Lancaster Criminal Defense Attorney

Seasoned Experience for Your Defense

If you have recently been arrested or if you are under investigation for a crime, you know you are facing serious, life-altering consequences if you are convicted. Not only is your freedom at risk, but your future ability to obtain a job, your personal relationships, and your financial stability are all on the line. Our criminal justice system is particularly harsh with its penalties, and if you are already facing charges, then law enforcement has already made up its mind about you. The prosecution is going to work around the clock to prove your guilt, and they will argue for the toughest punishment possible. Your best chance for retaining your freedom lies in the legal representation you choose. Someone who is inexperienced may not know all of the nuances of the applicable laws. Someone who isn't dedicated to your case may not spend the requisite hours ensuring that every base is covered. You need to secure the best Lancaster criminal defense attorney you can find. At Ilkhanoff & Silverstein, we have more than 30 years experience in the field of criminal law. We are intimately familiar with the criminal justice system, from statutes and case law and misdemeanors to felonies. We are dedicated to helping our clients overcome the charges that have been levied against them.

We understand what you are going through right now, and we have seen first-hand how difficult it is for people when they are facing the possibility of going to jail or prison. Regardless of the circumstances that led you to where you are today, we will vigorously pursue each and every avenue in getting your charges reduced or dismissed entirely. As a full service law firm, we are adept at handling any challenges that may arise.

Fighting for Your Rights

Our Lancaster criminal defense practice areas include a broad range of misdemeanor and felony offenses ranging from DUI to serious violent crimes. We have successfully defended innumerable clients throughout our thirty years of practice. Whether you are a parent whose son or daughter has been charged with a juvenile crime, or if you have been accused of any sort of drug crime or theft crime, we can help. Our firm is steadfast in its commitment to defending your rights. We can also handle your case if you have been accused of a traffic offense, a probation violation, one of many different internet crimes, or a sex crime.

In some circumstances, you may be eligible to have your record cleaned, meaning that when you apply for a job or want to lease an apartment, your criminal record will not affect you. If you need assistance applying for an expungement, call our firm today to find out more.

For those individuals who need a defense attorney in a PFA (Protection from Abuse Act) case, we are here to assist you as well. As seasoned criminal defense attorneys, we know that just because you were arrested does not mean that you are guilty. It's our duty and responsibility to stay abreast of any recent changes to the Pennsylvania state law and federal law so we can use it to the advantage of our clients. We know exactly what tools to use when going up against the prosecution, and we will use those tools to search for and unearth any flaws in their case against you. We are results driven and detail oriented; sometimes the smallest detail can mean the difference between going to prison and maintaining your freedom. You deserve nothing less than the best defense you can find, so call us today! The sooner we get started, the greater our chances of turning your case around in your favor.
