Criminal Offense Attorney

Being arrested and charged with a crime can be a traumatic and humiliating experience for you and your family, especially if you were wrongly accused. Law Offices of Peter L. Johnston, L.L.C. handle a wide range of criminal offenses ranging from assault cases, theft matters, fraud matters, drug crimes (simple possession of a small amount of drugs for personal use or possession with the intent to sell or distribute to others), and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Our team represents and defends clients in Philadelphia, the surrounding counties of Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks and Chester, and the State of New Jersey in both state and federal courts. They have attained acquittals for clients and negotiated favorable non-trial dispositions for others.

  • Arrested? Even if you may actually be guilty, you may not have to go to prison – especially if you are charged with a lesser offense or have few previous contacts with the criminal justice system.
  • First-time offender? You may even be eligible for programs that avoid a finding of guilt and accrual of a criminal record against you.
  • In prison on a pending criminal charge? We will visit with you to hear your story and map out a strategy.
