An attorney who, no matter how hard the fight, has the heart to answer the bell?' Success is often hard-fought – I wouldn't expect it to be any other way. I drive hard, I go the distance, and the results I get for my clients speak for themselves!"

If you have an underlying problem that led to arrest for a charge such as drug possession, DUI in Pennsylvania, or possession of marijuana, we will work towards a resolution within Philadelphia's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program or another solution involving rehabilitative measures such as treatment, probation, and community service. Regardless of the situation surrounding your Pennsylvania arrest, the LLF Law Firm Team will work closely with you to determine your legal goals and fight for them with your best interest at heart until you are satisfied with the outcome or have reached the end of the legal process.
