Drexel Hill Criminal Defense Lawyer

Being under investigation or charged with a criminal offense is an intimidating experience. Police and prosecutors have unlimited resources, and they operate from an advantageous position. If you have never been arrested before, you’ll be completely unprepared for a trip to a local police station and lockup. Your initial inclination might be to give a confession in hopes of being released with a court date. That would be your first mistake, and without an experienced and effective Drexel Hill criminal defense lawyer, you’re likely to make other mistakes too. All of those mistakes are probably going to be used against you by police and prosecutors in order to obtain a conviction. Don’t ever speak about an investigation or a crime that you are charged with to anybody, especially law enforcement personnel. Rather than doing that, speak with a Drexel Hill criminal defense lawyer from our offices.

Protecting Your Best Interests
There are critical steps that you can take to protect your rights and liberty. Police officers are well aware of the fact that they’re in a position of power, especially when you’re unrepresented, suspected of a crime and being detained. If you exercise your right to remain silent and your right to an attorney before you are charged with a crime, you’ll be protecting both your freedom and your future.

Defense Strategy
We’ve represented countless individuals on a wide variety of charges over the years. We scrutinize law enforcement procedures and evidence both in your favor and against you. All aspects of your case are thoroughly examined. Whether you case concludes with a dismissal, a negotiated plea or a bench or jury trial, an effective defense will be built on your behalf. Here are just a few of the defenses that we might raise:

  • A motion to suppress evidence illegally seized.
  • A motion to exclude a confession or statements that might be viewed as incriminating.
  • Calling the credibility of witnesses against you into question.
  • Attacking the chain of custody in the handling of evidence.
  • Raising the issue of contamination and sloppy lab work.
  • Arguing that you didn’t have the requisite intent to commit the crime that you’re charged with.

Types of Criminal Cases That We Handle
A dedicated and effective Drexel Hill criminal defense lawyer can make the difference between walking out of a courthouse as a free person or serving time in jail or in prison. Here are a few examples of just some of the types of cases that we represent clients in:

  • Assault and battery.
  • Domestic violence.
  • Burglary and crimes against property.
  • Possession, delivery and trafficking of controlled substances.
  • Computer crimes and identity theft.
  • White collar crimes.
  • Sexual assault.
  • DUI and related offenses.
  • Weapons crimes.
  • Manslaughter and murder.

Invoke Your Rights
A criminal conviction can have collateral consequences. Employment, housing and educational opportunities can be put at risk. The prosecution has the burden of proving you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Hold them to that burden. Don’t give the police and the prosecution the evidence that they need to convict you. Protect yourself by invoking your right to remain silent and your right to counsel as soon as possible. Don’t believe what police officers tell you either. They have no authority to make things easier on you. They might have a weak case and know that prosecutors can’t get a conviction without a statement or confession from you.

Contact us to arrange for a free consultation and case review with a Drexel Hill criminal defense lawyer right away after being taken into custody for any alleged offense. You’re justifiably concerned, and our commitment to you is to pursue the best possible outcome for you. You’ll receive honest and practical legal advice that will help you understand what you’re facing and allow you to make informed decisions regarding your future.

"I found Michael Kotik via the internet with the hope by someone to help my son in what we thought was something routine. Long story short after being mislead by the prior firm and received no results and my son sat for 18 months in prison because "no one knew what was going on" Michael was able to not only..."
