I hired Ms. Patel after a recommendation from a friend and I am so thankful for doing so. Ms. Patel provided actionable advice and helped get a very positive outcome on my behalf. I greatly appreciate the help she provided for my case and grateful for her efforts, legal advice, and time. Would strongly recommend.

Worked directly with Michael Bruckheim on a DUI case, he made it very easy to get through and really made sure we got the best case scenario, my case was reduced to a wreckless driving and i was able to expunge my records of anything alcohol related. At all times i felt like he truly cared about helping me get through this and I'm very thankful for all he's done. I'd recommend him to anyone, 100% happy with my decision of working with him. He had a great deal of experience in this field.

In a process where I was concerned and confused, I am definitely glad that I was referred to Michael Bruckheim of Bruckheim & Patel. A lawyer friend of mine in Atlanta reached out to his colleagues in the DMV area when he heard about my case and Michael’s name came up immediately. On initial contact, Michael was patient and empathetic as I told my story and he gave me honest and real feedback on possible outcomes, given the details of my case. When we met in person, he also gave me a step-by-step explanation of the overall legal process as well as advice on ways to mitigate my case. During the entire process, Michael as professional, knowledgeable and extremely responsive. By the time my court date came around, I was more comfortable with my situation and felt prepared to deal with any verdict. I would definitely go back to him for any legal matters and/or advice. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, I received THE BEST possible result!! I am a very happy client!
