Criminal Defense

Violent Crimes Defense Attorney

With over 20 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer, I have successfully defended and mitigated penalties against clients accused of violent offenses. I use investigators and forensic witnesses to prepare the best possible defense for my clients.

DUI and DWI Defense Attorney

My approach to DUI defense is systematic. At the initial interview with my client, I share my analysis and explain the law. I also counsel clients regarding available diversionary programs (ARD) that avoid otherwise mandatory minimum sentences.

Drug Crimes / Offenses Defense Attorney

My ability to cross-examine both seasoned police witnesses and informants benefits my clients in drug crime cases. I advocate on behalf of clients in and around Chester County for diversionary programs to avoid convictions and allow for the destruction of arrest records.

Sex Crimes Defense Attorney

I provide a vigorous defense through the use of investigators and forensic witnesses. When clients acknowledge some level of culpability, I cultivate helpful mitigation evidence designed to avoid potentially harsh penalties.

Juvenile Defense Attorney

I am adept at navigating the complex relationship between my juvenile client, their parents, and myself. I help juveniles avoid adjudications, placing them in position for a swift expungement of arrest records.

Federal & White Collar Crimes Defense Attorney

No one ever anticipates being involved in a Federal trial. These are intellectually challenging cases and ones in which I particularly enjoy protecting my client’s interests.
