Thank you for your help

I am a victim of a sex crime. In our state Marsy's Law was just voted into our system. Micheal graciously took my phone call, he gave me his full attention and recommendation. I would like to thank him for his advice and treating me with the respect a victim deserves. Thank you again.

I can't thank Michael Fell enough. When I could't find anyone to help me during a critical time, Michael turned everything around with one phone call. I was drugged and sexually assaulted. I spent days in confusion and extreme pain. I reported to law enforcement 7 days after the rape. When I requested a forensic exam, I was repeatedly told that I waited too long and the forensic exam cut off was 5 days. Someone referred me to Michael Fell, a crime victims justice expert. Within an hour, Michael helped clear the way with an authorization from law enforcement and I received my forensic exam that afternoon. You won't find a more compassionate, knowledgeable, and resourceful Marsy's Law attorney than Michael Fell. He made such a big difference in my case when I was losing hope.

Marsy’s law review

I Was very unfortunate to have had a daughter killed by a drunk driver last year. The case was well documented and followed quite closely by local and national media. Mr Fell represented our interests as a crime victim via the Marsy’s law. One would think the state (prosecutor) and a private victim rights attorney would be working for the same goals. In general that assumption is very much correct. There are however some issues the victims might deem important to them that the state is neutral on. A huge example of this difference is weather to allow cameras in the court room or have no media allowed in the court room. In our particular case we wanted no cameras allowed. The state might think differently about this for several reasons including public awareness or as a teaching tool to educate the public. Neither is right or wrong just different. Another very helpful avenue a Marsy’s law attorney can assist a victim of crime is in regards to the right to a speedy trial. There is every reason to have an extra attorney on your side. The court receives a double dose of reasoning so to speak. Mr Fell was an absolute gentleman to work with. His explanations of the law and his pleasant demeanor were very much appreciated. I wish him the best.

Best Lawyer around

Mike Fell represented my husband and I under Marcy’s law as we were victims of a violent neighbor dispute. From the moment we met Mike we knew we were in the right hands as his knowledge of the law were second to none. He was thorough, always available and made us feel like we were the most important clients he was representing. His expertise and guidance lead us to the desired result and we would go to Mike again and refer him to anyone and everyone who needed a lawyer.

Assistance in Protection of Privacy

Mr. Fell was professional, compassionate and immediate in his response to my situation. With his years of experience as Deputy DA, his ability to address the problem was concise and thorough. Truly it was as if a miracle happened to restore my faith in humanity.

Amazing Attorney!

Mike fell was an unbelievable asset/resource to our family during a time that we never thought we’d ever have to go through. Our family has never had any experience in dealing with the law let alone dealing with this magnitude of a horrible and devastating experience to an immediate family member. Mike was always available to us and was not only everything we can ask for in an attorney but is an amazing person, family man and was always there for us! I wouldn’t’t recommend anyone else besides Mike Fell and his passion for Marcy’s law and helping our family was something I’ll never forget!

Knowledgeable & Compassionate Victims’ Rights Attorney

Mike is one of my heroes – he represented my son, Sean and my family under Marsy’s Law. Our beautiful 19 year old, Sean was murdered and we’d been in the court system over 4 years waiting on our 2nd trial. Countless, endless continuances by the defense. Mike filed a brief and made an appearance on our behalf asserting our Marsy’s constitutional rights to a speedy trial. It got the judge’s attention (finally) and we now have a firm trial date. He worked wonderfully with our great Riverside County DA, who is also my hero. Our lives have been turned upside down and inside out since Sean’s murder – Mike gave me a piece back – he helped me to feel empowered. He’s an important part of our team to get Justice for Sean. Mike, if you read this, you are amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Laura (Sean’s Mom)

Amazing Victim Rights Lawyer

I recently flew to CA to testify at a parole hearing of a man who murdered my father and sister many years ago. Mike Fell helped me every step of the way, especially after there was a postponement a day before the hearing. He is knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. He received my case on Christmas Eve, just 4 days prior to the hearing. He worked tirelessly over the holidays and cleared his schedule just to help me. This was my first parole hearing and I was nervous, yet I knew he had my back every step of the way.
