Let Our Experience and Reputation Work for You

Over the years, our criminal defense lawyers have successfully represented thousands of individuals throughout Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania charged with crimes ranging from summary offenses to major felonies. Our success has earned us a reputation that is recognized by judges and district attorneys throughout Pennsylvania. With a former federal prosecutor and a Super Lawyer® on your side, when you hire the Shrager defense team, you are sending a clear message that your freedom will not be taken from you.

We understand that being accused of a crime is one of the most serious and frightening experiences anyone can face. For this reason, we devote all of our experience and influence so that our clients' cases are resolved favorably and as efficiently as possible so they can move on with their lives. Quite often, prosecutors are willing to dismiss or reduce charges against our clients rather than challenge tough litigators who fight aggressively and intelligently at trial. Otherwise, we are always fully prepared to offer a defense at trial that is unmatched and unexpected by prosecutors.

When you work with our firm, you will never be treated as "just another case," and you will never be pressured into unfair settlements or plea agreements. Our firm is dedicated to helping each of our clients and we will fight until we get the best possible results. We also make certain that we are easily accessible and available for our clients, no matter what. When you have questions or concerns, we address them immediately.

Whether you are facing violent crime charges or allegations of internet crimes or are in need of legal representation to defend your child against juvenile crime charges, our criminal lawyers have your back. Our firm also actively defends summary charges and traffic violations and we can work vigorously to reduce any consequences you may be facing. If you are facing any of the following charges or any type of criminal offense, our firm will help you:

Criminal defense strategies vary greatly depending on the circumstances involved. Defending white collar crimes, and domestic violence charges can require the use of technical knowledge from a variety of legal areas. In order to provide you with the best defense, our attorneys routinely pool our efforts, experience and dedication to analyze cases and develop a strong defense plan that is tailored to your specific needs. Our firm is also prepared to help you through the expungement process as a means to seal records of past criminal convictions.

It can't be stressed enough that anyone facing a criminal charge should contact legal aid immediately. Law enforcement agencies work tirelessly to gain criminal convictions and will conduct thorough investigations throughout the legal process.

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 immediately 24/7 for a free consultation at 412-267-7962, or email The Law Offices of David S. Shrager today.
