Representation of criminal defendants, including "white collar" defendants and witnesses subject to grand jury subpoenas, in state and federal courts.
Examples of our representation in this practice area include:
• The Firm successfully defended a famous professional athlete in a high-profile prosecution, resulting in the dismissal of all charges prior to any trial.
• We successfully defended a media conglomerate and several top-ranking officers of a newspaper criminally charged for publishing an article allegedly in violation of state wiretap laws, securing dismissal of all charges against all of our clients prior to trial.
• We obtained dismissal of multiple criminal charges against our state official client by successfully challenging, in the lower court and on appeal to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the applicable criminal statutes as constitutionally void for vagueness.
