Hired Michael after one conversation with him and I knew that he knew what he was doing when it came to law. I never had such an easy non-stressed case when it came to dealing with Mr. Connelly . He dealt with a debt collector and did everything he said he would and then some. He not only got my case dismissed he also had it removed from my credit file!! I’m very very pleased with his Services I recommend him highly to anyone that has a legal issue

Patient, Reassuring, Professional

I had never been in this position before. I received solicitations from many attorneys. Michael’s stood out because it wasn’t like the others. It was hand addressed and he used a postage stamp. It felt personal. When I made my decision and called him, he returned my call immediately. He described his services, in detail, and explained what would happen and why he was so successful with these cases. Through out the entire conversation I felt assured that I had made the right decision. He took care of everything without me having to step foot in a courtroom. He notified me today that my case was dismissed with prejudice. The best outcome I could hope for. I highly recommend Michael and would definitely use him again if I ever have the need.

Very capable, dependable, and timely in handling my case – 5 Stars!

Mr. Connelly is a truly dedicated, well trained attorney. He explained what he could do, how he was going to approach the situation and he did just that! My case was dismissed – and it should have been. However, without Mr. Connelly’s expertise, I had no way of knowing my case should and could be dismissed.
He is knowledgeable and has the ability to effectively follow through with his strategy. I believe him to be trustworthy. He also completed my case in a timely manner. In summary, I am very pleased with the way he handled my case.

Great Service

He handled a debt problem with me. It was very easy to work with him. I was able to simply hand the problem to him and he resolved it to my satisfaction. He even handled my court date for me. It was the easiest problem I ever solved. Thanks

I have known Michael for years even before I knew him as a lawyer. He’s an intelligent and analytical person and attorney. I’ve always been impressed with his involvement in any case I have referred to him, or worked with him on.
