You won't find a more qualified, sincere lawyer.
I hired Alan to resolve a years-long custody issue. I was hesitant to hire a lawyer at the beginning, and went unrepresented and was completely taken advantage of. Alan was able to reverse an erroneous court order and give me back the rights I should have had all along as a father. Alan truly came through through for me, and he's the only lawyer I will call!

Alan Ross Review
My lawyer, Alan Ross was able to get my 2 disorderly conduct class 3 misdemeanors reduced to a summary offense without a fine. I am from out of state and he was able to finalize everything virtually. He understood me and my situation. He was also prompt, personable, compassionate and knowledgeable.

GREAT DEFENSE LAWYER
I experienced Allen’s professionalism and passion to his craft. My son was arrested on illegal firearms possession. His license was revoked without his knowledge. Allen gathered all the facts and presented them at the pretrial hearing the charge was dismissed!!!! Allen is a great lawyer!!!!!

Unbelievable Service and Results
Alan came to the rescue immediately for a client of mine with a Florida federal case who was arrested while on pretrial release in Pennsylvania. As soon as we hung up from our initial phone call he set to work. He managed to move the court date up by two weeks and negotiate a phenomenal resolution of all four original charges to a single non-criminal violation. He was able to accomplish everything on my "wishlist" to mitigate the damage to the federal case. He patiently explained the distinctions between Florida and Pennsylvania law so I understood how the PA process worked. He kept in close contact and gave me daily status updates to pass on to the client. And perhaps most amazingly, he did all this on the honor system, jumping into action without a formal representation agreement or an up-front retainer, simply because he trusted a fellow criminal defense lawyer. Alan will be my go-to for any future PA cases and I recommend him without hesitation.

Amazing!
Attorney Alan Ross is amazing! He stepped into my case after I had been in DCP for 12 days. My family hired him on a Wednesday and I was released on that Thursday! I do not live in PA, and I was arrested in Harrisburg for charges that did not warrant incarceration. He was able to get the charges dropped, and I had a small fine. Without him I would have been in prison for just under a month before I was scheduled for my preliminary hearing He had it all handled in one day! I didn't have to travel all the way back to PA from SC for more court appearances. Alan Ross is affordable and expedient. Mr. Ross exceeded my expectations and is definitely true to his word. I am forever grateful! I highly recommend him for your legal counsel!

Helpful, Responsive, Thorough
I contacted Attorney Ross after being charged with a felony PWI regarding a medical marijuana container that was found by police in someone else's car. I wasn't living in the state of PA anymore and did not know that these charges had been filed. Alan made it possible for me to appear by phone/video for court dates, which was great, but he also fought for me to get the felony charge removed. Medical marijuana laws are new and complex, but Alan was able to navigate me through this unjust charge against me. I also had a warrant for a very old charge in a different county, and he was able to handle that with me appearing virtually as well, with very minimal court costs and fines. I am so thankful that I gave him a call. He followed through on everything he said he would do. He was responsive to questions and thorough in his work representing me.

Amazing guy!!!
My fiance was sitting in jail for 3 weeks in NY, Alan got him out very shortly after contacting him (before I even put the retainer down!!) And had the case completed as time served. He has been an amazing help and I recommend anyone who needs help getting out a bind to contact Alan!

I highly recommend Alan. He’s very professional, quick, and helpful. I was in a bad financial situation that he was able to work with, and I had two separate cases. One being a small amount of marijuana and the second being a domestic violence. He was able to take care of both cases at once along with being able to work along with my work schedule for court dates. He was able to get some charges dropped and the domestic dropped down to a disorderly conduct. I was very pleased with the end result, and I will be recommending Alan to anyone that asks if I know of a good attorney.

An Attorney for you
Alan Ross wasn’t originally my lawyer I paid for a different lawyer but the lawyer I paid for started having medical issues so Alan took over my case, even though I initially wasn’t his client he still did everything in his power to help me the best he could and did a fantastic job. I was in the ARD program for 2 years, with Covid and working 50-60 hours a week I wasn’t doing much community service so after the 2 years and I didn’t complete the course they scheduled a hearing. Even though I still had 19 hours of community service and owed 700 dollars to the program yet Alan got my charges reduced to a disorderly conduct and I am now a free man. If I ever need another Attorney Alan is the one I’m going to.

Quick, Fast & Done.
I was so nervous when we got pulled over and my husband was charged with a small amount of medical Marijuana and paraphernalia. When we went to the preliminary hearing, Alan went back and talked to the state trooper involved (who I must say was very professional in his approach with us from the beginning). By the time he got done talking to the state trooper and the judge, both counts were reduced to a disorderly conduct and we just had a fine to pay. Alan also spent some time with us explaining the law so that we were better informed about the laws behind Medical Marijuana, use, DUI, travelling with and possession of, and testing for. Alan knows his job and is very professional, and he will now be the first person we call about anything we have questions about regarding the law. Thanks Alan, we appreciate you!

Possession/paraphernalia charge from State Police down to summary
Quick, easy communication and up front about expected outcome. Showed up to the prelim and it was already handled, then once in the courtroom was able to again reduce the fines. No criminal charges and reduced fines. Very satisfied with the results.
