Erie Criminal Defense Attorneys | Pennsylvania Criminal Lawyers

Criminal charges may lead to severe consequences that could change your lifestyle, future job opportunities and your standing in society. Our Erie criminal defense lawyers create sophisticated strategies to investigate and argue criminal charges, and they have the skills required to persuade prosecutors, judges and juries. We can be counted on to provide the aggressive defense you need in the face of serious criminal charges.

Former Erie Criminal Prosecutors Defending Your Rights

The professional background of our attorneys includes their experience in the criminal justice system at the Erie County District Attorney’s Office. Their knowledge of Erie’s criminal justice process has provided us with a unique perspective to address criminal charges. Along with a respected tenure in the criminal justice system, our attorneys have also handled complex murder cases in jury trials.

Some of the cases we handle include:

Our background in justice gives us the experience to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution’s case. This puts us in a unique position to explore every possible defense to a criminal case and then take the case to trial or successfully negotiate a plea and sentence.

Choosing The Right Lawyer For You

The first question you should ask a criminal defense 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 in the criminal discovery process. Our Erie criminal defense attorneys have handled well over 100 jury and nonjury trials over the course of their legal careers.

Without an attorney who focuses on criminal defense and 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?
