Testimonials

  • I cannot offer a higher recommendation for Michael Wynne. Over and above his experience and expertise as a top notch lawyer, through the course of my case he became a friend and helped guide me impeccably through the legal, emotional and psychological tribulations that I faced. I truly believe he will be a friend and mentor for the rest of my life.

  • Recently, Michael represented my son on a sensitive matter that had potential criminal repercussions. The matter required an evaluation of criminal liability , strategizing on the best approach to handling a defense, and engaging with federal authorities at both the FBI and DOJ. Michael's previous experience as a AUSA and his track record of representing clients in white collar criminal proceedings proved utterly invaluable. Through a series of discussions with the FBI agents assigned to the case as well as the AUSA, the matter was resolved quickly without any charges being brought. Throughout the process, Michael was a great communicator, was honest and frank about the issues involved, and very focused on getting the outcome that ultimately resulted for my son. I can recommend him without reservation as a trusted and highly skilled legal counsel.
