Criminal Defense

Federal Defense

Federal criminal law is a specialized and complex branch of criminal advocacy requiring knowledge of federal statutes, federal rules of criminal procedure and the United States Sentencing Guidelines.

Federal cases are serious and carry stiff consequences, much more so than state crimes. Sentences in federal court can be harsh due to minimum mandatory sentences of incarceration. Conviction rates are high for defendants charged with Federal crimes as the United States Attorneys are aided by specialized government agents and cases are prosecuted with great skill and determination.

In order to stand up to the Federal government, you need a seasoned courtroom attorney who possesses the necessary knowledge, skill, resources, and personality to assure that justice is served and the most favorable outcome achieved.

Our firm has a great track record with jurors in federal court and will do what it takes to obtain the best result. Recently, our firm was successful in obtaining a not guilty verdict in a high profile case in Federal Court in Philadelphia where the conviction rate is 97 percent.

Our firm aggressively and confidently defends clients accused of federal crimes such as:

  • Drug Distribution
  • Money Laundering
  • Mail Fraud
  • Bank Fraud
  • Wire Fraud
  • Theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Bribery
  • Extortion

  • Identity Theft
  • Perjury

Municipal Court/Traffic Tickets/License Suspension

Over the course of our practice, we have handled in excess of 200 cases in Municipal Court both in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

State Defense

Our firm represents those charged with state crimes in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  Effective strategies underpin each stage of the criminal process from pre-trial motions through discovery, jury selection, courtroom presentation, cross examinations, closing argument and sentencing. We work closely with our clients discussing events and gathering all details pertinent to their defense.  The primary role of a criminal defense attorney is to unearth evidence that creates doubt and plants seeds for acquittal. Our process requires strong communication with our clients.  We also analyze each case from the perspective of the prosecution.  This allows us to strategize from all angles and gives us an advantage for winning your case.

Professional License Litigation

Our firm represents those faced with the loss of their professional licenses due to criminal convictions.  We have been very successful in advocating for professionals before State Licensing Boards in preventing and limiting the loss of professional licenses.


Many criminal charges can be erased or expunged from your record.  When you are charged with a crime, even if the charges are dropped, you never appear in Court or the case is dismissed, it still creates a permanent criminal record.  This can have an adverse impact on your future and that is why you need a lawyer committed to helping erase criminal records through expungement.  Our firm has been highly successful in obtaining expungements and are fully committed to helping you clear your name so you can move forward with your life.
