Drug Delivery Resulting in Death

Drug Delivery Resulting in Death is a serious felony offense that criminalizes and punishes the sale and transfer of drugs that causes the death of another individual. The consequences of a conviction for Drug Delivery Resulting in Death are profound and catastrophic.

These cases are often complex and require experienced defense counsel with the resources and staff necessary to confront the Commonwealth’s evidence.

Heroin & Fentanyl

A conviction for heroin or fentanyl possession, regardless of the quantity, can lead to serious consequences, including incarceration. Often, these offenses occur because of addiction. We can help navigate a complex criminal justice system and advocate for results that include treatment as opposed to jail.

We believe addiction should not be criminalized and have worked with judges, district attorneys, treatment providers and other professionals to solve problems caused by many drug possession offenses.


Whether you are charged with possessing a minor amount of cocaine or charged with distribution of a large quantity, you may face prison time and other serious consequences. Even a simple cocaine possession offense may lead to up to a year in prison, if convicted.

Possession of Marijuana

Marijuana is one of the most common and widely used drugs in Pennsylvania and throughout the rest of the United States. Although Pennsylvania has adopted a Medical Marijuana law, the possession and use of marijuana remains illegal.

Individuals convicted of even minor marijuana offenses may face jail, fines, and probation. Marijuana convictions can also have long term impacts on your future.

We understand both the short term and long-term implications of marijuana offenses and will take all necessary steps to minimize or eliminate both.

Possession With Intent to Deliver (PWID)

Possession with intent to deliver or delivery of a controlled substance are the most serious drug offenses in Pennsylvania. Multiple factors will determine the seriousness of the offense, including the type of drugs (marijuana, cocaine, heroin, fentanyl, etc.).

In Pennsylvania there are serious consequences for felony drug offenses, including incarceration, forfeiture of property, fines and loss of valuable constitutional rights.  Whether negotiating a dismissal of charges by agreement, litigating suppression issues or defending the case at trial, we have all the tools necessary to defend any Possession With Intent to Deliver offense.
