Mychael Raya did an exceptional job for us when I hired him to represent my brother-in-law. It was a unique situation that the police & prosecutors were handling 'by the book', and rightfully so, but Mychael did an outstanding job conveying the nuances of our case to the prosecutor BEFORE it went to trial. He also was open-minded enough to let me have input on the matter.
So, if I were asked what made the entire endeavor successful, I would say its about relationships.
Mychael did a great job relating to my brother-in-law's dilemma, relating to me in what I was trying to accomplish, and, most importantly, relating to the prosecutor and judge in a way that was successful and brought forth the desired outcome.
I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again if needed, or recommend him to a friend.
