Criminal Defense

Criminal laws can be broken into two categories: misdemeanors, which are lesser offenses, and felonies, which are much more serious. In the United States, most criminal laws are either decided at the state or the federal level, although some are also created by cities. Pennsylvania has a detailed and complex criminal code of its own.

If you are involved or think you may be implicated in a criminal matter, it is imperative that you seek skilled legal advice. Don’t enter a guilty plea before speaking to an experienced attorney.  JacksonLaw will effectively and passionately represent you in all types of cases and take exceptional care to protect your legal rights in all criminal procedures.

Many of the clients at Jackson Law are East Stroudsburg University students who have a minor run in with the law. Often times they are charged with such criminal offenses as Underage Drinking, Drunk Driving, Retail Theft, Disorderly Conduct and Drug Sales.  If you are charged with selling drugs in a school zone you could face a mandatory 2 year possibly state sentence.

While it may be convenient to simply enter a guilty plea and be done with the matter, often times that is not the correct decision. Even a minor criminal record can be a permanent criminal record that could prevent the person from obtaining a job or license years after graduation from college. At JacksonLaw we make every effort to avoid leaving a person with a permanent criminal record. In those instances where the record can not be avoided, there are steps that can be taken to lessen the impact on a person’s future.

DON’T BE TEMPTED TO ENTER A GUILTY PLEA on what may appear to be a minor criminal matter, just to get it out of the way. Make sure that you explore all options and understand what impact your decision may have on your future.
