I was arrested for a DUI last year, but Michael destroyed the prosecution's case against me and got it thrown out. I finally understand the difference between a lawyer and a law team. Thanks All.
I thought it was nearly impossible to challenge a DUI charge, but Orange County DUI defense lawyer saved my license and got the charges reduced. Couldn't be happier with the results.
MIchael and his staff got my DUI with drug possession charges dismissed for lack of sufficient evidence and fought tirelessly to do so. Their communication is what I hold most important because it kept me at ease during the whole trial. Strong law firm and recommended.
I've had the pleasure of working with this team for quite a few years. They are talented, brilliant, trusted, and caring attorneys who fight diligently for their clients and get excellent results. Highly recommended.
OC County DUI Defense Lawyers made navigating the judicial system an easy process. I needed to transfer the case from CA to UT which seemed extremely tough based on other attorneys I met with especially since we also had to deal with the DMV. The case was handled smoothly and with top professional guidance throughout. The only regret I have is not contacting them sooner.
They are the best, we met for over an hour to talk about my case, they walked me through the next steps and made sure I was calm and assured throughout the case. Needless to say, the results were fantastic and I'm here now saying my praises.
