    You may have read several reviews while trying to decide on the right attorney for your situation. If your research has led you to this website then your search can end here. Mitch Furman is an excellent choice for the job. I was in an unfortunate DUI situation where the police found me asleep in my vehicle and tried to charge me with a DUI. From the first court date until the last where I was found NOT GUILTY, Mitch was there every step of the way exceeding all of my expectations. I hope to never be in such an unfortunate predicament again however for those of you facing similar circumstances without a doubt Mitch Furman is the one you should call.

    Thank you soooo much Mr. Furman!!!

    Attorney Mitch Furman really exceeded my expectations as a Criminal Defense Attorney compared to all the other attorneys that I had interviewed and had thought of hiring. Not only was he available at all times for any questions that I had, but he really was superb at handling my case for a DUI when I was truly scared. I felt so alone, and his demeanor was not only extremely professional, but he was a real bull dog when it came to defending my case.

    I just feel so lucky to have had someone that was so skilled with my DUI case and really will be the attorney, no matter what the case may be, he will be my attorney for life!!

    He had the ability to make me feel at ease, and assured me that I was in the best of hands, and he just rose above the rest.

    There are some attorney's out there that make you feel like your just a number, whether it's about getting paid, or just the amount of clients that they need to fill their time.

    Attorney Mitch Furman puts everything else aside when it comes to each client and to me, that is what matters the most. Handling the case in the courtroom, he's fierce, and when it comes to the personal side of the case with his clients, his sensitivity surpasses them all.

    Thank you Mr. Furman!!!! I truly cannot Thank You enough.

    • I recommend Mechislav Furman.
    • I hired Mechislav more than 3 years ago.
    • Mechislav handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Let me just begin by saying that before I decided to hire Mr. Furman, I had interviewed 6 other lawyers none of which were as knowledgeable or as willing to take the time to discuss my case the way Mitch Furman did.

    I was charged with a DUI after my car was involved in a car accident after I hit a pole. Police were called by a passerby and when they arrived, the officer was rude and was insisting that I was drunk. The officer also interviewed two of my passengers who told him that I had a couple of drinks. I took all of the tests that the officer asked me to, and my alcohol level was .134. This was my second DUI arrest and I was positive that my license was going to be suspended for a long time.

    When we went to court, Mr. Furman first argued that since this accident occurred on private property my license could not be suspended and statutory summary suspension did not apply. After a hearing, the Judge reinstated my driving license. A few months later we went to trial and Mr. Furman argued that since there were passengers in the car and the officer did not see who was driving, the police could not prove their case. Once again the judge decided in my favor. Thanks to Mr. Furman I have my license back and was not found guilty for a DUI.

    • I recommend Mechislav Furman.

    • Mechislav handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Mr. Furman represented me in connection to the DUI arrest. Through his cross-examination of the police office, Mr. Furman was able to establish the no probable cause existed for a stop and was able to beat my DUI rap. I would definately use him again
