About me

I operate the Law Office of Michael F. Niznik which represents clients throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey. My practice focuses on criminal defense litigation -specifically, DUI/DWI defense, drug defense, and violent crime representation. I pride myself on being available for my clients 24/7.  Every one of my clients has the ability to contact me when they need me and I regularly meet with clients on the weekends. My number one goal in any criminal defense matter is to have the charges dismissed and the defendant's record cleared.
