Effective and Responsive Attorney I received a traffic citation for going over the speed limit on the freeway and Attorney Klein was very responsive and helpful for getting my penalty reduced. He had great advice for me during the free consultation and he provided me with helpful resources to bring to the traffic court. In the end, he managed to remove the points that I would have received for this citation from my record and reduce my fine to peanuts on the dollar. Thank you Attorney Klein!

Had charges that involved jail time and points Ellis helped me in my case where jail time was potentially involved and points on my license with suspension… Ellis got the case dismissed and the points lowered to a $200 traffic fine citation!! Amazing lawyer, friendly, helpful, determined, knowledgeable, and understanding!! Certainly going to recommend him to everyone I know. Thank you Ellis!!

Biography

25 office locations throughout Pennsylvania. Call for nearest office location.

I am a former Senior Deputy District Attorney with personal experience in over 10,000 court cases, ranging from minor traffic offenses to homicide. In addition to criminal and traffic defense, I have been practicing Bankruptcy since 1999 and have helped thousands of clients get a Fresh Financial Start.

My practice is limited to Criminal, DUI, Traffic and Bankruptcy cases. I am NOT a general practitioner who handles many different types of law. Criminal and Bankruptcy law is the only law that I have practiced since I became a lawyer over 25 years ago.

Over the past 25+ years of practice I have worked with thousands of police officers and have appeared in court on countless occasions. Few attorneys possess my firm’s background and extensive experience in this area of the law.

CUSTOMER SERVICE - I treat clients the way I would want to be treated if I was experiencing legal problems – with honesty, kindness and respect. I do not tell clients what they want to hear just to get a case. I do not scare clients into retaining me. I will never say to a client “Don’t worry about it.” What I do is tell clients the truth, right over the phone. I call clients back, even at night or on weekends. Additionally, my staff is well-informed and very helpful if I am not in the office when you call.

FREE IN-DEPTH CONSULTATIONS - I gladly talk to new clients over the phone, for as long as you wish. I will answer every question that you have over the phone, or even in person if you prefer, for free. I will gladly explain all of your options, give you my honest opinion about what could happen to you and I even quote a fee and a flexible payment plan, right over the phone. I believe that an informed client is the best client. Again, if I was having legal problems, that is the way that I would want to be treated.

Legal Answers
111 Questions Answered
Q. Got pulled over with expired inspection, on the way to get new inspection got a ticket. How can I fight it?
A: Plead not guilty and either get a lawyer to go to court or go to court yourself. The police office may withdraw the citation if you come to court with proof. Good luck
Q. I just got a dui and have no prior alcohol offenses. I am on State parole in Pa.and I have 2 months left.
A: Getting treatment is always good for you and for the case. You should get a lawyer asap as you have to report the new arrest to parole and you could be facing serving a jail sentence for the violation. Good luck
Q. Can my son file for an early expungement?
A: If he was a juvenile at the time and he has since turned 21, he may be eligible for expungement. Your question does not give enough facts to be able to give you a proper opinion. More info would be needed in order to properly guide you.
