The best in the business
I hired Attorney Paul Missan to help me with an upcoming case I had. It was very short notice. Called on Friday and my arraignment was Monday. He took care of everything. Went to the hearing a week later and Attorney Missan had the case DISMISSED! If you need a lawyer, don't hesitate to call Paul Missan!

Paul was great!! I live in NY so I couldn't make it to my court date, called Paul and he was a able to get me a not guilty verdict without me even being present!!! So thankful for him and his secretary they were very helpful and transparent with everything and reasonable price thanks to him I was able to keep my job and everything worked out perfect would absolutely use him again if needed too and would most definitely recommend him for any legal troubles!!!

My Attorney
He was readily available and turned a bad situation into a non issue quickly and decisively. He has done work for my family, and my wife felt the same way. If i need an attorney again Paul will represent me.

Case Closed
Paul is a very excellent lawyer and a good person to be around. He got ALOT of stress off my shoulders by getting my case dismissed and I couldn’t be more thankful. He has a wonderful secretary who was very sweet and helpful. PS. FreeBird

My go to.....guy
Every time I have needed Paul he has always been a call away. I moved out of state about 10 yrs ago. But Paul always remembers me and my calls if nothing but advice he gives it honestly. I was kinda upset he didn’t get me off at first but looking back now it could have been much worse. I thank Paul for being a stand up lawyer, man, and friend. I highly recommend him and it’s not enough to just say lawyer. Paul is a stand up person..if it can be done Paul can do it.....thank you agai.

Disorderly Conduct Charge Dropped
I hired Paul S. Missan to represent me on a bullshit disorderly conduct charge where a police officer said my words caused another person to jump me in a parking lot which he Paul Missan argued in court that was my First Amendment Right for freedom of speech. I was very satisfied with the way Paul stood up for my rights and the exhilarating compassion that Paul Missan showed in the court room. If I ever run into another legal problem where I need a lawyer I will definitely use him again. THANKS PAUL

Elated client
Paul Missan is a miracle worker! Professional, proficient, and gets results. Was able to get some serious charges against me dropped on the first shot. Best decision I made was choosing him to represent me. Would recommend him to anyone looking honest, no nonesense representation!

No nonsense attorney...
Just want to thank Paul for representing me. He deserves 100 stars for the job he did for me! He is a no nonsense attorney that sticks to the facts and fights to make sure the truth comes out. He will call people out when they lie, and if necessary file charges against individuals who do lie. Thank you for being a great attorney!!! I hope to never need representation again but I know who I will call if I do.

The only call I make when I need legal representation.
Mr. Missan is a rock star. He helped me get ARD several years ago for a non-vehicle related alcohol charge. A year later he somehow managed to get me ARD a 2nd time when I got my first DUI. Recently (5 years later) I was pulled over and charged with marijuana possession and paraphernalia. Mr. Missan worked his magic once again and got the D.A. and judge on board for me to plead guilty to a MUCH lesser charge. If you need legal help- Mr. Missan is your guy. His rates are reasonable and he's worth EVERY penny.

Class A legal representation
Paul represented my daughter and negotiated a deal down to a citation. Couldn't be happier with his professionalism and responsiveness. I would absolutely recommend to others and use again if I had to!
