Fighting To Protect Your Freedom And Future

If you face criminal charges or believe you are the target of an investigation, you are in critical need of a defense lawyer who will protect your rights, protect your record and guide you through the criminal justice system to mitigate the damage. You should seek qualified, proven legal counsel before making any statements to police or prosecutors.

At the Quinn Law Firm of Erie, Pennsylvania, experienced criminal defense attorneys are ready to offer dedicated counsel and representation. While we cannot guarantee a specific outcome, we have a strong record at trial and in negotiations with prosecutors. For example, our DUI clients often dispose of their charges quickly and without a trial by way of an accelerated rehabilitative disposition (ARD).

All Felonies And Misdemeanors Are Serious

We provide representation to people throughout northwest Pennsylvania facing any type of criminal charge, whether federal or state, misdemeanor or felony. Any arrest or conviction has the potential to seriously harm your future. Reach out today if you are facing charges such as:

  • Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, murder, assault or other violent crimes
  • Drug charges (including, possession, distribution and trafficking)
  • Sex crimes involving adults or minors
  • Arson
  • Fraud, identity theft, tax evasion, embezzlement or other white collar crimes
  • Disorderly conduct
  • DUI, reckless driving and other traffic violations
  • Juvenile offenses such as underage drinking
  • Criminal environmental investigations and prosecutions

No matter how “minor” you think the matter is, you should always talk with an attorney before pleading guilty in an attempt to “put it behind you.” A conviction on a lesser charge that stays on your record could still make it hard to find a job or housing. Our lawyers will carefully investigate your case to determine the best course of action that protects your interests. Sometimes, you may not realize that there is a viable defense to a charge that could lead to a dismissal.

When Your Liberty Is At Stake, Aggressively Protect Your Rights!

After an arrest, don’t give police a chance to build a case without a lawyer in your corner building a defense. Contact the Quinn Law Firm as early as possible, either online or by calling our office in Erie at 814-806-2518 to schedule a consultation.
