Federal Criminal Defense
The stakes are high in federal prosecutions. Sentences can be long, and there is no parole for offenses committed after 1987. Federal cases can also be complex. I am committed to giving each client the care and personal attention he or she needs. That is why, if you or a loved one has been found guilty or has been charged with a federal offense and are thinking of pleading guilty, you need an attorney whose practice focuses on federal plea negotiations and post-conviction defense. Unlike most criminal defense attorneys who handle all aspects of state as well as federal cases, I limit my criminal practice to federal plea negotiations and post-conviction defense, including:
By limiting my criminal practice to federal plea negotiations and post-conviction defense, I am able to keep up to date with these complex and rapidly changing areas of law.
Because I handle only a few cases at a time, I can devote the time it takes to do my best for each client. And because I have a highly focused practice, I am able to offer the quality of work normally associated with big firms, but with the personal attention and affordability expected from a small firm.
My office is located in suburban Philadelphia, but I handle cases throughout the United States.
If you or a loved one needs an attorney who regularly represents individuals in federal plea negotiations and post-conviction defense matters, including sentencing, prison designations and transfers, direct appeals, Supreme Court practice, Rule 35 motions, § 2255 motions, and § 2241 petitions, please call (610) 649-8200, or click here to send an e-mail to discuss how I can help.
If you are a member of the United States military whose religious or moral and ethical beliefs prevent you from participating in war, you may be eligible for a conscientious objector (CO) discharge. As one of the few attorneys in the United States who represents conscientious objectors, I devote a small but important part of my practice to assisting them.
If you think you might be a conscientious objector, I can help you determine if you are eligible for a discharge. I can also help you prepare an application and represent you through the process. If you have already applied for and been denied a CO discharge, I can help you evaluate your options, which may include submitting a new application or filing a petition for writ of habeas corpus in federal court.
