Theft and Burglary Attorney in the Delaware County

Experienced Buglary Defense Lawyer in and around Media, Pennsylvania

If you have been charged with a theft crime in Pennsylvania, it is extremely important to hire an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer to protect your interests. In theft cases, prosecutors tend to throw the book at you, charging you with everything that might conceivably fit and then seeking a plea bargain for a lesser offense. You want an attorney who has successfully protected the rights of others in similar circumstances and has the experience to see through this strategy. 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 theft, burglary or receiving stolen goods. 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 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.

I will take the time to carefully investigate the details of your case, including the methods used by police or prosecutors to gather evidence against you.
