Lehigh County, PA Criminal Defense Lawyer
Being accused of a crime is always an extremely stressful situation. Depending on the specifics and severity of the charge, you stand to lose your home, your money, your reputation, and even your freedom, for months, years, decades — or life. Even comparatively minor crimes can lead to misdemeanor charges which linger on your criminal record and can prevent you from obtaining a job, a home, or even meaningful personal relationships — and felony convictions have even harsher repercussions. Across the board, a criminal conviction carries extremely unpleasant consequences in both the short- and the long-term, no matter what the nature of the crime may be.
How Our Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Attorneys Can Help You

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the allegations against you, it is never in your best interests to attempt to represent yourself in court.
