Great Lawyer!
He did everything he said he’d do. Very professional and a very good lawyer. He does what’s best for you unlike some attorneys. Definitely recommend him.

Criminal defense Attorney | May 19
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Michael is an excellent attorney that I have known in practice for many years. He is also very passionate and empathetic with his clients."
Criminal defense Attorney | Sep 02
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I remember working with Mike on a big mortgage fraud case in Fresno. All of the top local lawyers represented someone in the case. When it came time to file motions to dismiss the charges it was Mike who took the lead. Every one of the attorneys just ended up using what Mike had written in arguing to get the case dismissed, which it was. That shows you what kind of lawyer Mike is and how much he is respected by the local defense bar."
