Attorney Michael Salnick is a man of his word, he sits you down and explains everything, he is always on time and insists on different solutions so that jail time is not an option at least in my case. His staff is excellent and the money i paid was worth it.

I know nothing of the system and can't pin point the problem, but I feel that I didn't get proper representation after talking with others in my similar position. I'm sure they are good, just the feeling you get by the way they act.

He and Mr. Fuchs who helped out at the end were both wonderful, very easy to talk to, very good at explaining everything and very effective. I was extremely satisfied.
