Defense Defined By You

When you face any criminal charge, you want to know that your lawyer is both experienced and aggressive in defending you. Having the benefit of a lawyer who has a personal stake in you and your freedom is an incredible relief. Ryan R. Smith Law Offices makes a commitment to fighting for each of our clients. We take the time to get to know you and what matters to you.

Our commitment to defending our clients can best be demonstrated by how we get to know those we work with. We want to know who we are fighting for so we can best protect their highest priorities: their freedom and their future.

The Right Defense For You

When you choose Ryan R. Smith Law Offices, our first priority is crafting the right criminal defense strategy for you. We will have a conversation built around educating you on two important factors around your charges:

  • Defensibility: Some charges are eminently more defensible than others depending on their circumstances and the specifics of Pennsylvania law.
  • Your goals: Your perspective is vital to building your defense plan. If you are worried about the length of trial or the possible sentencing, we can work with you to find the best way forward.

When we have discussed your charge's defensibility, and how that affects your goals we move on to considering specific strategies that may include:

  • Keeping cases at the district level
  • Working out alternative sentencing
  • Summary dismissals

Criminal charges may also be expunged after a certain amount of time has passed. Knowing your rights as the accused is an important aspect to pursuing your goals.
