If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime, we here at Rehmeyer & Allatt understand that this is a scary and confusing time. Most new clients who reach out to us following an arrest, a citation or a summons to appear for a preliminary hearing are facing criminal charges for the first time.
In our experience, the unknowns are the most terrifying for our clients: What is the next step? How will this affect my future? Will I go to jail? Will I lose my license? Are they going to kick me out of school? Will I be able to get a job? And the list goes on.
At Rehmeyer & Allatt, addressing these concerns in a conscientious and personalized manner is our core value, and answering these questions and putting your mind at ease is our first order of business. The State College criminal defense attorneys at our firm can give you a very broad overview of how the process will work and what your sentencing exposure is based on the charges you are facing, and can generally describe defenses available to you in an initial meeting.
To assist in reducing the stress and uncertainty at a very difficult time, Rehmeyer & Allatt offers all prospective clients a free initial consultation either in person or by telephone. We also understand that the circumstances of each individual case require a different working approach. If you are calling on behalf of a friend or family member who is currently incarcerated, you can expect that we will immediately schedule a time to visit with them at the jail to discuss their case and how we can help.
At Rehmeyer & Allatt, our criminal defense lawyers have experience representing individuals charged with a wide variety of crimes ranging from relatively minor summary offenses such as underage drinking and disorderly conduct to major drug crimes and violent felonies. In addition, other cases include:
We also have experience representing individuals who are named as defendants in complaints under the Pennsylvania Protection From Abuse act (PFA) as well as those facing criminal charges for violating the terms of a PFA.
