I want to thank Michael and his team to help me go through this long process, it was not easy but him and his team treated me like their family and always ensured me that everything would be ok. I got charged with a Felony and I thought my future will be over because it seemed impossible to fight off this case. Before choosing Michael to be my attorney, I was worried about my decision because i never met him in person and i only knew him by researching him through multiple sources of media. I have to admit it was the best decision of my life. Michael ensured me that he would be able to help me get out of this and get my life back. As he promised, we are able to bring the charge from Felony to 2 misdemeanor. It was an unbelievable result. Without him, I don’t think I would be able to have this result. Even though, the case is over, I still have a small litigation to take care of and without hesitation, I decide to continue hiring him and his team to represent me. I would recommend him to everyone. Please don't hesitate give him a call and he will help you.

What can you say about a man that tells you "don't worry, I'll take care of your daughter as if she was my own" and then does just that? How about "THANK YOU" from the bottom of mine and our family's ever so grateful heart. Michael and his team, from the moment we met him, did exactly what they said they would, the listened to us and went right to work. Our daughter's case was one of the worst "witch hunts" I've ever seen by law enforcement and they put our daughter and this family through hell, but Michael told us, "have faith and let me do my thing" and that's exactly what he did. He took our calls, he took our texts, even on weekends and during his vacation. To watch him in court, as my wife said "He's awesome", takes no BS from anyone and defended our daughter as he said he would. Michael, in our eyes, is a hero and forever in our hearts as family.

Michael Scafiddi and his entire staff were outstanding professionals during a very stressful time in our lives. Our son was charged with several felonies related to a serious mental health manic event. His legal knowledge, serious compassion and outstanding negotiating skills secured the appropriate long term, mental health, inpatient treatment facility resolution to his case, which saved our son's life. Michael was extremely responsive to any of our communication needs. He truly embraced finding how to facilitate a resolution to the case through many different legal avenues culminating in finding the appropriate mental health treatment for our son. His added above and beyond, consistent and tenacious approach to facilitating a positive outcome for the case was extraordinary. He pursued every avenue and resource with multiple agencies and courts to have the case come to a successful conclusion. His guidance, explanations and support to understand and navigate the legal system through a very intricate path was hearth warming. Michael’s true dedication to his client and their family, the legal expertise exhibited, and the compassion to save a person’s life during this legal process was overwhelmingly amazing. The outcome to facilitate the appropriate mental health treatment and lessening of the charges has provided an opportunity for son to pursue the inpatient and transitional mental health help he needs. Words cannot express how Michael and his staff are truly valued by our family. We would highly recommend him as a competent, professional attorney who provides above and beyond dedication to his client. We thank Michael for saving our son from a prison sentence or a certain path of a manic event which may have caused his death. It is rare to find anyone so committed to saving a person’s life.

I picked a lawyer for my son from 2000 miles away based on a brief phone conversation with four different attorneys. I'm glad Mr, Scafiddi was one of them. Both Mr Scafiddi and his partner Ron Powell moved my son's case to an excellent conclusion in a timely manner. I could not have picked a better team to represent my son. Not only was the outcome better then I ever expected but his fee was more then reasonable. I thank both of them.

Michael Scafiddi is someone who will fight until the end for you. His entire practice functions like a family. I never thought I would feel so safe and comfortable throughout the process that I went through. There was no one else that could have handled my case and amazing outcome that Scafiddi produced. I am so thankful for finding him and the kindness that he showed me. Working with him felt like I had someone who genuinely cared about me and that was going to do everything in his power to ensure a positive outcome for myself and my future.
Thank you so much, I will forever be grateful

Most people turn their noses us when they hear the word "lawyer", but Mike's office has been amazing at dealing with my case.
In July 2014, I was accused of stealing property from my former high school, and as a result, the police came banging through the door with a search warrant. After 2 hours of interrogations in my dad's office with a detective who didn't care about my rights, I gave a false confession which would have hung the case in any other circumstance.
After searching around online, plus recommendations from friends, I found The Law Offices of Michael Scafiddi through the main Shouse Law Group website. I filled out the online form, and sent it, and in 5 minutes, Michael called me back, and decided to meet at his office. I initially met with Scot Neudorff, and he was very open about the possible outcomes of the case, and where it could go. After the initial meeting, we retained them on the spot. Concurrently, the investigating detective kept trying to push his way into my life, contacting potential employers, and following me around almost everywhere. As soon as we paid the retainer fee, Scot briefly left the room, and a few minutes later came back and said he called the detective, and told him to back off.
Lone behold, I was facing 7 felony charges with a potential punishment of 5 years in state prison.
My initial arraignment was handled by Ricson Dakanay, and the later ones by both Ricson and Ben Cates. They also paired me up with Rory Daly, who was excellent at handling all the "little facts" in the case, and was always there if I needed his advice, and even checked in with me a few times a month, just to see how I was doing, as did Mike and Ricson a few times.
There was also some items taken from my house due to police misconduct, and Mike was extremely helpful in getting those items returned to me in a timely fashion.
The results obtained by a plea bargain were no less than superior, and after 18 months, the DA agreed to revisit the case, and make the necessary changes to the convictions at that time.
All of which would not have been possible without The Law Offices of Michael Scafiddi.
Thank you for getting my life back on track

In need of a Defense Attorney to defend a family member accused of a felony, I turned to my sister in-law a paralegal for advice. My case was sensitive in nature so retaining an attorney with experience based on the accusations and that could defend us in Juvenile court was paramount. My sister in-law turned to her colleagues for advice and recommendation.
I was informed by my sister in law that Michael Anthony Scafiddi came highly recommend and that I contact him immediately. Needless to say, I contacted Mr. Scafiddi and schedule a consultation. My initially impression of Mr. Scafiddi was one of candor, integrity and most importantly his drive and commitment to help us see this through to the very end.
Mr. Scafiddi and his staff radiantly navigated on our behalf a defense so perfectly that the outcome at the end of the hearings expressed favorable. Should the outcome of the hearings expressed unfavorable the consequences could have been harsh. I express my gratitude to Mr. Scafiddi and his staff for their kindness, understanding, and above all helping my family get through this very difficult situation. Mr. Scafiddi, my family really appreciates all that you have done for us.

Michael Scafiddi is an extremely knowledgeable attorney with integrity and gumption. I was facing horrific criminal charges and Mr. Scafiddi took care of me and my case from day 1 with grace and confidentiality. He has great relationships with the courts, local law enforcement, and the district attorney's office which is a definite plus. Not only were the charges against me dismissed before the preliminary hearing, but my life was restored to what it was prior. The office staff is kind, caring and confidential--just what you need during stressful times. I'm not sure where I would be today if it weren't for Mr. Scafiddi's expertise and perseverence; I am so thankful I won't ever have to find out.

I never thought in a million years that I would need a lawyer to defend me. But when that day recently came after someone alleged that I had committed a serious crime against them, I was in a panic. I was scared to death that I was about to go to jail and lose everything I had. I reached out to Mr. Scafiddi and he consistently and professionally reassured me he would do everything he could to defend me. That was an understatement! Mr. Scafiddi made me feel as though I was the only client he had. His quick and dedicated work got my case rejected by the District Attorney's office. If you ever find yourself in need of legal representation look no further than Michael Scafiddi. He truly is the best!
