the video of the trooper lying on video in his office. charged me $1500. Acted like he was going to really represent me during the consultation then the day of court he acted like the video was lost. I could have did a better job in court without him and saved my money.

I highly recommend Mike and endorse his work."
