Great Service and Results
We worked with Ryan and Brian Legghio to represent a family member in a very difficult situation. Ryan and Brian were outstanding, took a keen interest in walking us all through the processes and procedures, and we came away with the best possible results for our family. More than we could ever have hoped for. (We interviewed 15 attorneys before making the selection of Ryan and Brian.)

Ryan Machasic best of the best
I first met Ryan in 2008, the beginning of a federal indictment, he was the first friendly face I saw that day. After guiding me through a lengthy indictment, and getting severely ill in 2010. He had stayed by my side the whole time, and kept the court system at bay until I was healthy enough to continue. In that period we have became good friends, this is a man that truely cares, I'm not just saying this either. When I had become healthy enough to finish this matter, the outcome was better than expected with Ryan's expertise knowledge of the law, and knowing everybody from the judge to the prosecutor did nothing but help my case. Ending in a plea deal, which I was happy with everything happened to his expectations and beyond. When it was all said and done I walked out of the court room in November of 2013 with my head held high, no strings attached. Once again I am proud to call this man my friend. Jeff

Criminal defense Attorney | Mar 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. I do so with great pleasure and without reservation. I have been an adjunct professor of law at the University Of Detroit Mercy School Of Law since 1995. I teach criminal law, criminal procedure and prosecutorial ethics. I am currently a full time professor at Schoolcraft College. I am a retired Detroit Police Commander and also retired from the Macomb County prosecutor’s office. In my opinion, Mr. Michasic possesses the common sense, enthusiasm, intelligence and ethics which makes him an outstanding attorney. While working at the prosecutor’s office, eventually becoming Chief Assistant, I had numerous opportunities to admire his ability. He has always manifested fairness to opposing counsel while protecting the rights of his client. His extensive knowledge of the law in both the criminal as well as the civil arena makes him extreme"
