Hit and run citation
Michael represented me in a dui case that also involved a hit and run citation. I was facing fines of several thousand dollars, loss of driving privileges and potentially, incarceration. Michael was able to consult with the prosecutor and successfully convey the circumstances surrounding the situation. I ultimately was able to enter a diversion program for the dui and plead guilty to a reckless driving charge. Michael was not only able to keep me from being convicted of a felony but also relieved me of the anxiety I faced regarding this matter. I highly recommend him and he will be my first contact if ever again I require a criminal attorney.

He stood up for me when I needed him the most. The case In which he defended me I was certainly facing time in jail. He was able to eliminate my large fines and keep me out of jai. I would recommend his services to anyone.
