What do you say about a solid lawyer that delivers. Michael and LALG made a very unruly process with the state more than tolerable. In fact, he made it easy. There just aren't people out there anymore like LALG. I can't say enough about how they handled my licensing situation. Great to work with. And when was the last time a lawyer sent you money back. LALG got the job done, under the quote and issued a credit back to our company for the balance on the retainer. Honesty, integrity, and knowledge sum up LALG. My only choice for our company's future protection is LALG.

Michael Claessens & license advocates Group Members make Miracles, I was Facing revokation to my Vehicle sales License, License advocates group save my career & save my family life.
Michael Claessens make the mircale by dismissing DMV accusation against me, DMV were insisting to revoke my Sales License & Mr Claessens Dismiss the case( IT IS A MIRACLE BY ALL MEASERMENTS).
Mike Claessens make a significance negotiations with DMV legal office .
The Law Advocate group Members show the highest level of Honesty & integrity service as Mr Claessens Dismiss my case with only his negotiations with DMV.
Mike accomplished with persuasion what could not be accomplished without expensive and lengthy legal process. It requires great skill to persuade a government agency to voluntarily agree not to exercise its full powers and instead "do the right thing." I must tell that persuasion is all too rarely successful with the government and Mike's accomplishment is a stunning result.
I would recomend law advocate group to any proffesional that facing any discipline action from any government agency , this law firm know how to handle any case & they will get the best result.

I have known Mr. Claessens personally and professionally for many years, and I wouldn't hesitate to send friends of mine to him for help. He is very skilled, genuinely cares about his clients, and works hard to get them the best possible results.

I endorse this lawyer. Mike's answers demonstrate his superb knowledge of the niche specialty of licensing. Many occupations require a license in order to work. Mike will help you get that license and keep it, even in the event of government efforts to revoke or suspend the license. He is one of the few lawyers I would trust to handle a licensing issue.
I endorse this lawyer's work. Mike Claessens is a truly outstanding lawyer. He is scrupulously ethical, thorough in everything, and an excellent critical thinker. His research is wholly reliable; his written motions and P's & A's are effective and compelling. He has superb analytic skills, knows how to cut to the heart of matters while still honoring the fine distinctions that are so frequently determinative. He can keep a dozen projects in full-on mode at the same time, with no corners cut. All that said, he is unsurpassed in negotiations skills. He has that rare gift of negotiating so that the issue is win-win, never gets in his own way in the back-and-forth, and his word is gold.
