Client Testimonials:

NOT GUILTY!!! Those are the words that Robert P. Link ultimately received for his client my godson, last Friday in the Philadelphia court system, after a very long incarceration and battle to prove his innocence. Hands down he is " the man " to represent you with knowledge, superior expertise and true commitment. He conducts private investigations, interviews witness, victim, police etc. His commitment to you as a human being is very evident, as is his mission and tenaciousness to leave no stone unturned! ROBERT P. LINK is a rarity in today's law and a force to be reckoned with!
Upon being incarcerated I didn't know what to do or who to call. What I knew was time was valuable and I needed good representation. While some may opt for a public defender as I did at first, I quickly realized I needed someone more personal and easily accessible in my grave situation. Not a person I had to keep explaining my case to or would only see me when they wanted in my time of need. Little did I know my prayers would he answered. I was referred to Pat Link by a friend and from the first day of meeting him I knew I wouldn't searching for another lawyer. Pat's knowledge, professionalism, and determination beckoned a precedence of reassurance which is exactly what I needed facing a prison sentence no less then 5 yrs. As my lawyer he reassured my family and friends that I was gonna be fine in the absence of my presence by answering every question and every call. More then a lawyer Pat is a friend who was there when some weren't. It feels good to be free... - Thanx Pat
I first met Robert Link Through a friend of mine, and I was amazed at not only his work ethic but also his results. I found myself needing a lawyer and he was the first person I thought of. I didn't have a lot, but he was willing to work with me. The amount of passion and dedication I received from Pat made me feel more like family than a client. Inside the court room Pat became a different person, the way he recites case law, the method in which he cross examines, made me wonder if this was the same guy laughing with me a few minutes prior to the trial. After my case was thrown out, they scheduled my trial a whole month later to get that on record, but once again Pat managed to work his magic and get me in the court room much sooner. I highly recommend this guy to any and everyone in need of legal advice, or representation. At the end of my trial I came out with not only my freedom, but also a new friend which you may call Robert, Rob, Pat or Patrick, but just make sure you pick up the phone and do call him!!
Great Lawyer
He kept me informed every step of the way. Other lawyers don't do that there all about the money and don't let you know what's going on but not Mr.Link he kept me informed every step of the way and worked out payment arrangements with me. I really trust him and would recommend him to anyone.
Excellent Attorney
The best defense attorney you will ever find When i was pulled over in Philadelphia i had previous negative experiences with police officers therefore i decided to video tape the traffic stop on my cell phone to protect my rights and have evidence if needed. After being arrested, I felt as if I was taken advantage of and knew I had to hire legal help for my situation. Considering all of the negative repercussions of being convicted such as losing my license and my jobs, I began to research online different defense attorneys in philladelphia. Then I stumbled upon Mr. Links website simply by chance. I was immediately impressed by all the succesful case results and such that I decided to give him a try and scheduled a free consultation with him. He saw me within the next few days and right away I knew I made a new friend and hired him on the spot. He treated me like a member of his own family and even worked with me on the price because he was more interested in helping me win my case then taking my money which is a rarety among lawyers today. He insisted that he had my back and that we were going to come out on top but I always had a little bit of hesitation because all of the lawyers I had previously hired in different situations were mediocre at best and ended up barely helping my case at all. As my trial date approached he was there to answer all of my questions at a moments notice in a confident manner. Then on the day of my trial, I sat in the courtroom and watched the few cases before mine. All of the defense attorneys seemed to be inexperienced and were losing one after the other which began to shake my confidence. However the whole time Mr. Link was sitting right there with me telling me not to worry and that he had my back. Then when it was our turn, it was like he flipped a switch. He went from the cool care free friend that i had recently gotten to know into a case winning machine. It was surreal like a scene from a movie. Within 15 minutes he completely destroyed the prosecutions case and proved the arresting officers to be not credible. Therefore after making this clear to the whole court room and judge alike, the motion to supress was granted and the case was thrown out based upon this and also the fact that I was illegally searched and taken advantage of. This was the best feeling ever and as we walked out of the court room I knew the best decision I made was hiring Mr. Link, not to mention everyone else waiting to be tried had a look on their faces like they were thinking ,"wow I wish he was my lawyer". I only have one regret and that is that I wish I found Mr. Link YEARS AGO because im sure he would've saved me much stress, money and aggravation from my previous legal issues. If u are on this website now look no further because you have found the best defense attorney in Philadelphia hands down in my opinion.
