Client who beat misdemeanor charge of misuse of Handicap Placard
I was wrongly arrested for misusing a handicap placard and the District Attorney charged me with a crime for it! Mr. Michaels went to court and told the DA if they didn't drop it he would take the case to trial for free! He didn't have to since the DA blinked and ended up with a ticket and a small fine. Ridiculous that a D.A would want to put someone in jail for this. Thanks to Mr. Michaels I still have a clean record.
Family member of client who beat his immigration case thanks to Brian Michaels work in vacating his plea.
My brother was arrested at LAX coming back from a vacation. Though he was born in another country he has been in America for 22 years. He had a felony conviction from when he was a kid and was arrested at the airport and held in immigration jail for 4 months. We hired one criminal attorney to file a motion to vacate his plea and save him from getting deported. That attorney failed and we thought all hope was lost until we hired Mr. Michaels and his firm who filed a new motion and saved by brother at the last minute from being separated from his family forever when he convinced the District Attorney to ok the motion and the court went along. Now my brother is a free man, and its all thanks to Brian Michaels.

Client accused of Criminal Violation of Restraining Order. April 2012
Mr. Michaels represented me after my previous attorney botched my case resulting in me going to jail and the threat of longer jail time. Mr. Michaels professional expertise kept me from jail, parried an obviously biased court and handled witnesses with skill and integrity. Mr. Michaels defense was comprehensive and effective. I would recommend Mr. Michaels with no hesitation. I am so very grateful to Mr. Michaels for his commitment and hard work. I hope I never have need for Mr Michaels services again. However, if ever I do need a criminal attorney again, Mr. Michaels will be who I, my family and friends will retain.
Client accused of 2nd time DUI and Probation Violation
Brian was kind enough to work with me at a discounted rate due to my being unemployed and never made me feel like I was getting discounted representation. He not only kept me out of jail but also is helping me clear my record after my community service is completed. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great attorney.
