SKA Law is a premier, Philadelphia criminal defense law firm, founded by professional criminal attorneys. We take on cases other law firms turn down, because we know how to fight – and when to negotiate. Our goal is to get you the best outcome possible. No fluff. No nonsense. Our focus is results.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a misdemeanor or a felony. Worry and uncertainty follow an arrest, especially if you’ve never been in trouble with the law before. You’re not going to want somebody new to criminal defense representing you either. A knowledgeable, experienced and effective Marple Township criminal defense attorney from our offices who has devoted years in practice providing clients with the highest quality of defense possible is the best choice for your representation. We’re dedicated to defending the rights and freedom of our clients. Here are some of the criminal charges that we work with:
Don’t Give a Statement or Confession
You have the right to remain silent and not incriminate yourself. Any statement or confession that you give will be used against you by the prosecution in efforts to convict you. Even a statement of innocence can be misunderstood or misquoted. If you’re being investigated, or you’ve been taken into custody, don’t believe what the police might be telling you. It’s perfectly legal for them to lie or make false promises to you in order to get a statement or confession from you. Protect your freedom by politely refusing to answer any questions and insisting that you be able to contact your attorney.
Refuse Search Requests
If police ask to search your vehicle or your home, refuse to give them permission to do so. If they had a search warrant, they’re not going to ask. If a search takes place without your permission or a warrant, and it leads to an arrest, advise us accordingly. We can evaluate the circumstances surrounding the search. If questionable tactics were used, we can bring a motion to suppress any evidence that was illegally seized.
We thoroughly evaluate every piece of evidence that might be used to prove your guilt or innocence. That’s how we’re able to build an effective defense. Your case will be prepared as if it is going to trial. That’s when prosecutors realize the risks of taking your case to a jury. Aside from motions to suppress evidence illegally seized, here are some of the other motions that might be filed and argued by us in your defense:
Participation in Your Defense is Critical
There are some excellent criminal lawyers in the Office of the Delaware County Public Defender. They’re overworked and burdened by their caseloads though. Meeting with them or even speaking with them over the phone is difficult. After an arrest, you’re going to want to see your attorney right away, so you can start participating in your defense as soon as possible. You’ll be able to do that with a Marple Township criminal defense attorney from our law firm. Time spent with your attorney might be one of the keys to a dismissal, a favorable negotiated disposition or even a not guilty verdict.
Making Informed Decisions
You are presumed innocent of all charges against you. The prosecution has the burden of proving you guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. In our representation of you, we hold the prosecution to that burden. A criminal conviction can impact your job and personal life too, so we understand your concerns and why you have questions. In understandable terms, all of your rights, the possible penalties for what you are charged with and defenses available to you will be fully explained. By doing that, you can make informed decisions.
After an arrest, you need to act quickly and decisively. Choose the right Marple Township criminal defense attorney by contacting our offices for a free consultation and case review.
