Real Lawyer
Mr. Engel was the third lawyer on my case. The judge respected what he had to say. The two "lawyers" before him promised everything and delivered nothing just tried to get me to say I was guilty. When you need a real lawyer, you need to call Shyler.

Great Lawyer, Better Person
Shyler is literally a miracle worker. I got in trouble for an MIP for drinking. Going to school to be a doctor, it is scary to have a criminal record. I was terrified for my future. I called Shyler, and he calmed me down, said that I will be fine, and gave me his game plan on how he would take care of this case. I hired him immediately. And he did everything he promised, even exceeded my expectations. He is knowledgable, talented, and dedicated. He made the best of a bad situation. He took the stress off my head. If anything were to happen again, I would call Shyler without hesitation not only because he is a great lawyer, but because he handles cases wholeheartedly.

Makes everything easy.
I have owned rental homes in Michigan for more than 30 years. I have gone through almost more than a dozen attorneys over the years. Mr. Engel is diligent and effective. He continues to surprise me with his knowledge and professionalism especially at his young age.

Great lawyer and great Person
I hired Shyler for my son. My son had been arrested for growing marijuana. Shyler got my son out of jail the next day and got my son a huge break. He won't even have a record. It was important because he wants to go to college. He will never do it again.

Best lawyer ever!!
When I got caught with marijuana, I thought id be in jail or taking drug tests forever. Shyler told me he could get it dropped and did exactly that and got my bad charge dropped.

"Shyler is an incredible academic and outstanding attorney. Shyler has assisted me on some incredibly technical facets regarding new legislation and pending legislation and is on the front line of being in the know.

Family Attorney | May 06
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I handled a domestic relations case where Mr. Engel served as opposing counsel. It was a very tough case. Mr. Engel worked his butt off for his client, pushing my client and me to our limits. The case could have easily got out of control but after many back and forth negotiations the case ended in pretty fair result for all. I endorse Mr. Engel because he made my life very difficult during our case. That is what an opposing counsel is supposed to do! On a side note, during my dealings with him, I also learned that he is a marijuana law mastermind."
