I worked with Mike through my high net-worth individual representation. A grandson of my client got into some trouble and Mike was able to negotiate very serious charges down to probation and dismissal. I endorse this lawyer.

Each lawyer you meet is different in terms of their knowledge of the law, their ability to persuade and their concern for their clients. Finding someone with all those talents is rare indeed. Michael Fell has consistently demonstrated he possesses exceptional talents in all those areas. I have known Michael Fell for almost 20 years and find him to be extraordinarily honest and caring. He will fight to the end in order to insure that his clients receive the best possible representation. He is easy to talk to, always accessible and will work tirelessly for what he believes in. If you are looking for someone who will be in your corner from beginning to end, look no further. He is a top-notch lawyer who keeps his word. I recommend him highly.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Mike Fell is an awesome attorney hands down. On top of being a great lawyer, Mike is a great human being. Very empathetic to everyone's needs around him and an all around genuinely nice guy. In the courtroom, he is just an awesome attorney. He knows the law inside and out and is a great communicator. I would highly, highly recommend him for any legal work that needs an aggressive and highly intelligent attorney.

I have had the honor and pleasure of knowing Mike for a number of years since our time together in the Orange County District Attorney's Office. We became colleagues as well as friends on and off the job. I can attest to Mike's exceptional legal knowledge and skill as well as his character. We have brainstormed legal issues back and forth and it's always great to have someone with Mike's perception spotting issues and finding ways to work through them. I have referred clients to Mike without hesitation and emphatically endorse his work.

Jon Jackson
For the past 18 years, Mike has been one of the top prosecutors with the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. The range of cases he has handled while an Assistant District Attorney provided Mike with the type of criminal law background experience most attorneys can only dream of. Now that Mike has gone in to private practice, my office will be referring many of our valued clients to him who are in need of experienced and quality criminal defense services. When you are charged with a serious crime and, your freedom is at stake, you need to call Mike to protect your rights! Mitch Jackson/ Jackson & Wilson, Inc.

Payson Lederman
I have known Mike Fell for several years, since he was a Senior Deputy Orange County District Attorney. Now he is in private practice handling criminal defense matters. I am pleased to endorse him on Avvo. I recently referred him a serious felony case and he handled it beautifully - he got the case dismissed before it was even filed by the D.A.! Not that this will happen in every case necessarily, but I can truly say if I ever needed a criminal defense attorney, Mike it the first guy I would call.

Brian Gurwitz
During his 18 years as an Orange County prosecutor, Michael Fell earned a strong reputation with judges, his peers, and opposing counsel. He was an extremely effective trial attorney known for his integrity and dedication to justice. Whether he was trying serious cases, mentoring the younger attorneys he supervised, or comforting crime victims, Mike was a model public servant who represented the People’s interests with dedication and class. The reputation Mike developed as a prosecutor will serve his clients well now that he has entered private practice. Many attorneys are effective in the courtroom. Some are caring and dedicated to their clients. Very few, like Mike, combine these skills into a single package. I would refer a friend or family member to him without hesitation.
