Types of Assault Charges

You get what you pay for with this guy
I had a misdemeanor criminal case in Pennsylvania 15 years ago so I left Pennsylvania but as I got older I decided to get this behind me . I hired Paul and he told me how it would be when I came to court and it was exactly as he said, long story short I came back to Pennsylvania and everything was settled in court the same day and I was able to go back home that afternoon. My final words on this attorney he is a real straight shooter and he gets two thumbs up from me.
Fighter and Problem Solver
Paul was excellent and looked at the whole case from every angle. He was able to get outrageous charges lowered to next to nothing and fines thrown out. He feels for you on your case like it’s himself getting put through the ringer. Very personable and down to earth. Definitely the man you want fighting for you and with you.
Cannot say enough amazing things about Michael Parlow. There is absolutely no other lawyer to contact if you need representation. He is thorough, organized and extremely flexible. He helped and guided me through the whole process and took time even during the weekends to accommodate me.
