Review Michael McGlinn

  • The BEST criminal attorney in San Diego

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    If you want the best attorney representing you than this is the firm to hire. Michael McGlinn is well versed with criminal law and is direct and to the point with his communication. His commitment and follow through with my case were nothing short of amazing. Michael responded to my initial email instantly, even though he was in court representing his other clients he took the time to return my call and answer my questions. I was never made to feel rushed or pushed aside. He treated my case with a sense of urgency and his knowledge and years of experience with criminal law made me feel at ease. When faced with criminal charges and not knowing where to even begin, I'm glad I hired the BEST to represent me. Thank you Michael!

  • More Than Just Legal Help...Life Changing Advice

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a client

    Michael McGlinn represented me shortly after I was released from custody. I was charged with the possession and transmission of illegal images. I wanted to get back in control of my life and I didn't know where or how to start. Michael urged me to recognize what I had done was very wrong, but to face the future, and with that in mind suggested I return to college to get finish my degree, and to "give back" to the community. Several years after my initial consultation I met with Michael again to see if we could get my felony conviction reduced to a misdemeanor, we were successful. Recently, Michael represented me as I sought to be removed from the list of sexual offenders, once again we were successful. The advice and representation Michael provided has allowed me to get my life back.

  • Highest Endorsement

    5.0 stars

    Posted by David

    The attorney firm of McGlinn and McGlinn has earned my respect and highest endorsement.
    My arrest and its pending criminal charges might have discouraged other attorneys not willing to work on the case. Their success of my case was achieved through hours of researching case study and the law. Against odds of success, Michael and Ryan were undeterred and prevailed.
    As evident by their success of my case, the San Diego District Attorney's office dropped all charges and my case was dismissed.
    I found their billing procedure honest and reasonable.

    Sincerely,
    David-Brown

    Mr. McGlinn's dedication to this area of the law is the reason we asked for his advice in our case. After our first meeting, it was clear to us that his experience and thorough knowledge was going to give us good guidance and outstanding representation in court. Our case proceeded successfully and I am deeply grateful he was on our side. If I ever know of a family in similar need, I will refer them to him without hesitation.

    I was extremely lucky to have Micael McGlinn as a lawyer!
    I became involved with Child Protective Service (CPS).
    I came from another country and I was unaware of what being involved in CPS could mean.I was very scared and confused and He was able to help me, support me in everything during the process and suggesting the best for my case. Always extremely helpful and willing to answer all my questions or requests.
    I could not find best lawyer that him!

  • Grandchildren Guardianship

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Frederick

    Michael McGlinn helped us on a guardianship case for our grandchildren. I was a little complicated and we had issues with the respondents and the process had potential to drag out for many more hearings than it actually did. He had us file the correct declarations to put us on track to have the temporary guardianship, then permanent. He advised us to do some of the filing of documents ourselves, instead of paying his office from our retainer. Always straight to the point, he won our case with the best possible outcome. I highly recommend him.

  • Michael McGlinn respresentation in Juvenile and Criminal Court

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a Juvenile client

    I have been thoroughly impressed and grateful for the opportunity to have Michael McGlinn represent me in my Juvenile court case as well as in Criminal court. My life would be drastically different if I had not found Mr. McGlinn at the time I did. The skill, insight, and great intelligence he used to fight for me was amazing to witness, and given the outcome of each court session, it was clear that Mr. McGlinn had positively gone beyond what would normally be possible. I could not be more grateful with my experience working with him. He is a strong mentor, that assisted me through a truly harrowing time, as well as made a huge impact on my and my daughter's life because of his navigation of our cases.

  • A very effective, fast-paced, knowledgeable attorney. Highly recommend him for juvenile cases.

    My wife and I had a very difficult case with our teenage son, resulting in a citizen's arrest, juvenile hall, with a variety of legal complications. Time was of the essence as we had to get an attorney to represent our son the following day. We called Michael, and he was immediately available to talk to us, reassure us, and set a meeting at his office for noon the same day. As soon as we presented the case, Michael was very proactive in setting all sorts of actions and plans, and was keeping our case five steps ahead of the district attorney. This fast-pace and cover-all-bases approach that Michael uses, combined with his time-efficiency, make him a great lawyer. I highly recommend him.

  • Outstanding Results

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Patti

    Attorney McGlinn was outstanding. He took a unique approach to a very difficult case. Many other attorneys said there was no hope, but Mr. McGlinn took it on and provided excellent advice and immediately filed the correct papers. Because of him, the entire case turned around and we were successful in a very complex and difficult CPS/guardianship case. His rates were exactly what he quoted at the start and he didn't try to "add time" to get more money. We are thrilled with the results. I would highly recommend him.

  • Great juvenile criminal defense attorney

    5.0 stars

    Posted by a Juvenile client

    I chose Mr. McGlinn after looking at his firm's website; unlike others that were very sensational, his was serious and informative. My son was involved in a juvenile criminal matter, and Mr. McGlinn handled it expeditiously. We did everything he recommended, and got the best possible result (case was sent to Diversion, without having to go to Court). Mr. McGlinn's experience and knowledge were invaluable. Very honest, very forthright, very trustworthy.
