In this day and age, folks are quick with their mouths and their fists. Passion and misunderstandings can lead to violence. The police don’t care. They push to arrest. The local DAs office also looks to convict. If we are your chosen assault charges attorney in Lower Paxton Township, we won’t let their rush to judgment become your final judgement.

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?

But it gets worse, if the alleged crime involves a loved one, you can bet that with the criminal charges will come a Protection from Abuse order.

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.
We are proud to boast that we have earned over 400 client and peer reviews. No one else in PA even comes close.
Here’s just one:
Justin was extremely professional and handled my case efficiently and thoroughly. He kept me informed throughout my case as to any new or additional information that was provided to him. I am very satisfied with the preliminary hearing and would definitively recommend him to others.
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.
Justin McShane and his firm are the best in the nation. They handle and win the toughest cases on a regular basis. Justin and his wife are not only trial lawyers but they are also scientist. When a lawyer can combine this type of knowledge, tenacity and trial skills…it’s a work of art. If they will take your case, you are very lucky. When you can’t afford to lost, you call the McShane firm.
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.
