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.

Drivers License Restoration
After a while of being intimidated by the process of getting my drivers license back, I looked up a few DL restoration lawyers and came across Abdo Law. I got excited and inspired after reading through their information. I met with Cy and immediately felt like this was something I could do. We started the process and Cy was there every step of the way. He promptly addressed any questions I had. Some felt silly to ask, but he never made any of my concerns seem as so. He thoroughly explained the process and the work ahead. I'm proud to say as of today, 4/30/24 I was granted my full license back. I would strongly encourage you to choose Abdo Law to represent you. I can't thank Cy enough for everything. I highly recommend Abdo Law/Cy Abdo.

Best Dui Attorney Ever!
I put off getting a lawyer for a drunk driving until I received a notice from the court and had to act fast. I needed a Clinton Township criminal defense lawyer. I called Abdo Law and talked to Cy. I was attracted to his firm because of the great reviews and informative web pages for drunk driving cases. First of all, he answered all of my questions and assured me of no jail and I would be able to keep my license. There were some restrictions imposed for 90 days but the case went smoothly, the charge was reduced, I don’t have to report to a probation officer and I can file a request to get off probation in 6 months. This is better than I expected or heard that was possible from other lawyers that had me scared and worried. Thank you Cy for being the great guy!

Domestic Violence Charges - Cy's got your back!
Facing two charges of Domestic Violence (one "Aggravated") can be a hard, chilling and lonely place to find yourself. It can feel like your life is over — but with the right attorney in your corner, it doesn't have to. From the very start, Cy Abdo worked to win my trust. First, by listening to me (something no one else had done), then by carefully describing the details of the process I'd face, and finally, by thoughtfully laying out the options for how we approach my case. In the end, what Cy delivered for me at sentencing was one-year of probation — meaning, at last, a return to a normal life and a chance at a better future. When you're in legal jeopardy, the most important decision you'll make is who you retain to represent you. In Macomb County, I can't imagine there's any better choice than Cy Abdo.

The greatest
Over the summer I got into big trouble I needed an attorney and that's how I met the greatest attorney in the world Cy Matthew. On my way to my 1st meeting with him I was scared and felt broken not knowing what he would think of me I was facing 15yrs.after I left his office I felt a ton of weight lift off my shoulders Cy didn't look down on me and was full of compassion. He came up with a plan and told me what he was going to try to do again he didn't guarantee but I also had my part to do Cy is not your 9-5.Hes a brilliant hardworking attorney.and returns the same day on the 24th of January the judge handed down my sentence..Cy with his hard work took it down from 15yrs in jail to probation. As I left the court room I was thinking if I was to hire someone else my freedom would have never happened. Cy Matthew is brilliant and is and always be my HERO...THANK YOU CY..I will never forget you.

Great job from an experience lawyer
Cy did a good job and due to his experience was able to inform me on what I should expect. While it was on me to do my part Cy provided excellent advisement that allow me the best possible outcome for my case. Never a problem getting ahold of Cy he was always a phone call or text away. While I don't expect to be in a situation like this ever again if I needed an attorney I would call Cy Matthew Abdo.

I contacted Cy 2 days after I was arrested for felony owi third, I was terrified, ashamed, I felt like a complete loser, I really was broken.

He laid out a plan for me I did exactly what he told me to do, I had a couple panic attacks throughout the process, again Cy made me feel better!!

The Hardest Working Attorney in Metro Detroit, Bar None
If you make a mistake like I did and need help through the legal system, you need an attorney who is well respected, professional, and who will be dedicated to your case. Cy and everyone at Abdo Law are the embodiment of these traits. Cy was always honest and direct with me about my case. He will not sugarcoat your situation for you but he will not treat you like a criminal either. Do what he tells you needs to be done, and he will absolutely guide you through the system to the best of his ability. My case was a long one. On the subject of Cy's dedication to my case, an important hearing for me fell on a date that he would be out of town. However, he didn't just pass it off to someone else in his office, rather, he brought my file with him on his VACATION and was present for my hearing from his accommodations. Five stars is simply not enough to accurately rate Cy and his team. We got the result we were after and I can say with complete honesty that I unequivocally could not have done it without him. Thank you Cy and thank you to everyone at Abdo Law!

Finest attorneys
Cy and Matt took excellent care of me and achieved outcomes I did not believe could happen. They stayed by my side on my journey getting my life together after a serious crime as a young adult. They gained me the ability to drive again after years of struggling. It greatly improved my life and self worth. Recently they were able to expunge a crime that many other attorneys did not believe was possible. I have had the serious crime on my record as a young adult for almost 13 years. Yesterday they were able to get it off my record. I have nothing but love, respect, and admiration for them and their office. If you are looking for the finest counsel in town, look no further than Abdo Law.

Best Decision I Could Have Made!!!
This is the first review I've ever felt the need to write. If you are ever in the need of a fantastic lawyer, don't look any further than Cy at the Abdo Law Firm. About 8 years ago, I created a horrible situation for myself. Randomly called Cy and after the initial consultation, I knew I was in good hands. Not only did he exceed expectations through that whole ordeal, but also recently relied on Cy again to have that record expunged, with positive results. His entire team is professional, knowledgable and easy to work with. The Abdo team also excelled in communication the entire way - I never had to call for an update, they were on top of everything every step of the way. If you are in a rough spot and in need of help, you could not be in better hands. Thank you Cy for everything - no amount of words could come close on what you did for me.

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.
