4.0 stars 42 totalReview Michael Bialys
Posted by David
I hired Michael to defend me on a first time DUI charge. I will summarize and simply say it was a terrible experience. If any more proof is required, simply look at his responses to negative reviews. His responses are riddled with typos and misspelled words! It seems to me that a high level of detail would be a requirement for any attorney. Do not hire!

BEWARE! TERRIBLE! I hired Michael bialys a few years back and did not have a pleasant experience. He said I had a very strong case and "virtually guaranteed" a dismissal, but all he did was prolong my case which I could have done on my own saving time and money. It was about a year and a half with out my license having to go back and forth to court doing a blood split and all this nonsense that wasn't necessary or beneficial, only costly. If only i would've started the process right away the outcome would've been the same or better. I still had to get a breathalyzer in my vehicle for 5 months and go through driving probation which I would've completed before the case was finally closed due to him prolonging it. He pretty much just took my money and wasted my time.
He took advantage of the short time frame we have after our suspension and used scare tactics against me and my ignorance as a first time offender. Also, I just got hired on at my dream job so I definitely didn't want to lose it. He knew i was in a desperate position and used it against me. He wasn't too expensive but definitely not cheap either. I guess you can say you get what you pay for, but in this case worse.
I wasn't going to hire Michael but he persuaded me saying that he would offer a FREE expungement (included in the price) and now 4 years later he isn't honoring it. I did not get it in writing but I took his word for it because he seemed nice and promised many things.
I recently called his office to get the expungement process started but he tried charging me $850 and his assistant Baloo confirmed that he offered free expungement for certain cases. I don't know how I would've known that unless Michael told me himself when I hired him. I haven't had to hire a lawyer in the past so I didn't I know what to look for. My fault, I know.
Always get it in writing! Don't take his word better yet STAY AWAY! Ask previous offenders for advice before hiring a DUI lawyer. Heck you can ask me I don't care I will share what I learned the hard way. Anything to save you from a rip off. I'm not a lawyer I can only share with you my experience and this one with Michael bialys was terrible.
Please do yourself a favor save yourself heartache, headache, money, and most of all time. Stay away

Michael is a great person and attorney. He will handle your legal situation with professionalism and a unique sense of humor. He's gifted in what he does and will fight for you. Michael has helped me in some of the most difficult times of my life and done it with a smile as well as a genuine heart. I'd recommend him to anyone. Great guy and lawyer.

We were in a situation we have never been in before and did not know where to turn. We called many attorneys and all that was discussed was that this was a no win situation and how much we were going to have to pay for a lawyer. I found Michael Bialys and called. He listened to my situation and reassured me that this would be fine. This was HUGE as, like I said before, our situation was nothing we have ever experienced before, Michael kept our daughter from going to jail and is helping her get her license. His charge was reasonable, and their payment plan was great. He said that we just needed to listen to what he suggested for us to do and everything would be fine. We did just that. Thanks to Michael and his team. Everything he said would happen did. We highly recommend!!

Lawyers are hired because they are meant to be a tylenol. Michael Bialys was food poisoning, in comparison.
I fired Michael after an obscene and unprofessional e-mail "fight" we had. He failed to tell me about deadlines, failed to submit important documents to the court, and every time we spoke on the phone he told me "don't worry." He talks about staying away from scammers online but turns out, HE is the one scamming YOU. He did not do his job thoroughly and failed to let me know important DMV deadlines. I confronted him that he did not tell me about a deadline, he denied it and told me to I must contact him through my new lawyer. Typical scam-artist move. This guy lacks class.
He is unprofessional, unethical, and most of all, he doesn't care about you. He just wants your money. There are lawyers out there who ARE professional, who ARE ethical, and who actually care.
And Michael -- whatever you reply to this review is gonna be more tacky, typical behavior. You can justify whatever you want to your future clients -- whoever reads this review will ultimately decide whether or not they want to hire someone who causes an added headache on top of an already massive headache from the DUI charge.

After being recommended by a dear friend, I phoned the office of Mr. Bialys. After our first conversation, I was relieved and was confident I picked a good team to guide me through the biggest ordeal of my life. Without Michael and his team I would've been lost with all the legal terms, court and DMV dates and filings. The team told me what to expect, what to do and when to do it and they took care of everything else. That's what I needed to move forward and I'm extremely grateful for their support and guidance !

I definitely recommend Micheal Bialys I came to him in moment of need I was skeptical at times and would get frustrated but all and all the end result was just as he promised and I am glad I chose him to represent me .

These lawyer will not take your hand through the process. However he will try to get you the minimum sentencing. He offers a very affordable payment plans which is good. The outcome in my particular case was ok, I would say I am glad I hired him because the consequences would have been a lot higher if I didn't. I am reviewing 3 stars because firstly, Michael himself was only on my last court date sending other people in his crew to all the previous times so I did not appreciate that since he told me he would be the one representing me when I hired me. Secondly, they missed my first court date, and the judge issued a warrant for my arrest, he send someone from his crew to represent me the following day. Thirdly, Michael could be very rude over the phone, and in person sometimes once you hired him.
To sum it all up if you are in a budget hire him as he will get you a better deal than you would get without an attorney.

I was looking at A dui with 3 Counts! Mr. Bialys (The DUI Man) had me start AA immediately, to show the Judge that I was serious about the mistake that I made. He also Had me go to the HAM program. Before court I already had 30 Hrs. in AA. I ended up being charged with only 1 count and Community service. Mr. Bialys always informed me of the next court date and if I needed to attend. He even met with me to answer any questions I had after the fact. I learned my lesson. I would refer him to anyone I know that may make this awful mistake. If you need a good Lawyer who is down to earth and will not judge you, but help you through this difficult time, Call Mr. Bialys, The DUI Man!
