Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    40%
    Starting my career as a prosecutor has enabled me to view a criminal case from both sides. I'm able to effectively dissect the details of each case, while examining the matter from a prosecutorial perspective and a defense standpoint.

  2. DUI and DWI
    40%
    DUI cases are won and lost on filing Motions to Suppress: Maybe the stop was illegal. Maybe the arrest was unconstitutional. Maybe the police forced you to give blood. The details in a DUI case are critical to winning your case.

  4. Speeding and traffic ticket

    Traffic citations can be devastating for people, especially those who drive for a living. Rather than simply paying the ticket, we have the right to go to traffic court and fight the ticket to save points on your license and premiums on insurance.

Exceptional Legal Representation!
I cannot express enough gratitude for the exceptional legal representation provided by Paul Mallis. From the moment I was reached out by him which was referred to me from another attorney, I felt reassured and supported during what was undoubtedly one of the most challenging times of my life. Paul demonstrated an unparalleled level of expertise, professionalism, and dedication throughout every step of my case. He provided a strategic approach to my defense and instilled confidence in me from our initial consultation. Paul meticulously examined every detail of my case and also took the time to genuinely understand my perspective and concerns. I had a high BAC level which warranted a potential jail sentence. Moreover, Paul was able to reduce the charges and keep me out of jail and even removed house arrest from the equation as well. His ability to communicate complex legal concepts in a clear and concise manner was truly impressive, ensuring that I remained informed and empowered throughout the entire process. What truly sets Paul apart is his unwavering commitment to achieving the best possible outcome for me. Thanks to Paul's exceptional legal representation, I received a favorable resolution to my case that exceeded my expectations. His dedication, integrity, and genuine compassion for me are qualities that I will forever be grateful for. I wholeheartedly recommend Paul to anyone in need of a skilled and compassionate criminal defense attorney. I cannot thank him enough for the peace of mind he has provided me during a challenging time.

Probation/Parole violation & warrant
I called Mr Mallis after the Sheriffs department came to my home to arrest me for absconding for the past 5 years. Luckily I was not home when the sheriff arrived. Mr. Mallis told me right away that there is a very real possibility that I “MAY” have to turn myself in to resolve the warrant. Mr. Mallis contacted the courts and my probation officer. Mr. Mallis then contacted me and suggested that I enter into a “rehab” so that I could get clean and off heroin. I did as i was told and when I was able to provide a clean iron to the probation department, I told Mr Mallis, he again contacted probation and set up a time for me to see my probation officer (haven’t seen her in over 5 years). He assured me that they would not take me into custody if I provided the clean urine. Which I did. I never heard of Montgomery county not arresting someone with an active warrant, but because of Mr Paul Mallis I am able to write this review from home. Mr Mallis gave me sound advice and worked magic for me. I never spent a day in jail on this warrant and I owe it all to Mr. Paul Mallis. I would recommend him for any criminal case you may have. He is honest and tells you all the possible outcomes. I know as a fact that he will do everything humanly possible to achieve a positive outcome for you.

Will never go anywhere else
I had a criminal case that could have resulted in serious state time. Paul is the absolute best. I once never not trusted or lost faith in Paul. He took over took it to the hearing and made sure that I secured the best outcome allowed. He's professional and caring. He will put his client first at whatever cost. I hope I never need another attorney again but if I do it would be Paul that I call and lock in as my attorney. He negotiate ld and fought and prepared more then anyone could have. If you want the best please look no further.

Great team
I hope you don’t need his services, but if you do, Paul, Shana, and his team are great. He was easy to get ahold of, talk to, and felt comfortable from the first interaction. He has sound advice and supported me through the whole process. I truly appreciate what he was able to do in a tough situation. We were able to achieve the best outcome.

The Lawyer You Need
Paul is an excellent Lawyer, he’s a straight shooter and he won’t hold any punches with what you can expect. My case was very tedious with a lot of moving parts but, he did not disappoint at all there was a lot of money I could’ve had to pay, and a decent amount of time I could’ve done, but after Paul looked into it he changed my outcome for the better. Before even retaining him, he told me what to expect and how everything was going to play out once he took my case, and he did exactly what he said he was going to do. He always stayed in contact with me so I never felt lost in the process, with clear communication, and one thing that stood out to me the most was one time we were in court and a Judge told me how good of a Lawyer he is. I would recommend him to anyone that needs good representation he absolutely will get you favorable results.

Great Service
In less then 1 week of hiring Paul. He got my husbands case thrown out. He stayed in direct contact with us every step of the way. Whenever we called his office everyone was so friendly and helpful. I’ll definitely be a returning customer for any future help. I highly recommend his services!!!!!! Run don’t walk if you need legal assistance!!!

Excellent Attorney
Paul is an exceptional attorney who helped me out on an ongoing case from 2021. He helped the charges to get reduced, and helped me the entire way and made sure I was calm and collected. I hope I never need him again but if I did I would use him. Thanks Paul.

Works to get you what you need
I hired Paul for a criminal matter after having a bad experience with another attorney at the preliminary hearing. Paul was able to get the verdict that I needed to remain employed and continue on with life. Paul was thorough through out the process, clearly explaining possible and probable outcomes. He did not instill a false sense regarding a positive outcome. Paul was available whenever I had questions whether through email, in-person, or on the phone. If anyone I know requested an attorney, I would recommend Paul with 100% confidence.

This is the guy.
I got framed by a road rager who gave the cops the convenient half of a video of an accident he had caused. I'm a lawyer myself, so the charges could have had repercussions for my law license. Unlike any other lawyer I called, Paul called the cops immediately, like the minute he got my payment, and immediately diffused 95% of the legal risk I was facing. That one call he made was worth every penny of his pre-hearing fee, by itself, no exaggeration. He then met me in court a few months later, and negotiated away virtually all of the rest of the problem. Paul went to Michigan, which is a top 10 law school, and he is savvy as bleep. Our justice system is not just, but you will have a better chance of not having it bleep up your life with Paul as your lawyer. If you are worried enough that you are Googling lawyers, pay this man the money and let him help you. It will be worth it.

10 out of 10 - HIGHLY RECOMMEND
I could not recommend Attorney Paul Mallis more! 4th of July weekend of 2022, I was pulled over for speeding. Things escalated quickly and it regrettably turned into a DUI charge for my daily, prescribed medication. Before getting in contact with Mr. Mallis, I had spoken to another law firm. The lawyer at this firm made me feel like there wasn’t a chance in hell I could win this case. In fact, I’m pretty sure those were his exact words to me. I felt so defeated and scared for my future. Thankfully, Mr. Mallis was referred to me by the next firm I reached out to and the second we spoke was the second I felt relief. From the very first conversation, Paul made me feel SO supported and heard. I just knew he had to be the guy! After a few conversations we decided to bring in a Mandated Court Reporter and an expert in Medical Toxicology named Dr. Lawrence Guzzardi. Leading up to my preliminary hearing (exactly a year later on July 3rd) both Attorney Paul Mallis and Dr. Guzzardi made it clear they had my back and they were going to take this case as far as necessary to get my win! Don’t get me wrong though, our goal was to get everything thrown out at the preliminary, which spoiler alert, is exactly what happened! Paul and Dr. Guzzardi worked seamlessly together to prove my innocence. In the most professional way possible, they ripped that Trooper a new one. In the end, the Judge made a statement along the lines of “we obviously have learned a lot and still have a lot to learn” which was just the cherry on top. Because of Paul Mallis, I walked away with a “5 over the speed limit” and the hope that people like myself will stop being charged with DUI’s because of some terrible stigma. Anyone who gets to have Mr. Mallis in their corner is a lucky person! If you’re reading this because you are in need of a lawyer - I highly recommend you reach out now.

DUI tractor trailer driver
This man is a great lawyer. I fired my last attorney to hire Mr. Paul, after my attorney told me to take ARD program for a case I was not guilty fo.. the police did not do their job and Paul was on top of every mistake they made. He will not bullshxt you and he will tell you the true things 95% of lawyers won't help you with he even gave me adice to get my money back from my last lawyer and after weeks of trying the lawyer returned my money. Mr. Paul will help you every step of the way. He's a very confident lawyer and he's organize, before you go waste your big hard earned money on shocka check this guy out he's your best chance at a fair trial or withdrawal. Today June 15th Paul was able to get my case thrown out due to him emphasizing lack of evidence and poor arrest Ling procedures by police

Hes a Super Lawyer
Paul Mallis did exactly what i needed him to do. He was great, he got citations and charges settled before they can even be filed for me. He left me with the feeling secureness and most of all relieved. He was well worth it. Paul Mallis will get things done for you.

If you need an attorney to get the job done , here he is !
Paul was very quick with responding, and once I hired him he did everything he said he was going to do, if I had questions he had an answer and if he didn’t he would have one quick. I had an old bench warrant from 2017 for a vop they were trying to give me a recommendation for 6 months and he got me in and out in 3 weeks with time served and an interstate compact so I could return to my life and put this all behind me finally . One of the best attorneys I’ve had. Definitely recommend.

Words cannot express how professional, transparent and supportive Paul Mallis was with my mother’s case. He returned our phone calls in a matter of minutes and always has his client’s best interests at the forefront of his representation. I cannot recommend him and his staff enough.

He is relentless and fights for you
Paul was professional and had great attention to detail from the moment I hired him. His communication skills are a rarity in todays world. I never had to guess or call after him to see where I was with my case. When we did not get the outcome we wanted Paul could have thrown in the towel but instead he took it to the higher ups and got the decision overturned. Hands down the best lawyer I have had the pleasure of doing business with. He is passionate about his profession and applies himself 100%. I am forever grateful to Paul Mallis he has helped me turn the page to a new chapter in my life.

Great Lawyer
Paul was very honest from the very first call. He took our Daughter's case with very short notice. He showed compassion and empathy towards her. He was very attentive and always followed up with updates. Her case was complicated with the new DUI law that went into effect, but he managed to get her the best outcome and get her the help that she needs to succeed in her recovery. We highly recommend Paul, he was truly a blessing.

Review for Paul Mallis
Paul was with our family every step of the way during our Son’s case this pat year. He was detailed, specific and honest in his assessment of where we were and also where we were headed. Compassionate, yet direct, Paul was a wonderful attorney for our Son. He lowered his sentence and worked extremely hard in his defense. Our outcome would not have been as favorable without his input. He is the best.
