Michael provided me an honest consultation regarding my case and the defense strategies and options available to me. It was the reason I chose him to represent me in my case. From the moment he took my case, we communicated regularly, he gave me sound advice about the legal maneuvers and options and provided great recommendations when there were multiple options. In the end, I received the result I wanted, the case was mediated (I didn't even have to talk to a judge at all) and now I can move on with my life.

Home Run! It was by recommendation I was turned to Michael Stuart and a blessing as well. At the time I was on active duty pending retirement but service connected for PTSD. He worked his butt off defending me and worked diligently to get the military diversion program. He is affordable, no nonsense and doesn't have hidden fees!

He is is extremely thorough and on point in all aspect of the case. I came to him in the middle of a crisis and he picked up the case and put it all in order in no time. He has worked diligently with me to try to find the best resolution and is very prompt. I would highly recommend!

I endorse this lawyer. He is one of the most competent criminal defense attorneys in San Diego. He is diligent, resourceful, and very prompt to respond to his clients. Every referral I have sent Mr. Stuart has absolutely loved him.

On more than one occasion, I've turned to Mike for advise involving the interplay between criminal defense and family law. Mike is highly knowledgeable in both criminal defense and family law and how one can affect the other. Without hesitation, and on behalf of my own clients, I turn to Mike with my tough family/criminal issues, and he has never let me down. I recommend him without reservation.
