I have known Mike for over a decade. My practice is in civil litigation and so I have, from time to time, referred criminal defense matters to him. He is prompt, punctual, attentive, knoweldgable and dedicated to his clients. The people I have referred to him have been uniformly satisfied with his legal representation and professionalism. I recommend Michael S. Berg without reservation for your highest ratings. Thank you, Steven J. Roberts, Esq.; 858-335-8035 or sroberts@sandiegolawfirm.com

For the last 20 years plus I have had the opportunity to observe Mr. Bergs participation in the criminal justice system in San Diego, California. We have discussed legal issues in the criminal arena and it is abundantly clear that he has terrific grasp of the issues and solutiions to help his clients through most difficult times. I personally would have no reservations in hiring Mr. Berg if it was I who was charged with criminal activity.
