I can provide you with the defense representation that you need in any of the following areas:

Drug Crimes
Possession, distribution, and cultivation of illegal or controlled substances can result in serious criminal charges. It is important to recognize that, depending on the specific offense and the type of substance involved in your case, you could face long-lasting penalties for conviction.

Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
The legal blood alcohol content (BAC) limit in Pennsylvania is 0.08%, and it is vital that you have representation on your side if you are charged with DUI. You could face years in jail and license suspension among other penalties if convicted.

Juvenile Crimes
When an individual under the age of 18 is arrested and charged with a crime, they could face serious penalties although they may generally be charged in a juvenile court. There are some cases in which a juvenile could be charged as an adult depending on the severity of the crime.

Probation Violations
If you are convicted of a crime, then you may be granted a probation sentence in lieu of some jail time. Along with this sentence, you will be given terms to comply with during this probationary period. A violation of these terms will result in probation violation charges and serious penalties could ensue.

Traffic Violations
If you are given a ticket, then it is crucial to know that you can fight the ticket. Consider a ticket the same as a criminal charge; you have the option to plead guilty by paying the ticket or to fight the charges with legal assistance.

Violent Crimes
Actions such as assault, battery, robbery, and other offenses are considered violent crimes. The penalties for conviction of a violent crime are often severe and lasting. Let me work with you if you have been charged with a violent crime.
