GREAT Attorney
I retained Mike for my son charges. He made a mistake right after turning 18. Mike represented him and made sure that this decision will NOT follow him and impact his future. If your looking for an attorney to be upfront and honest then Mike is the right choice for you.

Highly Recommend
Michael Brush has been nothing short of excellent. He is a very knowledgeable, professional, and caring lawyer. You can tell he loves what he does and always keeps his clients informed every step of the way. This being my first experience in court, Michael has walked me through every step of the way, answered my countless questions, and offered guidance and support during my incredibly emotionally draining and difficult custody battle. Michael has been able to obtain favorable outcomes for me in the court room. I would recommend him any day!

Family member of client
Mr. Brush was very helpful to my son in his case. He was very professional and thoroughly answered our questions when we had them. He kept us informed of the status of the case and presented the evidence and luckily we were able to have the case dismissed. We would use his services again in the future.

Helpful, Experienced, and Hard working
Our family has had the opportunity to work with Attorney Mike Brush on several occasions since 2013. Each time a situation came up, he was there for our family at a moment’s notice. Each time we weren’t sure what was going to happen, he was there to answer our questions. And each time we had to call, we always found Mike to be a hard worker, who knew key people in the system all around the local Dayton area.
