If you are reading this review, it is likely that you have found yourself (or a loved one) in a difficult (possibly scary) legal situation and are looking for someone to help. With the hundreds (if not thousands) of criminal defense attorneys in Pittsburgh, who do you choose to represent you?
After speaking with several candidates, I chose attorney Mike Worgul as my representation. Why? Even though they've all passed the bar, attorneys are NOT all created equal.
It was evident from my initial conversations with attorney Worgul that, not only was he intelligent, quick witted and superbly experienced - but that he also had a genuine interest in protecting my legal rights.
Moreover, Mike was compassionate, responsive and trustworthy. He presented me with an honest assessment of my situation, and considering the specifics of my case, quoted a reasonable fee. I also had interactions with Attorney Samir Sarna from the Worgul firm. Samir was an incredibly high-caliber individual as well.
In court, Attorney Worgul aggressively defended my rights. I could tell instantly that Mike was "at home" in a court room. (Some attorneys have little actual trial experience, choosing instead to persuade their clients to accept plea deals for the majority of cases.) Thanks to Mike's efforts, when my case was presented to the Judge, all charges were dismissed.
If you or a loved one are looking for a defense attorney, you NEED Attorney Mike Worgul in your corner. I encourage you to stop reading reviews and just give Mike's firm a call. Once you do, you can rest a little easier, knowing that you are working with the BEST criminal defense attorneys in PIttsburgh.
Mr Worgul has done a terrific job for us. I would definitely recommend him and retain him as my lawyer.
WHEN IT COMES TO PROFESSIONALS MOST PROFESSIONAL DON'T HAVE A HEART BUT MICHAEL SHOWS COMPASSION TO HIS CLIENTS IS VERY RARE SPECIALLY FOR A LAWYER . MICHAEL EXPLAINED EVERYTHING TO YOU AND IF YOU DONT UNDERSTAND SOMETHING HE TAKES HE'S TIME TO EXPLAIN IT TO YOU BY DETAIL MICHAEL HELPED ME OUT ALOT AND IF I HEAR THAT SOMEONE NEEDS A LAWYER I WILL MOST DEFINITELY LET THEM KNOW WHO TO CALL THANK YOU MICHAEL
I have worked in the law field for over 23 years. Through my experience, Attorney Worgul ranks with the best lawyers I have known. His knowledge of the law, experience and caring of his clients is stellar. I have health issues and Attorney Worgul understood and took them into consideration while working on my case and made it easy for me. He is a spectacular attorney and I would recommend him to anyone I know. He came through for me when I needed him the most. Thank you Attorney Worgul.
Hired Mr. Worgul for my case. Didn't inform me of much being as though it was my first incident. He got my charges reduced from simple assault for fighting, and harassment to a summary offense which was fine. He said he charge $300 for expunging the charges. I pay him cash upfront. A year go by I change jobs to find out its on my state background check. I went to clerk of courts in which I owe court fines so it cant be expunged until I pay fine. The clerk explained expunging a record is only $100.00 and tell me I cant get it expunged for 5 years. I call mike worgul, to talk to him he tells me he taking his kids to school and always brushing me off. That has nothing to do with my situation. He should've explained everything I would've kept my money that he don't want to give back.
Exceeded expectations. Not only is Mr. Worgul's professionalism nothing short of exceptional but he posses a sense of humor, of which, makes his personality welcoming. I would unequivocally recommend him to individuals who are looking for a trustworthy, experienced, and knowledgeable attorney.
Mr. Worgul, you rock dude!
I hired Mr. Worgul for a family member who was being held on a probation/IP violation. He went to work right away on the case kept in contact with me as much as his schedule allowed and was very professional as well as easy to communicate with. The recommendation of the court ranged from house arrest to 2-4 years in the state prison since this was not his first time violating probation. He negotiated for a lesser punishment and got the judge to rule in favor of his client agreeing to parole him out. We are expecting him home within the next few days. We couldnt have been more please with work done by Mr. Worgul or the outcome of the hearing. Yes I would recommend Mr Worgul for your need for a lawyer.
I am EXTREMELY happy with my results.
I contacted Michael Worgul regarding a DUI charge. He FOUGHT for what was most important to me... NO Jail time and NO License suspension.
Michael is very Professional and Accommodating. I highly Recommend Attorney Worgul !!!!
I had recently contacted Mr. Worgul about my legal problems. At first I could not get a hold of him so I left a message within minutes he had returned my call. I asked several questions which he quickly and efficiently answered and explained the process that I will be going through. Mr. Worgul was patient and reassuring about a positive outcome. I would highly recommend Mr. Worgul to all of my family and friends.
I had a DUI in 2006-- I had done everything that was asked of me ( payed fines, surrendered license, ARD classes) and I had all the paperwork to prove this.
I had a personal matter that I was in court for (I was obtaining a permanent PFA) when all of the sudden I was put in cuffs, arrested and walked over to the county jail where I became an INMATE!! I was confused and extremely scared. After 24 hours incarcerated my mom came to visit me and said she had already spoke with and hired Mike Worgol for me, I was shocked and put to ease when my mom said to me " I have met with him, he WILL take care of this and get you home where you belong"
From one county to the next ( I had to be transferred) I was incarcerated for just under 5 days. I went to my hearing (which was a virtual heaing in the county jail) they had said my proof of home ownership and employment had been provided- I have a clean record outside of my one incident in 2006 and I was released within 3 hours OOR ( on own recognance).
I was released on Friday at which time I immediately texted Mike to thank him. He had assusred me at that moment not to worry he was going to get to the bottom of this, he told me to rest up and call him on Monday. I spoke with him on Monday, I emailed all my documents over to Mike who instantly confirmed what I had thought I spent 5 days in lock up for no reason.... over many phone calls and texts back and forth we had met in his office where he spent about an hour going over everything with me and got me prepared for my court hearing . From the day I left his office to the day of my last hearing he was amazing! Mike was efficient, always availalble and quick to respond and was extremely empathetic with me and how stressed and worried I was and my entire family as well.
A few days before my final hearing he called me and said" Just relax, all is well. We should be in and out in a few minutes with a full dismissal" The big day came and I most certainly was stressing! Given the past , my faith in the court system was diminished completely and I will not deny I know Mike could see my fear and worry from the minute he walked in. Mike said "Let's go! I am confident this won't take long and I am confident in the outcome" We walked into the courtroom and within an hour we walked out!! I never saw a judge or anything ..... just Mike!! Mike walked up to me and smiled said" It's over!! The case was completely dismissed and I ensured this time all the paperwork is in the court systems records, in a few short months this entire thing will be completely removed and your record will look as if nothing ever happened! "
Needless to say for the first time in months I went home that day RELIEVED !!!!!! I could never thank Mike enough for all of his hard work in this quite unique case. I knew I did what I was supposed to do and still had this fear that something was wrong or missing.... was I supposed to serve time?? Pay more?? I was constantly consumed by this one bad decision I made in 2006 and for it to be haunting me in 2013 so unexpectedly left me drained in every way possible. Mike was absolutely right, he did take care of it!!! He was the best and I most certainly keep his card with me and his number in my phone!! If you are looking for the best of the best.... it most certainly is Mike Worgol!!
Thanks again Mike for all your time, dedication and hard work!!!
