Mr. Steinberg's varied experience was the primary reason he was hired. His negotiations resulted in a very fair pre-trial disposition of the case - better than imagined. He's professional and compassionate. So simply put - if you want the best attorney in your corner, give him a call and pray he'll take your case. Thank you so very, very much, Mr. Steinberg!

I was recently faced with a situation which presented an imminent existential threat to my family’s emotional and financial security, stability, well-being. I had made a significant series of very irresponsible decisions which led myself and, thus, my family down this terrible path. I was in the midst of legal proceedings for some very serious DUI-related offenses and hopes of any satisfactory outcome had all but faded. My relationship with my original prospects for any plausible defense had floundered following some unfortunate missteps during earlier proceedings and after terminating that relationship I was left on my own as my case neared a dire conclusion. Mr. Steinberg willing accepted an admittedly tremendous challenge when he stepped in late in the game and sought to salvage whatever he could to bring some light back to the end of this long dark tunnel that was rapidly caving in and choking out all hope. When he accepted to provide his services he did so after making it absolutely clear that, while not hopeless, my situation was about as bad as it could be given the circumstances of my case. His candid and professional approach re-instilled in me some confidence that all was not lost. This combined with his extensive knowledge of DUI law and his familiarity and good rapport with the Court and prosecution staff allowed new hope to shine again on what had been an despairing and inevitably negative outcome. Mr. Steinberg pulled off a near miracle when he was able to sway the Court from handing down a certain maximum sentence. He presented the Court and DA with a substantiated account of my genuinely good character and recent life’s accomplishments. He made certain that the Court was aware that I was sincerely remorseful for my actions and that for me this had been a hard-learned lesson which I had indeed came to understand as an opportunity for last change for the better in my life. In a case which was nearly impossible to offer viable defense, Mr. Steinberg was able to obtain the best outcome that could be reasonably expected and breath hope back into my own and my family’s life. Thank you very much Mr. Steinberg, I will forever be grateful for having you in my corner on this one.

After lengthy research and references I decided to retain Michael to represent me in a DUI charge. I based that decision on Michael’s experience as a prosecutor and knowing that he would be working on my case personally, and not trickling the work down to less experienced attorneys.
In my case the consequences were life altering, as I have 2 previous DUI convictions from when I was a younger man about 25 years ago. The court didn’t care that I had a spotless driving record for the last 20 years, and they wouldn’t offer any reasonable plea agreement (6 months in jail), so I was forced to go all the way through trial. Fortunately there were some extenuating circumstances in my case, which Michael Identified, and was able to present eloquently to the DMV to win my appeal to keep my license, and then later convince a jury of 6 that I was not driving during my incident. Not Guilty, Not Guilty, Not Guilty!
I won’t mislead and say that any step of the process is warm and fuzzy. For me It was an incredibly long stressful year, and the anxiety and stress of a trial is brutal, but I feel extremely fortunate and humbled by Michael’s legal brilliance and his off-the-charts work ethic and dedication to my case. I know his time on my effort far exceeded a normal case, and that he went far above and beyond the amount of services that he could have justifiably charged me.
I’ll conclude with a quote I made to my wife after the first day of trial “I’m so glad Michael is on our side and not prosecuting this case against me”.
A sincere thank you to Michael from the core of my soul. I feel like I have a fresh start in life - Ray
