Biography

25 office locations throughout Pennsylvania. Call for nearest office location.

I am a former Senior Deputy District Attorney with personal experience in over 10,000 court cases, ranging from minor traffic offenses to homicide. In addition to criminal and traffic defense, I have been practicing Bankruptcy since 1999 and have helped thousands of clients get a Fresh Financial Start.
My practice is limited to Criminal, DUI, Traffic and Bankruptcy cases. I am NOT a general practitioner who handles many different types of law. Criminal and Bankruptcy law is the only law that I have practiced since I became a lawyer over 25 years ago.
Over the past 25+ years of practice I have worked with thousands of police officers and have appeared in court on countless occasions. Few attorneys possess my firm’s background and extensive experience in this area of the law.

CUSTOMER SERVICE - I treat clients the way I would want to be treated if I was experiencing legal problems – with honesty, kindness and respect. I do not tell clients what they want to hear just to get a case. I do not scare clients into retaining me. I will never say to a client “Don’t worry about it.” What I do is tell clients the truth, right over the phone. I call clients back, even at night or on weekends. Additionally, my staff is well-informed and very helpful if I am not in the office when you call.

FREE IN-DEPTH CONSULTATIONS - I gladly talk to new clients over the phone, for as long as you wish. I will answer every question that you have over the phone, or even in person if you prefer, for free. I will gladly explain all of your options, give you my honest opinion about what could happen to you and I even quote a fee and a flexible payment plan, right over the phone. I believe that an informed client is the best client. Again, if I was having legal problems, that is the way that I would want to be treated.

Legal Answers
Q. I told him my new address. Would that make a difference?
A: If he filed it with the wrong address, you may be already suspended. You need to either call the court where it happened or a lawyer to look into it
Q. I was pulled over a month and a half ago. And the office said I would be getting a ticket in the mail
A: Was your correct address on your license because that is likely where it was sent. Call a lawyer as it can be checked online. If it has not been filed, there is a 30 day statute of limitations so it may be too late to file it now, if it hasn't yet been filed. Don't ignore it because if it was filed, you will lose your license for failing to respond. Good luck!
Q. I was pulled over for yielding at a stop sign.
A: Do you not just plead guilty because you are facing three points on your license if convicted. Points can lead to higher insurance rates and also if you get another ticket in the following year you could lose your license if you go over six points. Get a lawyer who will help you either fight the case to go to trial or work out a resolution with the officer for no points so that it does not appear on your record. Depending on the judge, your lawyer may be able to go to court for you so that you would not have to take time out of your day to go to court. Start calling experienced traffic lawyers to see who you feel most comfortable with and who has the most experience in this area of law. Good luck
