Respectable, professional, reliable, honest, and always on time. Not once did I ever had to question or second guess whether or not he was the right lawyer. He kept me updated with what was going on with my case. Any concerns or questions I had he was willing to listen and made sure that it was address. Thank you for assisting me and my family. You are truly amazing.

Absolutely loved working with this company! Michael personally handled my case with outstanding results and dedication. They kept me informed updated in as involved as I needed/wanted to be and work with me on areas where I needed help such as payment information and questions about how to handle the situation after the court hearing.If I had to choose again I would pick the same company to represent me.

I could not have asked for a better attorney... with Michael Kern you have knowledge, power, and compassion on your side. With good reason, Michael was strongly recommended from an employee of the San Diego Court House. From the very first meeting to the last hearing, Michael fulfilled every word and we achieved our goal.
The process of needing and acquiring an attorney was new to me. Michael took care of every concern and question that rolled through my anxious mind; in doing so helps to relieve what stress one may be under. It felt as if he was family, someone to help you when you are in dire need.
A goal was initially set at our first meeting and step-by-step we achieved it. If a new hurdle arose, a new plan to overcome it would be devised and one-by-one each task was accomplished. At no point in time did I feel overwhelmed with the process. Michael's experience really shines through in his methods.
When it was required, Michael was aggressive and tenacious when resolving. He knew what to do and when to do it. In my case, there were usually options that he would devise and present with his suggestion as to what might have the best potential outcome pertaining to a charge.
Michael fought for my freedom and I am ever so grateful for his hard work. Extraordinary results and utmost satisfaction. Thank you once again Michael.

From the first day speaking to Michael over the phone, he thoroughly asked me questions about my situation getting to know me and my new case. He was professional and friendly, and we soon met, which led to making him my lawyer. Michael Kern has performed excellent service the entire time we have worked together, and he is very knowledgeable about all things pertaining to the law. I would recommend his assistance to anyone I know who got into trouble of some sorts and requires a great lawyer.

In September of 2013 I got arrested for a DUI. I got into an accident while driving a friend home and I blew a .09 when CHP arrived. More importantly my passenger was severely injured as a result breaking 6 ribs, broken sternum, broken clavicle, fractured vertebrae, fractured hip, and nerve damage in her arm. The DA charged me with everything they could, Felony DUI resulting in Great Bodily Injury, and a Strike on my record. I was facing a possible 6 year prison sentence.
I hired Michael Kern from a recommendation and I'm very glad I did. Michael was very knowledgeable on DUI cases, and assured me in our first meeting that he would do everything in his power to help me. He listened to my side of the story and immediately started breaking down the case against me. He gave me hope that I would be OK when I was very unsure what was to come.
Michael was able to keep me from getting booked at my initial hearing, the first small victory. Since I never was booked due to being injured myself, I figured it was something I had to do, but Michael was able to have me released on my own recognizance.
In the following months and court appearances Michael was able to negotiate with the DA and have the Great Bodily Injury and the Strike on my record removed as part of a plea bargain. I still pleaded guilty to the Felony, but the charges and time I was facing was less severe. As part of the deal I can still get the Felony dropped to a Misdemeanor once restitution is paid to the injured party.
At my sentencing hearing I was ready to serve a mandatory sentence of at least 96 hours in custody as part of the plea deal, but Michael got that lowered to a book and release! Meaning I would only be in custody for a few hours. Not only that but I was sure that I would be receiving Formal Probation where I have a Probation Officer I have to report to every month, but Michael was able to get it dropped down to summary probation, which is much less intrusive if at all.
All in all I feel like Michael pitched a perfect game with my case. Yes I still have a Felony but I only have myself to blame for that, and I have the chance to get it dropped to a Misdemeanor. Without Michael's help I believe the outcome of my case would be very different. I would definitely recommend Michael to anyone facing DUI charges, and I would certainly use Michael's services in the future if I need to. Thanks again Michael!

I called Michael kerns office the morning of my court hearing. He was able to to help me out and honestly took amazing care of my case. He was exactly what I wanted in a lawyer, respected by his peers, efficient, and was able to get me out of a hot mess that I created for myself. I highly recommend Michael for any legal service he provides, he will only take your case of he knows he can give you the time and effort it needs and deserves. I couldn't be happier with the outcome, I've learned lesson.

This was my first time ever in need of a lawyer. At first I was very skeptical about hiring one, but my fellow co-worker had used Michael Kern before and had nothing but good to say about him. I gave Mr. Kern a call and talked about my situation. He told me everything that he would be doing for my case, if I was to choose to have him fight my case. I'm active duty in the military and have a VERY tight schedule, let alone be dealing with outside legal affairs. Mr. Kern straight up told me that: (He wasn't doing his job if i had to appear in court ONCE!). I thought that seemed impossible, I was in for a big surprise. Not only did I never once step foot in a court, it was the most mind and stress relieving legal process I have ever had. It helped me take care of my military career and look towards the future instead of dwelling on my case. I've already let a close friend know about Micheal Kern and has helped him out exactly like me. I highly recommend Michael D. Kern to anybody in need of legal advice or help. His technical knowledge and years of experience are shown immediately when you walk into his office, he looked deeper into my case than I ever dreamt was possible.

Mr. Kern was a real benefit to me in my legal proceedings. He represented me in a way I hope that everyone would experience. He took the time to explain things I was unfamiliar with in the court system and kept me calm in what could have been a very stressful experience.
Mr. Kern's experience in the legal field was demonstrated in his outstanding representation of me in a fair and precise manner. I would highly recommend him and would use him again if the need arose.

Strategic is the word I would use to describe Michael Kern. He is the best! He is a great communicator, and keeps you in the loop of what the next steps will be, every step of the way. I highly recommend Michael Kern for any legal matters you may have.
