If you’ve been charged with possession, selling (PWI) or trafficking of Heroin, the stakes are high. Even the most minor drug possession conviction can result in heavy fines, jail time, and a permanent criminal record. In light of the current Opioid epidemic in Pennsylvania, Police are on high alert for heroin and are increasing enforcement and cracking down. Likewise, judges are looking to send a message that heroin dealers will be punished severely.
The government will likely try to make it look like you are a big time Kingpin. A lot of times they use the testimony of unreliable snitches who will say anything about you to save their own skin. One of our strategies is working to get the evidence suppressed by examining whether the police followed the proper procedures during their investigation. We know how to fight these cases and will work hard to protect your rights.

My son made the wrong decision by getting behind the wheel after drinking with some friends. What compounded the problem is that they were in possession of marijuana as well. He was charged with a DUI with drugs. Fortunately, I called Attorney Justin McShane. He was able to get the charged reduced to a reckless driving charge which was a great outcome. Thanks Justin for all your hard work.
Unfortunately, my daughter has a drug problem. We have been struggling with it for years in the family. She was caught by the police and sold to an undercover. Justin made it get through ARD so she would have no felony on her record and is now a college student and has a bright future. We cannot believe how great he is.
Justin McShane and his entire staff treated me and my case both professionally and personally. All of my calls and emails were answered quickly and the outcome of my case was positive. I will recommend The McShane Firm for any case.
My son was arrested on drug and possession charges. Justin handled our case and was very professional and confident. He always communicated with us and explained the overall situation and what we were to expect. Justin got all of our charges dropped and I don’t think anyone else would have been able to do this. Justin is a good lawyer and a great person.
