Protecting Your Rights And Reputation Against Criminal Charges

Criminal charges may lead to serious consequences, including possible jail time, steep fines and court costs, a potential permanent record, and even cause you to lose your job.

With more than 30 years of trial experience, our criminal defense lawyers at McCormick & Vilushis LLC have refined our strategies to investigate and defeat criminal charges as well as sharpened our skills at persuading prosecutors, judges and juries. We can be counted on to provide the aggressive defense you need in the face of serious criminal charges.

Attorneys With Unique Levels Of Experience

As former veteran prosecutors who are now defense attorneys, we have a unique perspective when it comes to defending against criminal charges. We have handled every type of case imaginable, from drug crimes to murder cases to traffic offenses. Our background gives us the experience to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution's case. This puts us in the best position possible to explore every possible defense, take the case to trial or successfully negotiate a plea and sentence.

Choosing The Right Lawyer For You

The first question you should ask an attorney you are thinking of hiring for your pending criminal charges is "How many trials have you had in front of a judge or jury?" Their answer should not include preliminary hearings. Our criminal defense attorneys have handled well over 100 jury and nonjury trials over the course of their legal careers.

Not all criminal defense attorneys in northwestern Pennsylvania are created equal. Without an attorney who regularly handles criminal cases and who keeps up with often complex changes in the law, you might be making matters worse for yourself. Again, has your attorney actually been in criminal jury trials fighting for their client? Isn't that something you should expect?
