Throughout my entire experience with the team at Wendle Criminal Law I felt I was treated with respect, courtesy and care. I know I was in the hands of experienced, capable and caring individuals. I made the horrible mistake of driving intoxicated and was charged with a DUI. The team at Wendl Criminal Law worked diligently and aggressively and successfully resolved my case to everyone's satisfaction. I do highly recommend Michael, Dean and Kim. I thank them for their hard work, compassion and generosity.
Kind, competent and cordial, Mr. Wendl's record speaks for itself.
Caring, extremely bright...an all-around great lawyer and person.
Extremely Effective - Efficient - Diligent - and most Appreciatively Caring
This is an extraordinary team of professionals. Our son’s unusual circumstances required someone that would use all their expertise and past experience to negotiate most effectively with the Crown. The judge mentioned in his conclusion, that Mr. Wendl had done his job well and had come to a far better resolution with the crown than he would ever have agreed to had he have been in her position. That speaks volumes. Beyond their proficiency, These People Genuinely Care. They are there, not only for their clients, but their client’s family as well. Michael, Kim & Dean have gone above and beyond our expectations. We are thankful we chose to but our faith in Wendl Law and are confident you will be too.
I would highly recommend Mr. Wendl and his team when seeking legal representation. With the complexity of my son’s criminal charge and with our limited knowledge of the legal system, Mr. Wendl proved to be patient and experienced when fielding all of our questions. He presented a solid plan of action and was persistent when seeking the best possible outcome for my son with success. He personally supported and guided us through the complicated legal system with honesty and complete professionalism. The determination and level of compassion Mr. Wendl exuded throughout this matter was immensely appreciated. Mr. Wendl is a defense lawyer who listens to his clients and understands the humanity of their situation. You do not feel like just another case to him.
Should be ranked # 1 in Halton
I called the #1 ranked Lawyer (at that time) with a problem - no court date on the DUI ticket. He was to look in on it but when I called for a status update he never called back. Then I called Michael. He stepped me through the whole process. My daughter, who had the DUI, suffers from anxiety and takes medication for it. Michael calmed her through-out the whole court process - I can't express how helpful this was to my daughter. The Crown Attorney and Michael came to a pre-trial agreement, and while I sat in court to watch many lawyers defend their clients before my daughters turn, I was amazed at how hard Micheal defended my daughter's earnest intentions despite the foregone conclusion of the agreement. Moreover, several months later I had a slight misunderstanding with government services about re-instating my daughter's license to which I looked to Micheal for advice. He responded quickly, accurately and at no cost.. Finally, a big shout out to Michael's assistant Kim. She is invaluable. You won't find a more caring team. It's not just a job for them.
Great service from a professional you can trust.
I highly recommend Michael Wendl to be your legal representation. Going through legal trouble is stressful and mentally exhausting. Having a professional such as Michael Wendl will help to alleviate the stressful experience of being charged with a crime.
