Michael was very easy to contact and would respond in a timely fashion. He did a wonderful job explaining all of court information to me. He is very professional and although he has a busy career he always took time to respond via email, text, or phone call. If you find yourself facing an OWI charge it is in your best interest to contact him and his office. Although expensive, it was worth it in the outcome of my case. I was charged with a High BAC and in the end accepted a plea deal of impaired. Overall I am very satisfied with my experience with him as my attorney.

We are enormously indebted to attorney Michael Boyle for his expert handling of my case. I had been arrested after getting into a head-on collision with another car with a BAC that would have been classified as "superdrunk" plus a few civil infractions, and he got it down to nothing more than a regular OWI with 6 months probation. From our first meeting with Mr. Boyle, we were immediately reassured that whatever the circumstances, in him we would find the best defense possible. He has worked in this court system and with these people for years, and had invaluable insight to the procedures and paths available to our case. He truly cares about his clients, and makes sure to know you on a personal level when he takes your case. He's very up front, he'll never promise something he can't guarantee, but he does know the best case-scenarios and how to best prepare so as to get there. He made sure I had the best possible portfolio of steps to have taken by the time I went before the magistrate, and then before the judge, so that it was clear to him that my arrest was the result of a single poor, and ultimately uncharacteristic decision made by a usually responsible person at a very hard time in my life. He is always available, day or night, to take any calls or questions you might have, and I always felt that navigating the steps of my defense was like being on a ship with Mr. Boyle as the very capable captain steering it along, I just had to keep it running by making sure I was doing the things he suggested that helped prove the kind of person I was. The cost to hire him is money very well spent, and I am eternally grateful to him for getting me where I am today. Thanks, Mike, so much for everything!

Mike is a one of a kind lawyer. He is excellent in his quick responses and truly cares for his clients. He goes above and beyond and I have nothing but positive things to say about him. If you find yourself in an unfortunate situation with a dui, Mike is the man to call.

What made me decide to go with Michael was the fact he and his team were diligent in answering my calls or responding as quickly as possible. Waiting for answers from other lawyers was stressful, and the time they spent talking with me before even getting my business was much appreciated. They explained all the paths they could take to either drop charges or at least bring them down as soon as possible. I had a unique situation where I was leaving the state 2 weeks after my OWI. He was able to work with my schedule and got the earliest times possible to help me keep it under wraps from work. He has connections, and will always use them to help you out. He's a busy man, so I usually got his answering machine, but he was always very quick to call back. He was able to get the judge to let me leave the state and return at a later time (2 months later) for the final arraignment. I was arrested going 75 in a 25 with a .184 bac. Dash cam "wasn't working", no inconsistencies in the blood testing, and "had blood shot eyes and stunk of alcohol". Michael was able to get a plea deal of removing the speeding ticket, and a regular DUI. Saved so much money just through insurance. He's not cheap, but he definitely reduced my stress. I'm glad I paid more rather than trying to save money with someone else and wondering if it would have been better to spend more money. Long story short, one of the most expensive mistakes of my life, but without Michael it could have been much worse. Still have my job, got through probation easily (Michael helped get my probation cut early), and Michael was very good about keeping in touch with me after the plea deal. He didn't leave me high and dry to fend for myself.

I was arrested for an OWI and was freaked out because I had no idea how it would impact my life. This was the only time I have ever had anything like this happen. I called Mike's office and Kathy was very helpful in walking me through their process. She was even able to set up a meeting between Mike and myself for later that day. After an hour long consultation, I knew Mike would be the best one to take my case. Throughout the whole process Mike and his team were very helpful and communicative. After 3 months, he was able to get the OWI dismissed and dropped to lesser charges. Mike is the best out there and well worth the money.

Michael J. Boyle is the best OWI/DUI attorney you can hire.
In November 2015 I was charged and arrested for a OWI charge in Ann Arbor, Michigan during my visit from Toronto. I didn't knew whom should I consult regarding my charges. Then one of my friends referred me about Boyle and then we went to discuss about the case. After taking to the Barone Defence, my stress was relieved a bit but I was still worried, how will I come on all the court dates from Toronto. I realized that I have definitely made the right choice by hiring him when he helped me by waiving off some of my court appearances. And finally in September 201 6 my case was dismissed. All thanks to Mike Boyle's efforts he put into my case. I have no words to thank him for saving my life.
He was very thorough through the entire process. His preparation and professionalism is second to none. Mike was very gracious with his time, answering numerous phone calls and explaining and re-explaining until I understood the process. The support staff is also very professional and kept me posted about the case.
I highly recommend Michael J. Boyle for OWI/DUI charges. Your money will be worth spend and will be proud of your decision about hiring Mike Boyle after the final decision.

You're obviously reading this because you or someone you know has had their world flipped upside down with an OWI charge. I understand how scared you are feeling, I was in the same boat April 2016. Mr. Boyle came highly recommended from a friend and I definitely made the right choice by hiring him. Mr. Boyle and staff were very attentive to my overwhelming concerns and went right to work. I had a prior OWVI charged from 2006 so this was no picnic. My biggest concern was jail, I didn't want to serve jail time. The sentencing Judge was new and had a history of handing out jail time with prior alcohol related charges. Needless to say I was scared to death! Mr. Boyle drove 45 mins to meet me and discuss my case, I immediately felt at ease and great about about the outcome of my case. Mr. Boyle kept me out of jail, also got my charges reduced to another OWVI which in my county is not to common. I was able to keep my license, my job and dignity. I promise you will not be disappointed retaining Mr. Boyle. He works hard for you and is attentive to your concerns. He will call, text or email whenever you have a question or concern. Hopefully by now you have decided Mr. Boyle is the lawyer for, you will not regret it!! Good luck to you!

I had never hired an attorney before a recent arrest for DUI/OWI. I don't know any attorneys and I never had a reason to contact an attorney before this event in my life. I was completely clueless on how to find a good DUI defense attorney. Luckily, I stumbled onto Avvo and found some reviews like this one recommending Barone Defense and Michael Boyle. I called Barone and a few other listings I found on Avvo on the Saturday night of a holiday weekend.
An associate from Barone named Kathy called me back within an hour. It sounds like a small detail, but her prompt return call was a major factor in me eventually hiring Michael Boyle and Barone Defense. The other law offices didn't call me back until Monday or Tuesday the next week. Also, Kathy understood the emotional state of mind I was in. She helped me feel a little less panicked which meant a lot in retrospect.
Kathy highly recommended Michael as one of the best DUI lawyers in Michigan and helped me set up the initial meeting. After talking with Michael and Kathy, I knew Barone was the obvious best choice for me. Being arrested for DUI is a very stressful event in anyone's life. One of the few sources of comfort I had was knowing that one of the preeminent DUI defense lawyers in Michigan was in my corner.
Michael has a well-established reputation in Michigan as a leader and advocate for the fair treatment of DUI defendants. He did a great job of clarifying what the possible outcomes would be in my case, which helped to relieve a lot of the stress and uncertainty. He also gave me step-by-step directions on how to rehabilitate my image with the court. Michael has a lot of experience in this field and knew how to put me and my case in the right light. My case had some unique characteristics including an Implied Consent violation and high BAC. Through his solid working relationships with the prosecutor and judge and his experience in handling matters like this, he was able to get my Implied Consent violation waived, which was a crucial factor in my life going forward.
All in all, I have nothing but the highest respect and appreciation for Kathy, Michael, and everyone I dealt with at Barone. Everyone was very professional, compassionate, and prompt to respond to my correspondence. The whole process was very efficient. Barone took care of all of the details while I tried to get back to a sense of normalcy in my life. If you are looking for a DUI defense team, you are probably very stressed-out. I encourage you to take the first step toward easing that stress by giving Barone a call. You are in good hands with Barone and Michael Boyle.

As an out-of-state client, I was extremely worried about laws, possible outcomes, and penalties I didn't understand. Michael and his team were very patient in explaining the steps I should take and how best to present myself to the Court. We achieved the best possible outcome and his advocacy was worth every penny. I'm so thankful he was there for me. The people of GR have a real champion in this man. When you're frightened and scattered, do not be afraid to call on them. Best decision I could have made.
