Working for You, Winning for You

Whether you or someone you love has received a DUI, drug, gun, theft or other charge, it’s important that you know that an arrest does not mean there will be a conviction. Regardless of the severity of the crime, everyone charged (everyone) is entitled to the highest quality representation from an experienced, professional attorney who will give you the personal attention you expect and deserve.

It’s crucial that you talk to a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney as soon as possible in order to protect your freedom.

Michael B. Lederman worked as an assistant district attorney in Allegheny County, and has more than 15 years experience as a prosecutor and defense attorney in Pittsburgh. His work as a former assistant district attorney in the Allegheny County District Attorney’s office, coupled with his years on the defense side, make him especially qualified to provide superior representation for his clients.

Mr. Lederman is well versed on all aspects of the law, and has played an integral role on both sides of the courtroom. He has earned a reputation for being dependable, honest and always prepared to act in his client’s best interest. And he makes it his mission to always keep his clients fully aware of the progress of their case.

Providing the highest quality representation doesn’t mean just telling the client what he or she should do. Rather, it’s important to foster an open and active dialogue so the client becomes an active participant in his or her defense. Only then can a client make smart, informed decisions.

Finding a lawyer with the skill and experience to handle your case is not always easy. Unlike on TV, most cases do not require a full-blown trial. The best results are accomplished by lawyers who have the expertise to successfully try a case when necessary, but the ability to negotiate a partial reduction or full withdrawal of the charges when that’s in the client’s best interest.

Getting You the Results You Deserve

Suffering a personal injury can be the first step in a downward spiral that can claim your health, your assets, your family, your work – your life. Being injured in an accident can instantly leave you unable to work and facing a mountain of medical bills. Mr. Lederman understands.

If you, a family member or a friend has been injured in an accident, it is imperative to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can help you recover financial compensation from a negligent party. Mr. Lederman is dedicated to holding the responsible party or parties accountable. His goal is to put you in a position to recover the maximum amount of financial compensation for the losses you have incurred, be it medical expenses, lost wages or any other losses resulting from your accident.

In most personal injury cases, the opposing party will be represented by an insurance company whose main goal is to avoid or minimize the payment to those who have suffered injuries. These behemoths employ tricky strategies that take advantage of those who don't fully understand their rights. Don't let this happen to you. Mr. Lederman will assiduously guard and protect your rights and interests and will not let you be bullied by insurance companies.
