Client Reviews (Part 2)

An attorney who truly cares about his clients.
I received a letter from Mr. Klein's office after I was released on bail following an arrest for a robbery charge. It was my first offense, yet it was a very serious crime that carried up to 10 years in prison. Prior to contacting Ellis, I applied for a public defender because my family and I did not have the money to hire a personal attorney. The public defender I spoke to seemed very careless and told me I was most likely facing a maximum of 5 years in state prison and that my best case scenario would be 6 months to 2 years county time. I then decided to open the letter I received from Mr. Klein's office. After just one meeting with Ellis I knew that it was in my best interest to have this man represent me. He was very reasonable and understanding, and quite knowledgeable in criminal defense. He made no promises, but assured me that he would do everything in his power to help me through this difficult time in my life. And he sure did deliver. Not only did he have great suggestions to help me as a person, he also briefed me on what I could do to help my own case. We worked out a payment plan that he was very flexible and understanding with and to this day it was the best money I've ever spent in my life. He contacted me regularly to update me on changes, dates, case facts, etc. His staff was also very kind and courteous and always made me comfortable whenever I had to be at his office. And anytime I had questions or concerns, he was always available to answer whatever he could. Ellis was also hands on and personally involved in every aspect of my case. He did not delegate the work to another attorney like some other places do. Mr. Klein's expertise and experience was enormously crucial to my case and I would hate to think how things would have turned out if I had not opened his letter. When it was all said and done, I was given 1 year of probation. Quite a difference from the 6-24 months in prison the public defender had me hoping for. Ellis also ensured that my felony charges were dropped to less serious misdemeanors which will no doubt help me in my future. No words can express how grateful I am for Mr. Klein and all the hard work he put in to help me through such a difficult time in my life. A kind, respectful, and sympathetic man with a vast knowledge of the law. If you are truly concerned with your rights and freedom then you will not make the mistake of gambling with other attorneys and choose Ellis B. Klein to defend you.

Ellis B. Klein's response: "Ryan, thanks for the kind words. It was truly my pleasure representing you and I am glad you were pleased with the results. Best of luck in the future - EK"


Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
I cannot say enough about Ellis Klein, I knew as soon as I met him I had made the right decision toretain him for my sons case. He was very honest and forthcoming and didn't make empty promises.He was very professional, but very real at the same time, made us feel very comfortable. My son was looking at 2 felonies and possible 5 yrs. in jail. In the end he got 1 year probation and the felonies were reduced to misdemeanors, which most of the time is unheard of. I firmly believe, if wehadn't retained Ellis my son would be in jail right now. Bottom line is if you want an honest, caring,professional attorney Ellis Klein is the man to call.


Simply Awesome
I got pulled for 85/55 on i-95 in bucks county pa. I was worried that having a Delaware license may result in a suspension. i found Ellis through avvo and he gave me the guarantee that the ticket will be reduced else he will return fees. Went to the court this morning and got out with just a technical. no points no speeding ticket. definitely recommend ellis


A Perfect 10
Ellis Klein was very helpful with my case. He is very knowledgeable in the area of DUI and also very honest in all aspects. Very kind and respectful man and takes his time with you to thoroughly explain everything.


The Best in the Business
Thanks to Ellis, I had all my ducks in a row. It appears that all his other clients did too, and thats because of his excellent management of our cases. His services are affordable and he and his staff are accessible.
Ellis is well respected by the Judges we dealt with, the other Lawyers, and has a great relationship with Prosecutors and Law enforcement who are willing to work with him.
I am glad I chose Ellis Klein to represent me, and will whole heartily recommend his services to anyone who needs a Good Man, and a Good Lawyer.


Empathetic and Effective
Ellis helped me immensely in handling a first-time DUI. Although I had refused to take a blood test, he was successful in getting me into the first time offender program (ARD) so that I could avoid a long-term criminal record and minimize the duration of my driver's license suspension. Because I was able to complete my community service, alcohol evaluation and Alcohol Highway Safety course as well as pay all fines prior to my court date, I was eligible for the (6) month ARD program vs. the (12) month program which was an immense relief. Ellis and his assistant Lindsey were very empathetic and responsive and Ellis is very familiar with the court system and its members in Bucks County.


Well Represented by Ellis
Ellis is a consummate professional. His knowledge and understanding of the process was most valuable. His guidance and advice was honest and straight forward. He is easy to work with and made the case as painless as possible. I would highly recommend him to others.


Listen to your Lawyer!
I received a DUI recently and received a whole mess of letters from area lawyers offering their services. Ellis's letter stuck out because it was enclosed with a very informative book about the DUI process. I sought his free consultation and, because I work for lawyers, thought I could handle the rest myself given the information I received and the research I had independently done. WRONG. I thought my case would be simple, first offense, acceptance into the ARD program...but due to a detail that I had missed, not realizing that because of that detail the DA's office had some discretion in the decision, and the fact that I went about that process on my own, my application was rejected. It was at that point that I called Ellis to retain his counsel. He wrote an appeal letter to the DA to which we added many character reference letters at Ellis's suggestion. I know that without all of these letters an appeal would have gone nowhere and I would have had to withstand trial; he was able to negotiate with the DA and I was ultimately accepted into the program in exchange for a slight increase to my community service requirement. Ellis also represented me at my hearing (what would have been my trial) where I was able to see him in action. In addition to his solid and self-assured presence in the courtroom, he is charming and charismatic, and it is obvious that he has built a very good relationship with courtroom personnel on both sides of the bench. I know now that I should have retained him right from the start; I was trying to save money, but his fee was very reasonable and well worth the investment. In any event, it worked out favorably. Thank you, Ellis.

Ellis B. Klein's response: "It was truly my pleasure representing you and I am glad we were able to get the DA to change his mind and give you ARD. Best of luck in the future -EK"


Cannot Thank Ellis Enough!
I hired Ellis 6 months ago for my DUI case. He suggested ARD, as this was a first offence. He instructed I simply do alcohol related evaluations and other such classes along with community service. Once completed, we appeared before the judge, and I was granted pardon for my dreadful mistake. I will be on non-reporting probation for 1 year, and then the DUI vanishes completely off my record. I never plead guilty to the DUI and reserve the right to honestly state I have never been convicted of any crime, etc. on work related applications. Without the help of Ellis, my nursing dreams would have instead come to an abrupt and devastating end. Ellis was not only extremely knowledgeable, but very reassuring throughout the whole process. Given the exceptional service and representation, I would say he was more than reasonable with pricing. He, and his representatives, work tentatively to answer any and all questions, even after business hours! I can confidently say I suggest none other than Ellis to represent you, in the case of a DUI. I have even since then referred close family friends to his office. I can't thank Ellis enough for his services, for representing me, and for continuously keeping in touch throughout the terrifying process. IF YOU BY CHANCE SEE THIS, THANK YOU AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING!

Ellis B. Klein's response: "Thank you for the kind words and I am glad that this worked out well for you. It was my pleasure representing you and I wish you the best of luck with your nursing career. -Ellis"


Great Experience
If you have a criminal case in Bucks County, absolutely go with Ellis. I was facing many counts of felonies. I was cleared of all chargers contingent on a few hours of community service. He was in constant communication with the DA is well known there.


Thank You
Ellis literally gave me a new lease on life. I was facing a DUI, which would have affected my livelihood,my freedom and which would have left me with a criminal record. It would have been impossible to find gainful employment with a criminal record. Mr. Klein was able to have all the evidence suppressed and the conviction overturned by challenging the officers cause for pulling me over.He was very thorough, leaving no stone unturned. His demeanor in court was confident and knowledgeable. In a commonwealth of mandatory minimums he was my only hope. He saved my reputation and my family from facing serious economic hardship. Thank You


Best lawyer in this field.
I received Ellis' letter when I needed legal help desperately. I went to this website and found very impressive comments on him, which made me decide to hire Ellis to represent me for my legal case. The whole process and the ending story of my case proved that all those amazing reviews are true. Ellis successfully got the criminal charge dropped due to his great work and his relationship with the officer. I don't think anyone esle can do a better job than Ellis in handling my case. He is a very knowledgable and experienced lawyer and also a thoughtful and honest gentleman. I feel very comfortable to communicate and work with him. He made a detailed analysis on my case and proposed several strategies which turned out working very well for my case. I am so luck to know Ellis when I need legal help and having him to handle my case is the best decision I have ever made. Ellis is always there for his clients and always responses to questions very quickly. He likes to take challenges and fights for every chance that can lead to the best result for his clients. With my experience, I strongly recommend Ellis to anyone who needs legal assistance - he is the best lawyer in this business.


The Absolute Best
Let me save you a lot of reading. I have read most of the reviews below this one. Every one of them is a strong recommendation of Ellis Klein, and for good reason - he is the absolute best. Ellis helped us with the arrest of a family member on drug charges. The charges carried severe penalties. Ellis helped our family member to gain admission into drug court, where upon successful (fingers crossed) completion, charges will be reduced to misdemeanors. Throughout the very long process of getting to this outcome, Ellis was just fantastic. In addition to providing wonderful legal representation, he was compassionate and understanding of the family dynamics involved. Some of you may have had the experience of finding that perfect doctor when a family member is critically ill. Ellis Klein is that perfect lawyer. Your search is over.


Best DUI Lawyer
There is only one word that could describe Ellis Klein "THE BEST". Because of him I am on house arrest right now for only 30 days instead of doing 1 year in jail. I got my 2nd Dui in Bensalem earlier this year, I went and spoke with him about my situation and from day one he was honest with me and told me what was going to happen when we went to court. He came up with a plan for me that would give me the best chance in front of a judge. He was constantly in touch with me to make sure I was following the plan. When we went to court, I got a judge that does not give house arrest and was looking at jail time because Ellis knew the judge. Because of his experience and his quick thinking he went to the DA that he has an excellent relationship and made a deal to get me only 30 days house arrest. When the judge called my name she was furious and did not want to approve the plea. But because she knew Ellis Klein and did not want to go against the DA she had to approve it. I am so glad that I hired him, because all the other people that were in court with me got jail time. My family and I are so grateful to him, and would definitely recommend him. He is very experienced and has an excellent relationship with the Bucks county DA and judges.


Thank you Ellis...you gave me hope when I thought it was hopeless.
The smartest step I took was finding Ellis to handle my sons case for speeding..he took all control and filed all the paperwork with the courts with only days till or deadline..my son was facing a 3month suspension of his license plus 4 or more points ..long story short the suspension was put on hold as Ellis filed appeals in Doylestown and Harrisburg..Ellis called and keep me updated and next thing you know we recevied a letter saying that my sons license WON'T BE SUSPENDED ..and a few weeks later received another letter saying all point were being deleted too...wow there was hope..and all from only 1 office visit to Ellis..so if you think there is NO hope..call Ellis..he's a super nice guy and a great lawyer..thank you again Ellis for all you have done for my son and myself ..

Ellis B. Klein's response: "It was truly my pleasure assisting you and I am glad things worked out so well. Best of luck in the future. - EBK"


Top Notch Lawyer
I have known Ellis for over 20 years as we attended the same college. He has all the characteristics you would want in a lawyer and will work extremely hard to get to you the best result possible. I know this first hand as I am a lawyer in the Philadelphia area and I have and will continue to refer my clients to Ellis for his expertise.


Ellis Klein is THE BEST EVER! A blessing from God!
Ellis B. Klein is the very best attorney ever! He has been a true blessing from God!

I received paperwork in the mail regarding a bad check. It was a bogus claim with extenuating circumstances yet it needed to be defended. I received several letters from different attorneys wanting to defend me; however, I chose Ellis because his letter explained the law concerning this situation. I felt very comfortable right away because I felt if he had enough foresight to explain things in his letter, he would certainly do so in person. I WAS NOT WRONG!

We called his office and made an appointment. My husband and I were incredibly comfortable from the very beginning. Ellis was very thorough. He asked many questions and listened to our answers. He gathered as much information as possible from us. We came with all of the paperwork that we had and he started working on the case right away. I felt so peaceful and knew I was in very capable hands. He had to go to court on my behalf on two different days, the last of which I was out of town. He represented me beautifully! In the end the case was dismissed. He even followed up with the people on the other side and presented how he would proceed should they try to file the case again.

Not only is Ellis amazing, his staff is incredibly nice as well. No matter when I called the office and no matter who I talked to everyone was helpful and kind. They kept their word and made sure they communicated everything to me. It was a great experience in the midst of a very bad situation.

I pray I never have any other criminal cases that I need defending; however, if God forbid I do, I am calling Ellis Klein. I pray that God blesses him and his staff in a mighty way!


Thanks Ellis for a great result.
Ellis helped with my daughter who did something stupid and got in a jam. Ellis was great. He knew the law and even better he was well aquainted with the judge and was able to speak personally with her and work out a great result. He was also able to speak with the officer involved and convince the officer to give my daughter a chance to make ammends without a permanent record. Thanks Ellis, my daughter and my whole family are very happy with the result.

Ellis B. Klein's response: "Bob, it was truly my pleasure representing your daughter and I am glad that things worked out to your satisfaction. Best of luck to your daughter in the future - EK"


...helped me to retain my drivers license...
Mr. Ellis helped me to retain my drivers license when I was issued several traffic citations by a very unprofessional PA State police officer. Mr. Ellis was knowledgeable of the situation, and worked professionally and effectively to have the tickets reduced and/or dismissed.

Ellis B. Klein's response: "I am glad things worked out and we were able to save your license. It was a pleasure representing you and I wish you the best of luck in the future. - EK"


Very Understanding, Great Listener, Smart Lawyer
A true blessing, that I hired Ellis Klein as my lawyer. Ellis Klein treated me and my husband with respect. Mr. Klein was very understanding and listened to everything I said. I was not sure I should hire a lawyer or not. but I am so very happy I did. I was so scared, so nervous and did not know anything about traffic laws. Mr. Klein was very caring about my well being and my case. Mr. Klein explained everything so clearly and told me how the system works. He is so knowledgeable about the law, very smart man. He calmed my nerves so much, and I am very grateful. He came to court and told me everything that was going on & what will happen. He spoke with the officer and was able to speak in my half to get a deal for no points and a small fine. Which saved me financially and saved my reputation in the community. Again, I am extremely grateful and appreciative of his professionalism with my case. I highly recommend Ellis Klein.


An honest, and trustworthy attorney who saved my life!
I am a 24 year old college student who was arrested back in April 2013 for felony possession w/ intent to deliver, and criminal use of a communications facility in a school zone. Since it was a school zone, Mr. Klein informed me there is a mandatory minimum of a 2 year state prison sentence involved and there was a strong possibility of being sent to Graterford Prison. The first thing I noticed about Mr. Klein is his upfront honestly and knowledge about the criminal justice system and how he showed a genuine sense of concern for my well being. He made sure I knew the worst case scenario but also told me what I had to do in order to make the best out of this horrible situation. Since Ellis was a former DA himself, he has a lot of connections in their office, and also has a friendly relationship with the police department involved. Mr. Klein being the professional he is, returned every phone call I made to his office, and email I sent to him to make sure I felt comfortable and had my questions answered. After putting countless hours inside and outside of the courtroom, and diligently fighting to negotiate with the DA's office he was able to get me into a 30 day wilderness placement program which in turn dropped my felonies down to misdemeanors. I was told by police, and other attorneys that this was not even a possibility and I would be stuck with the felony for life, but thankfully that was not the case and I was granted a second chance. If you find yourself in any legal situation no matter how severe; I would full heartedly recommend Mr. Klein to the absolute fullest. He is a great person, and an even better attorney who actually cares about you! His rate is extremely fair and he worked with me with a realistic payment plan which was so helpful. Don't be a fool and choose anyone else! I owe him my life and I will be forever grateful.

Ellis B. Klein's response: "It was truly my pleasure representing you in this matter and I am so glad that things worked out so well for you. I wish you the best in the future. -EK"


I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of my case...
I am 27 yrs old and currently residing in queens, ny... I had an incident at the parx casino... It made the news, so I'm assuming it was a high profile case... You can read the article if you google my name, radik pinkhasov... I was arrested in bucks county and charged with 3 counts of felonies... Receiving stolen property, robbery, theft, and disorderly conduct... Given I have prior arrests and my record isn't squeaky clean, I was facing a prison sentence between 7-25 yrs... I was being held at the bucks county correctional facility... Ellis Klein came to my aid at the request of my father and explained to me that the charges were bogus and that we should fight the allegations... I have had bad experiences with lawyers and their empty promises in the past so I was a bit skeptical... He told me that he would go over the top to try and help me fight my case... Sure enough he was right on the money... Thanks to Ellis Klein I received a mere 2 yr probation... Beats prison time any day... I probably shouldn't say this, but it seems he has very close connections to the district attorneys... Very important... He also seemed to be very buddy buddy with the judge... Also very important... He is very knowledgable of the law and highly experienced in the field... I can honestly say that this is the best representation that I have ever received... I definitely recommended Ellis Klein... If you are facing a harsh sentence and an extended period of time behind bars, HIRE him right away... You'll be glad you did... I know I was...


Best possible outcome for a second offense.
I was arrested for a DUI, which was my second in 10 years, so it was tried as a second offense. I had a very bad experience with the lawyer from my first case (he was a very well know and expensive criminal attorney who clearly was doing DUI cases to make money without any effort and didn't even seem to know the law and what happened at court/immediately after the hearing). So, I was very careful in selecting my lawyer for this case, and I am very happy that I went with Ellis. He immediately instructed me to get to an AA meeting within the next week before we were able to meet in person. At our in person meeting, Ellis listened carefully to my situation and laid out the possible options, from best to worst case scenerios, and what he thought was the most likely outcome. He also made it clear that it really came down to the sentencing judge and that his understanding of the different judges and working relationship with them would guarantee me the best possible outcome. He also provided me with the best advice I could have received, which was to get treatment, treatment, treatment. So I did - I completed all of the court mandated treatment before the trial and went to an AA meeting 5-7 days/week. Essentially, I did everything I could have to present the best possible case. Ellis also made sure I had character letters and family, friends, and my AA Sponsor in Court as he found this to influence some judges. Based on Ellis's advice on what I should speak to and his presentation, I ended up with the best possible outcome the law allows, exactly as he predicted. I found Ellis to be open, honest, responsive, personable, and a great attorney. I would highly recommend Ellis to anyone, whether it be a first, second, or more DUI case. Thanks Ellis.


Great traffic ticket lawyer.
I had a 35+ MPH traffic ticket which would result in 5 points and the loss of my license Ellis Klein got the ticket reduced to 10 MPH over the speed limit and I only received 2 points. He did a great job and I am extremely grateful for his services.


Saved My Career
I was facing a minimum sentence of 6 months for a fraud charge. Mr. Klein was able to get it reduced to 2.5 years probation & community service. 6 months in jail would have cost me a $100K+ job and great financial hardship. I would HIGHLY recommend him!


Best Possible Outcome
Ellis provided timely , reliable, and experienced support throughout a very difficult time for our son and the family. He and his staff were there when we needed them the most. Would recommend him highly for criminal defense of substance abuse issues (as well as other civil/criminal matters) as he knows his way around the courts and legal systems in our county. My son received the best possible outcome available from two very serious charges, yet his sentence was fair for both him and the county. He will pay his dues, but has an excellent opportunity to come out the other end a changed and valued member of society.


Professional, Diligent, & Established
I hired Ellis after I was stopped for a DUI off of 95 in Bucks County. Over the course of the next few days, I must have gotten hundreds of advertisements in the mail. After calling around and getting a feel for lawyers, I felt the most comfortable with Ellis. When I met with Ellis, I had explained that I had a prior drug related conviction and he informed me that I would be ineligible for the ARD program. After hearing this news, my options were very slim in avoiding Jail Time. He gave me some suggestions and mentioned that if I were to pro-actively become an inpatient for my alcohol abuse, that the judge may be lenient in my sentencing. Going to rehab was probably the best decision I made and it paid off greatly. I did not have to go to jail, and now all I've got are some fines and a non reporting probation. Ellis was confident in every step of my case and also worked with me in his lawyer fees. I strongly suggest Ellis Klein for your DUI case!


Ellis is the best bet!
I have had experience with other attorneys. My experience with Ellis was amazing! He exceeded all my expectations. He worked hard on my case and was always available whenever I needed a question answered. I am very happy with his representation and I highly recommend him.


The B Stands for Brilliant
Ellis is a true Professional who does whatever it takes to get you the best possible outcome of your case. After enrolling in the ARD program for a DUI, and doing everything Ellis advised me to do, my record was expunged. He and his staff was always available to take my calls or return them as soon as possible. Ellis is so well like by the Judges, Attorneys, Law Enforcement, and Court Clerks, you feel as though you have an advantage in winning your case. I did the research and thought he was the best Lawyer for me and thank God i was right. If you need a good man and a great Lawyer, call Ellis B Klein.


Follows Through
Mr Klein helped us with a somewhat extended DUI case and was very helpful even after the court date and gave us the best outcome we could hope for.


Your #1 Pick
Ellis Klein was the best representation I could ask for.

I received a first offense DUI in addition to going 85 mph in a 55 mph zone. With his experience and connections Ellis was able to get the speeding charge dropped, as well as a careless driving charge, and disregarding traffic lane. The kicker came when it was time for my preliminary hearing. I am not proud to say that I woke up unintentionally late for my hearing, in fact 15 minutes after I was scheduled to be there. I freaked out and called Ellis, he handled the situation and no harm was done. This doesn't mean you should skip out on your hearing, DO NOT MISS YOUR PRELIMINARY HEARING. Also, if he doesn't get back to you RIGHT AWAY do NOT be alarmed. He's a very busy man and has many clients, because he's the best.

All in all I am HIGHLY satisfied with Mr. Klein's work and would happily seek his council if needed in the future.


A thorough, professional experience (as a fellow lawyer can attest).
Ellis Klein is diligent, capable, responsive, prompt, and effective. Though I'm a former prosecutor and could have represented myself, when I got a speeding ticket in Bucks County that threatened to put points onto my record I knew I needed to get a traffic lawyer who specialized in that particular court. I followed the Avvo ratings and was not disappointed. Mr. Klein and his associates discussed scheduling and the range of likely outcomes and were clear and up front about the fee to be expected. When it was necessary to reschedule the original hearing date, they gave plenty of advance notice and made it clear that I didn't have to show up. And because of his extensive experience and knowledge of the police officers who appear in that court, he was able to get my ticket knocked down to a lower one, avoiding all points and bringing a partial refund of the original fine amount. I couldn't have been happier and would gladly recommend his traffic and criminal-defense services to anyone.


Wonderful Attorney
Mr. Klein provided me with a legal experience that was respectful, informative, responsive and straightforward. At all times, I felt that my legal rights were protected. His office was very courteous and helpful as well. He helped me out of a bad situation, made worse by previous poor legal advice. I recommend Mr. Klein to anyone who needs a good, competent lawyer!


Ellis Klein went above and beyond for me!
Ellis Klein went above and beyond for me! He handled my case with speed and efficiency. Ellis steered my me the legal system with ease and did not charge me for State clerical issues.


...extremely an incredible lawyer...
By far one of the best lawyer since The day me and my husband walked in his office he was nothing but a very wonderful person extremely straight forward and honest He took on our case at short notice with no hesitation My husband guide lines were look at five years being though he had two priors but he brought it down to Eleven months with work Release it could of ended worse he is an awesome lawyer and I would recommend Ellis to anyone I'm beyond thankful I had such a wonderful person like him.


Your'e in great hands.
Coming to Mr. Klein facing 5 felonies and 5 misdemeanors, my tale was between my legs. I hadn't a clue as to the potential outcome of these charges. Not once did Mr. Klein give me false hope. He never once patted my back and told me that 'it will all be ok'. However, he did tell me that he would do anything and everything in his power to secure my freedom. He remained true to his word. Mr. Klein gave my family and I courage. Gave us hope. Gave us strength. Mr. Klein is true gentleman and one hell of an attorney.

Mr. Klein, if you happen to read this - thank you. Sincerely, thank you.

Ellis B. Klein's response: "I am so glad that we were able to get all of the felonies and most of the misdemeanors dropped - you deserved it. I wish you the best of luck in the future and it was my pleasure representing you. - EK"


Simply put, excellent job.
Simply put, excellent job. Able to coach a client for the long term and assist the client to best represent what they have done in making "life changes" to prevent further instances and to acknowledge in front of the judge their personal mistakes. Very good in assisting the client to be their own advocate and not a victim of other's actions.


Recommend Ellis 100%
After getting a DUI in Bucks County, I called Ellis the following day. The first lawyer I tried calling practically dismissed my phone call, but Ellis took the time to explain to me what was going on, and how the process works. He did this in an honest manner, keeping me optimistic, but still realistic.

Along the way he patiently guided me through the courts and the ARD process. He was very responsive to my emails and phone calls, as I had many questions about what was going on. I may have been a bit overzealous, but I never sensed any frustration from him.

I initially got denied ARD, but luckily I had Ellis on my side. He assisted me in putting reconsideration materials, and he aggressively pursued reconsideration, and ultimately we were successful. In the days leading up to the reconsideration decision and the ARD court date, his correspondence was second to none, even informing me of my success well into the evening on a weeknight.

Because of Ellis, I avoided jail time, a criminal record, and more. I am extremely grateful. Thanks Ellis.

Ellis B. Klein's response: "Mike, Thank you so much for your kind words. I am thrilled that we were able to get the DA to reconsider his decision to deny you ARD. I truly believe that you deserved to get into the ARD program rather than go to jail for your offense. It was my pleasure representing you and I wish you the best of luck. - Ellis"


Excellent Attorney
I had retained Ellis Klein after having met a couple of attorneys practicing DUI related offences. He was undoubtedly the most knowledgeable among them. He instills confidence in his clients and works very hard for them.
He heard me out patiently and explained me the whole process. Communicating with him was never any problem since he always answered my calls and emails. I was always kept informed about everything that was going on at every step of the way.
Initially my ARD petition was denied but Ellis requested a review and convinced the concerned ADA to reverse the decision. With Ellis Klein you can be confident that you are in good hands.

Ellis B. Klein's response: "I am so glad that we were successful in convincing the DA to change his mind and give you ARD. It was the right result and you deserved the break. Best of luck in the future - EK"


Excellent Legal Counsel
Having made a few horrible decisions, I found myself in need of legal support. As a result of drinking and driving(2 arrests/10 years apart), my career and livelihood were in jeopardy. I interviewed 3 different attorneys and each had a different "vibe" and approach to my situation. Ellis was, hands-down, the best attorney for my case. He was interested in listening to my needs and providing me the best approach to achieving the appropriate result. He was honest with me as we made every effort to provide the DA with a reason to work with me and the charges. Ellis continued to remind me that the chances were slim, but he supported me in the effort. Sure enough, the DA was not willing to work with me, but the efforts were excellent reflection points. At trial, the material gathered was enough to get some flexibility from the Judge. The mandatory minimum sentence is absolutely adhered to, but the flexibility allowed me to move some things in my life around. Ellis's efforts borrowed me the necessary time and the flexibility gained from the courts may very well have saved my career. The reflection process leading up to the trial, guided by Mr. Klein will always be a valuable life lesson that I will look back on with great appreciation. I am not proud that I made the mistakes that I have made, however, I am grateful of the opportunities that remain available in the future. I can attest that Mr. Klein helped tremendously during what was one of the most painful and terrifying experiences in my life. Thank you very Much, Ellis.

Tip: He is not a cliche' attorney. He shows compassion and E-mail responses are unbelievably prompt!


Job Well Done!
Back in April I earned myself a speeding ticket worth $199.50 and 4 points. I decided to take it to court-my main concern was the points. I googled attorney's and called a few, most wanted outrageous amounts of money. Ellis Klein was the last number I called. He was personable, reasonably priced, and told me that he thought he would have no problem getting rid of the points. We met at court and not only did he rid me of points, he got the case thrown out completely. The hefty fine I paid was refunded to me. I could not have asked for a better outcome. I hope I do not need any future legal services, but if I do I have his card handy.


ARD Denial Turnaround
I was charged with a tier 2 DUI in Pennsylvania (I live in NJ) and was denied ARD. This was my first experience with being charged with anything and arrested, so as you can imagine, I was quite unnerved about the entire experience. From the onset of retaining Mr. Klein as my attorney, he kept me well-informed through the entire process. This was a major factor in gaining my trust and boosted my confidence in retaining him as my lawyer. Additionally, he suggested I attend AA meetings and obtain letters of character reference. Because of his suggestions along with his knowledge and experience of the law, I was granted ARD and I did NOT lose my NJ license. Furthermore, his assistant Lindsey complements his practice well. She kept me in "the loop" and expeditiously answered any questions I may have had regarding my case. I highly recommend Ellis Klein to anyone who has been charged with a DUI--he is professional, personable and knowledgeable of Pennsylvania and New Jersey laws, but most of all his years of experience in the field make him the first choice for a DUI attorney. If you want to have a positive outcome with the best results, I suggest retaining Ellis Klein as your DUI lawyer.

Ellis B. Klein's response: "Thanks for the kind words. I am so glad that we were able to get the DA to reconsider their decision to deny you ARD. You deserved the break and it was my pleasure representing you. Best of luck in the future - EK"


5 points + PENNDOT hearing reduced to zero points!!!
Ellis reduced my citation (75mph in a 40mph zone) from five points and a departmental hearing, plus possible license suspension to a zero points, non-moving violation!! He guaranteed a reduction in points or my money back! I couldn't be happier with the outcome!


Great Lawyer
I received a DUI with 3rd tier punishments. Mr. Klein wrote me a plan of what to do to get ready for court and get me ready for ARD. I was denied at first, but Mr. Klein kept pushing and got the courts to reconsider and accept me into the program. He saved my record and I'm very thankful. I would highly suggest him he's honest,fair, and overall great lawyer.


The Absolute Best
Let me save you a lot of reading. I have read most of the reviews below this one. Every one of them is a strong recommendation of Ellis Klein, and for good reason - he is the absolute best. Ellis helped us with the arrest of a family member on drug charges. The charges carried severe penalties. Ellis helped our family member to gain admission into drug court, where upon successful (fingers crossed) completion, charges will be reduced to misdemeanors. Throughout the very long process of getting to this outcome, Ellis was just fantastic. In addition to providing wonderful legal representation, he was compassionate and understanding of the family dynamics involved. Some of you may have had the experience of finding that perfect doctor when a family member is critically ill. Ellis Klein is that perfect lawyer. Your search is over.


An attorney who truly cares about his clients.
I received a letter from Mr. Klein's office after I was released on bail following an arrest for a robbery charge. It was my first offense, yet it was a very serious crime that carried up to 10 years in prison. Prior to contacting Ellis, I applied for a public defender because my family and I did not have the money to hire a personal attorney. The public defender I spoke to seemed very careless and told me I was most likely facing a maximum of 5 years in state prison and that my best case scenario would be 6 months to 2 years county time. I then decided to open the letter I received from Mr. Klein's office. After just one meeting with Ellis I knew that it was in my best interest to have this man represent me. He was very reasonable and understanding, and quite knowledgeable in criminal defense. He made no promises, but assured me that he would do everything in his power to help me through this difficult time in my life. And he sure did deliver.

Not only did he have great suggestions to help me as a person, he also briefed me on what I could do to help my own case. We worked out a payment plan that he was very flexible and understanding with and to this day it was the best money I've ever spent in my life. He contacted me regularly to update me on changes, dates, case facts, etc. His staff was also very kind and courteous and always made me comfortable whenever I had to be at his office. And anytime I had questions or concerns, he was always available to answer whatever he could. Ellis was also hands on and personally involved in every aspect of my case. He did not delegate the work to another attorney like some other places do. Mr. Klein's expertise and experience was enormously crucial to my case and I would hate to think how things would have turned out if I had not opened his letter.

When it was all said and done, I was given 1 year of probation. Quite a difference from the 6-24 months in prison the public defender had me hoping for. Ellis also ensured that my felony charges were dropped to less serious misdemeanors which will no doubt help me in my future. No words can express how grateful I am for Mr. Klein and all the hard work he put in to help me through such a difficult time in my life. A kind, respectful, and sympathetic man with a vast knowledge of the law. If you are truly concerned with your rights and freedom then you will not make the mistake of gambling with other attorneys and choose Ellis B. Klein to defend you.

Ellis Klein is a terrific attorney who represented my son in a DUI case. Ellis was understanding and sympathetic yet very forthright regarding the seriousness of the issue. He was extremely knowledgeable of the process and kept us informed at every step. He had a very professional presence, was confident (but not arrogant) and kept us calm throughout a very traumatic situation. He was a critical factor in my son receiving the best possible outcome from this DUI event. John Doe

Recently Mr. Klein helped me out with a criminal charge in which the outcome was the best possible situation for me. Ellis worked with me as far as a payment plan, knew the judge and officer and I couldn't ask for anything more out of a lawyer. I'm very happy with his performance and would recommend him to anyone.

Ellis literally gave me a new lease on life. I was facing a DUI, which would have affected my livelihood, my freedom and would have left me with a criminal record. Mr. Klein was able to have all the evidence suppressed by challenging the officer's cause for pulling me over. He was very thorough, leaving no stone unturned. His demeanor in court was confident and knowledgeable. He saved my reputation and my family from facing serious economic hardship. Thank You Anonymous

Like many young adults, I made a bad decision that resulted in very serious consequences. I was afraid and nervous. Ellis was very straight-forward when he explained things to me, telling what the best outcome could be as well as the worst. Through his knowledge, professionalism, and legal reputation, my case was resolved with the best possible outcome. I advise my friends not to make the same mistake that I did, but if they do I will highly recommend Ellis. I feel like I have been given a second chance. Anonymous
