Michael was very professional in the handling of my son’s case involving getting time served for first offense of breaking probation. It was slighty complicated because my son was in Montgomery county where they are very strict with marijuana charges and breaking probation. He was successful in getting time served with another year of probation. Michael was available at all times to talk with me over the phone to answer my many questions. He was also very reasonable with his fees. I highly recommend him.

Definitely Recommended!

Was always available by email or phone conversation. Asked me my opinion and involved me throughout the trial. Very personable and prepared. The best part was the “not guilty ” verdict on all charges ! -Thanks Mr. Benz
