I am a lifelong resident of Alburtis. I served my country in the military as a Marine in Vietnam and a Soldier (JAG Attorney) during the Gulf War. I retired from the U.S. Army in 2000 and opened an office in Macungie, PA.  I primarily serve Lehigh, Berks, Northampton and surrounding counties. I am a former Army JAG attorney with over 30 years of legal experience. I have served as a Special Assistant for the US attorneys office, and was a Federal Treasury Agent with the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms.  I have been in private practice for 20 years in Macungie, Pa, since my retirement from the Army.  Count on us for honest legal services.

Commercial vehicle citation
Our experience with Attorney Stump was incredible. He immediately went to work on our case and was in constant communication with us. He genuinely cared about achieving a satisfactory resolution for our situation. In less than a week Attorney Stump got us a court hearing with a favorable outcome. We could not be happier. If you are looking for an honest, dedicated and sincere lawyer, who will go above and beyond to get results then give Attorney Stump a call, you won’t be sorry.

Rewrite of My Will
I contacted two lawyers to help me with my Will before I got to Atty. Stump. Neither of them wanted to zero in solely on my specific need but rather wanted to include other issues which I had already dealt with. When I contacted Atty. Stump, I knew I was directed to the right person ... he was gracious, performed the work that needed to be done, and I am so pleased with the outcome. I told Atty. Stump that he is my lawyer from here on in.

3rd DUI
When I first spoke with Att. Stump on the phone he told me he would work his butt off for me. He exceeded that. He listened to my goals/wishes and even though they were not conventional, he followed through and delivered on each one. He not only made me feel comfortable but my family as well. While he never promised anything, he was honest about the best case scenario and the worst. He worked for the best case scenario and to my amazement, delivered on that. My wife and I have decided to also entrust him with our will and estate planning. There is no better choice than Att. Michael Stump.

Sale of my mother's house
Attorney Stump helped me work through the steps involved with selling my mother's house by P.O.A. He's very down-to-earth and knowledgeable. My phone calls were returned promptly. The whole transaction was completed faster than I dreamt it could be done. I will highly recommend him to anyone!

DUI Third Tier with Accident
Attorney Stump was excellent. Most of the attorneys I contacted would do a consultation over the phone. Most of those did not feel sincere. Attorney Stump met with me in person and listened to all of the details and looked over all of the court paperwork. He was very honest and upfront with what I was facing and gave me his honest opinion on what the penalties would be for my case. He was with me every step of the way and answered every question whether I called or emailed. He attended court with me and I felt very comfortable. All court and proceedings happened as he described. Third tier high BAC with a single car accident with injuries. Attorney Stump negotiated with the DA and I received ARD with 60 day license suspension. Attorney Stumped assisted in getting Ignition Interlock in my car which resulted in me not being able to drive for only three days. Attorney Stump did not disappear after my trial. He answered all questions after my trial and through my ARD. Attorney Stump was more expensive (not by a large amount) than other attorneys but worth every penny.

DUI Case
Mr. Stump is a fantastic attorney who really goes to bat for his clients. It doesn't hurt that he has some serious swing in Lehigh County as well. If you are looking for an attorney that will give you the honest truth but ALSO do what he says he'll do and more then Mike Stump is the man to do it.

Speeding Ticket Help
Attorney Stump is a very professional attorney who was able to get me a great favorable outcome for my case. I would use him again if I ever got another speeding ticket.
