Highly Recommend
I hired Mr. Prince for representation in a serious felony matter. His hard work and dedication in this case gave us the best results and the verdict was not guilty. I would highly recommend him.

Very solid, experienced attorney who goes to bat for clients!
I hired Michael to represent me as an out of state client on a minor trespassing case in Yakima that I wouldn't have had the ability to fight on my own. Even though it likely wasn't worth his time, Michael took the time to help me out tremendously in a tough situation. He provided incredible legal help and got me off without a conviction; all without having to fly out for multiple court appearances. I owe him a major debt of gratitude. As a former public defender, his heart is most certainly in the right place. I would recommend his representation enthusiastically to anyone looking for experienced, committed legal defense!

Michael makes a lot of false promises. On top of everything, don’t expect to get an email or phone call from him period. The only time I spoke with Michael was during the initial consultation, which cost me $125. He did not even contact me before or after my court hearings. What lawyer does that? I trust him to fight for my best interest since I live on the other side of the mountain from where the court case is taking place. There is so much miscommunication going on in his office. I had to order the official court audio hearing to find out what was going on with my case, very shocked to find out he did not represent me and my needs at all. To make things worse, My counter offer to the opposing parties attorney was never sent to me for review. I felt like his office treated my child custody case as a joke, base on the court audio recordings. If you want a good lawyer that communicates with you and fights for your best interest , do not hire Michael or his office. In the end I had to fire him and hire another lawyer. Don’t waste your money or time
