Berks County Attorney Defending Students
At Emkey Law Firm, Reading criminal defense lawyer Daniel P. Emkey defends college students who have been charged with criminal offenses. Our clients include students at institutions such as Alvernia University, Albright College, Kutztown University, Reading Area Community College (RACC) and Penn State Berks.
Former Prosecutor Who Knows the System
As a former prosecutor, lawyer Daniel P. Emkey understands that even seemingly minor charges, such as public drunkenness or drug possession, can have long term consequences for students. They may find themselves suspended or expelled from school and ineligible for certain jobs and financial aid.
If they are convicted of more serious felony crimes, they may find themselves in jail or state prison. Few parents want such outcomes for their children.
We Apply Aggressive Criminal Defense Strategies
At Emkey Law Firm, criminal defense attorney Daniel P. Emkey develops aggressive defense strategies to protect the futures of our college student clients. Our firm looks for weaknesses in the prosecution's case, filing motions to suppress evidence that was illegally obtained. We seek reduced charges and alternative penalties such as placement in an Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. In short, there are things we can do to protect a young person's future.
We have defended clients against student crimes such as:
- Drunk driving (DUI)
- Theft and shoplifting
- Underage drinking
- Credit card fraud
- Sex crimes
- Traffic violations
- Drug possession
- Possession of drug paraphernalia
- Possession with intent to deliver marijuana
We urge students who have been arrested or charged with a crime to say nothing to the police or district attorney and call a lawyer right away. You have the right to an attorney; this is the time to exercise that right and protect yourself and your future.
