Fresno Criminal Defense Attorney
"Dear Mr. Mitchell,
We want to thank you again very much for helping to bring justice for us. It's hard to describe how much we appreciate what you did."
-Mr. and Mrs. J. and S. C., Fresno, CA
"This past year 2006, I needed legal assistance. With no experience or any clue as to where to start, I decided to hire an attorney. I spoke with a few attorneys in the area and then called The Law Office of Michael E. Mitchell. I was immediately impressed with the fact that Michael E. Mitchell himself returned my call. A couple of days later we met and discussed my situation. Mr. Mitchell did some extensive research and called me back with a viable solution to my problem."
Today, I'm pleased to say, 'Thank you, Mr. Mitchell, I was extremely pleased with your professionalism you and your staff displayed, and the extraordinary ability in resolving my personal matter.'
Again, thank you and should I need your services again, I'll know your only a phone call away."
-R.C. Fresno, CA. (Helped client remove firearms restriction via motion to Superior Court so that he could pursue career in law enforcement.)
"Mr. Mitchell did an outstanding job. Mr. Mitchell systematically tore the States case apart by professionally cross examining the CHP Officer with regard to the stop. Having been in Law Enforcement for over 15 years, I have had my share of cross examinations by the defense and I can say without hesitation that Mr. Mitchell's handling of my case was one of the best that I have ever witnessed. He had a strong understanding of my case, the facts and more importantly of the California Vehicle Code. Mr. Mitchell's representation was of the highest caliber and I am fortunate that I had him as my attorney."
-M.K.P, Porterville, CA, former police officer, motion to suppress all the evidence in the case granted.

-M.S.J, Escalon, CA, License reinstated following successful DMV hearing, DUI case reduced to wet reckless driving.
"The first time I spoke to Mike on the phone, I could tell he was thorough and caring. But I found out what character he had when he took my case. For one thing, I never had to call him, he always beat me to it. I have never worked with an attorney I didn't have to make 10-20 calls to get to him. I was fortunate to have Mike because of my disabilities. Mike made it possible. I never had to go to court. He called me directly after each appearance for me and let me know the outcome and made an educated guess of what might come next. I cannot say enough about this, well spoken, well educated and caring man. He is the best."
-D.B., Madera, CA, License reinstated following successful DMV hearing, DUI case dismissed.
"Needless to say, I was scared and devastated when I found myself having to face a judge. Many thoughts ran through my mind.....mainly wondering how I was going to get through this 'unwanted' situation. I feel blessed that I came across Mr. Michael Mitchell. "Mr. Mitchell was compassionate to my situation, and made me feel at ease. He was always prompt and met all required court appearances. I felt more than confident putting my stressful situation in his hands. The outcome was a very positive one. There was NO WAY I could've handled this by myself. I never felt Mr. Mitchell looked down at me, or made me feel more humiliated than I already was. His approach is courteous, kind, understanding, and very professional. It it without hesitation that I recommend Michael Mitchell for any of your legal situations."

I am taking this opportunity to place on record my profound gratitude to you for handling my DUI case successfully. You were thoroughly professional in the way you went about the whole matter. It is something that my family and I will never forget. Your assistance has been invaluable during this very difficult time. without a doubt I will recommend future clients to your law firm."
-Mr. A.V., Los Angeles, CA, Felony DUI with Injury and Enhancements reduced to misdemeanor DUI.
"I got into some trouble late last year (2007) and I decided to hire the best lawyers that I could have found- because had I not, I would have lost my career and my future in the armed forces. I was facing a situation with almost insurmountable odds but I decided to hire Mr. Mitchell's law firm and I was shown the most excellent results that anyone could have hoped for - it was dismissed! I would recommend this to anyone that is in dire need of legal help especially if you have no idea where to turn. This turn of the situation had shown me exactly what I have, and what I could've had happen to me if things went wrong. So now I got another chance for my future and I thank you again Mr. Mitchell."
-Mr. K.H., Seaside, CA, motion to suppress illegal vehicle stop granted, DUI case dismissed.

"Michael Mitchell represented my friend and did a fantastic job. As soon as I contacted Mr. Mitchell and he agreed to take the case he jumped right in and was on the job and followed through all the way until the end. He made himself available for any questions or concerns that I may have had. I would definitely use him again and I also highly recommend him for anyone needing great Lawyer!"
-Ms. JA, Dos Palos, CA, retained our office to for representation of federal felony, illegal firearm possession charge, dismissed following successful negotiation with U.S. Attorney.
"Shortly after my arrest for suspicion of DUI, I contacted Mike Mitchell in regards to legal representation. He and his staff immediate took appropriate actions to prevent the suspension of my license and to prepare for the court litigation. Mr. Mitchell pinpointed the weaknesses in the prosecutions case and was able to successfully suppress the evidence against me. My court case was dismissed and I was saved from having a criminal record. My family and I can't thank you enough for through and out of such a difficult situation. If anyone tells you (like they did me) that hiring an attorney is a waste of money, contact Mike before you make a decision... It could mean the difference between winning your case or having a criminal record for the rest of your life.
Thanks again for everything Mike!"

"This is one attorney I would highly recommend. He is very professional and treats you with compassion and kindness. He is an expert in what each individual case needs. I am very pleased with how he was able to help my daughter, who is under 21 with her DUI in Fresno. She did not have to make a court appearance, which would have difficult with work and school, plus no car. It was reduced to a wet reckless; she had only six DUI classes to attend and no community service. In a different case in Lemoore, he was able to have the DUI charge dismissed in the DMV hearing and court, due to the machine being off on the calibration. He is quick to return your calls and keeps you up to date on any concerns you may have. I am so grateful for everything he has done for my family and would definitely recommend this attorney should you need to hire one."
-Ms. F, Fresno, California; first DUI reduced to "wet reckless," second DUI dismissed at trial and DMV case won.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping me with my case. I was impressed with your level of knowledge of the legal system and understanding of the court procedures. You were always available for discussing my case and gave me all the options we could take. Based on my situation and your expert guidance, I cannot tell you how relieved and grateful I was when we emerged victorious. The overall savings this means to me and my family is only the smallest of items of a long list of positive results in my life.
Best of luck to you."
