I cannot speak highly enough of the exceptional legal representation provided by Loren Dickstein. Mr. Dickstein recently assisted my grandmother with her DUI case, and his expertise, professionalism, and compassion were truly unmatched. From our initial conversation, Mr. Dickstein demonstrated a deep understanding of DUI law and a commitment to achieving the best possible outcome for my grandmother. His attention to detail and strategic approach were evident throughout the process, instilling confidence in us during a challenging time. Not only did Mr. Dickstein provide expert legal guidance, but he also showed genuine empathy towards my grandmother, easing much of the stress and anxiety associated with the situation. His transparent communication and willingness to address our concerns promptly were greatly appreciated. Thanks to Mr. Dickstein's outstanding representation, my grandmother's case was resolved with a result that exceeded our expectations. I am immensely grateful for his dedication, professionalism, and integrity, and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone in need of legal assistance. If you're looking for an attorney who will go above and beyond to achieve the best possible outcome for your case, look no further than Loren Dickstein. Thank you, Mr. Dickstein, for your exceptional service.

Loren was quick and professional in assiting me. He got an un-prosecuted arrest off of my criminal record in only a few weeks.

Loren made me feel extremely comfortable in a situation that has been one of the most serious of my life. The comfort didn't come from coddling, or selling false hope, and it definitely didn't come from empty promises. He is very proactive, very dependable and really upfront. The initial contact was when I called the 24hr office line, after business hours. I received a call, the following morning from Loren. I expected it to be a representative and was working. I was already nervous about my situation, but the fact that he "checked in", was a huge deal. He asked preliminary info like my court date and offense(s). My court date was way down the line, and I had 2 months to figure out representation and finance stuff. We followed up again, when he called a couple weeks later, but he let me know that I could contact him when my funds were ok. He let me know, that even though I was calling a month ahead of time, that if I didn't get the retainer funds until the week before, that the team was experienced and prepared. (*Fast forward tidbit**, I Called 6 firms in 10/2023.. *Mr. Dickstein and I have already been to court 3 times and received my sentence, and 2 of the 5 originally contacted lawyers, haven't even responded.) I gathered the funds and called back. He offered the interview flexibility between in-person and on the phone. For everything I've been through about this case, I opted to meet. The meeting was not very long, but factual and informational. When I would mumble nervously or jabber (a slight goofy thing about me..), he pointedly and calmly redirected to the facts and realities. I knew he was listening, but I was just at a shameful point in my life. It's a big deal, when you're reassured with FACTS and potential outcomes. I couldn't have hired better representation. Mr. Dickstein's appearance is professional and his eloquence is everything. He has a seriousness and class about him, which communicates comfortably in court. The judge will give you your 15 seconds, but might give your defense team, 3 minutes. When I say, that Loren made the MOST out of those 3 minutes?!.. Wow!. (We had three appearances, and he was early for every one. We always sat in the front row, which is best. Anyone in this situation, shouldn't be bumbling from the back, or stepping over people, while preparing to go before judgement.) He started with FACTS, mixed with some meaningful biography. He said everything positive and helpful about me, within the opening. Because my offense was so aggregious, the judge interrupted him. But then, my whole lawyer, didn't fumble and continued with other recommendations (a little more for me, but not at all what I could have been facing). He made sure to have a response to meet the judges discomfort/dismay. I never realized how fast, counsel has to speak to respond and present to the judge. As a side note, I've seen cases where lawyers fumble and stutter and shuffle pages, but I have never been more amazed than when I noticed that being ON POINT, was another one of his strengths. The fact that he remains organized and has already absorbed his clients backstory, while having the knowledge to speak quickly and CLEARLY to a judge, means everything. *Again, the lawyers communication means EVERYTHING. Judges hear tons of cases, and recognize excuses immediately. Loren made sure that I presented the best summary for my case. He summarized my main points, and balanced with what the judge wanted and needed to hear. My case was difficult for my family and livelihood. Loren secured the most favorable outcome we could have hoped for. I would recommend him to anyone trying to save their job, or life, or livelihood.

Robert J. Andretz, was my attorney in the Livingston County Courts. I hired him after I was not pleased with results of another lawyer. Mr. Andretz was able inform me of what to expect and guide me through the process. He welcomed me texting him with any questions or concerns I had, and was quick to respond, unless he was in court. My situation was all new for me and I was nervous. I am glad that I went with another attorney, Robert J. Andretz.--This was a self-defense case, and he would go back and forth with the courts to work on the best option.

I highly recommend hiring Mr. Loren Dickstein and his team. From the very beginning of my case I was nervous that I would be sent to jail because of the facts of my owi case and with a BAC on the higher side. Loren and his team worked endlessly and together on my case, were very compassionate, and cared about what happened to me and my future. He was always available if I had any questions, and able to give me the most favorable outcome that could come out of this with a very tough judge in the 48th district court. My original charge was reduced, no jail time, and I was given probation. During my sentencing, Mr.Randy Lewis stepped in to help and advised and assured me that he would not let me down and he did just that! I am very grateful to everyone involved and could not have picked better representation!

I hired George to represent me as a victim's advocate in a domestic violence case. I was the 'alleged victim' in a situation that was grossly misrepresented from the start. He quickly identified issues that could cause self-incrimination if I were to testify. He did NOT let the prosecution bully me into testifying without the protection of immunity. Immunity was granted because of his expertise and knowledge of the law. I was given the opportunity to testify without fear, set things right, and exonerate someone who was falsely accused of domestic violence. George was direct, honest, and didn't sugarcoat anything. He was always prompt in his communication and made sure I understood my rights and my options. In short, he gave me and my family our lives back. He even held my purse when I thought I couldn't bring it with me to the stand (turns out I could. Sorry George!) If you're looking for fair, aggressive representation and someone who truly makes you feel understood, look no further. He's absolutely not afraid to win

“An advocate, in the discharge of his duty, knows but one person in all the world, and that person is his client. To save that client by all means and expedients, and at all hazards and costs to other persons, and, amongst them, to himself, is his first and only duty; and in performing this duty, he must not regard the alarm, the torments, the destruction which he may bring upon others.”
– Lord Brougham, House of Lords (1821).
