Criminal Law

After your arrest, the most important thing you need to do is get on the phone with an experienced lawyer. With over 20 years of practice in criminal defense, I have been able to handle a host of criminal law matters from traffic citations to homicide matters in the Counties of Delaware, Chester, Philadelphia, Montgomery and Bucks, Pennsylvania.

If you are over the age of 18 you can be charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense.  Even if you are a juvenile, you can be charged as an adult if it is considered a serious felony charge.  As an adult you can face serious jail time and a record that will stay with you for the rest of your life!

Once you are being investigated by the police your rights are on the line.  You need an experienced attorney to meet with and discuss your rights.  It does not matter whether it is a homicide or a driving under the influence charge.  You should be aware that you have rights to protect your freedoms.  You need an experienced lawyer. With any legal matter it is imperative to know your rights and how to ensure that justice is served.  Rarely do you get a second chance at correcting a mistake in criminal law.

I was charged with a felony burglary charge and other felonies.  I was looking at 6 months in jail according to another lawyer.  I was super depressed until my grandparents hired Mr. O’Meara. When the case was done all felony charges were dropped and I pled guilty to a defiant trespass, a misdemeanor of the 3rd degree and got 1 year probation only.  - Chris

I got into an argument with my tenant and fired my pistol in their house.  Nobody was hurt but when the cops got to my house, all they said was, where’s the gun? Then they read me my rights and let me call my lawyer.   I was charged with a felony and it looked like I was going to lose my job as a union carpenter.  Steve said ‘let me do my job, I‘ll tell you when to worry.’  By the end of the case, I plead guilty to a summary offense, disorderly conduct and all the other charges were dropped.  - Brian

I was accused of beating up this girl that used to date my boyfriend.  No matter who I talked to they all said that I would get simple assault and no ARD probation.  Mr. O’Meara got involved and after a hearing all charges were dropped except the summary offense DC with no probation and I did not have to pay any restitution.
