Once retained Michael will immediately begin work on your case. This will include obtaining police reports, arrest reports, and other necessary evidence. If necessary we will hire an investigator and visit the scene of the incident to gather additional facts so that a defense can be built on your behalf. Your case will be handled by your attorney and you will deal with him directly. Contact us online or by telephone.
