I’m a real estate broker so I can recognize when someone is good or not through years of reading people. I am out of state and my first attorney was referred by one of my good friends that’s an attorney in my state. Unfortunately my friend didn’t know much about the first attorney. I sensed he wasn’t what I wanted. I then reached out to a friend that played in a band in Saugatuck, and everyone kept telling him Mike Villar. The second I talked to him on the phone I could tell he was the real deal. This guys rates were very reasonable, and he fully understood all the procedures of what was happening to us. We were way overcharged for drinking at Oval Beach watching a sunset. If we would of stayed with the previous attorney it could of affected our lives for a long time. What I loved about Mike was that he said the way he works is he goes in like honey, and if he doesn’t get what he wants then he turns to vinegar. Being in real estate I appreciated that! Going in thinking the worst, Mike not only got me the best case deal, but he left me leaving with a feeling that I even enjoyed the day because of his genuineness and positive energy. He talked with us for another 30 minutes that had nothing to do with the court. Very pleasant experience with him, and I highly recommend him!
Mike saved my future!!!

I made a poor decision one night while hanging out with some friends, and I ended up having multiple charges against me. I thought my life and my future were ruined! Mike represented me in my case and I have no criminal record and received a better deal than my other friends! I never thought I would have been able to walk away from that situation with a clean slate. I highly recommend having Mike represent you, especially if the odds seem stacked!!! HE’S A MIRACLE WORKER!
