  • Sufen Hilf

    Loren Dickstein is a magnificent lawyer. We’ve worked together on several cases and I have never seen a more devoted, persistent and effective lawyer. He will do everything possible to gain any advantage on behalf of his client while always acting ethically and respectfully. He has earned the reputation as one of Michigan’s top defense attorneys. In cases he has handled for my clients who were facing potential immigration problems as a result of a criminal charge, Loren has been able to either win cases other lawyers didn’t think could be won or found resolutions that no one else thought were achievable. Our mutual clients have told me that they believe he was extremely fair with them, he treated them with courtesy and respect, and they hold him in the highest regard. I highly recommend Loren Dickstein as a criminal defense attorney.

    Loren is my former partner. We worked side by side for three years over ten years ago. Loren is still one of the smartest attorneys I have had the pleasure to work with. Loren is a true innovator in terms of his approach to defending his clients. He uses his superior people skills and legal prowess to either convince the prosecutor to do what he wants for a client or beats the prosecutor in court. Loren has consistently demonstrated a "no-holds-barred" approach to criminal defense and an absolute dedication to his client's interests. If you are looking for an attorney who will fight for you will everything in his power, look no further. I do not hesitate to endorse Loren.
