The Right ChoiceMike was referred to me by a friend. He defended me against some pretty tough charges. Whenever I spoke to Mike in person or by phone, I had his complete attention. He was very professional and never promised anything that he knew he couldn't deliver. He was honest about my scenario throughout the entire process. Ultimately my original guilty plea was set aside and my case was dismissed. I would confidently refer Mike in the future.
Outstanding Attorney, the Best Choice
Words cannot express how grateful I am to Mike Fell and all he accomplished for me through his outstanding skills as a criminal defense attorney. Mr. Fell, due to his thorough understanding of criminal law and the Orange County criminal justice system, literally gave me a second chance at life, negotiated a much reduced sentence, kept me out of jail, and allowed me to continue with a productive life.
Having spent almost 19 years as an Orange County deputy district attorney, Mike Fell draws upon his extensive knowledge of the inner workings of the Orange County criminal prosecution process to help represent and defend his clients against what may otherwise appear to be extremely stressful and insurmountable legal obstacles.
Mike Fell is an excellent coach in preparing his clients to deal with the process of being charged with a serious criminal offense. I whole heartedly and highly recommend Mike Fell to anyone who is facing criminal charges.
Best Attorney in Orange County (Arrested on Police sting for furnishing alcohol to a minor)I am a business professional that was arrested in one of the buy beer for a minor in front of a seven eleven sting. It was one of the stupidest things Ive ever done. After being cited for the misdemeanor, I contacted Michael Fell and he quickly got back to me. He met me the next morning and walked me through exactly what to expect. I hired him because of his experience in the DA's office. He is very connected and knows the local prosecutors well. He more then exceeded my expectations getting the entire case dropped before charges were even filed! If you don't retain Micheal you're making a big mistake, he really is the best of the best in OC! I really hope this helps anyone going through a tough situation and a big decision similar to what I went through. As a person who never writes reviews I felt compelled to share because of how great of an experience I had!
Wow, Cannot Recommend Him Enough
So I was facing an almost 100% probation violation in which I would be in jail for 12 months. I talked to a few lawyers and in their consults they basically told me I'm going to jail for the 12 months unless I hire them and we'll try to convince the judge of other options. So not satisfied I went searching for other lawyers and a buddy of mine recommended Mike Fell, but with a mere couple days left I was skeptical what he could really do for me. I then went on his website and left a message not really expecting any response till days later, but I got one back within HOURS!!! He then gave me GREAT advice with an option before the judge. Gave me advice of coming up with a game plan to convince my PO of not even violating him. I went along with that plan and he even gave me permission to use his name which gave it more credibility. With all his years of experience, my PO knew him. Now here I am with a second chance.I couldn't really put into words how great, honest, and professional he was with me so I just gave a short version of what I went through. He wasn't like the other lawyers I talked too who just tried to convince me I NEEDED TO HIRE them like a car salesman. Mike helped me through the kindness of his heart and gave me hope. He didn't ask anything of me after I told him his plan worked but this is the LEAST I CAN DO for his great consult. He wasn't like the others saying that he can guarantee certain outcomes of anything.I HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM OVER ANY OTHERS AND IVE TALKED TO A LOT OF LAWYERS IN THE PAST!!
I could not have asked for a better lawyer! I had a challenging case that began with me unexpectedly behind bars (and for the first time ever involved in the legal system).
Mike Fell was not chosen at random--he was referred to my family for his specialty and professionalism...by another accredited member in the legal community.
He met me in the jail, explained how the process would work, presented information in a manner I could understand (as a person who had never been involved with the law on any level).
Mike Fell made no promises of outcome but DID promise that he would be fully available to me at this frightening time in my life, and he promised he would do the best he could with my case--and I believe that is exactly what I got.
If I were ever in ANY situation that required legal representation, I would not hesitate to hire Mike Fell again.
I cannot say enough positive things about Mike Fell. Professional, responsive, knowledgeable, honest, empathetic, reliable.
