I contacted Mike after I was pulled over on 476 and charged with DUI, along with other charges. I am from out of state and did not know any attorney in the area. I hold a USCG license it would most likely have been revoked if convicted. The end of my career for sure. My father was a DUI attorney when I was growing up. One of the best in our county. So I know a few things to look for in Mike.

I did not blow in there machine because I just don't do that. I told Mike that I was not going to plea to any alcohol related charges and we would need to go to trial during our first conversation. Mike looked over my details and told me straight forward, "that's what I do I will go to trial if it comes to that". He told me what I could expect if we lost. Mike was very straight forward.

Mike did a great job at the preliminary hearing, I was surprised that we lost it. I was happy with his work that day. If I was not happy with him I would have cut my losses and found a new attorney that's for sure.

During the next court hearing we received no good plea bargains. I was not pleading guilty to any alcohol related charges.

On are trial day the prosecutor still would not plea down my charges.

We go to trial and the prosecutor had so much evidence, Mike was able to find holes in just about all of the evidence. Not only find the holes but explain why there evidence should be thrown out.

After a 2 hour pre trial and hour trial I was found not guilty of the charges.

Mike did his job and did it well.
If I had been found guilty I would still believe Mike did his job well. You never know how the judge feels the day of your trial.

Long story short I would Highly recommend Mike

Mike knows how to take a DUI to trial and is not afraid to do it.

Michael and his staff were extremely supportive during a time of uncertainty where I had to put major life events on hold. Michael meticulously evaluated every aspect of my case to come up with the best possible defense. Ultimately the case was dismissed at the preliminary hearing. Highly recommend!

Hiring Atty. Kelly was the best decision I could have made to save my CDL, when charged with a DUI. You could just hear him pick apart every detail of the case against me. He even had the case dismissed at the preliminary. I am very grateful for his immense expertise and competence with DUI's! He will always be my #1 go-to lawyer! Thanks again Atty. Kelly!!

I live 5 hours away and was visiting family when returning home I went through a intersection with a temporary stop sign I did not see. I hired Mr. Michael Kelly to advise and represent me. He kept me informed and respond to all my inquiries. He was able to appear in court on my behalf so I did not have to drive 5 hours to court and 5 hours back home on the same day. He won my case so not only did I not receive any points on my license but also no costs were charged to me.

When my father was charged with a DUI Mike Kelly was my first choice because I knew him from high school. After dealing with Mike Kelly's office, he is the first choice because he rocked my father's DUI case. My dad walked away with a small fine, the need for a drug and alcohol evaluation, and his driver's license. Mike delivered on a promise to keep my dad's license. Moreover, Mike did so much more by making it easy to make payments on a low retainer fee. I was out of state and panicked because I lacked any control of the situation. However, Mike Kelly made me feel at ease by answering all calls and promptly returning calla; this is how my family was made to feel like a priority. Also, the firm sent a vehicle to the awful Januzzi APT complex to pick up said father to drive him to and from the court. Full service, this guy.

I hired Mr. Kelly to represent me for my second DUI. He was extremely helpful and kept me informed about all aspects of my case. He is down to earth and came across as very genuine every time we had an interaction. In the end he was able to reduce my charges to a disorderly conduct. I would strongly recommend him for anyone dealing with the fear and uncertainty of a DUI.

Hired Mike Kelly due to a 4 point speeding ticket. I was hoping to get reduction in points due to having a CDL license and he did better by getting the case thrown out. He always responded in a timely manner and was very professional. Would highly recommend him or use him again in the future.

Mr. Kelly was very professional and even picked me up for our appointment. A little pricey but he does everything within the lae to help. I was being charged with felony theft and he negotiated it to a summary and a fine. A+

If I ever get a DUI / DWI in Pennsylvania, I'm hiring Michael Kelly, not matter how much it costs. I met Michael at Harvard Law School, where we were attending a DUI seminar hosted by the National College of DUI defense. I was immediately impressed with his knowledge of how to defend these types of cases. I learned a lot from him and my practice has improved because of his skills. Fantastic lawyer.

I acquired the services of Michael Kelly at a time during which a former employer was attempting to block unemployment compensation that I believed was justly owed. During his preperation Mr. Kelly left no stone unturned in his research, met with me face to face in the comfort of his office and discussed all information I needed to know with a fine clarity, welcoming and addressing all of my questions and concerns. When it came time for the proceedings Mr. Kelly was thorough, accurate and confident in his presentation of my case and his questioning of my former employers left them with no room to wiggle. The verdict came quickly and absolutely in my favor. Mr. Kelly asked for an agreeable fee in return for his highly competent services and since that time I have recommended Michael to all who need any manner of legal representation.

Michael P. Kelly handled several hearings for me including child custody and support matters. He was very knowledgable and aggressive which was really needed. He was a caring lawyer who fights for what is right. He kept me informed always and worked extra hard to give my child and I what we needed. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is an absolute hardcore, fight for what is right type of lawyer. Friends of mine have also used him for other legal matters and he has never disappointed anyone I know. Fees and costs are reasonable and he's very professional.
