I have been practicing criminal defense in Central Pennsylvania almost exclusively for 30 years, having tried over 120 cases to verdict in State and Federal Court. I have taught trial advocacy as an adjunct professor at PSU Law School, and have handled all aspects of criminal practice, from initial investigations, case evaluations, summary hearings, preliminary hearings, pre-trial motions, trials, and appeals. I have extensive experience handling all grades of criminal offenses, from Summary Offenses to First Degree Felonies. I utilize the top experts and investigators in the field when necessary. My practice is limited to criminal defense ,and I believe in a personalized and direct approach to managing clients and their families. I maintain a very small case-load that allows for maximum attention to your matter. I charge non-refundable flat fees for all matters and my fees are disclosed in a written fee agreement that is communicated clearly in advance of me undertaking representation. Fees are established on a case by case basis, and are based on the nature and complexity issues involved and the time constraints presented. We communicate regularly with clients utilizing zoom, emails, and texts. In person office meetings are scheduled as appropriate. Please email us to schedule a consultation: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please understand that I am determined to get the best possible outcome for every client.
-Philip M. Masorti, Esq.
I met Phil at a most difficult time in my life. He immediately made me feel like I was safe, secure and in professional hands.
Hey sometimes in life things happen out of our control, knowing that there is a professional like Mr. Masorti who understands how to navigate the system, tell you the truth and straight facts makes it easy to deal with whatever life brings.
I honestly can thank him enough for ensuring everything came out ok, just as he said it would when I met him.
Philip Masorti is one the most brilliant attorneys I've ever known.
Very dedicated and respectful group of people. Helped me out when I needed it most!
What I can say about Phil, he is a life saver. From the very first time I meet with him I knew I was in good hands. His professionalism along with connections from working in the state college area for years have earned him a reputation of a defense attorney no prosecutor enjoys seeing on the other bench. I could not recommend him more. This man is responsive and will walk you through your situation with confidence along with reassuring you it will all be ok. I jokingly told him when my situation was resolved that I hope to never see him again, but god forbid I ever need an attorney again...Phillip Mosorti will be man I call.
Philip gave me a peace of mind from the moment I met him. He is an amazing professional who will do anything in his power to support you.
When facing a serious case which could have resulted in a felony record, out of talking to at least 10 lawyers, Mr. Masorti stood out the most. His intelligence, grace, and dedication will protect you all the time at any time. He will do work without ever giving you tension, with you not even realizing the work he is putting into the case. Out of multiple charges that would have made me a felon, Mr. Masorti was able to get everything downgraded to one single misdemeanor charge, that after one year of the ARD program (pre-trial invertion, probation) that only required a court check in online once a month, would get expunged. He stands out in my mind as THE most impressive lawyer I have ever met. You cannot go wrong and will never question your decision in choosing Mr. Masorti.
Masorti Law Group is a firm that I would recommend to anyone looking for legal advice. Philip is an extremely approachable, friendly, and professional lawyer who will look out for you like you're family. I got in trouble for a felony level crime while on ARD and Philip managed to get me an extended ARD sentence instead of jail/prison time. He is compassionate and extremely driven to help his clients, and will also keep you informed and updated every step of the way. I can not advocate enough for the legal services of Masorti Law Group.
Thanks Phil you mean the world to my family and I.
Phil is a wonderful attorney, a friend, and overall person. During my case, he made sure that I knew what was going on with every step. Whenever I felt uneasy, he always had a way of subsiding those feelings and reassuring me that everything was going to be okay. Phil always looked out for my best interest and made sure that all accommodations were met. Over the course of the case, we developed a very great relationship that stemmed outside of just business. I wish nothing but the best for Phil and that he continues his great work because he is a great human being. Whether he knows it or not, I learned a lot from just being in his presence and observing his meticulous methodology.
Philip helped me in my case and got the result I was hoping for. When I first got to his office he calmed me down and assured he would do his best to help me. Following court Philip also spoke on my behalf to allow me to participate in programming close to my heart.
Masorti was wonderful! I could tell he really cared about my case! Phillip was very prepared and helped me out so much, I couldn't have asked for a better attorney! Answered any and every question I had, you can't go wrong choosing him!
He helped me with my case, and during the process he was very responsible and patient. He can understand your stand points and provide the best support. You could hundred percent rely on him to perfectly solve your case.
In search of a defense attorney who knew his way around Centre Co legal system and who would provide a vigorous defense without taking the easy way out; recommendations led us to Mr. Philip Masorti, with whom we immediately felt comfortable, with his confident and reassuring manner. You cant imagine the shock & disbelief when a family member is charged with felonies for an action which caused no physical harm and was believed to be within ones legal right to 'stand your ground'. We were extremely grateful and relieved he was at least able to get the charges reduced to a more appropriate level befitting the legal description of the incident. We were further shocked when the county wouldn't agree to a minimal sentence for a first offense (when others who actually caused physical harm or even death have received little or no time.) But, through this whole gut-wrenching ordeal, Philip was there for us, especially me, at times more like a trusted friend than legal counsel. He was frank and honest about possible outcomes. Having heard so many complaints about lawyers who don't return calls, I was surprised and relieved to find he was never more than a phone call or text away, even if out of town. He made himself available for face-to-face meetings when I needed updates and reassurance. He has a compassionate heart and truly cares about the success of young men who have made a mistake. If you find yourself afoul of the law in Centre Co, Phil's your man.
One of the best lawyers in Central Pennsylvania. Highly recommend.
Mr. Masorti handled my son's case which was fairly publicized and extremely serious. He kept us in the loop every step of the way. He answered our questions with honesty; talked to the D.A.; gave great-sounding advice; handled the press and saw the case through to the end. Phil was able to get the best possible outcome we could have hoped for for my son who was facing quite a few years in state prison. Phil worked his "magic" and got the sentence down to months in the county jail. Phil was definitely reasonably priced and was well worth the money we paid. Phil's a straight shooter with compassion. Myself, my family and my son truly thank Phil for the job he did and for his professional assistance in a very sensitive case. I highly recommend his services! Thank you Phil!
Philip Masorti is a great human being and an excellent lawyer, I believe there's no better lawyer in Pennsylvania.
Phil stepped up and put his experience to work when I needed it. He was approachable and genuine in his concern over my situation. Phil turned a stressful scenario into a good outcome, and he did so quickly. I can't have picked someone better.
Phil is an excellent attorney highly recommend! Helped me immensely in my time of need. I know my outcome would not have been as good without his hard work at defending my son. I'm sure prosecutors are not happy when they see him. Extremely smart and thorough with his work.
Philip Masorti is the lawyer to get the job done. I was disillusioned with the legal system when I realized how it actually works. His skill, insight, understanding, and heart restored my confidence in a broken system. If you need legal help, I highly recommend him!
When I was in an impossible situation, Mr. Masorti helped me find a way out! Excellent Excellent Excellent! If you feel stuck with no way out, call this man!
