The MOST INCREDIBLE ATTORNEY AND INDIVIDUAL!!!
Cy Abdo is an ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE ATTORNEY AND MAN. I spoke at length with more than 20 attorney's from Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne County, some at double the cost of Cy. I am certain, no other attorney could have produced the results Cy did, nor put in as much time and effort, nor provided the EXCELLENT level of response throughout the entire process. I was able to get in contact with Cy over the phone, even on a weekend, over text and through email. His response time was always IMMEDIATE. He let me know what documents would be helpful to the case, that he received the documents I sent, and even answered any unexpected questions to situations that arose outside of typical business hours. I can't imagine there is an attorney that works harder and is more available to his clients, than Cy. He was in the office every day, even during COVID when many attorney's were working from home. He was in early each morning, and even went in on Saturday for a good portion of the day to work on one of my cases. The hard work, and many hours, he put into the case yielded results no other attorney was able to offer. Many of the other attorney's I spoke with thought jail time was definitely a possibility, anywhere between a weekend to 30 days. Cy was able to avoid any jail time, and even obtain minimal sentences on both cases. Even with a prior Felony and Domestic Violence charge on my record, he was able to get a Domestic Violence Second offense reduced to Disorderly Conduct with only a year probation. He was also able to get the second Disorderly Conduct charge deferred, meaning it will not appear on my record, after a short probation. Both of these cases took phone calls to prosecuting attorney's, which HE INITIATED, followed up on, and also pursued different avenues when we received an unfavorable response from the first prosecuting attorney on the more damaging second case. Also, the good working relationships, he had established with the other attorney's, enabled him to be INCREDIBLY EFFECTIVE and have good communication and resolve both cases even prior to being in the court room, which was very important to me. Furthermore, the RESPECT he has earned from the JUDGE was evident, as she stated each of the four times I was in front of her, that 'I was lucky to have such an upstanding, good, and well respected attorney'. The third time I was in front of the judge she stated 'normally an individual would receive jail time for such an offense, and that I need to be thankful that Cy is SO WELL RESPECTED, and as a result my sentence was much lower than it normally would be'. The fourth, and last time I was with the same judge, she specifically stated that 'I would not have received the limited sentences I did, if it wasn't for Cy and that I should be very thankful for his preparation and the way he represented me in the court room'. The judge did not state this once about any of the other attorney's present for any of the other cases, during any of those four appearances. There were also no additional fees beyond what Cy quoted me, even as the case progressed. Even after my case was finished, and he had no other obligation to the case, he still continued to help me by providing a recommendation for a psychologist that was part of my sentencing. He even personally reached out to the doctor, explained the circumstances and let him know my financial limitations. As a result, the doctor agreed to offer his services at a lesser rate than when I had originally spoken with him. Also, after the case was done, Cy kindly typed up a cover letter and provided the letter of apology to the victim because I was unable to have contact with her as a condition of my probation. Lastly, I experienced much anxiety over the two charges I received. When that anxiety was high, he took the time to answer any questions I had, and never made me feel any shame for the mistakes I had made. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this man, he is an INCREDIBLE ATTORNEY AND INDIVIDUAL!

Response from Cy Abdo March 10, 2021
Thank you so much for this review. We know that it is a difficult process to hire a lawyer. A lot of marketing can appear to be a bunch of bragging about who is the "best". As you mention, attorneys also use scare tactics to charge hefty prices. And if you read reviews carefully, you wonder if they are real or written by someone's grandma. Well, I am glad we delivered a result which was better than I expected but always felt that you deserved. Thanks for doing absolutely everything that I asked to help get great deals and close these files that could have gone south. Many many thanks.

Life Saver
I am writing this review today to let anybody that is considering of retaining the services of Abdo Law Firm to absolutely do so. When I saw Cy is a life saver, in my case, it is absolutely true. The end of May I made the terrible mistake of driving drunk and wrecking my car. I was nailed with a super drunk driving ticket. I was referred to Cy by a family member and am I glad that I was. In my particular case, albeit a rare one, a conviction of a DUI would disqualify me from a life saving operation I need due to a terminal illness. Cy listened to me and heard me out every step of the way. He is willing to work with you, but you have to be willing to work with him. I did every single thing he asked of me to do. Substance abuse evaluation, provided any requested documentation. In turn Cy was able to put together an outstanding effort which ultimately resulted in a literally life saving plea agreement. Let me be clear; this would not of been possible with any other team/lawyer. Sure there’s a price to pay for his services, but you are paying for intangibles with this man. His reputation alone is clearly top notch. The respect he is given by the employees of the court was apparent immediately. This is from years of hard work and an impeccable ability by Cy and his team to conduct themselves at the highest level both personally and professionally. I am still shocked at the level of communication I received from Cy personally. You would think a. Lawyer just maybe wants your money and will do the bare minimum to collect their check. Not Cy, but his team. He truly cares about his clients and delivering the best results possible for his clients. It was so apparent by his effort that he truly enjoys bringing a sense of comfort and peace of mind to his clients who obviously are nervous, scared, and have an unfortunate legal matter that is derailing their life. If you’re retain this team, at the end of the case, you will be breathing a “Cy” of relief. Cy, thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving my case your passion and effort. I will be eternally grateful and am a better person for knowing a hard working, loyal man such as yourself still exists in today’s world. For those on the fence about retaining his services, what are you waiting for? Give yourself the best shot and please hire this wonderful team.

Professional, Respected, and Caring
Cy Abdo represented my son in a serious matter regarding a possible charge of terrorist threat against a school. He visited my son in custody within hours and handled the case throughout and we arrived at the best possible outcome. We had four court hearings that he guided us through and it was clear that Mr. Abdo was not only well prepared, but he is known and very respected in the court system. I would certainly recommend his services and would seek his advice again if needed.

World Class
I would like to thank Mr. Cy Abdo for representing my best interests in a legal matter that occurred in 2022. Mr. Abdo is a lawyer who truly embraces “24 hours/7 days” a week mentality. He responds in an extremely timely manner whether it is on a Sunday afternoon or 6:00AM on a weekday. He kept me informed every step of the way including dates and times of court appearances, despite the court system failing to send me proper documentation and notices of appearances. He also employs a skilled team of competent lawyers who are also working around the clock on your behalf. You do not feel like you are going into court alone, but rather with a highly experienced team behind you. Thank you again Mr. Abdo, you are world class. To Matthew Abdo: You may be gone, but you will never be forgotten.

If you need a defense attorney, do yourself a favor and hire Cy Abdo.
I was riding a bicycle, and crashed into an unattended, parked car. I was injured, and needed urgent medical attention, so I went to the hospital immediately, then went to the police station, and reported the accident after I was discharged. About a month later, I got a letter in the mail from the sheriff's office saying I was being charged with leaving the scene of a PI-accident (the only person inured was me). A conviction on this charge carry's a potential 1-year prison sentence, and a guaranteed suspension of your drivers license for a year. I am a professional firefighter/medic, so a conviction on a charge like this, and losing my drivers license, would mean not just losing my job, but losing my ability to work in my field at all, permanently. This would have been absolutely catastrophic for my family (I'm married with 4 children). I was pretty terrified, so I went online to search for a defense attorney. Cy Abdo had the highest ratings, and now I know why. His combination of wisdom, expertise, and tenacious work ethic, was extremely clear to me, as he worked tirelessly to see the case through to a dismissal of all charges. He kept me informed of what was happening every step of the way, and it was clear to me that he truly cared about what happened to me, as though I was his own family. When you're being accused of a crime, it can feel like the Justice system is rigged against you, and like your life is being turned upside down. If you find yourself in this position, do yourself a favor and hire Cy Abdo, you will be glad you did, I certainly am.

Hands down best choice to make in difficult situations.
I found myself facing a potential catastrophic life altering case, Cy and all the staff at Cy Abdo law firm took on my case, giving me piece of mind in a very difficult position. Cy gave me expert professional legal advice instructing me as to the course of action to best benefit my situation. Cy and company were in constant contact giving me updates as to the progress of my case assuring me that the best possible outcome would be achieved. He didn’t not fail in his task. I am very grateful to Cy and everyone at his law firm for their hard work and dedication. My case was resolved to the satisfaction of both myself and my family with a very manageable outcome. I would recommend this law firm to anyone in need of expert legal help and advice. You won’t regret it. Thank you again, very much Cy.

Great Legal Services from A-Z
After contacting several lawyers, I hired the Abdo law firm to handle my case. The result was better than I expected, I did not have to do any testing or report to probation and the offense was lowered which will save me in many ways in the long run. Cy Abdo answered all of my questions and returned all of my phone calls and never charged me extra if I needed to talk or meet with him. I like the fact that he charged one flat fix fee to have on my case. I spoke with other attorneys that could not give me a straight answer regarding legal fees which made me very anxious. My decision to hire the Abdo law firm was the best decision that I could’ve made.

Response from Cy Abdo November 11, 2022
Thank you for your review. I appreciate your comments about our fee structure. We handle most cases on the basis of "fixed flat rate" fee so that clients know where they stand for the entire duration of a case.

A highly respected, straight talking professional
I was charged with Brandishing a Firearm in Public. Cy Abdo was able to work with the Prosecutor and the Judge to reduce the charge to a very low Disturbing the Peace offense. Further the court took it under MCL 771.1 and dismissed the charge with no period of probation, no loss of CPL or gun rights. Cy is a gentleman, straight shooter and well respected by the courts. I would absolutely use him again, but sure hope I never do.

Response from Cy Abdo October 9, 2022
You never belonged in a lawyers office under these circumstances. The system works ok, not great. The legal system often labels the wrong person as a victim and its hard to get the courts, police and prosecutor to listen to another side to the story. Fortunately, your case worked out well and the Judge was more than willing to get rid of this case. Thanks for the review.

Professional! Respectful! Winner!!
I was charged with a high-BAC DUI/OWI. I made a mistake and was willing to accept responsibility for my actions, whatever they may be. Reached out to Mr. Abdo. He met with me quickly. Was extremely professional and told me what I could expect. My court date came and he got me a penalty of 12 months non-reporting probation with random testing during those months. Also had to complete a two hour impact class. After six months he filed for an early termination of probation. That court date was today. I did everything required of my probation terms and he was able to get my probation terminated five months early. I would highly recommend Mr. Abdo if you’re needing assistance in the court system. No judgment. Very proactive. Highly effective! Thanks again Cy!

Recent Case In Macomb County
Wish I could give more than a 5 Star rating. I used Cy for a recent case in Macomb County and he did an outstanding job with my case. Cy explained the possible outcomes for my case in detail and explained his approach for the hearing. If anyone is looking for a lawyer in a criminal case, they need to call Cy. He actually cares about his clients and goes beyond what most lawyers are willing to do. I highly recommend Cy Abdo, he is the BEST.

Just Do It!
If your back is against the wall and you need help, hire Cy! I made a mistake which wound up being a felony and of course had me very scared as I am not someone who has spent their life in and out of courts and jails. The first time I contacted Cy he told me not to worry about it and he'll take care of it. Well that's easier said than done when all I could worry about was what was going to happen to me, my family and my job. Every time I spoke with him he was always very reassuring that I wouldn't go to jail and everything would be fine. While it made me feel better to hear that, I was still very uncertain. How can this man basically all but guarantee I would stay out of jail?? Well, he was right! He had a plan and after only two court dates I'm able to get back to my life when it could have been much worse. Not sure I would have gotten the same results elsewhere. He has done this for a long time and is very well known and respected in the court. This is the first time I've ever hired a lawyer and hopefully the last. BUT, if something were to come up or somebody needed help, Cy and his team is where I would direct them. No felony on my record and no jail time! Thank you Cy!
