Aggressively Protecting the Rights of Clients Facing Criminal Charges
If law enforcement wants to talk to you, if you are the subject of an investigation, or if you have already been charged with a crime in PA, your first step should be to contact an attorney. There are immediate steps I can take to protect your rights – and without aggressive legal representation, you may miss your only chance to protect yourself.
For over 30 years, I have fought for clients charged with a variety of summary offenses, misdemeanors and felonies:
- Burglary and robbery
- White collar crime
- Probation and parole violations
- Drug offenses
- Rape and other sex offenses
- Domestic violence
- Gun charges
- Juvenile matters
- Expungements and pardons
Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) Program
It’s natural to be fearful and uncertain of what the future holds. If you’re facing a criminal charge, the best thing to do is to speak to an attorney about whether you might be eligible for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program.
ARD is a very real option for many criminal cases. Successful completion of the ARD program means your charges are dismissed and you are eligible for expungement of your criminal record.
Find Out If You're Eligible
Since 1985, I have successfully placed clients into the ARD program for a variety of offenses. Though many people believe ARD is only for DUI, nearly any type of offense can be addressed through ARD. An exception is summary motor vehicle offenses for which ARD is not an option.
You may be eligible for ARD for the following offenses:
- Felony drug crimes
- Retail theft
- White collar crimes such as forgery, check fraud and credit card fraud
- Reckless endangerment
- Aggravated assault
- Fleeing and eluding
- Other misdemeanor and felony offenses
