Mr. Modica represented me with compassion belief in me and with respect. As a retired Philadelphia Police Officer, I will let my Faternal Order Lodge #5 know that if ever needed in the state of Delaware that I recommend him highly. It was a long day of at least 9 hours and he always had a smile on his face he won my case for me and for that I will always be grateful. Please know that you have a top notch Attorney in your organization be proud for I am of him and his service God Bless Him. — Joanne
The outcome of the case was very favorable considering the mountain of evidence that was against me. I was able to keep my driving privileges and not have a DUI on my record, which would have been detrimental to my career and family. Mr. Modica was able to communicate my situation to the prosecutor and judge and they were all in agreement with the judgement.
The only that I think Mr. Modica could improve on is making the client feel more welcome during the initial process of taking the case, and to get a better picture of the situation and what kind of person the client is initially. He did that with me toward the end, but could have been done earlier. Other than that, I had a good experience with Mr. Modica. — Anonymous
I found myself in a situation, with the law, that was really scary and something I would never have expected in my life. I contacted Mike for a consultation and instantly was instantly put at ease. I really can’t thank him enough. He was professional, diligent, and compassionate. My situation ultimately did not need any court dates or appearances but, it was complicated. Mike helped me through it all and I really can’t even begin to express my gratitude. If you’re in a bind and need some help; this is your man. — Anonymous
On Point. This man got the job done in just a few days! In the middle of a chrisis! Confident in his work and that made me feel a lot better because as everyone knows… having legal trouble is nerve wrecking! Thank you so much! — Cassandra
Michael Modica resolved a mixed bag of charges for me in family court, court of common pleas and superior court. Hands down best experience with a lawyer in my lifetime. He has helped me put my life back together as I had many issues in the past. I feel more confident because I can now move on and move forward. Mr. Modica did not charge a lot of money. I feel like another lawyer may have charged me at least three times for all the things he was able to accomplish. He got every case dismissed and officially processed in a manner so timely it’s a wonder how it was possible. I can go on for days about Michael Modica but let me speak from experience and say he is professional, kind, compassionate and just top notch. After reading some of his bio I understand why he has been selected to try cases at the state Supreme Court level. I feel like he’s got what it takes to be a Supreme Court Justice, state or federal. In essence, if you want the best in a situation that is very serious, Mr. Modica is the best choice. — Jordan
He saved my life. 5 stars do not do justice to what Mr Modica can provide. My case was a out of state DUI, as I live in another state and got DUI in Delaware with one of the highest BAC level, even his honorable judge was shocked to see the BAC level. My case was really strong with very solid state evidence, and also had so many other factors, enough to get me behind the bars. From the time I consulted Mr Modica I kind of liked him. He did not promise something to please me or to gain my trust as other lawyer tried to do, and that is one of the main reasons I decided to hire Mr Modica. I know I have made correct decision but still had lot of anxiety. From the day when I was pulled over for DUI till my first court date I imagined myself in jail and visualized it millions of times, and was kind of sure I will not be able to avoid jail time. Mr Modica saved my life, future, career and much more. He was so confident and still very humble. It is just because of Mr. Michael Modica I got best results of my case with minimum penalties and I could not have asked for anything more. I will never forget one name in my life “Mr Michael Modica” for his life saving services for me. — Anonymous
Best Lawyer I have talked to. Michael was very helpful in helping me understanding my case and the outcomes and alternatives of it. I highly recommend him for a consultation or attorney! — Jacob
After reading so many reviews of lawyers, trying to pick the one that would give us the best counsel, we hired Mr. Modica. From the first phone call, Mr. Modica was calm and professional. He explained everything, and even made a few phone calls for me prior to being hired by us. Mr. Modica showed up unexpectedly at the police station to see my son when he was being processed. He has a great rapport with the officers and is clearly well respected. Mr. Modica met us at the courthouse for the preliminary hearing and was able to resolve the charge, which could have been a felony. The charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. Without going into detail, we were so happy to have hired Mr. Modica, the judgement was the absolute best we could have asked for. Should you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of reading lawyer reviews, I highly recommend Mr. Modica. His demeanor is calm and collected, and he helped keep this mom calm while representing my son in a case which could have potentially impacted his life forever. Thank you again Mr. Modica, hoping we only see you again in passing. — Melissa
DUI Assistance. Mike gave me great legal advice. He negotiated a fair plea agreement. I was kept informed. I hope never to need is services as an attorney again, but if I do, I would want to hire him. — Kate
Mr. Modica saved me. I got into big trouble, and was unfortunately charged two felonies and one domestic violence . One of them is mandatory three year prison time if convicted. Before I met Mr. Modica, I consulted with a couple of other attorneys. Every time I cried badly afterwards. I was told my charges were very serious and I was under the impression that I should plea guilty for a less serious charge if I was fortunate enough to be offered one. The word of “guilty”hit me hard. I didn’t do anything wrong. Why should I plea guilty? And I believe it will get me somewhere some time in the future. When I met with Mr. Modica, I almost gave up any hope. I was worried I couldn’t afford his service. His review is so high so I thought he must be very expensive. and other attorneys already told me my case was very bad. Mr. Modica Listened to me. He trusts me! He didn’t promise anything or mentioned any plea deal. He said he would do his best to help me. I won’t go any details. But The result is: my case was dismissed at the preliminary . Mr. Monica saved me. When I met Mr. Modica at the preliminary, I said I should pay him more since he helped me so much, a lot more than what other attorneys promised. Mr. Modica said he just did what he should for his client and I don’t need to pay him more. comparing with other attorneysi talked with, Mr. Modica’s attorney fee is reasonable and fair. I hope I will never get into trouble or need an attorney any more, but I will keep Mr. Modica’s contact for sure. I normally don’t leave any comment for anything or anyone, but I am so thankful to Mr. Modica’s help and so thankful to the reviews other people post here, I should contribute a bit. If you need a criminal attorney, contact Mr. Modica. Setting up a free consultation with him. I am so glad I did! — Anonymous
When I was first arrested for a DUI, I began looking for attorneys. Every attorney I spoke with was either more interested in my money or fast talking & arrogant. When I called Mike Modica, I knew instantly he was the attorney that I would hire. Mike answered all of my questions. His confidence & experience made me feel assured that I had the best attorney without being the highest priced.
Mike Modica knew all the things to look for that helped prove my innocence & made the police look like fools for pulling me over. Mike never said take a plea, he fought to win my case. I won because I hired Mike Modica to represent me. Mom & dad may have given me life, but Mike Modica gave life back to me. — B.B.
Thank you Mr. Modica, Amanda and Karen for another job well done. You have handled several cases for me now and I am always treated with courtesy and respect. The entire staff at your law office always manages to make me feel like my case is as important to you as it is to me. You always return my calls promptly no matter how big or small the issue is. I appreciate the time and effort you put into every situation and how completely prepared we are every time we go to court. Your knowledge and expertise are quite evident in the courtroom. I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done. I will continue to recommend you to everyone I know. — Chris
Mike takes a very commonsense approach to the law. His ability to break down legal concepts and navigate the legal system gave us a strong sense of confidence as we worked out a fair resolution to the charges facing our college student. I would recommend Mike without reservation. — R.O.
Mike is the ultimate professional. His calm demeanor complimented by his deep knowledge of Delaware law and its legal/court system made all the difference as we worked through what could have been a stress-filled, time-consuming and expensive legal process. I would recommend Mike without reservation. — D.D.
I have used Mike’s legal services on several occasions and in all cases have been pleased with the services rendered and the outcomes obtained. Mike is very knowledgeable of the law and does a good job at identifying your options and potential outcomes with each. He walks you through these in a way that is clear and you know what choices you have. He is thorough and goes the extra mile to ensure every avenue is explored that could prove helpful to your case. He has a calm and respectful demeanor that not only helps the client but, I believe, also helps him gain respect and cooperation from opposing attorneys and judges. The trust and credibility he seems to command in his legal environment is very helpful for the client in achieving satisfactory outcomes. — Anonymous
Mr. Modica is very thorough and has always recommended the best actions to take in court proceedings while representing a family member of mine on several occasions in the past. He truly cares about his clients and recommends that they do what is best for their own well being as well as their legal obligations although he does allow the ultimate decision to be the client’s if there would be choices in the matter, but he does encourage the client to make the best possible choice for themselves. — Donna W
I recently engaged the services of Mr. Modica and I must say I am very happy with his assistance. Below is how I feel about the job he did on my behalf: Based upon personal experiences with other law firms, I was extremely impressed with the attention I received from Mr Modica and the efforts he made on my behalf relating to my case. What impressed me the most is the fact that he took my case at a very short notice and still helped me get a favorable ruling. Now I have an attorney I can proudly refer to others! — Brian
I recently had Michael Modica represent me for a DUI. I’d never had any problems with the law ever, so this had been a frightening experience for me. I found him to be very caring and sensitive to my situation. He got back to me immediately with any questions I had regarding the case. I felt totally at ease dealing with Michael, and I would highly recommend him to anyone out there in need of representation. — Sincerely, LH
Mr. Modica did some legal work for me a few years ago when the contractor I had hired was taking money from me but not paying the supplier of cabinets for my kitchen. I had first hired another local attorney who never looked at any of the paperwork I had showing receipt of my payments or any other documentation. What resulted was a long and very costly battle with the contractor and, in turn, I ended up having to pay both court and legal fees. One year later, I learned that the supplier for the cabinets had put a lien on my home for payment well before I pursued this lawyer to take my case and it wasn’t removed at case settlement. Trying to get the lien removed, I did not receive a response from any of my phone calls to the lawyer who supposedly settled my case.
A friend recommended Mr. Michael Modica. Mr. Modica told me exactly what I should expect from his services. Within two weeks, Mr. Modica had the lien removed from my home and also had the supplier of the cabinetry to come back to my house and finish the work that was left undone a year previously due to the original legal issues. That was above my expectations!
Since my first experience with Mr. Modica, I have referred him to my sister who received a large refund settlement from work done on her home. Mr. Modica has also represented my kids in court for traffic tickets/violations and recently represented my neighbor’s son who was attending the University of Delaware for underage consumption.
Mr. Modica is a true gentlemen and very patient, highly ethical and understands the tension his clients feel. He is very upfront on expectations.
I highly recommend Mr. Modica for all legal issues. — Anonymous.

Worked hard to get proper dates for court appearances set up over 6 month period. Made sure evidence was collected and analyzed properly. Properly acquired all evidence in case and built a solid defense. Got all of my charges reduced to a single moving violation, nothing more than two points and a minor fine. Always was prompt and courteous with meetings and court dates. Very clear explanations of court proceedings and possible outcomes. Transparent and concise about intentions and realities of specific case. Worked to help me before anyone else. Very personable in manner. Overall would hire and recommend again. — Steve

Hiring Michael Modica to represent me was the best decision I could have made. While facing multiple felony charges I maintained my innocence but it seemed that nobody wanted to listen . Michael Modica did listen .He was not about to let such an injustice take place. He fought for me every inch of the way and although I was being charged with more than 25 felonies all of the charges were dismissed and I didn’t even have to go trial. Michael Modica is a very caring person and an excellent Attorney. I highly recommend Mr Modica for your legal representation. You will be glad you did. — Anonymous
Mike did a great job. He is knowledgable and highly skilled. He acted with the utmost professionalism to quickly resolve my case and I highly recommend him. — Anonymous
I hired Mike to represent me in a 2nd DUI case. During my initial consultation Mike gave me realistic expectations before even hired. For me, it was more important to have an attorney I can trust rather than one who sells me by providing false expectations. This gave me ample time to prepare for the worst case scenario. Throughout the case Mike kept open lines of communication which is hard to find with other attorneys. The most valuable aspects Mike offers is his capability in the courtroom and negotiation with the prosecution inside and outside the courtroom. He is very professional and was very aware of the best possible pleas my case. Mike exceeded my expectations by creating a custom plea agreement specific to my needs and using all of his resources to make it happen. There is not a doubt that Mike made a tremendous impact on my life by keeping the ramifications of my charges to a minimal. If you choose to hire Mike as your attorney you will surely get more value from his services than the price he charges from representation. As a first time customer, God forbid I ever need another criminal offense lawyer, Mike is my guy. I hope this review helps and stay positive. — 2nd DUI Client
This attorney is a WINNER! I have trusted my sons life in his hands several times. I have retained Mr. Modica to represent him with criminal charges and modifications associated with VOP. Each time he has been attentive, successful and went over and beyond to get the results we asked for. He is a fighter and highly respected in the court and certainly has the background and experience to get the job done. He listens and replies within a timely manner to all your questions. He gives a personal touch to keep the family updated and is honest to let you know in advance the best strategy.

His prices are very reasonable. I have full confidence with him on the case. You can’t go wrong with this attorney. If you want to win, hire him. — Dianna

I was on my way back to the DC area when I was pulled over by a officer and given SEVEN citations for anything he could think off. Being a young guy with a 70K car, it’s not my first time dealing with a officer who thinks I’m some spoiled brat and wants to teach me a lesson. Mr.Modica got ALL charges dismissed expect for improper lane change. HE’S THE BEST! — Keith
Mr.Modica saved my life… He looked at the facts and kept it 100% honest with me. Sometimes the truth is not enough.The laws that govern this great country are extremely complicated and therefore tricky to understand. I clashed with Mr.Modica on many occasions after doing my own studying and believing that I knew more about the law then maybe he did.In the end i placed most of my trust in him, and in our Father in heaven. And he cleared me of all charges that would’ve landed me in prison for a long time for something I did not not do. Mr. Modica, you are a great man and a beautiful mind. May God continue to bless you and yours. Your client and friend Mr. Daniel Diaz and Family. God Bless. Proverb 3:5 — Daniel
I searched through every criminal defense lawyer in Delaware, one told me he wasn’t even going to go to the preliminary, fast track or vop hearings – that he’d send his minion out to do that for him and he’d only attend the trial – funny thing is I’d have to pay him $21, 000 for him to only attend the trial. I was crushed thinking that my husband was going to rot in jail because I couldn’t afford that money and I was NOT going to pay for someone to not be there. Well I came across Modica on this site and gave him a call. He said he could meet me the next day and when we met he told me that he would be with my husband every step of the way and his prices were decent. I went with him. He was true to his wordand defended my husband every step of the way, he went that extra mile needed and we ended up with a plea of NOT GUILTY!!! I thank you so much for that Mr. Modica. Without you I ddon’t know where we’d be. — Amanda

Mr. Modica was in frequent contact with my brother while he was incarcerated. He kept both my brother and the family informed of the options and case strategies. When my brothers case went to trial Mr. Modica was well informed of the law and spoke well to the jury. He argued and won multiple objections with the prosecutor and ultimately the verdict for my brother was not guilty. Our family feels that this verdict was in large part to the defense strategy that Mr. Modica’s planned and executed. — Anonymous

We engaged Mr. Modica for a family member with special needs. Another Attorney (highly ranked on Delaware Today’s Top Ten) had made mistake(s) that resulted in complicating our situation further. Of course, that Top Ten Attorney was willing to correct his mistakes, if we paid him to do so. We fired him and hired Mr. Modica. Mr. Modica handled our situation with compassion and skill, resolving it much to our satisfaction. He went out of his way to accommodate us. Several days ago I received a check from him in the mail, he returned monies he felt he did not earn. Hire him and ignore the Top Ten. — Anonymous
I was very worried about my case when I contacted Mr. Modica. I felt reassured after speaking with him because he took the time to explain all possible outcomes, demonstrated his expertise in Delaware law by detailing various opportunities we would have, and provided me with the confidence that he personally cared about the disposition of my case.
He did not “sugar-coat” my circumstances, but with comfortable professionalism and without judgment, he questioned me about all the relevant facts and clearly explained how each factor would affect his ability to argue on my behalf. Since I am not a resident of Delaware, he also demonstrated his knowledge about what I can expect under various outcomes as an out-of-state resident.
Throughout the process of my case, Mr. Modica was always responsive and incredibly helpful. I went into court with the confidence that regardless of the outcome, I had the best representation possible. As it turns out, Mr. Modica was able to achieve the best possible resolution to my case and I am forever grateful for his services, which I hope to never require again.
I highly recommend that anyone searching for legal counsel in Delaware contact Mr. Modica immediately. — Evan
