  • Brian M. Fishman

    It is without hesitation that I endorse Stephen Misko. He is one of the top criminal defense attorneys in Western Pennsylvania. How does he know how to cross-examine a police officer? Because he was one. How can he point out the flaws in the prosecutor's argument? Because he was one. Mr. Misko knows the prosecution case better than they do because of his experience. Let him put that experience to work for you.
