Got me the best outcome and even helped me after a year to make sure the record is off. I have come across many attorneys, honestly He is awesome and personable. I would highly recommend him anytime.

I didn’t know much about the entire legal process so Paul was a great Lawyer for me. He took the time to explain everything without making me feel dumb. He fought for me and got me a great outcome for my case. He is a great guy that eased my stress about my case and I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Paul!

I wanted to say thank you for representing me this week. I could not be happier with the outcome. I truly realize how significant the impact of my situation is going to be the rest of my life. People make mistakes but people do change. You were a great supporter, open, candid and very honest. I felt like you really cared about the outcome of my case. I will gladly pass your name along to anyone I know who is seeking legal assistance for a DUI.

Thank you to Paul and more importantly Amy Bartold, for providing great legal support, during one of the most stressful and troubling times in my life. Amy you were very professional, patient, but yet meticulous in your approach to defending my case. Your legal expertise and attentiveness to historical legality led to an acquittal in my case. I want to thank you and Paul both for representing me, during a time in my life when I was very vulnerable, and had so much to lose. Once again, thank you for giving me my life back, and allowing me to live life unrestricted and free.

- W.J., Rochester Hills

Paul, Thank you for representing me at court. You were more than just an attorney to me. You believed in me and will always be my friend also!

- D.W., Macomb County


My son was charged with two serious felonies for home invasion. Paul worked long and hard on the case and was able to negotiate a deal so that all of the charges were dismissed after my son completed probation. He is now in college without a criminal record.

- Mr. T., Oakland County


I was arrested for drunk driving and possession of a controlled substance (Vicodin). Paul worked hard on the case and kept the felony off my record and got the drunk driving case reduced so that I kept my driver’s license and my job. He really cared about helping me.

Paul’s hard work at trial showed my ex-girlfriend lied and saved me from prison.

- Mr. G.B., Oakland County Felonious Assault


Paul, Once again, Thanks for your expertise with this matter. I think you did a great job!

- Mr. B., OWI 2nd Offense


Paul, Thank you for guiding me through one of the worst events of my life. I hope I never see you again. (I mean that as nicely as possible!)

- Ms. G., OWI Case


When I recently had an issue at the airport, I decided to call Paul on the weekend. He called me back on a Sunday! He dealt with my issue without me having to fly back to Michigan and got it dismissed. Until you go through the court system especially for the first time, you don’t have a sense for how harrowing it can be.

I’ve used Paul for a BAIID appeal hearing multiple times. He has been very professional is very knowledgeable in the laws applicable. I’ve used other attorneys in the past but have never had the satisfaction as I’ve had with Paul. Most attorneys will over promise but be hard to reach after the contract is signed. Despite the time of day or the day of the week, he has always immediately responded to me. In addition, his assistant Karen has always been incredibly helpful in making calls to the SOS on my behalf. Although he may not have all the answers immediately, his immediate reply has reassured me numerous times. Just knowing that he’s reachable allayed much of my anxiety. In the end, he went above and beyond to make sure everything worked out. I would gladly recommend him to friends and family without hesitation.

Paul did an excellent job representing me as my criminal defense attorney. I was struggling to decide if I wanted to pay for attorney services or just represent myself on my second probation violation hearing. I made a last minute decision to hire Paul and looking back I’m certain that I made the right call. I telephoned Paul on a Saturday morning and he returned my VM within a couple hours and scheduled a consultation for the following Sunday morning. I met with him on a Sunday morning and we discussed my case in elaborate detail and went to court two days later. Paul far exceeded my expectations, he took the time to fully understand my situation and give me the best possible representation in a very difficult situation.

Paul handled everything, at my hearing he approached the Judge with my probation officer and they discussed the details of the case amongst the three of themselves. Paul arranged a favorable sentence for me. The Judge told me “Your attorney spoke eloquently in your defense”…

I believe that hiring Paul to defend me that day was one of the best decisions I ever made. This was the third time I hired Paul in my defense and he did a fine job representing me each time.

His technical skills, character and manner of handling the situation produced a wonderful result which has allowed me to move on with my life with minimal damage. I am extremely grateful and appreciative of his professionalism and obvious skills. Thank you Paul.

Paul J. Tafelski is an excellent choice for an attorney. We were stuck in a difficult situation, he listened intently, was sincere, and made us feel supported during a very stressful time. He answers all questions and doesn’t talk about money. He is an upstanding professional who really does want to help! We are so glad that we found a compassionate human being to help us during a very vulnerable time. Thank you Paul for all of your help!!!

Paul is an exceptional professional who worked on my case and helped me get lowest sentence possible. His expertise, dedication and friendly attitude are more than you would expect. Also the fees were pleasantly moderate. Highly recommended!
