Murder and Death Penalty

Our law firm has defended more murder cases, including capital cases, than any other law firm in York County, and our track record is excellent in this area. In some of the cases we have handled, the juries have found our clients not guilty of some or all of the charges.

Capital cases require certification.

This process ensures a level of competency in the defense of those facing the death penalty if convicted. Our attorneys are certified to handle capital cases and have a strong reputation in Pennsylvania for the results we have achieved, including acquittals in death penalty cases.

We take a comprehensive and aggressive approach in murder and violent crimes cases. Our attorneys always remain mindful of the high stakes involved and meticulously investigate every aspect of the case. We understand that the smallest details can make the difference between an acquittal and a conviction — and we handle every case accordingly.

Our criminal defense attorneys are experienced in handling death penalty phases, murder trials and manslaughter trials, including cases involving:

  • Domestic violence
  • Voluntary and involuntary manslaughter
  • Accidental homicides
  • Appeals from criminal convictions
  • Post-Conviction Relief Act (PCRA) petitions

We take great care to protect the rights of defendants.

Whether you’re under investigation, have been arrested, or need a defense attorney for a loved one, we have the expertise, tenacity and skill to effectively manage your case. We take the time to understand every detail and fact of your case, and build your defense at every stage of the criminal process. We also work alongside families and other loved ones seeking to help protect a person who is charged with murder, even if the Commonwealth is attempting to impose the death penalty. This requires empathy as well as legal expertise. Our experience has taught us the importance of understanding — and respecting — the human side of criminal cases.
