At the Andrew F. Schneider Attorney at Law office, we provide you the assistance when you need it the most. I, along with my office staff, handle criminal defense matters ranging from minor traffic matters to charges of murder. I've striven to provide the highest-quality representation for these matters since 1973. I understand the aspect of handling criminal cases in the federal and state courts of Pennsylvania.
A Lawyer Who Understands Your Personal Circumstances
I've been successful in the practice of criminal defense in large part because I care how my clients are doing. No two criminal cases are the same so I provide each matter substantial individual attention. I understand that the consequences for anyone charged with a crime are great.
Besides large fines and jail time, a criminal charge potentially could cost you your family and your home. It's therefore my practice to get to know you and provide the sort of representation you would want for a member of your own family. I put my knowledge and skills to work for you.
Background Information About Who I Am
Besides working in the criminal defense area for over 41 years (including a number of years working as a public defender), I've worked as an adjunct professor at Temple University in Philadelphia and have published a number of works regarding criminal law. Among my teachings, I've addressed the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the Bucks County Bar Association concerning ethics and various criminal defense trial techniques.
I've been selected for inclusion in Pennsylvania Super Lawyers for eight years in a row and also received the President's Award as Defender of Freedom from the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. I received an honorable discharge from the United States Army in 1975 following my service to my country. I feel particular pride in having represented and defended hundreds of individuals in criminal law cases.
If for any reason you're facing criminal charges, please contact my Doylestown office by calling 215-431-2530. My office offers free initial consultations.
