Pennsylvania and New Jersey Criminal Law Attorneys

Being arrested for a criminal offense has severe legal, financial, and emotional consequences for the individual charged with the crime, as well as his or her family. With many years of experience representing the interests of individuals involved in criminal cases, we understand these consequences. If you have been accused of a crime, or have learned that there is a pending investigation, it is critical to contact O’Brien, Belland & Bushinsky, LLC as soon as possible. We will advocate zealously on your behalf, bringing energy, skill, and knowledge to your defense strategy.

An experienced criminal attorney plays a critical role in getting the best possible outcome for an individual charged with a crime. It is important to have an attorney with the skills and background to mount a comprehensive and detailed defense; however, the criminal defense attorney also must understand how the prosecution intends to present the case in order to counter the evidence being presented. Having experts such as investigators or reconstruction specialists means that the defense attorney can independently investigate the evidence being used to support the charges and can discover flaws in the prosecution’s case.

A complete dismissal of the charges is possible under certain circumstances. If this cannot be done, based on the facts of the case, then a reduction in charges and a decrease in penalties may be negotiated.

It is important for anyone who has been arrested for a criminal offense to refrain from talking to the police or any authorities without a criminal attorney. It is crucial to assert your right to remain silent and wait for counsel to arrive.
