We hired Mr. Borges for a difficult felony case. I cannot begin to express my gratitude for his patience, knowledge, and professionalism during this difficult time. He personally returns phone calls in a timely manner, takes his time explaining hard to understand legal jargon, and most of all he does what he says he will do. Mr. Borges knows the law and he will make sure you clearly understand what may or may not happen. No false expectations-yet he will work hard for what he can do in your case. I highly recommend Mr. Borges to anyone facing criminal charges.

Skilled, Knowledgable and Human
We hired Michael Borges during a time that was extremely hard for our family with a case that was not clear-cut. He was extremely honest, straightforward, patient, and knowledgeable about the choices that needed to be made. He didn't try to paint a picture that wasn't reality, yet he did find ways to give us hope with facts. His demeanor is calming and his manner professional, carrying confidence and power. He has hired the perfect receptionist who reflects the values we saw in him. Our family will never regret meeting and retaining Michael Borges.

He is very knowledgable, and straight forward about the outcomes whether is good or bad. He handled my DUI case, and had it reduced, along with no breathing device in my car. He then, just recently helped to get me off probation early. He is highly recommended by myself.

A very patient attorney!
Mr. Borges was very patient with me, and took time to explain everything that was happening. He knows the law really well, and is very sure of himself in the courtroom. I never felt like I was just being hurried through the system. If I ever need a lawyer again, hes the one!
