Summary

25 office locations throughout Pennsylvania. Call for nearest office location.

I am a former Senior Deputy District Attorney with personal experience in over 10,000 Criminal cases, ranging from minor traffic offenses to homicide. Over the past 25+ years of practice I have worked with thousands of police officers and have appeared in court on countless occasions. We know the system and all of the tricks the police use to gain an advantage. Few attorneys possess my firm’s background and extensive experience in this area of the law.

EXCLUSIVE PRACTICE - My practice is limited to Criminal, DUI and Traffic defense cases. I am not a general practitioner who handles many different types of law. Criminal law has been my only practice area since I became a lawyer over 20 years ago.

CUSTOMER SERVICE - I treat clients the way I would want to be treated if I was experiencing legal problems – with honesty, kindness and respect. I do not tell clients what they want to hear just to get a case. I do not scare clients into retaining me. I will never say to a client “Don’t worry about it.” What I do is tell clients the truth, right over the phone. I call clients back, even at night or on weekends. Additionally, my staff is well-informed and very helpful if I am not in the office when you call.

FREE IN-DEPTH CONSULTATIONS - I gladly talk to new clients over the phone, for as long as you wish. I will answer every question that you have over the phone, or even in person if you prefer, for free. I will gladly explain all of your options, give you my honest opinion about what could happen to you and I even quote a fee and a flexible payment plan, right over the phone. I believe that an informed client is the best client. Again, if I was having legal problems, that is the way that I would want to be treated.

Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. Can you be charged with a DUI if you're stopped by police and it's discovered you were smoking pot,
A: No, DUI covers alcohol and/or drugs. PA is a zero tolerance state which means that if any amount is found in your blood, no matter when you smoked, it will be considered a DUI. If convicted, you are looking at a mandatory minimum 3 day jail sentence plus a one year license suspension. You should start speaking with experienced criminal defense attorneys as you will likely need one, once your papers are sent to you in the mail. Most attorneys, including myself give free consultations. You may have a defense, or you may be eligible for a first time offender program if you have no prior record. Good luck
Q. My roommate was using my car and got a speeding ticket, which was mailed to him with my name on it. Who do I talk to to
A: You would need to plead not guilty with the court and then you would get a trial date. If you were not the driver and you name is listed on the citation, that is a potential fatal error on the ticket and the judge can throw it out. You should got to court with a lawyer as your chances of this working out are better than if you represent yourself. If you would like a free consultation, please call me or another lawyer of your choosing. Best of luck
