Stay Amazing
I had some issues and I needed a lawyer, I started to call different lawyers around Maricopa and most of the lawyers either were asking for SO MUCH money just to take advantage of the situation. However, I got ahold of Michelle and she assured that I will be helped, she didn’t rip me off like the other lawyers were quoting me on my need. She was very honest and fair, she took my case, made sure everything was dropped/dismissed, and resolved my issues with the law. Very professional, best lawyer in Phoenix. Thank you so much Michelle

Great attorney for DUI!
I had two days after being arrested for a DUI to get back into court for my appeal. I called Michelle on a Sunday and she called me back within an hour. The process of waiting for my my police report, meeting with the prosecutors, and then finally getting a court date can seem like forever. Michelle worked as diligently as she could and allowed the process to go much easier. Having an attorney to help and explain things along the way is completely worth it! Doing this alone I would not have accomplished what Michelle did. She reduced my jail time immensely and my fines are a fraction of what they should have been. I'd say hiring her was the best choice I made!

Awesome attorney
I hired Michelle for representation for a criminal misdemeanor case. She fought aggressively on my behalf throughout the entire time the case was pending. I ended up going to trial and was extremely impressed by her litigation skills. She destroyed the witnesses that testified and I was found not guilty. I can now move on with my life without a criminal record. I recommend Michelle if you ever find yourself in a bad situation. She is incredibly skilled and I'm glad that I did found her.

Brilliant attorney!
Ms. Bell was a wonderful choice as an attorney who delivered an incredible defense due to her diligence and expertise which resulted in the dismissal of my DUI case. She helped me feel at ease with an unfamiliar and terrifying process by corresponding with me regularly to which I am forever grateful.

DUI/Prejudice Diligence
First off I want to thank Michelle Belle for her exceptional performance in the courthouse. After being convicted for a DUI in 2013 and waiting trail for almost 5 years my case was resolved. I can assure you a responsible motivated attorney like Michelle can help resolve your problem with minimal effort. Prejudice diligence is something that is not argued often. Don’t let the states lack of work ethic convict you of something years after. I can tell you that hiring Michelle will assure you the best opportunity against your case.

Avengers: DUI Defense
Michelle is THE BEST. She is a super hero lawyer! I met with other top lawyers in criminal law and Dui and was so lucky to have found her. She made everything simple and prepared an amazing case. I fell asleep while driving on my way to feed my dogs early in the morning because my parents wanted me to watch the house for the weekend. I ran my car off the road and was charged with DUI. The police officer met me at the hospital and took my blood which came out to a BAC of .09. We had a terrible first plea deal that charged me with a dui and I would have to use an interlock device and spend $1,900 in fines with alcohol classes, suspended license and traffic survival school. As Michelle got ready for trial and found a few things that could help my case she was able to get the prosecutor to give me a new plea deal. Ended up with a conforming reckless charge and no interlock device with only one day in jail (just going to be positive and think of it as a bucket list item) and 15 hours of community service. Michelle was amazing at updating me whenever she found something new and was super organized. If you are online right now looking for a lawyer stop what you’re doing and schedule an appointment with Michelle. I highly recommend .

Professional and Fantastic!
Michelle was recommended by a friend and I'm so glad that I found her. Michelle was very attentive from beginning to end with my case. Although she could never promise anything, she worked diligently to get me the best possible outcome the entire time. I was very happy with the outcome of my case and could move on with my life.

Fantastic Job
Michelle is an excellent attorney, who handled my case with efficiency and absolute professionalism. Her research into the details of my circumstances was very thorough, and resulted in a best case scenario for me. With a .14 reading, I ended up with a plea to reckless driving, and under $1000 in fines. I sincerely could not have hoped for a better outcome. I don't often write reviews, or give something a 5 star rating, but the work Michelle Bell did for me was outstanding, and I highly recommend her services to anyone who may be in need.

4 year old DUI dismissed
We contacted Michelle after becoming aware that the State had issued a warrant on a 4 year old case with charges of DUI and falsifying a police report. Michelle was expedient in getting the warrant quashed, and then once quashed worked diligently on the case. She was communicative throughout the case of necessary information for my defense and a reassuring voice of reason during an extremely trying time. She was able to successfully get the case dismissed, and we are extremely thankful for her understanding, communicativeness, and diligence in handling our case. We recommend Michelle highly!

Excellent Representation
I received a DUI and blew under the legal limit of .08. I hired Michelle to represent me. She went over every aspect of my case with me and gave me options. She was able to get it reduced to a Reckless Driving ticket w/ a 250.00 fine and a 16 hr online DUI course. She gave me the option to take it to trial to try to get it dismissed. I was happy with the Reckless Driving ticket and declined the option to go to trial. She is very personable and has a great personality. You get the feeling that other court personnel have a high opinion of her as well. I would fully recommend Michelle to anyone that has a need for a lawyer.

Marijuana DUI
Words cannot express the gratitude I feel towards Michelle. During a road trip to the Grand Canyon (I'm from CA), me and my best friend were pulled over for speeding in Yuvapaei County. The cop smelled weed (I have a CA medical license) and I was asked to do field tests. I did everything the cop requested, including giving up all of the weed I had in the car, but was placed under arrest for a DUI marijuana charge. I was charged ultimately for FOUR misdemeanors (speeding, DUI- marijuana, marijuana possession, and marijuana paraphernalia). I spent 36 hours in jail. Once I returned home, I spent hours trying to find a lawyer that would help me. After speaking with at least 10 lawyers, Michelle was literally the only one who thought I had a case (especially since I had my medical marijuana license). Following my arrest, they tested my blood (which later, they only found with carboxy THC - which is not something the prosecutor can proceed on). They presented a 2x misdemeanor DUI plea, with a threat of a felony. After speaking with Michelle, I decided to challenge the charge. Michelle went over and beyond, filing over a 40-page motion during Christmas. Her confidence and determination was EVERYTHING during this time. She spent HOURS interviewing everyone for this case and I am so grateful our worlds crossed paths. (Turns out you can own, smoke, but cannot possess marijuana vape pens - weird right?!). MIRACULOUSLY, because of the work Michelle did, all of my charges were dropped. ALL OF THEM. Michelle literally saved my life, and I couldn't be more grateful.

Nothing short of a miracle
I hired Michelle for my 22 yr. old son who was facing his 2nd DUI (super extreme) and hit and run. He was looking at 180 days in jail and thousands of dollars in fees. Driving was out of the question for a few yrs. Michelle worked hard to get him a plea for 90 days. Serve 48 consecutive in jail, followed by the remaining as work release so he would not lose his job. The day we met in court, a true miracle was granted to us by God's grace when she managed to get him a plea of no time in jail and a huge reduction in the fees he would pay. And a chance for MVD to reinstate his license with an interlock device requirement at some point. When we first hired Michelle, I was struck with so much anxiety and fear for my son's future. She had to remind me, more than once, that this is a long process and patience was needed. I left her alone to do her work and work she did. She is without a doubt an extremely talented and well experienced attorney I would not hesitate to highly recommend.

Wonderful defense.
Found Michelle online, got in contact with her right away. Once all the minutiae of the hiring process was finished, she explained the normal processes for my charge, and the odds in great detail. Made me feel very at ease with my situation.

She's amazing!
I was recently pulled over for criminal speeding and immediately contacted Michelle after reading her wonderful reviews online. She immediately took my case and met with prosecutor in my place. That alone was a huge time saver. She instructed me to write a narrative about who I am, what I do for my community, and why I was speeding. It all worked! The prosecutor allowed me to take defensive driving, which I did, and the case was dropped. Without her experience and guidance I don't know what I would have done. I'm so thankful for her help and would recommend her to anyone who needs a defense attorney.

Outstanding Lawyer!!!
Michelle Bell was an outstanding lawyer who helped me fight my case and went above and beyond to do everything and anything she could to not only help me personally, but to help win my case. Even from the very beginning when the case looked bad, she was very upfront and honest with me about everything and always had options and solutions to any and all issues that arose. My case included charges for reckless driving and went to trial. The first trial ended up as a mistrial, and Michelle was now fighting my case for me against the state to avoid having a re-trial. From day one after meeting with Michelle, she was already working on my case thinking and strategizing what plans and actions would work best in my favor. Michelle worked with me directly and always did her best to keep me up to date and informed on what the next steps were to be. She truly cares for her clients and is willing to do all she can to help and was always more than happy to meet with me whenever I needed. Despite the fact that I was charged in a completely different county all the way up north in Superior, Michelle still continued to do all she could for me, including making trips to Superior Court when necessary and making countless phone calls to save us both trips up there whenever possible. She takes the time to guide you through all the steps and processes involved with your case, as well as breaking down all the legal information that was so overwhelming. Michelle also took the time to meet with me prior to going to the trial and helped to prep and prepare me on what to expect. She did everything she could to help me feel better about my case and to better understand what all my options were in regards to the outcome of my case. Finding a lawyer that I felt I could trust and would truly help my case was an ongoing struggle not knowing what or who to believe. Other lawyers that I had met with prior did not have the same passion and concern that she did for me and my case. Had it not been for Michelle, the outcome of my case would have without a doubt been far worse, but with her help she was able to win my case and had the whole thing dismissed. I cannot thank her enough for all the help and support she had provided me in my time of need. I would be more than happy to refer Michelle Bell to anyone in need of a trustworthy, dependable lawyer. Trusting Michelle Bell for my case was the best decision I could have ever made.

The ONLY attorney I will call!
Michelle Bell was the first attorney I ever had and honestly, I can say she will be the ONLY attorney I want representing me if things go bad once again. To be honest, I’m glad I chose her from the beginning and let me tell you why just to give you an idea of how this selection came to be. The process began back in January of this year and keep in mind that the case was finally ended yesterday 8/12/17 with ALL CHARGES DISMISSED! The reason why I chose Michelle Bell was not only because of the AMAZING reviews about her on Avvo and even her own site, but because she was the ONLY one who took the time to listen, call me back, as well as give me reassurance that there was still hope when all seemed lost for me. I must have called ten different attorneys’ offices only to be told that I would get a callback, look out for an email to fill out, the attorney is out of the office, they didn’t have time to talk because they were going to the Cardinals game…you name it, I heard it all that afternoon. It wasn’t until I came across Michelle Bell whom I decided to give a call hoping to at least get some sort of consultation over the phone and guess what….I did! She was driving back from someplace east representing another client where the reception was pretty bad but even with all that going on, she took down my information and promised to give me a call back within 25 minutes of less. The call was received and the situation was described over the phone of what took place the night prior which resulted in me being charged with Assault and Criminal Damage. She gave me a few details of what to expect, she asked me specifics about the events that happened and she also wanted to meet up the next day being a Sunday of all days. After our first meet, the arrangements were made about her representing me in court with my pretrial hearing as well as throughout the whole case until it was resolved. The process took quite some time spanning over seven months because the prosecutor did not want to budge with a fair deal that was right for me. At times I grew impatient expecting things to come quick but they didn’t. Michelle always reassured me that when any updates come around, she would let me know and she did. I did bother her a few times expecting things to go faster but they didn’t. When she tells you to let her do her job and that she is getting things handled, she means it. Back off and let her concentrate and focus on the case ahead because that is the biggest picture. I never regret hiring Michelle because she was not only knowledgeable about the law, she was fierce with a don’t back down kind of attitude that I knew was going to win our case if indeed it did go to trial and it did, bench trial. I would recommend Michelle Bell to anyone I know going through criminal matters and needs representation from an experienced and motivated attorney.

Highly Recommended
I made a mistake by deciding to get behind the wheel after drinking. Someone hit me and although it was clearly their fault, I was taken into custody due to probable cause of DUI. I got ahold of Ms. Michelle Bell. She met me at my convenience and was extremely professional and confident. Ms. Bell worked very hard for me and kept me up to date with calls, texts, and emails every step of the way. Ms. Bell might be young, but she came thru for me better than other more expensive lawyers that gave me much less expectations of the outcome. I highly recommend Ms. Bell to anyone needing a lawyer that really cares and has your best interest in mind. Her fees are more than reasonable for the quality of help and piece of mind.

A Very Talented and Extremely Sharp DUI Trial Attorney
I was charged with 2 DUIs resulting from a single-car roll-over accident off of a freeway. I was looking at going to jail for up to a year, 5 years of probation, a revoked license for one year, classes and screenings, and a big fine (not to mention my car insurance skyrocketing) for wrecking my car in the desert off a freeway. I've never had someone fight as hard for me as Ms. Bell and I'm so thankful I hired her. She was able to get the charges reduced to a reckless driving with a $250 fine! No probation, no classes, no interlock, a one day suspended jail sentence and one year of unsupervised probation. So much different than the plea the prosecution was offering. I wasn't arrested or even given a ticket but the state took my blood from the hospital without a warrant anyway and charged me with 2 DUIs and I was in a lot of trouble! Ms. Bell's legal expertise was the only reason why I wasn't forced to accept a plea that would have affected me for many years and cost me a career. The prosecutor was completely unreasonable and unwilling to work with me so we took the case to trial. This is where Ms. Bell's legal expertise shined. The trial resulted in a mistrial because the prosecution continually violated my right to a fair trial. Ms. Bell demanded, then fought for the mistrial and got it! As a result of the mistrial she was able to negotiate both DUI charges to a simple reckless driving charge with nothing to do with DUI penalties or fines! She knows the law. She knows the processes and she knows how to fight for her clients. She doesn't just fight though. She fights to win! I highly recommend Ms. Bell to anyone who reads this. She is truly an amazing lawyer!!!! I couldn't be happier with her and how hard she worked and fought for me. A true blessing!!!

Fair, Honest, and Dedicated Criminal Defense Lawyer
Arizona has zero tolerance policy for domestic violence, in other words even if you are not the aggressor, the police can will likely make an arrest if there is probable cause to believe any bodily injury occurred to either party. When my husband assaulted me, l had no idea calling the police to help diffuse the situation would result in me being arrested and charged with Assault-Intent/Reckless/Injure and Disorderly Conduct-Fighting. Unfortunately, one month later, he assaulted me again, this time he turned himself in to the police, but to my surprise, I was arrested again and charged with another Assault-Intent/Reckless/Injure. The events that took place shattered my life leaving me devastated and traumatized as I was facing possible jail time, fines, and court ordered counseling to name a few. Michelle was an absolute blessing! I am so fortunate to have found such an honest, genuine, and exceedingly knowledgeable attorney for my legal representation. Michelle was receptive to my situation and though our conversation was brief, it was very detailed, and before the conversation was over, she already had a strategy. I would follow-up our conversation with an email detailing the events that took place and from there forward Michelle took charge. Michelle managed to get both cases scheduled for trial in the same timeframe. On the day of the trial, I was just about ready to walk out the door and head over to the courthouse when Michelle called and told me that the state had attempted to get a continuance however the judge was in agreement with her and dismissed both cases - one with prejudice and the other without prejudice – I had not even left for the trial and it was already over! A few months later though the state decided to refile the case that was dismissed without prejudice, as soon as I learned of state's actions, I immediately contacted Michelle - once again, she would schedule the case for trial. The day of trial finally arrived and this would be my first time meeting Michelle in person and I have to say she is one of a kind. Michelle is so personable, she had a genuine concern about my situation, and she was successful in getting the case dismissed, this time with prejudice. The state tried to continue the case but Michelle mentioned a ruling that was made in a previous case and the Judge was in agreement with her again! Michelle is a fair, honest, and dedicated criminal defense lawyer – I would definitely recommend Michelle to anyone in need of legal representation. She is truly a blessing!
