"I'm the Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney Pittsburgh criminals hire when they commit crimes."

"I may have a law degree, but I think like a criminal. Street knowledge."

"Any criminal defense attorney who promises you a result is most likely a liar or a scumbag."

"I pick up the phone, I answer calls, I return letters, and I make jail visits. Because I'll probably be there, visiting my friends anyway."

KDKA reached out to Muessig about his commercial.

He says he made the commercial to connect with clients in an honest way that conveyed both humor and the realities of his profession.

Muessig also talked to NewsRadio 1020 KDKA's Bill Rehkopf about the commercial.

He says he's actually even leaving soon to go tour in Japan.

Muessig said, "I want Pittsburgh to know that I love my job, and that just because I have fun with it doesn't mean I don't take it deadly serious."
