Types of Legal Cases We Handle

Our attorneys can help you address many kinds of legal issues. These are some of the main types of cases we handle. If you have an issue you don’t see listed here, please get in touch with us to ask. If we can’t directly help with a given problem, we may be able to refer you to an attorney who can.

Criminal Defense

Whether you have never been arrested before or have previous experience with the criminal justice system, facing criminal charges is always stressful. When you have a skilled attorney on your side, you gain a powerful advocate who will take the time to build you a customized, convincing defense.
Our founders have served as both prosecutors and defense attorneys. Because they’ve seen the criminal justice system from both sides, they’re uniquely equipped to anticipate and counter the prosecution’s arguments against you.

DUI

Driving under the influence (DUI) is treated as a criminal offense in Pennsylvania. However, because Pennsylvania DUI laws are so complicated and nuanced, DUI is sometimes treated as its own area of law.
Whether you’re dealing with a first-time misdemeanor DUI or facing felony charges for a DUI that resulted in a serious injury or death, our attorneys are here for you.
DUIs generally have a high conviction rate, but even if you’re convicted, all hope isn’t lost. We may be able to argue for reduced penalties.

Estate Planning

No one likes to think about planning their estate. However, if you put it off forever, your loved ones will be left to deal with a mountain of confusion on top of the grief they’re already experiencing.
When you set up a will, a trust, or both, you can eliminate confusion over how your money and belongings should be distributed. In some cases, you might even be able to limit the taxes your loved ones pay on anything they inherit.

Business Law

Business law” is a fairly broad category of law, and our firm can help you address many business-related legal issues. Our founders both come from business-owning families, and their business law practice often focuses on helping entrepreneurs establish their new businesses.
When your new venture is just starting out, you need to make sure you build a solid foundation. That means you have the right kind of liability insurance, draw up different types of contracts, set up a tax strategy, and more. We want to see you succeed!

Personal Injury Claims

If you’ve been hurt because someone else was negligent, we may be able to pursue the at-fault party or organization for compensation.
Money can’t erase the physical and emotional trauma that comes with serious injuries. However, when you have financial assistance, you won’t have to be stressed over whether you can afford basic living expenses.
We help clients who are facing a range of injury types, but three of the most common ones we see are car accidents, dog bites, and premises liability (“slip and fall”) cases.
If we take your personal injury case, we are only paid on a contingency basis. That means we only get paid if we win your case, and that pay is a percentage of any monetary award you receive. You never have to pay out-of-pocket.

Civil Lawsuits

Personal injury claims are a type of civil lawsuit, but they’re a little different from other kinds of civil lawsuits. While we can help you with a range of civil lawsuits, many of our clients come to us with either landlord-tenant disputes or employer-employee contract issues.
We have successfully represented both landlords and tenants as well as both employers and employees. These kinds of disputes can be very mentally taxing, but we can help you find the confidence that comes with having a plan.

Family Law

Family law is another practice area that can be emotionally fraught. Our attorneys are here to support you through challenging times as well as help you find a solution that benefits everyone in your family.
If you’re facing divorce, navigating child custody disputes, or seeking a protection from abuse order from an abusive spouse or significant other, please get in touch.

Need Quality Legal Representation?

We know that when you’re dealing with any kind of legal issue, the stakes are high. Don’t gamble with representing yourself — in many cases, having an experienced attorney on your side can mean the difference between getting the outcome you want and walking away disappointed.
