Michael P. Koribanics
"There is more to being a criminal lawyer than just knowing & applying the law, you have to know your client. You have to know how to best service your client, and you must keep the line of communication open at all times. Criminal law is a very personal thing. Freedom is often at stake and decisions are life-changing. I am with my clients from beginning to end. It's emotional and it's difficult. It's what I do, and I do it with great passion."
