Michael has extensive experience as a result of his years of trial work
as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia. His exemplary record
in the District Attorney's Office resulted in promotions to the Municipal
Court, Juvenile Court, Felony Waiver, and Major Trial Units. As an Assistant
District Attorney he tried more than a thousand cases ranging from narcotics
charges (PWID) and
DUI to rape and attempted murder. During that time he gained invaluable knowledge
of how police officers, detectives, and prosecutors develop and build
their cases for trial. Today, Mr. Parkinson uses that knowledge to provide
his clients with the best
defense and achieve the best possible results at all stages of a case. Thanks
to his background and experience, Mr. Parkinson is comfortable in any
courtroom – whether fighting a preliminary hearing in district court,
or arguing an appeal in the Supreme Court.
