Protecting Your Future

The experience we have had with Alyssa Shorstein has been excellent!!! Everyone has shown support and quick answers when we have needed. Mrs. Shorstein is very professional and very good lawyer that shows experience and humanity. We highly recommend her.

Thank you so much to all the team!!!


Alyssa has an amazing work ethic, which combines with her intelligence and wisdom to guarantee her clients, practical and tenacious service. She has done work for me multiple times and has yet to steer me wrong. I trust her outlook on a case and admire her ability to fight for her client even when the case appears to be unwinnable. This is probably based on the fact that she puts her heart into her cases and her calling to this field shows through her actions. I highly recommend this attorney for anyone looking for no nonsense consultations and passionate, professional assistance. Thank you Alyssa!


My first day meeting with Atty Sung Lee. I felt his sincerity and honesty about my case. That day I hired him... and that was the best decision I made. From the beginning to the end HE and his staff was there for me. Step by step and guide me, thru all the way of my divorce. Sung is my HERO. He did all his best to get what I deserved. but most of all have a good heart. He is honest, professional and very down to earth person. Very smart guy! Saying thank you is not enough but from the bottom of my heart you are the BEST AWESOME LAWYER in the world. Thank you in a million times.. Atty Sung LEE!!!

Murder Case

Client J.M. was indicted for First Degree Felony Murder with a firearm and facing a possible death sentence, however after doing depositions in the case and working diligently on it for months, the case was ultimately dismissed. Later, the Sheriffs Office arrested and convicted the actual murderer in the case. We are happy to say that J.M. was recently married and is a hard working husband and father.

Sexual Battery/Rape Cases

Client J.L. was charged with two counts of Unlawful Sex Acts with a Minor. Charges were dropped after depositions were taken and the victim admitted she was not being truthful.

More recently, Client J.V. was questioned by a local detective about having sex with someone forcefully and against the person's will. After weeks of negotiating and working with the detective investigating the case, we were able to convince the investigating officer not to file any charges against J.V. A closer examination of the facts showed that this was in fact a consensual encounter.

Drug Sale Cases

Client M.W. was charged with Sale of Cocaine within 1,000 feet of a School. Once discovery was obtained on the case, it was clear in the video that although M.W. looked like the person in the video making the sale, he was mistakenly identified and arrested. After jury selection, the case was dismissed by the State Attorney's Office.

Client A.S. was charged with Trafficking in Controlled Substances. The charge carried with it a 25 year minimum mandatory prison sentence. After a few months on the case, A.S. pled to a lesser charge and received a probationary term. A.S. has successfully completed his probation.

Client B.P. was charged with Possession of Cocaine. After showing the prosecutor the relevant case law that applied to the case, all charges were dropped.
