Drug Crime Defense Attorney Serving Delaware County, PA

Defending Those charged with drug crimes in and around Media, Pennsylvania

Have you been arrested for a drug crime, or are you under investigation for a drug charge? State and federal authorities take a serious approach to drug violations in Pennsylvania. The penalties can be severe, including significant fines and jail time. You can also put your employment at risk. I am an attorney experienced in representing people charged with crimes, including drug offenses -and I can help.

In your defense, I offer more than 32 years of experience to people in the Delaware Valley who have been charged with a possession and intent to distribute crimes. Before opening my private practice 10 years ago, I served the state of Pennsylvania as an Assistant District Attorney, prosecuting cases for 6 years in Dauphin County (Harrisburg) and 16 years in Delaware County. I know the different ways that prosecutors prepare and present drug cases, and what value they give to different types of evidence.

There is no charge for an initial review of your case. Please contact my office by e-mail or call me at 610-565-8412.

In drug cases, there can often be legitimate questions about whether evidence against you was legally obtained. Police may act on a tip from an unreliable informant, or may otherwise fail to have probable cause to conduct a search or seizure. I will carefully review the actions of police and prosecutors to determine whether your constitutional rights were violated. I will also interview all potential witnesses to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and to determine the credibility of all testimony. If you were not properly advised of your rights when taken into custody, or if law enforcement officers violated your rights in any other way, I will immediately seek to exclude any tainted evidence and to have all charges dismissed, if appropriate.
