Mike took control of case from the onset. He walked me through it step by step and was upfront with me on what our defense would be. His calming demeanor helped me with my high anxiety, but more importantly his experience and persistence garnered me the best possible results at sentancing. He was always available via email for questions and concerns. I highly recommend Mike for your legal needs.

I had the odds stacked against me with an unfair charge and was certain that I would not be able to bounce back from a horrible situation. I was terrified; it seemed as though nothing was going my way and that I would be swallowed alive by the legal system. Mike Villar was so professional, confident and powerful in the courtroom that the first time I heard him speak I KNEW that things were going to go my way. I had asked around to friends and everyone told me that Mr. Villar was amazing both in and out of the courtroom. Once I heard him plead my case I was a believer. He is the best attorney in Michigan, and maybe the US as far as I'm concerned. He destroyed the prosecution and gave me an outcome that even I couldn't believe. This was by far the best money I've ever spent, and I honestly couldn't believe that he didn't charge more after I saw him in action. I now recommend him to all of my friends and family. Completely pleased with his services.

I'm a real estate broker so I can recognize when someone is good or not through years of reading people. I am out of state and my first attorney was referred by one of my good friends that's an attorney in my state. Unfortunately my friend didn't know much about the first attorney. I sensed he wasn't what I wanted. I then reached out to a friend that played in a band in Saugatuck, and everyone kept telling him Mike Villar. The second I talked to him on the phone I could tell he was the real deal. This guys rates were very reasonable, and he fully understood all the procedures of what was happening to us. We were way overcharged for drinking at Oval Beach watching a sunset. If we would of stayed with the previous attorney it could of affected our lives for a long time. What I loved about Mike was that he said the way he works is he goes in like honey, and if he doesn't get what he wants then he turns to vinegar. Being in real estate I appreciated that! Going in thinking the worst, Mike not only got me the best case deal, but he left me leaving with a feeling that I even enjoyed the day because of his genuineness and positive energy. He talked with us for another 30 minutes that had nothing to do with the court. Very pleasant experience with him, and I highly recommend him!

Michael Villar is a fierce legal representative who confidently took my case and produced results. My case was unreal to a lot of people so Mr. Villar had his work cut out for him.
I was taken advantage of early on in my divorce case due to me living outside of the state of Michigan. I was left with a mess involving parenting time and outrageous support obligations that were put into place with orders produced by manipulation via my ex wife. I had 3 other attorneys prior to Michael Villar who were all shut down in court while trying to resolve my issues. My ex wife won in the beginning but finally about 3 years later I was still fighting and the good lord put me in front of Michael Villar.
When I sat in Mr. Villars office the first time we met, I looked around as I spoke to him and got the feeling that this man was not going to feed me garbage, he would give it to me straight every time. His simplicity along with his unmasked emotion brought a sense of comfort that I had not experienced with previous attorneys.
My other attorneys were very intimidated by my ex wives council to where I had been making wasted trips to court in Allegan Michigan from Pennsylvania and Ohio for some time at this point. Michael Villars vast knowledge of the law combined with his fierce direct approach put the opposing council on their heals. I had never seen my ex wives attorney look even close to intimidated until he met Mr. Villar.
I spoke to Mr. Villar in spring of 2014 and by that summer he had convinced my ex wives attorney to advise my ex wife to work with me on parenting time until the final order was issued by the judge. I had a total of almost one entire month in my home in Ohio with my kids during the summer of 2014 along with monthly weekend visits in Ohio where my ex wife was sharing 25% of the travel (about 2.25 hours out of the 9 hour round trip). Since my divorce began in 2011, my wife was dodging my parenting time visits and creating issues due to a vague order that was drawn up by her council. So what Michael Villar did for me that summer was a big deal in my eyes.
Next Michael Villar made it to where I had my first Christmas with my kids and one week of Christmas break in 2014 and then all of Spring break 2015 (over one week) all in my home in Ohio. Remember that this was all accomplished without a court order due to delays outside of Michael Villars control within the court system. There is now a proper parenting time order in place where my ex wife has to split the 9 hour round trip to Ohio 50/50 and she no longer can play games with out consequences.
Next Michael Villar settled a show cause issue involving a debt from my ex wife and had a credit applied to my large support balance since I had already paid the debt off.
The next part of my case was tough but Michael Villar was able to review my documents I had saved over the years and called the judge out on a mistake made by the courts mixed with false statements made by my ex wife. The judge agreed with the error on the behalf of the courts and allowed me to revisit a judgement involving arrearages that were awarded to my ex wife totaling more than 20k. Michael was able to prove that my ex wife was not entitled to any of that money and exposed my ex wives unethical maneuvers that manipulated the courts into ordering me to pay her that money. The judge reversed the judgement and has credited me every single penny of what I had already paid he also completely removed the balance that I still owed on the the false arrearages.
Michael Villar did what all other attorneys in my past could not get done for me since 2011. By June of 2015, Michael Villar has gotten every single issue resolved for me with a 100% win rate. Michael works with honesty, integrity, and a strong motivation to stand up for what is right. Michael Villar is a true leader in his profession.

I made a poor decision one night while hanging out with some friends, and I ended up having multiple charges against me. I thought my life and my future were ruined! Mike represented me in my case and I have no criminal record and received a better deal than my other friends! I never thought I would have been able to walk away from that situation with a clean slate. I highly recommend having Mike represent you, especially if the odds seem stacked!!! HE'S A MIRACLE WORKER!

Mike Villar served me extremely well as an attorney. He went above and beyond to get me what I deserved in my personal injury case. I found him to be very trustworthy and approachable. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has been in an accident. And if I ever need an attorney again, I will definitely call Mike Villar!

Mr Villar is an OUTSTANDING attorney!!!! I was being sued by an ex business partner for 90k and the cards were stacked against me, huge. They had what they thought was all the proof they needed for a slam dunk win. Mr Villar shut down all their big moves and left their attorney stuttering on many occasion, and ultimately had the case dismissed. I highly recommend Mr Villar for what ever your needs may be and will always use him for any situation I may need his services for. Furthermore, I would also think of Mr Villar as a friend. He saved my business and pretty much my life. I give him the highest recommendation possible.
