 Lower Paxton Township criminal charges

The LP police department are highly trained and draw on county resources like the Drug Task Force of Dauphin County. Lower Paxton Township Police Department have a standard written policy to not reduce criminal charges on their own. This is why you cannot “handle” the case on your own. At every preliminary hearing for a misdemeanor or a felony, there will be a district attorney there. DAs have no incentive to deal with most attorneys. Most attorneys have a reputation for pleading out their clients and not fighting,. We fight. We go to trial. Winning is what we do.

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.

Why you need an attorney right now

These charges are not going to go away on their own. The longer you wait to address the reality, the worse it will be. You have to steel yourself that this is going to be a marathon. It’s going to be a fight. You cannot give up. If you do give up, you will absolutely earn life-long consequences that will follow you forever. But there is hope. We have a plan. Because all we do is criminal law, we have been there, done that and have the t-shirt to prove it. If you get an attorney who does anything that walks in the door or someone who also does divorce/custody or is on their own, you massively decrease your chances of winning. Fact.
