We are a full-service law firm with attorneys specializing in Criminal Defense. We can help you with any of the following:
DUIDriving Under the Influence (DUI) is considered a crime in Pennsylvania and is rigorously enforced in Bucks County. If you are charged with DUI, prosecutors will have to prove that you were actually under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This can be done using field sobriety testing, in-station breath testing, or blood testing, all of which are available for our review. We can then contest these findings to help you obtain the best result possible.
Drug CrimesIf you are charged with any crime alleging Possession of Drugs or an intent to distribute, there are ways to contest the charges. We can contest these charges on two grounds: the facts or on the law (technicalities). If there is an issue concerning identity or whether you were there on the day of the offense, we can contest the charges. More often than not, however, the best chance you have of overcoming these charges rests on the validity, or the lack thereof, of the search, seizure, or the arrest itself. If we can find a way in which the police did not follow proper procedure, it is then possible to have the charges dropped or modified.
Property CrimesBurglary, Receiving Stolen Property, Retail Theft, Identity Theft, and other financial crimes, are all crimes against property. In defending these types of cases, we look at possible defenses, such as whether the police identified the wrong person, a lack of physical evidence, or even whether you were entitled to use the property and/or money alleged to have been taken.
Crimes Against PersonsCrimes against persons all involve causing physical harm to another person. As such, these crimes include such areas as Assault, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, sex crimes, and any other crime that alleges an injury to another person. Our strategy with regards to crimes against persons is similar to our approach in dealing with other crimes, with one notable exception – these crimes tend to be one person’s word against another’s. We can then assert claims such as self-defense in assault cases, consent in sexual crime cases, and use several other defenses only available to these types of crimes. Furthermore, we can contest these crimes by discrediting the witness or demonstrating that our client’s actions were legal, or unintentional.
Other ServicesWe also defend clients in Bucks County Court for Probation Violations. and Parole Violations. Defending someone in these kinds of cases requires a different approach -- one that focuses on reducing the amount of time you serve on a violation or altogether winning the violation charge. Probation and parole violations are brought when an individual violates the terms of their probation/parole, and are now facing serving the rest of their original sentence. Assistance with Expungements is another valuable service we provide. By filing an expungement, we can help clear arrests or some convictions from your record. Expunging your record is important because employers, schools, and even some government programs require a clean record.
