When I first met Ari I was still whirling from no longer being a witness, but suddenly “the target of a federal investigation”. While cinema is rife with attorney/detectives of near superhuman abilities, in the real world it’s hard to imagine being assigned a better Public Defender than Ari. I found him genuinely caring, yet tempered with the gravitas of a seasoned veteran in a profession where life can literally hang in the balance of a few words. Sharp and perceptive, Ari knew what to say and ask to cut through the whirlwind and address my most pressing concerns. He made it clear that what had happened, happened, and WE would assess what that was exactly, what my role had been, and from those any potential liability. Ever straight forward, Ari informed me he was not particularly familiar with the field of law my case fell under… but he would be. That promise I felt was made as much to himself as to me and was born from his love of the law and passion for being a Public Defender. It is an incredibly challenging and vastly underappreciated career despite being crucial to the function of our judicial system. A more suitable candidate to carry that mantle would be hard to find and I will remain eternally grateful I had Ari represent me. Without the efforts of him and his team my life would almost certainly have been forever altered. It’s no exaggeration to say I owe them not just my freedom, but a life still rich with possibilities.

One of the best
Ari was professional and compassionate during a difficult and unfortunate time for me and my family. His legal expertise and experience are unmatched. He truly lives up to his reputation as one of the best Federal defense attorneys in central PA. Highly recommended!

Great Laywer with Strong Morals
I was being arraigned on charges in Dauphin County on Mall Rd., I did not have any representation. Ari interrupted the proceedings and asked the judge if he could speak with me for a moment, he represented me on the spot. I cannot speak highly enough of Ari, this gentleman has my deep gratitude, and utmost respect. Even though Public Defenders sometimes get a bad reputation, Ari has proven that there are good caring and talented Public Defenders. Their case loads are high, so keep that in mind, but he tries to never let you see that he's doing 20 different things at once, when he is with you, its you, him and your case. Ari, if you have an opportunity to see this, Thank you.
