  • So glad I had Mike Viscosi

    Mike was great from the beginning of my case until the end. He did not let the system take advantage of me and continuously folllowed up to make sure we had all the info necessary to help my case. He gave me tons of information in order for me to make informed decisions about my case. Mike is the type of lawyer who was always available to answer questions even when sometimes I asked repetitive questions. I never had to talk in court once and mike took care of it all while at the same time having to drive hours to make it to the court room. Could not have asked for a better outcome or a better lawyer. Thanks for securing my freedom

  • An End to A nightmare

    Michael handled my case with high intelligence to find an aggressive, urgent resolve to my 19 month long nightmare. After retaining his firms’ services back in Oct. I began moving forward in an otherwise stagnant situation in which my pursuit of happiness-and free will was in serious jeopardy. He owned my case as if it were his only Client – He Showed me respect and stuck to my case with facts and confidence and with that made me feel confidant and safe in his hands. I awoke today, the day after he handed the DA his head on A platter – with A clear mind and A renewed sense of self awareness. He handled it with out Having to bring it to trial and resolved my issues in under 6 mins -He went into the judges chambers with the DA Like A knight on A crusade with A battle to win -shield and sword in hand he kicked as* and took names. I walked away with A ticket for dark tint. If you have A battle to fight. If your liberties are at stake, I would HIGHLY recommend his services to anyone in this situation…!… He is American Justice. And my nightmare is finally behind me.

  • Life Saver

    Michael Viscosi cared for me like a member of his family. I met Michael by accident at a court appearance, for which I did not have legal counsel. He presented me with his card, and I retained him for my case. After the initial consultation, he would call me, out of the blue, to check up on me to see how I was doing. He knew this charge (DWI) was eating me alive, and assured me he would do the best the law allowed to get me justice. Well after almost a year, today June 25th 2014, he did MORE than that. Michael Viscosi got me what I prayed for from the night of my arrest. My charges were reduced to a traffic ticket, and I now feel free,and that justice was served.I did speak to another attorney before retaining Michael Viscosi. Boy am I glad I listened to the ad on the radio. I hope anyone reading this believes my story, It’s all true. If you have the kind of trouble I had, don’t waste your time and sanity looking for another (bargain) law firm or attorney. Michael Viscosi is the ONLY DWI defense team you need. Trust me!

  • Best Possible Outcome

    My experience with Michael was that of reassurance that everything was going to be okay. He was quick to return my phone calls, and offered guidance and support. He kept me informed of all that was happening, and the possibilities of what could happen.
    I was terrified at the prospect of going to jail, and he told me that’s not going to happen. He did pointed out there was a possibility that I might receive probation, but he was going to fight for me not to get that, and I didn’t. I do have a long laundry list of things I need to do, but given the charges against me, I am very grateful and appreciative all he did for me.

  • Best decision I made for the worst mistake of my life. I did not want a criminal record and Mike fulfilled my wish. Thank you!!!

    Mike did everything I asked him to do. I did not want to be labeled a criminal for the rest of my life for a foolish mistake on my part and he did just that. In three years, well after the fines will have paid, I will have a clean license and no criminal record.Thank you very much!

  • Knowlegdable, confident and tactful

    Knowledgeable, confident and tactful. Mike knew the law and projected that in the court room. I felt that Mike was always one step ahead of the prosecution and would keep it holstered until it would make the biggest impact on the case. More than once he had the prosecuter stumbling and retracting, attempting to justify her statements. Mike is definitely the dominate force in the court room.
    Mike is more than a bulldog in the courtroom. He was personable and comforting throughout the case. Mike strived to minimize the the impact that my legal proceedings had on my personal life. Even after my case was won, he reached out to ensure I was pleased with my cases outcome.
    Mike will fight the good fight for you.

  • Good experience in a bad situation

    Overall I was pleased with the outcome of my case. It is my first (and only) dwi and I appreciate the work by Michael. Going in I had no understanding of the process or details of this kind of law, but Michael explained everything that was going on as it was happening. I was able to get the quick resolution I was hoping for so I can move on with my life and put this experience behind me.
