A few years back, attorney Michael Fienman represented a Philadelphia man on a DUI case. Recently, while serving his probation term from his DUI, the man was caught driving on a DUI suspended license and charged with insurance fraud. Our client was allegedly involved in an accident that occurred at the intersection of Ridge Pike and Butler Pike where it is alleged that he rear-ended the car in front of him and fled the scene. Once again, the man retained the legal services of Philadelphia criminal defense attorney Michael Fienman to help him through the insurance fraud charges he was facing as a result of this accident.

With attorney Fienman acting as a shield between the police and his client, the prosecutor was unable to prove that our client was at the scene of the accident and could not substantiate the insurance fraud allegations against him. Although the case could have been won at trial, for a variety of reasons, our client did not wish to go to trial to resolve these issues, and attorney Fienman was quick to support his decision. However, Fienman, working tirelessly for his client, was successful in negotiating with the district attorney to achieve a lesser offense of disorderly conduct. After pleading guilty to disorderly conduct, our client was able to avoid significant state jail time, additional license suspensions and save thousands of dollars in legal representation. The man can now put this case behind him with a successful outcome.

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.
