Mr. Randazzo
Mr. Randazzo is one of the best attorney's I have ever seen. I have had the pleasure of meeting with Mr. Randazzo involving a Felony Assault. After meeting with several local attorney's one gave me Mr. Randazzo's name. The attorney stated that she could not handle the case but highly recommended Mr. Randazzo. After meeting with Mr.Randazzo I was confident in my decision. Mr. Randazzo knows his case law. Mr. Randazzo represented me and allowed me to keep my employment, which was my main concern. Mr. Randazzo is a very straight shooter and does not sugar coat anything, this is one of the first things that caught my interest. Mr. Randazzo is very confident in his ability to challenge the system. As with many others my career and life depended on Mr. Randazzo. Without a doubt I would recommend him to anyone.

Wonderful
Michael is a very knowledgeable attorney who saved my company thousands of dollars on a breach of contract defense case. I would recommend him every day of the week and twice on Sunday!

Criminal defense Attorney | Jul 17
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I had the opportunity to work opposite Mr. Randazzo in a criminal matter. Mr. Randazzo is diligent, thoughtful, and easy to work with. I endorse this lawyer."
Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 21
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I met Michael when he was an assistant prosecutor in Crawford County. He was always well prepared, informed on the law, and good in a court room. The thing that impressed me more was his respect for opposing counsel, and his ability to balance the competing interest and find a reasonable end result for both sides. He knows when to stand his ground, and when to understand when the wind is blowing in his face, and he just had a bad set of facts with which to work. My time observing him tells me he will always aggressively represent his clients, while also doing the right thing, and it will be done in a respectful way."
