Assault Laws (PA)

There are only a small handful of attorneys who are truly qualified to handle a Homicide (Murder) or serious Aggravated Assault case. I have handled numerous Homicide and Aggravated Assault cases taking many of them to trial. These cases require a seasoned attorney with exceptional trial skills. Over the past 25 plus years, I have proven that I will challenge the prosecutor, identify weaknesses in their case and fight to protect your constitutional rights. I firmly believe that with hard work, tenacity and detailed oriented case preparation we can level the playing field and you will have a fair shot at receiving a fair and just result.
