My boyfriend was accused of assaulting an officer, and was thrown numerous charges of aggravated assault (felony), simple assaults, and DUI. Alfonso was able to drop the felony charge which was what we were most concerned about and a bunch of others which ultimately left my boyfriend with three years of probation & no jail time. We are satisfied with the outcome of our case, and would definitely recommend him.

Alfonso Gambone defended a friend of mine and the circumstances surrounding the case looked bad at best. Alphonso, through his expertise, research, and delivery successfully led my friend to a not guilty verdict on all charges. He's truly an excellent lawyer definitely the best in the city, probably the best in the state and maybe even the whole east coast. If i ever need legal counsel, this is my first and only choice.

Alfonso is a brilliant and aggressive trial attorney. His resume is flawless and what he lacks in DA experience he more than makes up for us an Army Prosecutor. Alfonso is a highly skilled criminal defense counselor and if he is within your budget you should be thankful for that and hire him. He is worth every penny.
I was in a self defense shooting with a car that was driving into me. My gun was legal and registered to me and I had a permit to carry firearms. The Commonwealth construed a series of lies to make me seem like a crazed animal despite having no previous criminal record. There was an alleged baby in the car I had shot at so the District Attorney's Office of Philadelphia was hell-bent on pursuing this matter and wanted a conviction with hard time attached to it...very hard time! I even spent an unnerving 30 days in prison before posting bail on half million dollars and hiring Alfonso! I was looking at 3 counts of attempted murder and aggravated assault. Also, one count of possession of an instrument of crime. The plea bargain was 6-12 years and losing a trial would have a resulted in a minimum sentence of 10 plus years! There would also be a complete cease to the upper-middle class lifestyle I worked so hard to achieve for the rest of my natural life, short of being a successful business owner. Needless to say the stakes were very high. I even had other high tier attorneys tell me I needed to avoid a trial at all cost. One of these attorneys that told me this was a close family friend!
Alfonso composed a brilliant trial argument for my self-defense based on the discovery evidence the Common Wealth presented. It was obvious he spent many sleepless nights preparing for this trial. Not once was he caught off guard or looked unprepared for the DA. He never once had his associates handle his affairs which I was appreciative of and what made me fear hiring other lawyers of his caliber. Alfonso is always highly charismatic and well spoken, with an unparalleled vernacular and dictation. His opening and closing arguments are heartfelt and awe-inspiring. Alfonso has a gift for presenting an argument to a jury. He doesn't give the jury a speech, he speaks to the jury, and that's a big difference between a skilled and mediocre counselor. He does not give them over complicated mumbo-jumbo...he speaks to them in a way you can feel and understand. One of his best traits is his ability to cross examine. Alfonso is extremely aggressive and a fierce cross examiner. I didn't text him too many times through out the process but whenever I did he always got back to me the same day. He even came to my residence to go over testimony with me and review the scene! Alfonso is highly ethical. All he ask is that you do not lie to him and tell him the truth. He will find a way to make things work in your favor. Throughout the process you can see a fire ignite in Alfonso and he gets into a mindset where he eats, sleeps, and breathes your case. Throughout our court time I felt like he was an agitated uncle, hell bent on ending this madness. He felt like family not hired counsel. After a 3 day jury trial and and half a day of deliberation I was found not guilty of all charges against me! Alfonso won me my life back and saved me from over a decade of incarceration against a Common Wealth that lies to get convictions. You need the best against the city of Philadelphia and Alfonso is the best. He is even in the process of helping me retrieve my wrongfully ceased firearms and expunging this arrest and trial from my record.
When you go agaisnt the District Attorneys Office of Philadelphia...one of the 6 or 7 biggest cities in this country, they have the country's most brilliant prosecutors. You need the best, and Alfonso is the best. His trial experience in violent crimes and criminal accusations is unrivaled. I would recommend Alfonso to friends and family. All my friends who saw him in action switched the card they carry in their wallet!

The moment we met with and hired Mr. Gambone, he took charge of a very difficult situation. Mr. Gambone told us exactly what he was going to do and how he was going to address all of the legal issues. He is a man of his word. He took our phone calls day and night, he never left our side. In my opinion, there is no better criminal attorney. He does not just take the case, he lives and breathes it. Thank you Mr. Gambone for all that you have done, we could not have made it thru this situation without you.

In Fall 2015, I was in midst of my downward spiral in my battle against alcoholism. As a result of poor decision-making, I got my 2nd DUI as the result of a car accident with a child in the car. I was facing 90 days jail time, EWOC, reckless endangerment of another person, along with a slew of traffic related driving charges. To say that I felt my life was over at the time, is an understatement. I reached out to Alfonso trying to retain legal representation quickly, as he was the only lawyer to assure me I had options and just needed to breathe - he was ready to tackle this head on. His focus, compassion, extensive legal knowledge, and dedication to my case was immediately apparent to me. We reviewed my options from possible jail time to Drug Treatment Court to entering a treatment facility (which I desperately needed). As a result, he aggressively negotiated on my behalf with the DA to enter treatment as opposed to jail, which no doubt saved my life and has allowed me to retain my career, my family and deal with my alcoholism head on successfully. Throughout the whole legal process, his first concern was how I was doing personally, as well as my family, assuring me that we needn't worry about the legal intricacies of my case, and to focus on getting healthy - he had it handled! Even after my case was finalized with the courts, he's continued to support getting my life on the right path by helping me work with the state to possibly get an occupational license, which has been above and beyond what I hired him for. If you are reading this and don't know where to turn, rest assured that you won't regret having him represent you no matter what the legal battle is that you are facing. His professionalism, dedication, compassion and 'pitbull' legal acumen are without question, proven by the successful outcome of my case and his ongoing support of me personally post-trial. I'm forever indebted to him and his practice for helping me out of the darkest points to a life that is now positive, healthy and focused. Thank you!

From the beginning Mr Gambone was exceptionally reassuring. He went out his way to say "everything will be okay" and "I would handle the situation" every step of the way. I must have literally heard those phrases 1000 times during the process. It actually really stood out because the very first lawyer i received consultation from charged double his price and made sure to emphasize the fact that he may loose and "anything could happen" which, although may be true, is not necessarily reassuring at a time in which you are vulnerably afraid of the end result of your specific case. Moreover, my case was dismissed. I cannot make this stuff up. Dismissed! Great guy and overall great lawyer.
