I want to express my appreciation for my attorney, Loren Dickstein, who represented me on a federal charge in Detroit, Michigan. Loren was a constant professional, highly intelligent, and incredibly clear in his communication. He made sure I understood my case, the charges, and all of my options. I appreciated that he always took the time needed to discuss these vital elements, even if he wasn't one for small talk. Dealing with the legal system was stressful, and there were moments of panic. But Loren was always patient, helping me stay calm and focused on what we needed to do. Loren's commitment to his clients is remarkable.

I am from the UK but needed to hire a lawyer to represent my father, who is a doctor in the US. My dad was charged in US federal court for healthcare fraud and bad prescriptions. Another lawyer gave us Loren Dickstein?s contact information and told us he was the best criminal defense lawyer in Michigan. We did a Zoom interview, and he was very impressive. I also talked with a couple of other ?heavy hitter? lawyers, but Loren was the most helpful and informative. Loren handled the case from the start to the end. My dad was extremely happy with the work Loren and his team did on his behalf. His charge could have resulted in 20 years in prison, but the outcome was only 1 year and 1 day. We were told by probation that he would serve his time in a halfway house. The other lawyers we talked with said to us that he would get years in prison (he probably would have if we?d gone with them). Loren is an incredible attorney. If someone is in a tough spot and needs help from a truly great attorney, my family and I highly recommend him for any criminal charges.

Loren Dickstein is an amazing lawyer, no doubt about it. I was in deep trouble, facing a heavy retail fraud charge, but Loren didn't let it scare him. He worked super hard on my case, and he got my charge knocked down to just a little disorderly conduct. No probation, no jail, just a fine to pay. That?s way better than I thought it could go. Loren knows his stuff and fights hard for you. If you need a lawyer who'll have your back, I say give Loren a call. He did great by me.
