Why You Need An Attorney On Your Side Now

Our experience tells us that the sooner we become involved with your defense, even before indictment or formal charges, the better we'll be able to expand your options toward a favorable outcome. While it is essential to contact an attorney immediately after an arrest, we especially value the opportunity to improve your position when you first become aware that you are under investigation.

We handle the full range of state and federal criminal defense cases, including:

  • Violent crimes such as homicide, manslaughter or assault
  • Weapons offenses and gun charges
  • Domestic violence
  • Diversion of medications or narcotics
  • Sex crimes ranging from rape to child pornography
  • State and federal drug crimes ranging from possession of marijuana to federal conspiracy or kingpin charges
  • Corporate and white collar crimes, fraud and money laundering
  • Public corruption charges from bribery to campaign finance violations
  • Internet fraud and sex crimes
  • Pennsylvania DUI defense
  • Juvenile crimes and status offenses
  • College student misdemeanors and felonies, including underage drinking
  • State and federal criminal appeals

All of our lawyers have served on disciplinary committees and/or hearing panels with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. This experience allows us to render outstanding client service across the range of professional disciplinary defense problems for teachers, doctors, lawyers, nurses, dentists, real estate professionals and members of other licensed occupations.
