Philadelphia Criminal Defense Lawyers

Offering Skilled Advocacy Against Felony and Misdemeanor Charges

Being accused of a crime is one of the most serious and stressful experiences one can have. When you or a loved one is charged with a crime, you need a seasoned and respected criminal defense attorney on your side.

At Avallone Law Associates, we are here to defend your rights with dedication and competence. We offer more than 35 years of experience in the five-county region court system and in federal court. Our Philadelphia criminal defense attorneys apply their years of experience, legal skills and access to a network of investigators in developing an effective defense strategy against felony and misdemeanor charges.

Representing Clients in All Aspects of Criminal Law

Our firm defends those accused of a broad range of crimes in the Philadelphia area. Some of the cases we handle include:

  • DUI/DWI/drunk driving
  • Speeding, reckless driving and all other traffic violations
  • Gun charges
  • Drug offenses, including defense of pharmacists accused of prescription drug crimes
  • Summary offenses such as disorderly conduct and harassment
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Sex crimes, ranging from child pornography to sexual assault
  • Private criminal complaints where police were not involved

Whenever possible, we work to get charges dismissed outright. If that is not realistic, we work to have sentences reduced so our clients' lives are impacted as little as possible. For first-time offenders convicted of minor offenses, we often try to get the client into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program, which keeps the person out of jail.

If you were arrested but not convicted, you still have a criminal record. In these situations, Avallone Law Associates can help you file for an expungement, which erases the record and gives you a clean slate.

What If You Have Already Been Convicted?

A criminal conviction can turn your life upside down. Appealing a conviction is the first step toward clearing your name. New evidence, ineffective assistance of counsel and errors by the trial court are just a few possible grounds for appeal.

If you were convicted and served your sentence, we may be able to get a pardon. A pardon comes from the governor and the Board of Pardons. Properly requesting a pardon is something that is best done through our experienced lawyers.

Pennsylvania's Three Strikes Law

Pennsylvania, along with a number of other states, has a three strikes law. Under this law, a person convicted of three violent crimes will be sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. That is why it is so important, if you are charged with robbery, rape, homicide or other serious offenses, to enlist the help of an experienced defense lawyer. For those accused of multiple violent crimes, a powerful defense can mean the difference between a short sentence and life behind bars.
