Defense Strategies Tailored to Your Needs

As experienced Reading criminal defense lawyers, we know that every case is different, even if the charges are the same. Before we begin our defense, we will sit down with you and make sure we understand what happened.

What About First-Time Offenders?

If you are a first-time offender, we may be able to keep you out of jail by helping you enroll in Pennsylvania's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. Most people facing misdemeanor charges are eligible for ARD. First-time DUI offenders are also eligible in most cases. We will be there for you from the beginning of the program to the end in an effort to help you complete it successfully.

What About Illegal Search & Seizure?

In many cases, a large part of a sound defense strategy is to examine the circumstances surrounding the arrest, looking for evidence that the arresting officers failed to follow the law. In many drug cases, for example, police must have a warrant before searching your home, car, computer or phone. If there is no warrant, evidence against you may be thrown out.

Motions to Suppress

If there is evidence that came from an illegal search and seizure or any other illegal method, we thoroughly understand the motion process and will work to have such evidence suppressed or thrown out. Not all illegally obtained evidence can be suppressed, and we will explain the limits of this option to you clearly.

Affordable Flat Fees

Emkey Law Firm offers flat fees, instead of the traditional hourly billing, so you never have to worry about paying more when you call us with a question or concern. There are no hidden charges, and you will know what your legal fees will cost up front.
