Criminal Defense Case Results

Mr. Mallis’s client was charged in Bucks County with armed robbery, witness intimidation, kidnapping and related felony charges. After a four-day jury trial in Bucks County, Mr. Mallis’s client was acquitted of the most serious felony charges and released from prison. Through vigorous cross-examination, Mr. Mallis was able to successfully show that the Commonwealth’s “star” witness’s testimony was riddled with lies. “The Commonwealth’s ultimate obligation in a criminal prosecution is to seek justice and truth,” argued Mallis before the jury. Mallis went on to say that the Commonwealth shirked that obligation with respect to his client, and “the jury was able to clearly see through all of the so-called ‘star’ witness’s lies and deceipt.” After a short interview with a reporter from the Bucks County Courier Times, Mallis stated, “the jury got it right, this was clearly the right outcome.” Bucks County Witness Intimidation Case

Young and having zero prior contacts with the criminal justice system, Mr. Mallis’s client was charged in Philadelphia County with conspiracy to commit attempted murder. After having reviewed hundreds of police reports, transcripts and witness statements, Mr. Mallis was able to show the prosecutor how unreliable their case was with respect to his client. Their entire case, according to Mallis, rested on the testimony of co-defendants who were convicted liars and thieves. “My client wasn’t even present at the scene of the shooting,” exclaimed Mallis to a reporter of the Legal Intelligencer. Based on that information, Mr. Mallis was able to secure a favorable outcome for his client which enabled the client to an immediate release from prison. According to the client’s father, “My kid was facing some serious charges. I had interviewed with supposedly ‘super’ lawyers, but Paul was no doubt the best choice. Because of Paul, my kid is home for the Holidays.” Philadelphia Attempted Murder Case

After having been stopped by the police for speeding, Mr. Mallis’s client was found to be in possession of narcotics medication.

Bankruptcy Case Results

“I filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy with Mr. Young in 1988 and thereafter have had three family members file through Mr. Young’s office. All of those people were happy with his services, and I have recommended numerous other friends. While bankruptcy is not something anyone ever wants to have to do, if you do have to file, you should receive professional advice that is presented in a compassionate, not judgmental, fashion. If you are ever considering bankruptcy, you would be doing a disservice if you did not first speak with Paul Young or Young, Marr & Associates.” Anonymous

“I had a Judgment served against me, and my bank account was frozen. I called other attorneys none of which would take my case, since I did not have enough up front money to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. However, when I explained to Mr. Young that my money was frozen and that I would find a way to pay, he was very understanding and worked out satisfactory payment options with me which were extremely reasonable. Since that time, I have successfully completed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, and I truly do not know how I would have been able to manage at that time without the understanding of Paul Young, and his firm.” T. Vu

“I contacted Paul Young at Young, Marr & Associates first to consider a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Luckily, my mortgage situation was resolved, and therefore, it was not necessary that I use his services for that matter. However, I continued to contact Paul and decided that a Chapter 7 bankruptcy would make sense for both my wife and me. Not only did Paul and his staff answer our questions, but they continually took our phone calls and made us feel so relaxed about the process. I know that both my wife and I drove you nuts with our frequent calls and questions, but they were truly compassionate, understanding people, and I truly believe we would not have made it through the process without them. Thanks again from your favorite clients.” Don and Arlene C.

“My mother was in over her head in credit card debt, and I had spoken to a few different lawyers who all wanted an exorbitant amount of money to represent my mother. When I spoke to Paul Young, Esquire, he understood that my mother was on a fixed income and worked out payment arrangements which made it possible for my Mom to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. My mother was terrified of the process, but after speaking to Paul, she felt totally relieved. After the hearing in which Steve DeMaio, Esquire attended, my Mom was fully relaxed and was no longer being harassed by the creditors. I really believed that it saved my Mom’s life. Thank you.” Marissa M.

“When we came to see Gail Marr, Esquire, we were behind on our mortgage and car, and really wondered if we would be able to dig ourselves out. However, Gail was totally patient and understanding and that made us feel more relaxed, and we were able to successfully complete a Chapter 13 Plan. We are now 5 years removed from bankruptcy, and it was the best thing that we had ever decided to do.” Tina and Bill W.

 

Disability Case Results

“I have already recommended Paul Young numerous times. He was honest, explained endlessly in terms that were understandable. Paul Young guided me through the process from beginning consultation to the end of case. Highly satisfied and grateful for his expertise.” Leslie

“In 2009 I had back surgery that went wrong. After working 16 years for the same company I had no problems receiving my short term disability benefits. When it came time for my long term disability benefits, that’s when my troubles began. I had to fight for (and finally sue with a different attorney) my long term disability carrier to get the benefits I was due. Part of my settlement was offset by Social Security Disability benefits. I thought that would be easy but it was not. I wish I had called Paul Youngs office in the very beginning. After contacting Paul and understanding why my Social Security benefits were not going to be easy to get, I started the process with him. He kept me informed, helped me to understand the process and was there for me the entire way. He was empathetic, sympathetic, and very knowledgeable about what was going to happen, when it was going to happen and what the outcome would likely be. I never felt pressured to say or do anything that was not the truth. It was refreshing to know that he understood what I was going through. I truly believe that if he felt like I didn’t have a case, that he would not have even taken it on. I would HIGHLY recommend Paul Young and his team to anyone who was going to have to go through what I did. Thank you Paul Young!” Robin

“I have had the pleasure working with Mr. Young on two separate instances; one during a bankruptcy case and one during a disability case. Both cases were handled with the utmost professionalism. I was completely comfortable. Mr. Young made sure I was completely aware of every option available to me and took the extra time needed to make sure I was satisfied. He also was very accommodating to my entire family as I had to bring my young daughter to several appointments. He was very knowledgeable regarding both disability law and bankruptcy law. I would definitely use his services again and would also recommend his services to anyone.” Robert
