"After being pulled over by the police they, for no reason, pulled me out of my car and slammed me to the ground. When I got up I noticed two broken teeth and my jaw bone was really sore. I also had bruising on my arm. There was no reason why the cops had to treat me like that. I found Michael L. Guisti, told him what happened, and he filed a civil suit against the police department. I am so happy Mr. Guisti made the police department answer for their abuse of me. Nobody should ever have to go through that. Michael Guisti makes police departments answer when they abuse their power. Thanks for all you did."

Client Reviews

“It was strongly recommended that I call federal defense attorney Michael L. Guisti. He had several investigators look at records and such, and my federal case was dismissed. Michael Guisti does what few attorneys can do, beat the federal government, and that is why if you’re in trouble with the government you need to call Michael Guisti right away!”

“I had everything to lose, my future, my education. Basically I did something that got me a misdemeanor, and the judge wanted to give a guilty plea. But Michael Guisti would not back down. Instead he fought for me, and now my record is clean.”

- Client on


“Back in 2003 I was facing attempted murder. My family hired Michael Guisti to represent me. He is a very good attorney. He always answered my calls, addressed my questions and concerns, and kept me updated about my case. Thank you Michael Guisti for winning my case. I highly recommend anyone facing a criminal charge to see Michael Guisti.”
