Dui case
Michael Babcock truly works miracles! I was going to be charged with a 2nd dui and I had about 3 other charges against me. He not only got the 3 charges dropped but also helped me receive my license. His professionalism and knowledge is outstanding, truly a nice down to earth lawyer. I would highly recommend him.
