For a Criminal Defense case, I understand that your law firm is possibly able to help me get out ahead of any potential charges. What does that process look like?

You have the right to an attorney even before charges are brought against you. Often times, an experienced criminal defense attorney can contact the police and interview potential witnesses before charges are even filed. Attorney Justin P. Miller has the contacts and abilities necessary to help you get out ahead of any potential charges and, if you are eventually charged, to defend you in court.

Why should I talk to a lawyer if I become subject to a civil action called a Protection From Abuse Order, known as a "PFA"?

This order, while technically a civil matter, can restrict your liberty, your freedom to travel, and your right to possess or purchase firearms. Before you gamble with your freedom, you should talk to an experienced domestic violence defense attorney.

What kind of criminal cases do you defend?

  • Assault and domestic violence
  • PFAs
  • Drug offenses
  • DUI defense
  • Sexual assault
  • Theft and receiving stolen property
  • Juvenile offenses and student discipline
  • Criminal conviction appeals
  • Summary and traffic offenses
  • Penn State student discipline

What are my options when resolving a criminal defense case?

Depending on the specific facts of your case, you can show that these facts won't lead to a conviction, attack the evidence directly by challenging illegal searches or questioning, and negotiating with the Commonwealth to reduce the charges through a Plea Bargain. Ultimately, if all of these approaches prove fruitless, you can take your case to trial before a jury, where twelve of your peers are asked to vindicate you.

  • adoption
  • divorce
