Yang saved me serious time
Yang has been saving me for a few years now. I had an open case and then got 2 more cases but he still kept me out of jail even though I should have gone. he has fought harder then any other lawyer that I have had.

Great lawyer
I hired Mr Yang to help with a possible legal issue I was having. He was polite, kind knowledgeable and showed genuine concern when it came to my problem. Mr Yang walked me through the whole process and helped emensly. I would recommend him as an attorney.

Best Money I Ever Spent
Though I had heard of him before from word of mouth, I was made aware that he would be available for my case as a public defender, and that there was no conflicts of interest. I knew he was good but when he almost overturned the preliminary hearing I told him right then that he was a hell of a lawyer for that is as close as anyone has every came in my county of residence. He then got me transferred from jail to a treatment facility for my ATR after I jumped bail, which saved my life. Then as we awaited jury trial for months he prepared for the battle of my life, however at the last possible moment the ADA of my county offered his first reasonable plea offer in his 25 years of service or severing however you want to look at it. So i took the misdemeanor plea deal, though I really wanted to see Michael's defense in a Grand Jury Trial scenario. He had a creative, resourceful, and sound defense ready. Much more so then the extremely overpriced lawyers I had in Jury Trials before not to mention other legal proceedings where the lawyers only concern was my money. Hence the title the best money ever spent. Michael essentially saved my life, from legal predicaments to the overall nightmare my day to day life had transformed into after years of darkness and depression.

Recommendation for Michael Yang
Attorney Yang presented himself in a professional manner. He was able to identify the correct approach in defending a charge that was not correct. He brought the circumstantial matters to the court and found a path to reduce the charge.

Good Work!!
Michael is very punctual for the most. Everyone gets tied down but he was there for me even after hours and on weekends. He came through on everything he promised. I did have to compromise some but nothing worth complaining. Overall, Michael is very professional and has great knowledge in what he's doing..
