Every drug case, whether it be for personal use, manufacture, delivery or possession with intent to deliver is initiated with a car stop, pedestrian stop and/or search of your home, car or personal items.
These stops and searches often result in the seizure of drugs, money, paraphernalia and other evidence the police will use in court.
If you are found guilty of a drug possession crime in Pennsylvania, the penalties can be quite harsh: long jail sentences, large fines, license suspensions and a permanent criminal record. State and federal authorities can be especially vigorous in prosecuting drug violations, even at the expense of an individual's constitutional rights. You will need the services of an attorney who will be equally as vigorous in defending your rights. Parlow & Lang, LLC is dedicated to representing the interests of clients facing a variety of felony and misdemeanor drug charges in Pennsylvania and federal courts.
You Have Rights. I am Here to Protect Them.
Protecting your constitutional rights is central to our drug crimes practice.
Michael Parlow and Paul Lang have successfully defended thousands of individuals charged with possession of drugs for personal use, manufacturing drugs, selling drugs and individuals who happen to be in a car or home where drugs are found.

Outstanding! Exceptional! Phenomenal!
Michael Parlow represented my son on several separate charges of DUI, Criminal Theft and Possession of a Controlled Substance. My son had been arrested and held in county prison on $300,000 bail. My son's future did not look promising at all. He was facing serious time in prison.
Michael Parlow is an exceptional and outstanding attorney who is meticulous in his work. Michael gathered all of the documents, reviewed them at length, spoke to officials involved and prepared the best defense to protect my son! He was extremely professional and dedicated to my son. Michael understood the impact of the legal charges on the entire family not just my son whom he was representing.
Michael also understands the disease of addiction and most importantly the possibility of recovery with the right treatment. Michael was willing to work diligently in having bail reduced and my son transported to the proper facility, Livengrin Foundation, for addiction treatment. My son was provided the opportunity to get well instead of sitting in a jail cell. With Michael's support, my son began the journey of understanding himself and making some major positive changes in his life which included making amends for the crimes he committed in his addiction. Michael was prodigious!
Michael met with us weekly in order to make sure my son was doing what he needed to in order to be best prepared for his court dates. Michael knows the law and he knows how to do his job well! He delivered his presentation to the court in a gracious manner and with the utmost belief in my son. He had several witnesses testify. Michael was able to explain to the Judge and the District Attorney the entire picture of the charges against my son and most importantly the changes in my son over the past ten months. After Michael's defense presentation, the District Attorney commented on record to the Judge that he has never heard such profound changes in a person as was being presented this day! The Judge agreed that, he too, was impressed with the changes he was hearing about in court regarding my son. Michael Parlow believed in my son from the first day he met him. He supported us through this journey that lasted well over a year. Michael made himself available to us in person and by phone. He was there. Michael's staff were compassionate and supportive every time we called or came in for an appointment. Michael's fees did not escalate when we needed to meet weekly over a six week period. He charged a flat rate for representation and was willing to spend as much time as necessary to provide the best outcome for my son.
My son came home with me that day after court because of Michael Parlow's ability to explain to the court and present the entire scenario of the situation. My son was guilty of the charges. My son was given the opportunity to seek medical treatment for his disease of addiction instead of sitting in a county jail because of Michael Parlow. My son received years of probation, community service, compassion from the courts and a future life with his children with Michael's representation. Michael is an exceptional, outstanding, professional attorney who is passionate and devoted to his client and the law. He knows the law! I have the greatest respect and accolades for this impressive, notable attorney, Michael Parlow!
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.
I would highly recommend
Paul Lang was a great defense attorney. Not only did he make me feel comfortable and explain everything thoroughly, he made it a very easy process! I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need!
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.
