After making a few incredibly ignorant choices back to back, my family and I hired Michael. I was facing two charges, retail theft and underage drinking, and to make it worse, I got these tickets only two weeks apart. He was so knowledgeable and helpful the entire time. It was a very lengthy process, but he did not give up until both cases were non suited, or dropped from my record. He was very persistent in court and never caved in or gave up. The prosecutor wanted to drop the drinking ticket, but keep the retail theft ticket, but Michael would not let that happen. He wanted the best outcome for me, and he made it clear that it did not matter how long it took. After 5 trips to the courtroom, the prosecutor finally agreed to drop both charges as long as I went to one 2 hour class. The outcome was worth the wait. Michael was able to do far more than I accpected him to do. HIGHLY recommended

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 Michael didn't hit a home run, but a grand slam, as I was found not guilty on the DUI and had my suspension rescinded.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.

I was cited for doing 57mph in a 30mph zone. Class B misdemeanor. I contacted Michael Young as a reference from a friend. He told me what he would present to the court in order to reduce the speed to a standard traffic citation and also ask for court supervision. That was exactly how it went. I walked out of court with a standard speeding citation and 6 months court supervision. Of course my clean driving record helped that! He was very up front with everything and was very personable. If there is another need to call a lawyer, hopefully not, I wouldn't hesitate to give Michael Young a call! Thank you Michael Young!!

Michael Young came highly recommended when I was charged with a DUI. I have never been in trouble before and he was extremely knowledgeable and walked me through the entire process. Michael followed through on everything he said he would from the beginning.

Mr.Young got me 6 months supervision and a $500 fine. After getting caught twice within 30 days driving on a revoked. Now after the supervision is done I will be able to get my license back. I will be having Mr.Young help me with that too. Thank you for getting me the chance to get my license back. God bless you.

I got caught driving on a suspended DL for the second time coming home from work. I was facing a felony charge a year in prison and all the that come with that. Michael J Young discovered that my lawyer on my previous case basically did nothing for me except take my money and that the IL Sec of State made errors on my drivers abstract that affected my driving status. He came up with a battle plan and delivered. He fought the IL Sec of State and got me my DL back when I wasn't supposed to get it back until 2019 and saved my life. We met at his office he was pleasant he was honest well spoken and friendly. I felt he wasn't feeding me BS. The second time I went to his office he even let me play his pinball machine to entertain my 18 mouth old son. HE IS THE BEST. Every time I went to court I felt like I was with the smartest person in the room. Getting my DL back lifted an incredible weight off my soul it was and unbelievable feeling when it happen. Michael J Young saved myself my family from much pain. Don't bother with anyone else call Michael J Young first. He is by far the best.

Nothing else to say other than what a miracle worker! Was charged with battery, assault, and trespassing on a off duty police officer. Michael Young pulled out all the stops and from what looked like a losing case, he went to trial with me and not only did he get all charges dropped I didn't have to testify and the judge called out this off duty police officer and embarrassed him in front of the whole court room. Can't thank him enough for being such a professional, honest and up front just tell it like it is approach, and especially ALL charges dropped! Would recommend Michael Young's services to all!

I've used Michael Young a number of times and he has ALWAYS followed through with what he said he was going to do. he was honest from the start and gave no false hope. luckily he has always gotten my cases dropped like he said he was going to do, gave me my chances for success told me to relax and leave it in his hands, just recently he got 2 driving on a suspended and failure to appear on both dropped at district 3 which is the toughest court house. on another case of leaving the scene of an accident with multiple tickets stacked on top of that he dropped. I've used a few lawyers in the past and NONE of them hold a candle to Michael Young. I stand by him 100%
