Pittsburgh Criminal Defense Lawyer

Overview

My name is Michael Worgul. I was born and raised right here in Pittsburgh, and it's probably no surprise that I've settled down here too. I went to Duquesne University for my college and law degrees; right after being admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in 2004, I joined Arthur Bloom & Associates, LLC, a small private practice. I later joined the Allegheny County Office of Conflict Counsel for two years, representing indigent criminal defendants who needed legal help...

My name is Michael Worgul. I was born and raised right here in Pittsburgh, and it's probably no surprise that I've settled down here too. I went to Duquesne University for my college and law degrees; right after being admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in 2004, I joined Arthur Bloom & Associates, LLC, a small private practice. I later joined the Allegheny County Office of Conflict Counsel for two years, representing indigent criminal defendants who needed legal help. I'm a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association, Criminal Litigation section, as well as a member of the Pennsylvania State Bar Association. I'm also admitted to the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania to represent clients for federal crimes.

I started my own practice in 2008 to help people through these tough and stressful times - people like you.

PRACTICE & LEGAL PHILOSOPHY
As you may sense from viewing other pages on this website, I am a trial lawyer first and foremost. For the past 10 years, I have successfully handled every aspect of the criminal spectrum - from college students' cases (disorderly conduct, underage drinking, etc.) to murder and manslaughter. No matter the severity of the charge, I treat every case as though it will go to trial, which is unique.

When you're searching for a lawyer, you should be aware that many attorneys will immediately encourage you to take a plea agreement. This is more cost-effective for them. I certainly have negotiated settlements for many of my clients, but this is never my initial inclination. I believe that you have a right to trial and will go all in to make sure you get the best possible outcome.

This is why 80 percent of my practice is dedicated to trials and litigation. In fact, I have over 30 jury trials under my belt (most lawyers average 7 jury trials over an entire career). So I have the proven mettle and lack of anxiety necessary to compete with the prosecution and the police. I would be happy to use this experience to defend your case successfully in court. If you're not sure that a trial is what you want, I can give you an honest assessment of your possible options and outcomes.

OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE
When I'm not in the office, you can usually find me spending time with my friends and family. My wife is also a criminal defense attorney, though her primary practice is in appeals. We have one daughter. Since both my wife and I are from the western Pennsylvania area, we see our families a lot.

On Sundays you might find me at my mom and dad's house for dinner with my siblings.
I enjoy remodeling homes, so on the weekends I'm usually fixing up a home to be rented or sold. I also play guitar, piano, and drums and would consider myself an arts enthusiast.
