Legal Help You Can Rely On When Facing Pennsylvania Criminal Charges

Getting arrested and charged with a crime can turn your world upside down. You may feel embarrassed or ashamed and are likely worried about your future. Thankfully, you don’t have to face these difficulties alone. Instead, contact Sinatra & Istik Law Office, PLLC, in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania.

Our experienced and caring attorneys provide the legal and personal support you need with no judgment or scare tactics. Their goal is to help calm your fears, pursue the best available resolution to your charges and minimize the disruptions to your life.

On Your Side From The Very Beginning Of Your Case

With more than 35 years of combined experience, attorneys Istik and Sinatra have defended clients against a wide range of criminal charges and infractions, including:

  • Drunk driving (DUI)
  • Drug crimes (including possession, intent to distribute and manufacturing)
  • Fraud, embezzlement and other white collar crimes
  • Assault
  • Domestic abuse
  • Sex offenses
  • Shoplifting and theft offenses
  • Traffic violations
  • Juvenile offenses
  • Underage drinking and other common college student crimes

Contacting an attorney at the first sign of trouble is a good idea. Too often, people try to explain their way out of criminal charges, which could actually make things worse. Having a defense attorney by your side before submitting to a police interrogation will ensure that your rights are protected.

You May Have More Legal Options Than You Think

Many television shows and movies suggest that criminal cases either go to trial or defendants offer unqualified guilty pleas. In reality, most cases don’t follow either path. Our attorneys often help clients by:

  • Arguing to have charges dismissed or greatly reduced
  • Helping clients apply for pretrial intervention programs, including Pennsylvania’s Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition
  • Negotiating a plea deal that is far more favorable than the one initially offered by prosecutors

There are situations in which going to trial provides the best chance for the desired outcome. In those cases, Ms. Sinatra and Ms. Istik will use their considerable courtroom experience to prepare a strong defense strategy. Before you decide on any course of action, however, you should at least learn about your options by contacting our firm.
