I was put in an extremely bad position and looking at a really long jail time but I knew I was innocent, I knew I had to fight. Michael O’Brien didn’t sugar coat my situation and was completely up-front from the word go. I’m so very lucky to have had Michael fighting for me, otherwise I wouldn’t be here kissing my children good night. Thank you so so much Michael, I have you to thank for my freedom and so much more! I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Michael, and certainly won’t ever hesitate to call him again.

Michael O’Brien was professional and we got what we wanted in court. Could not recommend anyone better. The firm's communications were always there. If I ever had an issue they always catered to my issues. Big thanks to Michael and the team!

Michael O'Brien by far is the best lawyer, I've used Michael for 5 years now and I would not go anywhere else. Well priced, very well presented and goes above and beyond to support the client. Thank you Michael!

Since I first had a meeting with Michael he has been very, very professional and listened to what I had to say. Michael’s advice all the way was on the money. For me, the cost didn’t mean anything it was about how we win. I would recommend Michael and Fisher Dore to anyone who needs a great lawyer and firm. Thank you Michael and staff. Thank you to the Barristers Michael recommended. Thank you.
