Why You Need a Criminal Lawyer

  • Knowledge of State Laws – When facing criminal charges, every defendant needs an experienced criminal lawyer on their side—someone who has extensive knowledge of Pennsylvania law, as well as the local laws of Montgomery, Chester and Berks county. A criminal lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the legal process will understand your charges and build a strong defense.
  • Negotiations – If you enter a plea agreement, your criminal lawyer can negotiate with the prosecution, so that you get the best possible deal. 
  • Expungement – In some situations, you may be eligible for expungement, which is when an arrest or conviction is erased from your record. A criminal lawyer can help you navigate this complicated, long process.
  • Motor vehicle violations – Even if you haven’t been arrested, that doesn’t mean you don’t need a criminal lawyer. Many people who have committed motor vehicle violations don’t realize that having a criminal lawyer by their side can help them avoid more serious penalties. Those who choose to move forward without the guidance of a lawyer could face fines, points on their driving record, or have their license suspended.
  • Drug possession – If you have been arrested on drug charges, you need a lawyer. A drug conviction could cost you thousands of dollars in fines and send you to jail, so it’s important to find a knowledgeable criminal lawyer. Our attorneys have years of experience defending individuals in the Montgomery, Chester and Berks County areas.
  • DUI arrest – A DUI conviction can result in severe penalties—especially for repeat offenders. The skilled criminal lawyers at OWM Law have a deep understanding of Pennsylvania DUI laws and can help guide you to the best possible outcome. View our DUI page for more information.
