Types of Criminal Defense Law Practiced

At Win Big Law, we have a wealth of experience defending clients in criminal cases against various criminal charges. Our criminal defense attorneys in Pennsylvania developed their criminal law litigation skills by working as elite State and Federal Prosecutors. Now, our team of experienced criminal defense attorneys are dedicated to providing top-notch legal representation for individuals facing criminal charges in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Driving While Intoxicated (DUI)

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has extensive DUI laws (75 Pa.C.S.A. § 3802 et seq). Depending on a person’s prior criminal history, and blood alcohol level (BAC), the potential penalties for a DUI range from six months of probation and a $300 fine to up to five years of incarceration and a $10,000 fine (75 Pa.C.S.A. § 3804). In addition to fines and penalties, a person faces other collateral consequences, such as losing their driving privileges, which is why representation by an experienced criminal defense lawyer is essential.

Drug Charges

Under Pennsylvania Law (35 P.S. § 780-113), possessing a controlled substance or a controlled substance with the intent to distribute is illegal. Drug charges can carry severe penalties, including jail time, fines, and a permanent criminal record. The penalties for drug crimes can increase dramatically for possessing or trafficking schedule I or schedule II narcotics (35 P.S. § 780-104).

Assault and Threat Crimes

Pennsylvania has two forms of assault, simple (18 Pa.C.S.A. § 2701) or aggravated (18 Pa.C.S.A. § 2702). Simple assault involves intentionally or recklessly inflicting a bodily injury or placing a person in fear of a bodily injury, while aggravated assault involves intentionally inflicting a serious bodily injury. Depending on what a person is charged with, they face potential penalties ranging from two years in prison for misdemeanor assault (18 Pa.C.S.A. § 1104) to 20 years in prison for felony aggravated assault (18 Pa.C.S.A. § 1103

Juvenile Offenses

Being charged with a juvenile offense can have severe consequences for a child’s future. Depending on the crime a child is accused of committing, they can automatically be charged as an adult. If a child is adjudicated as a delinquent (42 Pa.C.S.A. § 6352), they enter a system which is designed to reform and rehabilitate as opposed to inflicting punishment. 

Sex Crime Charges

Sex crime charges are some of the most serious charges a person can face and can carry lifelong consequences. Depending on the crime (42 Pa.C.S.A. § 9799.14), a person may have to register as a sex offender for the rest of their life (42 Pa.C.S.A. § 9799.15). The criminal defense attorneys at Win Big will fight tirelessly to protect your rights, freedom, and your future.

Domestic Violence Charges

Pennsylvania does not have a specific criminal statute dealing with domestic violence. Instead, domestic violence covers a wide range of criminal acts of violence which occur in domestic relationships. In addition to criminal penalties, domestic violence and acts of abuse (23 Pa.C.S.A. § 6102) can result in a court issuing a Protection From Abuse Order.

Criminal Process in Pennsylvania

Navigating the criminal justice system can be overwhelming and intimidating. Prosecutors use this to their advantage to intimidate people into accepting unfavorable plea deals. At Win Big Law, our criminal defense attorneys refuse to be intimidated and instead investigate possible legal and factual defenses on behalf of our clients to obtain the best possible results.

Driving While Intoxicated (DUI)

Seeking Release Through Bail

Unless a person is charged with a capital offense or poses an extreme threat to the community, they are entitled to bail under Pennsylvania law (42 Pa.C.S.A. § 5701). If a person cannot afford bail, they can request a bail reduction. To obtain a bail reduction, they must convince a judge they do not pose a danger to the community and are not a flight risk.

Appearance Before a Judge

If you have been charged with a felony, you are entitled to a request for a preliminary hearing before a judge. At this hearing, the prosecution must present enough evidence to establish a prima facie case for each criminal charge. While you are not permitted to give evidence, an experienced criminal defense attorney can help you challenge the prosecution’s case.

Indictment

If you have been indicted, it is important to have an experienced attorney on your side. An indictment is issued by a grand jury which is composed of jurors who only hear evidence presented by a prosecutor. Specifically, a grand jury merely decides if there is probable cause to support charging a person with a crime. 

Trial

Trial

In a criminal case, a person is constitutionally entitled to the presumption of innocence. To overcome this presumption and secure a conviction, a prosecutor must prove every element of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt and obtain a unanimous guilty verdict from a jury of 12 individuals. At Win Big, our criminal defense attorneys do everything they can to prevent prosecutors from meeting their burden at trial to obtain acquittals for our clients.

Post-Conviction Motions

Post-Conviction Motions

If a person has been convicted of a crime, it is not necessarily the end of the road. A person can pursue a direct appeal following their trial. A person can also seek post-conviction relief pursuant to Pennsylvania’s Post Conviction Relief Act (42 Pa.C.S.A. § 9541) if they qualify based on grounds (42 Pa.C.S.A. § 9543) such as ineffective assistance of counsel, newly discovered evidence, etc.
