Defend Your Freedom With Our 5-Star Rated Manslaughter Lawyers
“Hello people of the internet, first off no I’m not a bot, I’m a real person who had a real problem. I was in a bad spot with the law and didn’t feel comfortable using a court appointed attorney because I knew that they would just push me through the system and I would just become another statistic. I didn’t want that for myself. I found VS Criminal attorney and figured I’d give them a call and tell them about my situation. Michelle got back to me very quickly and gave me a run down of my charges, what I would be facing and told me that she would do her best to reduce the charges that were brought up against me. I didn’t have much to offer at the time but she was understanding and as long as your willing work with her, her and her team will work with you. Throughout the course of a year she worked with me keeping me updated, suggesting routes that I should take that would help with my case. She gave me inner peace every time she gave me new information on what would happen next. The dedication she put into to my case really helped. She was able to reduce my sentence down to probation only. From what it once was to what it is now I can only be grateful for her and her team. If your in a bad spot and feel you may have a good case. I suggest giving them a call and see what they say. I am 110% happy with the outcome I got and it was all worth it because without them I know I would have just been pushed through the system and became another statistic. Thank you Michelle, you have a wonderful team I really appreciate all you’ve done for me.

“If you want a caring and responsive lawyer who you can count on I’d highly recommend looking no further. MIchelle will be there for you during what is likely one of the worst times in your life and actually give you the priority and individual care that is needed from your lawyer. My son received a fully dismissal because of the amazing work of Michelle, on what could have been a very serious sentence due to how the law sometimes works in a failed manner.
