Mike represented me in an at-fault accident. Even though I pled guilty before consulting him he was able to vacate my plea and successfully defend me. Mike made sure I did not lose my house.

I was charged with a DUI and my driver's license was suspended. I hired Michael Young to defend me. The state's case was extremely solid with a damaging video of extremely poor driving. Michael didn't hit a home run, but a grand slam, as I was found not guilty on the DUI and had my suspension rescinded. Michael has vast courtroom experience, a superior knowledge of the law, and demonstrated a logical, practical and strategically superior approach representing me against the state. He succeeded in securing 2 very key stipulations with state's attorney, and was effective in obtaining key information from the arresting officer which proved to be the deciding evidence in the judge's ruling. If you need representation from a defense attorney look no further. Michael Young is a winner.

I caused a car accident in 2015 and Michael professionally handled my case. He kept me updated on every step in the process and didn't give me empty promises. When he was not sure about an outcome, he would honestly inform me. I was pleased with his prompt responses via phone and e-mail even during off hours. He was always available to see me in person when I needed more reassurance about the case. He is very knowledgeable and has a calm, professional demeanor. Even a year after when I needed more help on my case, he was willing to assist me at no cost. I would highly recommend him.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have known Michael Young for several years and have seen him in action in court as opposing counsel. He always aggressively represents his clients to get the best result possible. A great choice for anyone facing a traffic or criminal court case!
