Philadelphia Criminal Defense Lawyer

What We Do!

You may already be thinking that you now need to find a criminal defense lawyer. Someone who is a professional that can guide you through the process and advocate on your behalf. An internet search reveals many options and you don’t know where to start. Subtle promises and innuendo in sales pitches leave you wondering how to make your decision.

But don’t make a mistake: the decision of which lawyer to hire is the most important choice you face right now. The wrong selection might haunt you for the rest of your life. Will you choose the lawyer who flashes awards you’ve never heard of to impress you? The lawyer who tells you he’s the best because the web page he wrote says so? Or will you choose experience? Will you choose the lawyer who takes your money, forgets about you, and shoves a plea deal down your throat at the last minute? Or will you choose a trial lawyer who will fight for the best outcome, while leaving the ultimate decision of what course to pursue up to you after giving you the facts and knowledge you need to make an informed decision?

Just as importantly, do you want a criminal defense attorney or a lawyer who represents clients in all types of matters? Do you want to be represented by the lawyer who spends his week suing for car accidents, filing workers’ compensation claims, writing wills, and trying to fit in some time to investigate your case and litigate your suppression motion? Or should you choose the lawyer whose practice is focused on criminal defense at the trial and appellate level? I’m confident that I’m the right choice for you as long as you’re looking for a lawyer who knows what he’s doing, has the right experience, and will tell you the truth from the outset.

About Philadelphia Criminal Defense Lawyer

It is my privilege as a criminal defense lawyer to represent people against the power of the government. The United States and Pennsylvania Constitutions guarantee those charged with criminal offenses the right to a lawyer, and that is what I do: advocate for good people in bad situations.

I’m a Philadelphia native and have lived in the area my entire life. After graduating from LaSalle College High School and St. Joseph’s University, I attended Rutgers University School of Law in Camden. My fascination with my current area of practice began in my first year of law school, where I awarded the highest grade in my class, an A+, in Criminal Law. That was one of many high grades at Rutgers, from which I graduated with honors. I served as the Articles Editor for the Rutgers Journal of Law and Public Policy and at my graduation ceremony, the law school’s faculty presented me with the Richard L. Barbour Memorial Award in recognition of my pursuit of justice through public service.

I was the law clerk for the United States Attorney’s Office in New Jersey during my second and third year at Rutgers Law, and was appointed as an Assistant District Attorney in Philadelphia after graduation. I worked in the Law Department at the DA’s Office, where I wrote briefs and argued cases in front of Pennsylvania’s highest courts.

After a few years as a prosecutor, I decided to defend individuals rather than prosecute them. This choice has benefitted both my clients and me, as I truly enjoy what I am doing. In private practice, I have successfully represented cases ranging from summary disorderly conduct to first-degree murder.

I represent people during all stages of the criminal process in Pennsylvania’s state and federal courts from the investigatory stage through post-conviction collateral proceedings. I have tried dozens of jury trials and hundreds of bench trials.

I have a perfect rating from AVVO and have been selected as a Top 100 Lawyer by the National Trial Lawyers’ Association and a Super Lawyer. But I urge you to not base a decision of which lawyer to hire on “awards” like that. They don’t mean much. When you’re facing criminal charges, the decision of which lawyer to hire should be based on who you makes you feel comfortable based on his experience and the type of practice he runs.

I recognize that the situation you are facing — whether you’re the subject of an investigation, or you’ve been charged or even already convicted — is the most pressing matter in your life. I know it affects every aspect of your day-to-day existence and weighs heavily on your future plans. I take each case personally because that is what you need in these circumstances.

My practice focuses on individuals. I do not run a high-volume shop, and instead handle each case personally. Find out what I can do for you. Give me a call or fill out the contact form. I’ll be in touch and we’ll talk about moving forward.
