Thank you for taking so much time for my initial consultation. I had no idea what filing for bankruptcy entails nor did I realize that I have other options. I also want to thank you for answering my questions. I have worked with attorneys in the past who seemed annoyed by me asking questions. I was pleasantly surprised when you contacted me with a follow up call to ask if I had come up with any additional questions. I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family members who may be in need of legal services.

Where do I begin? I cannot praise Mr. Bishop for what he has done for me. At first I thought there was no hope in my getting the help that I needed and then Mr. Bishop was assigned to my case and I couldn’t have been happier with the final results. Adam is a kind and caring person and only has your best interest at heart. He will listen to what you have to say and all the while making notes to help you in your case. He will contact you by email, phone or in person to assist you. If you have any questions, he will listen and then offer suggestions that will help you understand and continue in your case. In court, he will keep you informed as to what is going on and if you have to worry from the prosecuting side. He will then address the Honorable Court in defense of your case and give his all to make sure the out-come is in your best interest. I highly recommend Mr. Bishop for all your legal issues as he is highly professional and you can rest assured that he will do “everything” he can to help you win your case. Contact Mr. Bishop now if you have any legal concerns with your life. He can, and will, help you have a better outlook on your future. Thank you Adam for helping me and to those that will follow, I congratulate you in your professionalism and humanity.

Attorney Townsend defended me on a case four years ago in the Harrisburg area, Dauphin County. The trial lasted four days, with a verdict of not guilty. Attorney Townsend was very diligently in researching all of the evidence, and planned the defense strategic. I believe if it was not for the hard work and time that Attorney Townsend put into this case, the outcome would have been a lot different.

I fully recommend Attorney Shrager for anyone who gets a DUI. I can't imagine too many other lawyers in Pittsburgh have the knowledge he does. Office staff were super friendly, and seem to really know people at the court. FYI the parking lot across the street is mighty convenient.

She is an exceptional attorney who will go above and beyond for you. I can't sing her praises loudly enough. She put my mind at ease by doing the foot work regarding my case-making sure we were well prepared and had everything in order to present before the judge. She made herself available at all times and always returned phone calls in a timely manner. I can't speak highly enough of her work ethic, professionalism, attention to detail and genuine care and concern for her clients.

Michael Worgul's career has been 100 percent dedicated to defending the rights of people who have been accused of a crime right here in the Pittsburgh area. Our attorneys will walk you through the Pennsylvania legal system and lay out the options available to you under the law. What sets us apart from other defense lawyers? They will never convince you to take a plea or settle if you want a trial. When you’re a client of the firm, you're a team. The attorneys will help you understand the options so you can make the best decision for your situation. If you want a trial, they will fight for you. Other attorneys might try to discourage trial because it can be anxiety-inducing or costly for them. Worgul, Sarna & Ness, Criminal Defense Attorneys, LLC care about the best possible outcome so you can move on with your life. I started my own practice in 2008 to help people through these tough and stressful times. I enjoy fighting for my clients to help them achieve the best possible outcome. When you’re searching for a lawyer, you should be aware that many attorneys will immediately encourage you to take a plea agreement. This is more cost-effective for them. I certainly have negotiated settlements for many of my clients, but this is never my initial inclination. I believe that you have a right to trial and will go all in to make sure you get the best possible outcome.
