When selecting which attorney to hire, please consider:

  • Can you call anytime and talk to a live person?
  • Do they offer payment plans with no credit checks?
  • Will your attorney be attentive and explain what’s going on?

At The McShane Firm, we answer yes to all of these questions. We strive to provide you with a great customer service experience during this tough time.

So much on the line with Assault Charges

It’s not like back 20 or so years ago when The McShane Firm first started. Times are tough. The internet is everywhere. You can do a simple internet search to see if anyone in PA has a criminal record: UJS public search. Employers don’t care about why you have a record, they just see that you have a record and in particular a violent one. Then, they shut the door on you. And if you want to travel outside of the US with a crime of violence on your record? Good luck. So the most important decision isn’t what are you going to do with these assault charges, but instead what are you going to do to protect yourself from a lifetime of having to deal with assault charge convictions on your record?

Why self-defense exists

Self-defense exists to protect you when you need to use violence to protect yourself or others not only from actual harm but from reasonable anticipated imminent harm. It is an ancient right here to protect you even today. We specialize in teaching DAs, judges and juries what self-defense and use of force is like in the real world.

Why no one listens to you

It’s because in this day and age too many criminal defense attorneys look to plead out their cases. The presumption of innocence is forgotten by them. They accept the first offer of the DA with little effort. They just look to close the case and cash the check. We reject that. We hate it. Standing up for you and what is right is all we do. Never ever will we sell you out.

What you can do about it

You can stop accepting that you lose. Don’t give up. Let me invite you to get back in the struggle. This is your life and your future. Don’t let this ruin your life. You are a good person. Let’s work together to fix this now.
