Pennsylvania takes drug crimes very seriously. Recreational marijuana is not legal here as of 2018, and possession of even a small amount can lead to severe penalties. If you are accused of possessing hard drugs, the consequences are even more severe.
Additionally, if you were allegedly caught possessing more than a certain quantity of drugs or trying to transport drugs across state lines, you could face an intent-to-sell or trafficking charge. This charge could lead to a felony conviction and major jail time.
We can defend you against drug charges involving the following substances:
- Prescription drugs
A federal crime is a violation of a federal statute. These cases get tried in federal courts, where the prosecutors tend to be highly educated, skilled, and aggressive. A conviction means severe penalties, including federal prison.

Theft is another crime treated harshly by Pennsylvania courts. It does not even have to involve stealing a tangible product. Theft of services and obtaining goods by manipulation both qualify as theft in Pennsylvania. What is more, you could face jail time or a hefty fine even if the value of goods or services you are convicted of stealing is less than $50.

Following the financial crisis of 2008, Pennsylvania has become much more vigilant about prosecuting white-collar crimes. Whereas a conviction two decades ago may have resulted in a fine and a slap on the wrist, today it can lead to serious jail time.
