    We met with Michael B. Clayton to discuss possible bankruptcy options.  He was courteous, took the time to listen and itemized the assets vs debts.  I appreciate Michael's candidness and honesty when advising me not to file bankruptcy, but rather negotiate with the creditors.  Finding professional advice from people looking out for my best interest is always refreshing.  Thank you, Attorney Clayton, for your complimentary and priceless advice!

    I've had a few legal issues, and even through i retained council before meeting Michael, he still offered me better legal advice than my present lawyer. Upon first and second impressions, I have to say Michael has a cavalier, kick ass demeanor that definitely makes you feel confident when dealing with heavy charges. He's the only lawyer I've dealt with that i could actually just "breathe easy" and let him handle it. 5 stars for sure.

    I want to keep this short, sweet, and to the point! I contacted The Clayton Law Firm to find out about more about filing bankruptcy. A simple call to the office and an appointment to see Michael Clayton in person was set. We arrived a little anxious, but he was very personable, friendly, and put us at ease. He had answers to our questions and provided a clear picture of what was to come. He also was up front with the price and explained the timeline. I have called the law firm multiple times with questions and Micheal Clayton has found the time to speak with me and answer my questions every time. Also knowing that he has been in business for about 30 years put my mind at ease! This is not a firm that will be here today and gone tomorrow!

    I found myself needing a criminal lawyer, I needed answers ASAP. I called Michael Claytons office after hours, my call was answered by his office staff and was handled professionally and friendly, I was given a appointment the next day.                                       I meet with Michael Clayton and immediately knew I had made the right choice. Michael is very professional, friendly and has  great knowledge of the legal system. He communicates every step of the process and informs you on what to expect. Michael also let me know up front on what to expect for cost. He has answered personally every call I have made, and takes the time to answer all of my questions. I would highly recommend Michael Clayton, he has meet all of my expectations and more. Michael is there to protect my innocence every step of the way. I would not trust anyone else other then Michael Clayton, in my option he is the best and is there to fight for you!

    My recent experience with Michael Clayton was wonderful. My son who is a SGT in the United State Army was arrested and had charges brought against him in a traffic incident. My son was months away to re deploying to the Middle East. Mr Clayton really fought for my son he has the utmost respect for our military men and women. The final court case for my son was finished while my son was deployed Michael appeared for my son and submitted all of my sons military accommodation and the fact that he was deployed fighting for our country overseas for the next year ultimately all the charges were dropped for my son. I can not thank Michael Clayton and his staff enough for everything they have done. Michael is a true friend to the military community and understands the sacrifices they make for us. You hold a special place in this military moms heart.

    The absolute best attorney on the Central Coast. Mr. Clayton helped me with a legal matter and I was extremely happy with the outcome. First off I wanna say he's a extremely nice person. He truly cares about everyone of his clients and is very knowledgeable and smart!  He always makes himself available to talk and I never felt like I bothered him or that he was in a hurry which is rare with attorneys. They are usually watching the clock but not Mr. Clayton. I highly recommend him you will not be disappointed!

    Mr. Clayton and his team have been the help I needed in a situation that I never thought I'd be in. I am terrible with understanding legal lingo and practices since I normally don't need to deal with them in depth, but Mr. Clayton guided me through everything that I needed to know and everything that I should have been doing at different stages of the legal process. He understood the stress that I was under and assured me with good reason, not just simple courtesy, that everything would work out. This understanding and support helped me get out of the many psychological ruts I dug myself into along the way. His expertise and experience indeed helped me avoid a dire outcome. He told me to call him whenever I had any questions at all, day or night, which I appreciated because it's never easy to deal with these types of matters alone. I give my utmost recommendation for anyone seeking legal counsel to talk to Mr. Clayton and his team--I'm sure glad I chose them to aid me in my case.

    Michael Clayton and associates have helped me change my life. The first time I walked in the office, I knew I was in good hands. Words can't explain how it feels to walk in the court room with the best lawyer in town. He not only fought for me, but also took the matter into his own hands and guided me through the whole process. I highly recommend using Michael Clayton and associates for all your legal matters. Thanks again for all your hard work!Brian
