The following is a list of a few areas we have highlighted in order to provide you with an understanding of our approach to criminal defense:

Driving Under the Influence (DUI): DUI charges are much more than simple traffic violations-DUI charges are filed in a variety of ways and are often accompanied with traffic charges that can have a significant impact on you. A DUI conviction can result in serious consequences such as a license suspension, jail time, considerable fines and a permanent criminal record. Our strategy for every case is tailored to accomplish the best possible outcome for you which may include options such as diversionary programs to avoid jail time and/or license suspension.
Drug Offenses: Drug charges are very serious matters and carry a variety of penalties-including license suspension in some cases. It is essential to have a drug defense attorney who can defend your rights and thoroughly evaluate your charges to determine, for example, whether there is an appropriate challenge to a search warrant or seized evidence.
Traffic Offenses: Traffic offenses are all too often disregarded by some as minor proceedings which don’t require representation. Many traffic offenses in Pennsylvania, however, carry the possibility of a license suspension, the assessment of points or enhanced penalties and fines. It is critical to speak with our Attorneys to discuss the penalties that can affect your ability to drive and our role in obtaining a favorable result in your case.
Disorderly Conduct, Simple Assault, Aggravated Assault: Crimes of violence can be based on false accusations or exaggerated claims, embellishing what was actually a minor altercation or an act of self-defense. It is critical to speak to our Attorneys to evaluate the facts of each case and the defenses available to you with the ultimate goal of having charges against you dismissed or reduced.
