It can't be stressed enough that anyone facing a criminal charge should contact legal assistance immediately. Law enforcement agencies work tirelessly to gain convictions and will conduct thorough investigations into the details of your case.

Contacting an attorney as soon as possible could strengthen the defense of your case, and help to defend your rights and deflect any manipulative or invasive law enforcement tactics. If you have already given a statement, it is crucial to contact us and cease further communication with law enforcement. We will devise a course of action to overcome any potentially incriminating statements you may have given.

If you've been accused of a crime in Pittsburgh or elsewhere in Pennsylvania, call us 24/7 for a FREE consultation at 412-267-7962, or email The Law Offices of David S. Shrager today. From the moment you meet our firm, you'll know that you are in good hands.
