Review Brian Michaels
  • Successful DUI case

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Emmely

    I couldn't be any happier with my decision to have Brian represent me in my 1st offense DUI case. My career in the National Guard Army was on the line, and after speaking with many lawyers, I felt the most comfortable with Brian. I could sense he had a lot of knowledge and experience with this type of case. On top of that, not only did he work with me with the price, he gave me all the case facts, and never sugarcoated how difficult this case might be. I made the mistake of not reading all of my DVI papers and was unaware of having to call the DVI within 10 days for a hearing. Brian helped me just in time, and was the only lawyer who provided the idea of getting letters from my supervisor, coworkers, and close friends to prove I am a good person who made one mistake, so I would have a fighting chance with the DA. Through the entire process, Brian answered quickly through text and emails to keep me well informed. When the court date finally arrived, with the help of Brian's partner, Daniel Peebles, they were able to work a deal with the DA. The DUI was dismissed and I plead guilty to VC 21710 coasting -- with only a fine of $725 and no probation. My career was saved and I could not thank Brian and Daniel enough for it. There is no surprise why Brian ranks 10 out of 10 on Avvo with 22 client reviews; he does very well to keep up to those ranking.

    Brain said his job is to keep Don (who is accused and charged for years in prison) out of jail, and for each day that Don is out of jail, he is doing his job till the case is settled. Indeed he gave strategies based in his experience and expertise and made counter measures based on calculated risks and helped Don to go to probation rather than jail time. We all appreciate his quick response to our emails and questions, his prompt on the court time in Indio, even that means he has to drive from LA to Indio in hot days. We know that we are in good hands as long as Brian is lawyer in our side.

    Brian Russell Michaels’s response: “Thank you, this one of the most satisfying results I have ever had as a defense attorney. Over long odds, watching Don walk out of the court a free man with his daughter smiling and walking her Daddy out of the building was priceless. I was happy to help and thank you for trusting me.”
  • Highly recommend.

    I had a 9 year old warrant for a felony drug offence I knew nothing about until I was denied a passport and informed by the state department. I had another attorney 3 years earlier try to find any warrants but he found nothing. Brian was able to find where the warrant was from and the case information. He was able to on short notice address the issue, appear with me in court and get my case dismissed. I am happy with the service provided. Brian is a competent and excellent attorney for criminal defence. I highly recommend hiring him if you want the best possible outcome for your particular case.

    Couldn't have hired a better attorney for my case. Was facing 3 years State Prison, and got off on probation. I would highly recommend Brian for any criminal/legal troubles.

    My boyfriend was wrongfully charged with domestic violence. After doing some research we found that these cases are EXTREMELY difficult to fight regardless of the situation. Luckily we found Mr. Michaels and emailed him for a consultation. We were immediately contacted and given straight facts of what we were facing. After hiring him the whole case went seamlessly. He kept in constant contact and was there for any questions we had. Because of his hard work and perseverance, we beat the case! Impeccable attorney is all we can say!

    I contacted Brian a mere few days before my trail and he took the ball and ran with it. The outcome was above what I expected and he was extremely easy to work with given my timeframe. Cant recommend him enough!

  • He made the impossible possible!!

    I am quite confident that NO ONE could have helped us more than Brian Michaels. I feel very fortunate to have found him. My son had gotten a speeding ticket once on his way to the airport to pick me up. Since I was living in Houston while he was in college in LA, we hired someone to represent him for this ticket. Unfortunately, that didn't happen....and when my intuition prompted me to check on the ticket status 2 years later, (I never heard a word from these people)... I was shocked to find out what had happened! I wasn't very encouraged either after researching possible options AND being told by someone at the court that it would not be possible to get what we wanted! But Mr. Brian Michaels made the impossible POSSIBLE and we got exactly what we wanted! My son and I are extremely happy with his work and I would highly recommend him especially if you ever feel you are in a hopeless situation!

    Brian recently got me out of Felony Child Abuse charges in a case with LAPD. I am very grateful to have had Mr. Michaels and has allowed me to now get my children back. Thank you!
