Even if it is your first offense, you could lose your license, face hefty fines, and even go to jail. If you are accused of having a high blood alcohol content (BAC), or there are other aggravating factors such as prior DUI convictions, the consequences get much worse.
McKenzie Law Firm, P.C. will fight your DUI charge, and we have many tools at our disposal.

In other cases where the prosecution’s evidence was more substantial, we have been able to avoid convictions by working out plea deals to lesser offenses.
Pennsylvania has stringent drug laws, as well. Marijuana is still not legal in the state for recreational use, and possessing even a small amount could land you in jail. The penalties for possessing “harder” drugs are worse.
If you are accused of possessing above a certain quantity of drugs or trying to transport drugs across state lines, you may face an “intent to distribute” charge. This is a serious offense that can result in a jail sentence similar to what is given to a person caught selling drugs.
A criminal defense lawyer in Lower Providence, PA will defend you aggressively against any charge of possessing, selling, or intending to distribute:
- Prescription drugs
When you get charged with a federal crime, your case gets tried in federal court. There, the prosecutors and judges tend to have many years of experience and have a reputation for being no-nonsense types.
With his years of experience as a prosecutor, David McKenzie is in a unique position to represent clients in federal courts and go toe-to-toe with the experienced attorneys who will be prosecuting your case.
Examples of federal crimes include:
- Bank fraud
- Mail fraud
- Tax evasion
Pennsylvania takes theft seriously, even if the value of the property allegedly taken is low. You could even face serious consequences if convicted of theft of property worth under $50.
A theft conviction in Pennsylvania does not require stealing physical property. We have represented many clients accused of theft of service, for instance. This can include something as seemingly innocuous as sneaking into a gym of which you are not a member.
The term “white-collar crimes” is a wide umbrella used to describe non-violent offenses perpetrated for the sole purpose of monetary gain, often by high-ranking businesspeople, executives, or politicians.
A conviction of a white-collar crime can result in a lengthy jail sentence and major fines, but we will fight the charges and help you move past them with the least amount of damage.
