Misdemeanor assault resolved!!!
I was placed in a perdiciment at my place of work that ended up with me receiving a misdemeanor assault charge from the city of grand Blanc. I was referred to John Tosto by another attorney my initial consultation. John was more than willing to spend as much time discussing the simple topic at hand and thorough detail. He offered me some advice on my employment side of the matter and after the initial consultation, I hired him. He was able to get the prosecutor to dismissed the initial charge in favor of a civil infraction with a minimal fee very pleased with the outcome him and his staff gave me the confidence I needed in a somewhat stressful situation. He’s saved in my phone as attorney! Hopefully for my sake I don’t need to call him but I appreciate the simple relationship I developed and I entrust him for future consultation and advice.

So happy.
John Tosto represented me in a homicide case. Not only did he get my homicide charge dismissed, he was able to get thousands of dollars that was seized from my home by the Government returned to me. I would highly recommend Mr. Tosto. He was compassionate, courteous, and very aggressive in his representation.

My Lawyer!
Working with John was a game changer in my driving while intoxicated case.  After I was pulled over, I had googled everything I could find about Michigan driving law before reaching out to a handful of local lawyers.  While I learned more about the infraction, the lawyers I talked to did nothing to give me any confidence in me being able to drive for a long time.  When I talked with John, he actually asked me about me, he listened to my story and he really talked to me about my situation.  I walked into his office terrified and left feeling relieved I found the right attorney.  When I was leaving our first meeting he told me to not even think about the case, he would handle it and that's what I did.  When our date came for court John had already worked out the best possible outcome to allow me to keep my drivers license and get back to work.  His experience in case law and ability to proactively work a solution, made all the difference in the outcome of my case.   He's my Lawyer!

NOT Guilty
We hired Mr. Tosto as our criminal defense attorney in an automobile accident case against our loved one. He was accessible, hardworking, highly responsive, and devoted to our case. We met with him often, he heard our concerns and input, and never made us feel like less than a top priority. His diligence ultimately led to the NOT GUILTY verdict that was deserved. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Happy Client
First off I can not express enough how much I truly appreciate and recommend Attorney John Tosto. John is able to quickly assess his clients needs and goes out of his way to meet them. I was impressed right from the start when he extended his cell number should I need to contact him outside business hours. He was always supportive from meeting with us multiple times on Saturday’s or a quick text message on the latest update. He is always responsive to any questions or concerns about the legal proceedings. John is a very professional, honest and experienced attorney, who is a straight forward and keeps you informed of next steps and what to expect. I’ve utilized his services for multiple types of cases over the years and he has always handled each with diligence and professionalism with favorable legal outcomes. I will continue to recommend him to family and friends. If your looking for an experienced attorney with high ethics and integrity John Tosto is the attorney for you.

Excellent Attorney, I Highly Recommend
My family was involved in a bad car accident. It was an extremely stressful time and we had no idea what to do. Luckily we were referred to John Tosto. John did an amazing job walking us through the legal process. He always answered questions, was quick to return calls and I never doubted that he cared and had our best interests at heart.

Very accommodating and eliminated most of my stress
John came highly recommended to me by a friend of mine when I was in need of representation. He met with me on a Sunday because that worked for my schedule. He answered all my questions about my case and other general law question. He is extremely knowledgeable, down to earth, and has a wide range of legal expertise. Don't hesitate to contact him if you ever need a great attorney. I'm sure he will be able to help.

Disorderly Conduct (Neighbor Dispute)
John Tosto came highly recommended to me to hire him to represent me in a neighbor dispute. I contacted him and was able to schedule a consultation very quick. I retained him and as fast as I hired him was as fast as Mr. Tosto had the dispute dismissed in my favor. He is very easy to talk to, professional, confident and educated. I highly recommend him.

Up front hardworking attorney
I was looking at prison time for a 3rd felony DUI. My case was in northern Michigan 200 miles from my home. John was able to get me into a Drug Court program in my home town. This took a lot of persistent effort on my his part. His advice was straight forward honest and sincere. I recommend John when ever anyone ask my advise on a defense attorney.

Takes the time...
John is a wonderful attorney that I have used a few times now and has always been attentive and resolved my matters effectively. He has always kept me informed of every stage in the process and has been easy to reach unlike some attorneys I have dealt with. In addition, John has always been able to offer great advice on matters surrounding my case making my situation much easier to endure. His rates are reasonable and I find his legal expertise exceptional as well as his reputation with judges and other attorneys in the area. I highly recommend John Tosto to anyone seeking legal representation.

Strategic, consummate professional
I cannot make a strong enough recommendation for John Tosto. I am a professional who made a careless mistake and found myself in an awful situation. He handled the case with professionalism and went above and beyond to make sure that my case ended with the best possible outcome. I have referred several people to him and they have also been very pleased with his work. Being charged with a crime, a dui, or needing a family law attorney is a stressful experience. Having someone to handle the situation with professionalism and expertise makes it manageable. Without hesitation, I would recommend anyone I know to him for help.

Hardworking and trustworthy
I have used Mr. Tosto for two different types of cases, one being business related and the other being traffic related. Both times I felt that Mr. Tosto kept me informed about what was going on, handled things timely, and got results that were fair and above my expectations. I have recommended him to friends and family members for different types of cases and they have all been extremely satisfied. I trust Mr. Tosto and will use him for future issues and continue to recommend him to others.

Willing to go the extra mile
I hired John to defend my child in a hazing incident that turned into a messy criminal sexual conduct case. John was very thorough in his investigation and letigation and was willing to defend us to the very end if necessary. There were several individuals involved in this case and from his experience in the juvenile court system we were able to have the case dismissed without any hassels with community service, probation or court records. He really cares about his clients and is excellent in the way he relates to teenage clients. If you need a laywer for anything related to teenagers I would highly recommend him. He is very easy to work with and listens to and values his clients inputs while at the same time balancing the discussions with sound legal advice.
