While some crimes are more severe than others, summary offenses can complicate your life in various ways. They are expensive, potentially embarrassing, and can negatively affect a job search. Not long ago, attorney Fienman assisted a young man who was issued a summary offense for disorderly conduct for allegedly causing a disturbance outside of a bar. To effectively and permanently deal with a situation that only arose because he drank a little too much one night, he retained Philadelphia defense attorney Michael Fienman.

With considerable experience helping clients get second chances, attorney Fienman negotiated to have the young man admitted to a summary diversion program. By completing a diversion class and paying a small fine, this client could have his case dismissed and expunged from his record, making it easy to move on.

The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
