I'm a first time DUI offender. Mr. Parlow was outstanding. He was very caring during my time of need. Not only did he get me into ARD, but he also was able to get my BAC reduced from .159 to .099 to avoid a 30 day suspension of my license. This was very critical for me. I am able to get my wife to her appointments without uber or lyft. Also I'm able to continue my duties where i am employed. Excellent job Michael!
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.
Teenage Son Got into Some Trouble
This past fall, my son got into some trouble with the police while "hanging out" with a group of his peers. I called Paul on a weekend and he replied with a phone call immediately on a Saturday morning. Paul warned me that my son could be facing a felony charge! Paul brought us in and spent a lot of time interviewing me and my son - at no cost. Paul is a serious and honest attorney who really seems to thrive in situations where he can use his expertise in Bucks county to help young people realize the best outcome possible.
