Strong Defense Against Serious Criminal Charges

No matter the crime, everyone is entitled to a proper legal defense. Whether it is a DUI, felony charges, drug violations or a traffic violation, we believe that everyone is entitled to a fair trial the follows the rules of the law. Due process means that your rights are protected regardless of the final outcome in court or in negotiation.

Located in Red Lion, Eveler & DeArment Law Offices' criminal defense work is led by Jonelle Harter Eshbach. Ms. Eshbach, a former first deputy district attorney of York County, has 25 years' experience in all types of criminal law. That wealth of courtroom experience as a prosecutor makes her a formidable litigator who knows the law and the processes for arresting suspects and defending clients against charges here in Pennsylvania.

Types Of Charges We Defend

Ms. Eshbach and our entire legal team have handled hundreds of cases. Those they regularly see include:

  • Criminal DUI: This can involve serious fines and time in jail.
  • Drug crimes: These charges are serious and can be felonies if you are charged with trafficking narcotics and other mitigating factors.
  • Felonies and misdemeanors: These charges can affect your ability to get a job, go to school and maintain professional accreditation.
  • Traffic violations summary offenses: These lesser charges can still add up to major fines and stiffer penalties if you face similar charges at a later date.
  • Post-conviction appeals: Sometimes an attorney or judge does not get it right. We can guide our clients through the appeals process in an attempt to overturn a conviction.
  • Civil protection from abuse: Unfortunately, sometimes protection orders are necessary to keep victims safe.
  • Indirect criminal contempt: This civil charge often involves a violation of a court order.
  • Juvenile delinquency: This generally involves habitual illegal activity by someone under 18.

The Best Defense Starts With You

The biggest mistake people facing charges can make is not taking a proactive approach to defending themselves. Hiring an attorney as soon as possible can help build a strong case in your favor. This includes finding witnesses, getting statements from those involved and studying the circumstances of the charges in case law enforcement officers missed an important detail. Because charges escalate for repeat offenders, it is always best to mount a defense to try to get charges reduced or dismissed.
