I am a Philadelphia native and attended Widener University Law School.
During my time in law school I interned with:
- The Honorable Edward G. Rendell as a political intern
- The in-house counsel at Primavera Systems in Bala Cynwyd
- The Chester County District Attorney’s Office as a certified legal intern
I founded the Law Office of Michael E. Houghton P.C., after being admitted to practice in Pennsylvania in 2008.
Our practice provides legal services in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties in:
- Criminal Defense
- DUI & Traffic Law
- Debt Resolution and Appeals
- Family Law
Since 2008, I have defended a wide variety of clients with cases ranging from traffic offenses, drug trafficking and sex offenses in jurisdictions throughout southeastern Pennsylvania. Moreover, I have appealed convictions to the Pennsylvania Superior Court on behalf of clients.
