FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

Juvenile Offenses

Minors often think and act as if nothing bad can happen to them. Underage drinking, vandalism and shoplifting may sound like kid stuff, but these are serious crimes. Offenses like this can lead to fines and even incarceration, especially if a weapon or violence is involved. As your lawyer, our job is to help make sure a youthful indiscretion doesn’t ruin the rest of a young person’s life.

To start, we’ll do everything possible to ensure that a juvenile offense is heard in a Juvenile Court, and that your child is not tried as an adult. Our experience with these types of cases can ease the process so there’s a better chance of making that indiscretion a life lesson instead of a life changer. 

DUI – Driving Under the Influence

Caught driving “buzzed”? If your initial thought is that it’s no big deal, think again. A DUI arrest is a very serious thing. If you’re convicted, you could pay fines, have your driver’s license suspended, and even see jail time. If this isn’t your first conviction, then you will most probably go to jail and lose your license.

The laws in Pennsylvania are quite strict, complicated, and evolving. You need an attorney that knows the present state of the law, and who can explain your available options. The state will want justice. You’ll want your freedom. We can help. 

Drug Crimes

Convicting individuals on drug charges makes the District Attorney’s office look good. In fact, careers are built on winning cases like these. Prosecutors take these cases very seriously and so should you.

If you’re a first-time offender or if the crime is relatively minor, a deal may be offered to save the taxpayers the expense of a trial. More complicated situations require careful handling by experienced lawyers like the ones in our firm.
