Mr. Dickstein represented me in a case where I was accused of armed robbery in Pontiac, Michigan. Three white teenagers accused me of robbing them with a gun. Loren was the only one who believed in me. He took the case to jury trial and by the time it was over, the jury was ready to convict the witnesses of purjury. I was found not guilty. He gave me my life back. Even when my family doubted me, Loren stuck by my side.

I was charged with domestic violence. Went to jury trial. My lawyer was Loren Dickstein. He was awsome and the prosecutor was overwhelmed. I was found not guilty by the jury after 15 minutes of deliberations. The judge said Mr. Dickstein's trial technique was one of the best he's ever seen. The officer in charge said if is son was ever in trouble he would hire him. The only person who walked out of court angry that day was my ex-wife. He's a great lawyer.

I was charged with several counts of CSC that I didn't commit. I had hired an attorney who was not fighting for me. I fired that lawyer and hired Loren Dickstein. He fought the case like I was his family. He always returned my calls and was prepared at every court date. He wasn't afraid of the prosecutor or the judge (who everyone said was the toughest in Oakland County - Andrews, I think). We went to jury trial and the prosecutor offered me a misdemeanor. I refused because I was innocent. We took the verdict...not guilty. I never had a doubt because he was fighing with everything he had and he had all the witnesses and evidence lined up. I refer him everyone I know and I only hear good things. He saved my life and that of my family.

He is a great lawyer. I was charged with OWI third offense which is a felony and I was looking at a lot of jail time, and losing my job. He filed a motion to dismiss the charges and proved that the police officer lied about my driving. The judge ruled that the stop was illegal and he dismissed the case. Needless to say, the prosecutor went crazy. I don't think any other lawyer would have fought so hard for me.

I hired Loren Dickstein to help me get my driver license back. I lost my license because of more than one OWI conviction. I stopped drinking years ago but don't believe in AA and had not gone in many years. I lost twice with two different lawyers before I hired Loren Dickstein. I have to admit that I was a little suspicious and really didn't trust lawyers too much after the previous results. Loren Dickstein promised me that he would give me the best chance possible if I followed his instructions and got him the information he requested. It took time and effort but we got it done together. He prepared me really well for the hearing and by the time he got done asking me questions, the hearing officer really didn't have too much more to say. Not only did we win but the hearing officer said how impressed she was with my recovery. Wow, what a different experience. You’ve shown me that some lawyers can be trusted. Thank you Loren, I really owe you and I will send you anyone I know who needs help!!!

Loren is very smart and found evidence that got a PPO that was filed against me by my ex-wife dismissed. I watched the judge uphold several PPO's before my case was called and I was very worried. Loren ran the hearing and got in everything we wanted to introduce. The other lawyer tried to get in some emails that my ex-wife created to look like they were written by me. Loren figured out how to keep them out and the other lawyer didn't know what to do. Beating my ex-wife at the hearing who was trying to manipulate the court with her lies made for one of my happiest days. I'm glad Loren was by my side and I would never work with another lawyer as long as he will take my case.

Loren Dickstein is a magnificent lawyer. We’ve worked together on several cases and I have never seen a more devoted, persistent and effective lawyer. He will do everything possible to gain any advantage on behalf of his client while always acting ethically and respectfully. He has earned the reputation as one of Michigan’s top defense attorneys. In cases he has handled for my clients who were facing potential immigration problems as a result of a criminal charge, Loren has been able to either win cases other lawyers didn’t think could be won or found resolutions that no one else thought were achievable. Our mutual clients have told me that they believe he was extremely fair with them, he treated them with courtesy and respect, and they hold him in the highest regard. I highly recommend Loren Dickstein as a criminal defense attorney.
Kirsten Hartig, DUI and DWI Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Loren is my former partner. We worked side by side for three years over ten years ago. Loren is still one of the smartest attorneys I have had the pleasure to work with. Loren is a true innovator in terms of his approach to defending his clients. He uses his superior people skills and legal prowess to either convince the prosecutor to do what he wants for a client or beats the prosecutor in court. Loren has consistently demonstrated a "no-holds-barred" approach to criminal defense and an absolute dedication to his client's interests. If you are looking for an attorney who will fight for you will everything in his power, look no further. I do not hesitate to endorse Loren.
