Our firm also has the resources to handle highly technical and complex cases related to white collar crimes

In terms of post-conviction relief, we offer our clients help in the face of allegations of probation violations and can work to have your record expunged if you wish to clear your criminal record or appeals if you believe you were wrongly convicted or sentenced.

At our office we have a skilled litigator who is willing to walk with you through the process associated with a DUI arrest. This includes fighting against having your license suspended, as well as the many possible DUI penalties associated with your accusation.

We will do the necessary investigations to make sure that your arresting officer had probable cause for initially pulling your car over, and that they accurately conducted the field sobriety tests at the scene. At our firm, we also have extensive experience defending the rights of drivers who are under the legal age and are subject to the “zero tolerance law” as well as commercial class drivers who are facing a DUI charge.

He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was...

"I am so appreciative of the help and support that I received from Michael and his team members! They truly helped me figure out my case and I got outstanding results. If anyone can help you get great results, it’s Michael. I had an immigration issue as well and he worked with my immigration lawyer to help find the best solution. He understood that I made a mistake but it didn’t define who I was. I definitely don’t want to go through any of this again but I’m glad that I had the support to get through this."
