I had a DUI back in 2008. My mother was kind enough to pull the funds to afford Michael V. Severo and all he did was tell me to plead guilty and showed up to my arraignments on my behalf. Not worth it. It's like getting the fine for the DUI and then tack on thousands to pay for this guy. There was very little communication or advice that he gave us. Just took my family's hard-earned money. I get that I made a mistake, but I actually had hope that we could win our case when Severo took our case. It broke my heart to see my mom pull all the funds together for nothing. Enough so that I am willing to go out of my way to tell other people BEWARE.

Mr.Severo came highly recommended to me from a friend. Once I met with him he was nothing but professional. He took my case and assisted me with a plea deal and I only got probation instead of possibly going to prison. He made my life a lot better once he assisted me.
