Michael Berg handled my case with competency, responsibility, honesty, and diligence. He made promises that he kept, and helped me get through my case from start to finish (over multiple months with follow-up over a year later). I can not provide any better recommendation than Mr. Berg if you need an attorney in San Diego.
I hired attorney Michael Berg for my attempted murder case, and let me tell you I don't regret a thing! Not only is he fantastic at what he does, he's honestly one of the humblest men I have ever met. His smile and energy is very contagious. I don't know where I'd be if I didn't find him. He helped me get my case dismissed! I suppose you could call him a miracle worker. He basically saved my life. I'm very young and this was my first time getting into trouble with the law. He helped me throughout the whole process and always had an answer to my questions. If you're in need of a criminal defense lawyer I assure you, he's the one. I guarantee you will not be disappointed in hiring him.
Today's result was outstanding! Thank you for your fine work! I will certainly recommend you should the need arise.
Wow. When I first met you I was 20 years old and scared to death. A drug addict behind bars and pregnant isn't where I thought I'd ever end up. That was 8 years ago. You're an amazing person and an awesome attorney and I'm lucky to have had you defending me. What you were able to do for me was give me another chance at life. You helped me to work with the system. Looking back, I couldn't have done any of it without you. I always recommend you to all my friends. You are, by far, one of the best attorneys out there, and a great person too!
The best of the best. Period. I recently had the pleasure of hiring Michael Berg to handle a rather difficult case. Professional, prompt and thorough he is the best I have ever encountered.
