What Say My Clients:

Hands down Michael is my go-to attorney… Around 6 years ago I was referred to him by a close friend, I have been more than thankful ever since. As well as being a great lawyer he is a great person. The court can be scary and have him represent you is one of the best things you could do for yourself.

Any court I have been in with him (and trust me there has been many) he is well known and respected at the highest level. I’ve had a magistrate look at me and say “I respect your decision of having such great counsel represent you.” Now imagine that when you’re facing criminal charges and potential jail time. He fights for your rights and is very professional and reassuring, inside the courtroom he emits a radiance of confidence. If you’re dealing with the court system look no further! I promise you found the right lawyer for life. As through the years passing I always retain Mr. Steinberg, he cares deeply and has become a lifetime friend.

He has kept my freedom safe time and time again…sometimes at impossible odds that someone with the respect he has with the courts can only achieve. Again I say look no further this is the lawyer you need and can trust.

Mike, I have to admit I hated having cases that you represented people I had charged, as you were such a total pain in the a** because of the lengths you would go to in defending them! I always liked how you could turn a simple DUI into a murder trial! I hated it as a cop, but respected it as a person, and if I was in the defendant’s shoes, I would want you to do the same for me! I have to be honest and tell you that if I was ever in criminal trouble, you would always be the first I would call! I have thought about you a lot since I left the department, and have even given people your name when they needed a good criminal defense attorney! Take that as an awesome, heart felt compliment buddy, because I don’t say that about a whole lot of defense attorneys!

Mike handled two cases for me and honestly, I couldn’t have been happier with either outcome. I went into my legal situation facing multiple felonies and misdemeanors, all of which will be kept off my record upon my successful completion of probation. This was as good, if not better, than any of the “best case scenario” outcomes we discussed when I initially visited his offices for a consultation. Between waiting for court dates and warrants to be issued, the whole ordeal lasted almost 10 months, during which Mike and I were in constant contact. He was always a text or phone call away not only if I had any questions, but also when my parents would reach out with inquires of their own. We were never kept waiting for a response, which made the whole process so much less stressful. I would definitely recommend him if you require legal counsel!

Mr. Steinberg represented my 21-year-old son in several cases, all involving serious drug-related charges in several counties. He was able to get one case dismissed, one case reduced to a misdemeanor, and a sentence of less than minimum guidelines and a recommendation for boot camp for the third. Mr. Steinberg worked diligently in each case, kept us well informed throughout, and was able to accomplish the best outcome in a seemingly impossible short period of time. We recommend him highly and will not hesitate to retain him again if the need arises.

Mike really cares about his clients and their families. I just wish we had him earlier. He fights for what is right, he is a go getter. Mike makes sure that his clients do not get lost in the cracks of the system. He is stern but he has a heart of gold. He will be blessed God sees and will reward.

Expunge Your Record

Record expungement is a way of cleaning up your criminal record. Expunging a criminal or traffic record removes it from public inspection.

Similar to sealed records (see below), expunged records are inaccessible to the general public.
The record doesn’t disappear entirely, but it’s difficult to view it without a court order.
