Had a moving violation citation that I was worried about - Brian put me at ease, explained his process for how he would be approaching the citation in court, and got the citation dismissed. Well worth the money.

I was arrested, but never charged for alleged public intoxication. The case was never filed, but caused me to lose my Global Entry and experience biased treatment when re-entering the country through border control when I came back from international trips. Brian knew exactly what needed to be done and ended up securing an approval from the arresting police department to seal and destroy my arrest record, thus avoiding court.
On top of that, I have to share that he learned, through a statement I provided him, about a previous lawyer I'd hired right after the arrest. That lawyer was supposed to handle my case when it went to court, which it didn't do within the one year statute of limitations for filing the charges. That lawyer subsequently cut ties with me and said I was good to go, never mentioning the option to have my record sealed and destroyed...and he kept my money. Brian was very upset that another lawyer would act so unethically and wrote that lawyer a letter demanding he refund the attorney fees I paid him. I received a full refund from that lawyer within a couple of days--clearly he knew he was in the wrong.

I had hired another attorney and it was a back and forth thing for over one year then one day he stopped communicating with me. About a week ago, I connected with Mr Michaels and my case is already completed as of two days ago. Mr Michaels was quite thorough and efficient keeping me informed every step of the way. Being professional yet personable there is no doubt he knows his business as well as compassion to care.

Brain, is a great lawyer and I hired him. When I contacted Brian, I was freaked out, I had a traffic citation 36 CFR 4.22 (b) (1) - 'operating a vehicle without due care', in a National park, but as federal laws go it was a misdemeanor. First thing he did was calm me down by reassuring that the case is in good hands. Brian does not try to sugar coat the situation, he gives it to you straight. He took care of all the court paper work, I did not even notice that I had a court case, he drove three hours to the court house and handled the whole thing like a pro. In the end when I was expecting the case to be toned down to a infraction and a fine, he got it dismissed !! Best money I've ever spent on a lawyer. For all those interested in a lawyer who actually responds quickly to your contact, Brian is the one. Text, email or call, he will respond back in under two hours, sometimes in minutes.

Attorney Michaels represented my husband in 4 different gang cases in Los Angeles. Over the course of a year Mr. Michaels worked hard to get my husband home to his family. If he was convicted he would have spent 24 years in jail. Through his contacts with the District Attorney he was able to get 3 cases dismissed and my husband will be getting out on time served. We could not be happier with the selection of Brian Michaels. He saved our family from losing there Dad.

Our case was extremely difficult, and we wanted the best, but expected the worst. Our main concern was avoiding jail time, as there was a minor accident in addition to a DUI charge. There were circumstances surrounding this situation, that did not make this a straight case, and Brian was great at making sure we approached this from every possible angle. Though it was the first offense, we were able to get accepted into a program which will allow the case to be dismissed. I can only attribute the success to Brian's experience, knowledge, and presence in the LA court scene. I'm forever thankful for him representing us, and getting the best possible outcome considering the circumstances. Brian was clear in communicating the best and worst case scenarios, and kept us realistic in what to expect. He really went above and beyond for us in terms of outcome, so we couldn't be happier.

My search for a criminal defense attorney began when my son was arrested twice in one week for repeat of felony charges. They will result in 2 strikes. He is in "big trouble" and he is a young man facing his life in prison.
I spent hours reading the bio's of the candidates I selected, checking into their education and client ratings. Brian consistently kept coming up at the top and always 10 out of 10 client satisfaction.
I contacted him on this web page, got a call back the very same afternoon from him personally. Within the first hour, he pulled my sons charges and reviewed them with me, letting me know from the very beginning that they were of a very serious nature and would be difficult at best.
Brian did not promise miracles, he talked with me ( for an hour and a half) on his own time, no up front fee's or even discussion of the cost involved to retain him.
I was convinced of his knowledge of the law, his compassion for helping other people but, "most of all' listening and hearing what I had to say and my very real concerns.
In 15 days, I have had daily contact with him. We've exchanged phone calls, e-mails and to date 138 texts.
My complete confidence in his ability to represent my son with the best possible outcome has filled my heart with peace. If you are a parent reading this, you understand the value of having the inner calm that comes from knowing that you have done your very best.
It is my honor to recommend with the most heartfelt and highest regard; Brian Russell Michaels!

Mr. Michaels did a wonderful job on behalf of our son, who was arrested during the Coachella music festival and charged with felony resisting arrest. Mr. Michaels worked with us to present extenuating personal health circumstances in a conscientious and compassionate manner. He advocated passionately on our son's behalf, ultimately removing the felony (after a probationary period). We could not have been more pleased with his representation, and heartily recommend Mr. Michaels should the need arise. Thank you!

Brian helped me out big time in a felony settlement case. With the help of his knowledge I have a year of probation and some other guidelines that if I follow I will have the felony dropped to a misdemeanor no questions asked. I cannot thank him enough as I'm young and didn't want that on my record. He is easy to reach tells you how it is and explains things well.
