Representation of criminal defendants, including "white collar" defendants and witnesses subject to grand jury subpoenas, in state and federal courts.
The following are examples of our representation in this practice area:
Sprague & Sprague successfully defended a famous professional athlete in a high-profile prosecution, resulting in the dismissal of all charges prior to any trial.
The Firm 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. We secured the dismissal of all charges against all of our clients prior to trial.
We successfully obtained the dismissal of multiple criminal charges against a state official on the basis that the criminal statutes at issue were constitutionally void for vagueness and obtained a ruling from the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania affirming the dismissal.
