Tough Criminal Defense Lawyers Stand Up For Those In The Greater Pittsburgh Area

Keeping You Or Your Family Member Out Of Jail

When you are arrested for a crime, one of the first things you wonder is “What am I looking at?” The answers depend partially on whether you use an experienced attorney. Bowers Fawcett & Hurst, LLC, has defended people accused of all types of crimes in Aliquippa and Beaver County for more than 40 years.

Individualized Strategies For Any Charges

Whether this is your first arrest or you have a long record, we know that your goal is to stay out of prison and keep this charge off your record. Our lawyers have experience in negotiating pleas and going trial. We represent persons charged with felonies or misdemeanors. These are some of the most common charges:

  • DUI. In Pennsylvania, it is against the law to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or above. A DUI conviction can have long-term consequences, including the loss of your driver’s license. We work to minimize the consequences, and to prevent a conviction from having a long-term effect on your life.
  • Drug crimes. Drug charges vary widely, from possession, manufacturing, possession with intent to deliver and delivery of a controlled substance.
  • Assault and indecent assault. If you are accused of a violent crime like assault or indecent assault, a legal representation is important. We will defend you if you are accused of any violent crimes, including rape, battery or assault.
  • Traffic violations and license suspensions. Texting while driving, driving with a suspended license or any number of traffic violations can affect your license and have a major impact on your everyday life. Saving your driver’s license may be crucial for saving your job.
  • Theft and burglary. Charges from theft or burglary come with serious consequences that can result in jail time. You need an attorney to protect your rights.
  • Sex crimes. Sex crimes often carry the most serious penalties, including jail time and the necessity to register as a sex offender for anywhere from 10 years to life.

We defend all clients the same regardless of the severity of the charges. No matter what the accusation, with Bowers Fawcett & Hurst, LLC, you get a law firm with decades of experience defending those accused of criminal offenses.
