He has it all....experience ,knowledge and honesty.Had a Dui 2nd offense in a county known to be tough on defendants .Ken kept me informed and truthful what to expect. He promptly answered my calls and questions. Facing jail time, house arrest and 18 mo loss of license, with his expertise and use of exceptional expert ,he negotiated a settlement without jail time ,house arrest and reduced my license suspension .If you need a great well qualified esq I highly recommend Ken. He really does care!

I am a young woman who got into some trouble a few years ago and had DUI charges brought against me. While getting this charge I already was on a 6 month probation. So I was nervous as hell! I did some research and this name Ken Chotiner kept popping up everywhere. So I began to ask around and to my surprise a lot of people have heard of him, I gave him a call immediately. There was no answer so I left a voice message and he got back to me instantly and made me an appointment to come speak with him. After I let him know the trouble I had recently got into while on 6 month probation, he was completely honest with me. Ken let me know the worst and best case scenarios so that nothing would catch me off guard if it didn't go in my favor. But he did reassure me that he would do everything in his power for the best. After about 4 court appearances, on the last one my case was thrown out! Now, a few years later I need an expungement of my record. Guess who I called? Yep!! Thanks Ken, you are the best!!

Ken Chotiner is a great attorney! He is honest, hard working, and very good at what he does. Ken answered all my questions and explained every step of the legal process me without making me feel dumb for asking. He took the time to listen to my side of the story and gather all the information before deciding to take the case or not. He will be honest and tell you the truth if he will be able to help you or not, he will NOT tell you what you want to hear so you will hire him. Take the time to call or meet with him and if he's able to help you, you will leave feeling confident in your decision to hire him and be confident that he can if not win, at least help the outcome. The Chotiner Firm also is not super expensive. Dependinf on the type of representation you need, he will work with you somehow.
I didnt think anyone could help me win a dui that I had been falsely accused of but Ken, after going over the case and evidence went to court for me upwards of 5 times and had the case thrown out. His legal strategies, knowledge of the law, and litigation abilities are above and beyond expectation. Ken will go above and beyond for his clients. He is very passionate about his clients and their cases. He will do everything he can to ensure that you get the best representation possible.
I was very pleased with my overall experience as Ken Chotiner as my attorney.

As a fellow, practicing DUI attorney, I would recommned Ken to any client facing a DUI in Philadelphia. His relentless attack of the methods in which breath is tested has resulted in cases being dismissed against his clients and potentially effecting numerous others who were wrongfully charged.

I endorse this lawyer. Ken Chotiner is one of the best lawyers in Philadelphia. His knowledge of criminal law and DUI law is very impressive and I highly recommend him to any perspective clients who are arrested in Philadelphia for criminal and DUI charges.
