Criminal Defense

Within Practice Area:

The immediate retention of competent, experienced and effective defense counsel is critical to protecting your interests in a criminal matter. The attorneys in our criminal defense practice group have decades of experience in defending the rights of individuals facing serious, life-changing penalties including incarceration, probation, fines, a criminal record, and forfeiture of property, office or professional licenses. Because of what is at stake, we provide the utmost attention to all criminal matters, large or small. This include minor misdemeanor/summary offense cases, as well as felonies resulting, potentially, in decades of prison time.

The firm provides seasoned representation in criminal matters heard in municipal/magisterial, state and federal courts. Our attorneys have experience handling and negotiating matters involving everything from petty disorderly offenses to firearms possession, securities violations, Ponzi schemes, credit card fraud, racketeering, tax evasion, money laundering, bribery, mail and wire fraud, narcotics, sex crimes, traffic crimes, and immigration-related offenses. Our experience includes pre-indictment negotiations, motion practice, trials and appellate litigation. Our attorneys always negotiate with prosecutors proactively to avoid indictment/formal charges so as to secure an optimal resolution. Where such a resolution is not possible, we work tirelessly to provide our clients with a vigorous defense, at every stage, including trial.
