Above and Beyond!

When my options seemed limited and the outcome of my future uncertain I was so grateful when a friend referred me to Kalamaya and Goscha. My attorney, Michael Fox went above and beyond to make sure that I was getting the best representation possible; he made me feel extremely comfortable with his familiarity of the law and with his professional yet personable demeanor. It was such a relief knowing I was in good hands and I felt this ease every time in court, at every meeting, and with every e-mail and phone call. His prompt attention and skillful handling brought me quick closure on my case with better results than I could have imagined! Highly recommend using this firm for all your legal needs!

Exceptional Attorney

Mr. Fox provided me with exceptional service as my attorney this year. It was a stressful case that hit close to my heart, and Michael handled it with compassion and expertise. He was thorough with his case work and very prompt to respond while communicating. When dealing with the slothful DA's office Michael was presistent and always helped me understand where the case was headed. The outcome was ultimately better than anything I would have expected. Michael showed me respect, which is what I valued the most from knowing him as my lawyer. I want to extend a huge thanks to Mr. Fox for everything he has done for me and my family.

Mr. Fox was my public defender over the course of about 5 months between 2017-2018. He was very nice and friendly and helped me out immensely. He was able to negotiate with the district attorney's office and get me an amazing deal. He was very compassionate and helped me out a lot.
