CRIMINAL DEFENSE

Philadelphia, PA

philadelphia criminal defense attorneySince our inception, the United States has been unique in its concern for fairness and justice in the legal process. Every single citizen and legal resident of the U.S. is guaranteed certain rights under the Constitution. Even those accused, charged, or convicted of a criminal offense still retain legal rights. In the event that these rights are violated at any point in the proceedings from the arrest to the trial, the outcome of a criminal case can be greatly impacted.

If you or someone you know has been charged with a crime, it is vital to consult with a trusted criminal defense attorney who has extensive experience protecting defendants’ rights.

(drunk driving), and summary offenses such as underage drinking. We have been successful in getting our clients into the first offender orARD programs in appropriate cases. We have filed and successfully litigated hundreds of motions for expungement.

We also have vast experience in preparing briefs and conducting oral argument in state and federal appeals on direct appeal from criminal convictions.
