Media, PA Violent Crimes Defense Lawyer

Experienced Representation in Delaware County for those Charged with Violent Crimes

Have you been charged with a crime involving physical violence? The consequences can be severe and affect all aspects of your life. In addition to the criminal sanctions, you may also face civil penalties, including a civil protection from abuse (PFA) order that prohibits you from contact with certain people (including your children). You want an experienced attorney who understands the law and the legal process, as well as your options, to protect your rights. W. Wayne Punshon at Punshon Law 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 violent crime such as aggravated assault. 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 various methods that prosecutors use to prepare and present cases involving violent crimes.

I provide a free initial review of your case to every client. To arrange a private meeting, contact my office online or call me at 610-565-8412.

I will fully investigate the facts of your case, seeking to gather and preserve all evidence to support your defense. I will carefully review police reports and will interview witnesses to identify all potential defenses, such as mistaken identity, consent, self-defense or the defense of others. I will also verify that police followed constitutional procedures at all times, confirming that there was probable cause for any search or seizure, and that you were properly notified of your Miranda rights if taken into custody.
