A DUI is serious business in Pennsylvania. It’s expensive and can result in the loss of your driver’s license, hanging around your neck long after you have paid your debt to society.
With a DUI conviction in Pennsylvania, you may have trouble getting a job that requires driving, obtaining car insurance for a reasonable price, or passing a background check.
Our legal team has been very successful at getting our clients out of DUIs. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, we may plead down to a lower crime, such as reckless driving, or we can enter a not guilty plea and present evidence casting doubt on your guilt.
Pennsylvania is anything but lenient when it comes to drug offenses. Marijuana is not legal in the state as of 2018, and you can face serious charges for possessing even small amounts. The penalties are even more serious for other controlled substances.
Even worse, possession of more than a certain quantity of any drug or attempting to transport drugs across state lines can lead to an intent-to-sell or trafficking charge. This a felony that can land you behind bars for a long time.
The McKenzie Law Firm, P.C., can help no matter how grave your situation. We have successfully defended clients accused of possessing or selling the following substances:
- Crack cocaine
- Prescription drugs
Federal crimes refer to those violating federal rather than state statutes. This distinction matters because these crimes are tried in federal courts. Generally, the federal prosecutors are more seasoned and less flexible. A conviction can result in a trip to federal prison.
Our team will go toe-to-toe with federal prosecutors, and we have a successful history of defending clients in federal court. We can help you resolve your situation.
Federal crimes include the following:
- Tax evasion
- Bank fraud
- Mail fraud
- Child pornography
Theft refers to any situation in which you are accused of taking property that is not yours. It does not have to be physical goods. Theft of services — rerouting a cable wire from your neighbor’s house or bailing out of a taxi without paying the fare, for instance — can lead to a theft charge in Pennsylvania.
The state takes any crime involving stealing very seriously. Even if the value of the property was less than $50, you could still face severe consequences, including jail time.
A criminal defense lawyer in Bensalem, PA from McKenzie Law Firm, P.C., can help you put this charge behind you and move on with your life.
White Collar Crimes
People convicted of white-collar crimes face stiff punishments, including years in jail, and the potential loss of their careers and the reputations they spent years building.
