Michael was absolutely amazing. This is by far the best Law Firm for all legal needs. Michael and the Law Firm were extremely accessible at all times and responded quickly to any of my questions. Michael worked extremely hard for me for DUI and Domestic Violence issues. He treated me as if I was his only client even though I was one of many. He truly cared about my me and my case, as well as my personal well being through some of my personal problems. I am so extremely pleased with everything he did for me and got me the best possible outcome for my case. I'm forever grateful and would recommend Kalamaya Goscha to everyone. Thank you so much for everything.

This was my first ever experience needing legal assistance and it was a rather emotionally-charged case. From the very beginning through to its conclusion, Michael Fox consistently issued a thorough explanation of details as they arose and made me comfortable with each step being taken. He answered all of my questions with patience and care. I felt completely at ease with him managing my case while I dealt with some challenging life events. Michael refused to settle for anything but the dismissal we both knew to be ethical, and that is precisely what he achieved. He is a dedicated and passionate attorney and I’m so lucky he took on my case.

Michael Fox was referred by a close friend who used Michael for his case. Michael did a fantastic job. He was prompt in responding and was knowledgeable in DUI law relative to my case. The end result turned out in my favor. Thank you Michael. I appreciate very much all your attention and transparency throughout the process.
