Types of Assault charges and self-defense
Lot so people have a misperception of what self-defense is in PA. They think of it like “school house rules” where you have to wait for the attacker to attack before you can respond. Not true. Not true at all. The final confirmation of an attack is the attack. In the real world, folks don’t fight fair. They look to attack when the situation is most favorable to them and least favorable for you. Therefore, your best friend is situational awareness. Under conditions of hyper-vigilence rarely is there time to think. You think. You die. That’s the real world. So action is demanded.
In the real world there are no time outs, no weight classes, no rules, no refs, and no tapping out. In the real world, you never know the level of violence that the other person is prepared to use.
Yet, prosecutors all over PA don’t have a clue. In their pampered lives, harsh language and a push might be the highest form of violence they have ever experienced. We know violence. We like violence. Communicating to judges and juries and DAs about the real world of endless violence is what we do well.

Attorney Eric G., San Diego CA
Justin has been, and continues to be a role model for myself, and for many other attorneys across the world. His command on science is unreal. But he also possesses a special talent: he can take huge complex issues, and break them down so they can be understood by everyone. His personality shines as a teacher/professor, and his drive really inspires everyone around him to push themselves to greatness. His approach is one of honesty; objective honesty. And that’s exactly what we need to keep in the Courts across this nation.
Professional, Reliable, and Trustworthy
I reached out to a few different firms after receiving my court details in the mail, but I quickly realized that the McShane firm felt the most consistent and genuinely interested in my case. They’re very passionate about getting you the best results, and communication with attorney Corey Fahnestock was quick and easy. Both attorney Corey Fahnestock and Cassandra Frantz were very helpful and informative as they were consistently updating me whenever a delay or change in terms would occur. Worth every dollar! I highly recommend Corey Fahnestock for anyone serious about seeking true justice!
Saved my Life
Tim was able to do what seemed to be impossible! My case was dismissed at trial and I was able to go back to my life. Don’t hesitate to retain Tim as your attorney, he is worth every penny. I couldn’t be any happier with my experience.
My attorney Timothy Barrouk did a wonderful job by getting my charges dismissed. He was helpful the whole time and I could call him whenever I had any sort of questions.

I cannot thank them enough for the outcome of my case. Attorney Tim Barrouk was dealing with a client who was on edge, never been arrested, and didn’t trust him 100% in the beginning, but he came recommended so he was my lawyer. I remember offering to hire a second attorney to help and he reassured me he had it under control. After a while it appeared I made a great choice. He knew the pros & cons of every judge my case was assigned to, he knew when to talk and when to listen in court, he didn’t let me take a bad deal, never pressured me, and responded to every text or call I ever placed to him. Cathi Lee kept me updated on where to be and when to be there. and was always available also. I was facing an Aggravated Assault charge causing serious bodily injury, simple assault, unlawful restraint, and 4 other misdemeanor charges and facing up to 10+ years in state prison. I never denied what I did and there was even video of me doing it. At the end of the day, All my charges were dropped and replaced with one summary offense of disorderly conduct and I was sentenced to pay a $25 fine plus court costs. Tim was always honest, and even told me flat out, these charges fit what you did but your case is triable and we’re gonna work for the best outcome. There were no promises or bs, just facts and business. Thank you Tim and the rest of The McShane Firm for getting me justice and not letting me get lost in the system.
