Criminal Defense Attorney in Eastern Pennsylvania

Misdemeanors and Felonies | Summary Offenses | Theft Crimes | DUI/DWI
Drug Possession | Traffic Violations

If you are under investigation for, or have been charged with a crime, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your constitutional rights. The criminal justice system can be confusing and intimidating, particularly if it’s your first time there. Much of the language used by prosecutors can seem foreign, and the rules seem weighted against you. I can help.

At the law office of Kenneth S. Medzie, in Ridley Park, I have fought for the rights of people in eastern Pennsylvania for more than four decades. I also spent 8 years as an assistant professor of law at the University of Bridgeport, and served as a visiting scholar at Yale Law School in 1985. I emphasize customer service and personal attention, always taking the time to learn the detail of your case, as well as your goals and objectives. I pride myself for taking an aggressive and creative approach for my clients, while always paying close attention to your budget.

At my office, every client receives a free initial consultation. For an appointment, contact me online or call my office at 610-521-4300 (or my cell phone at 484-885-5797).

My Criminal Defense Practice

I zealously advocate for people who face criminal charges, leaving no stone unturned in my efforts to obtain acquittal or a reduction of the charges against you. I handle the defense of most types of misdemeanors and felonies, including:

  • DUI and drunk driving offenses, from the administrative proceeding regarding the suspension or revocation of your license to the criminal hearing to determine penalties
  • Unlawful possession of controlled substances, such as marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines, heroin or even prescription drugs
  • Theft crimes, from robbery and burglary to shoplifting or receiving stolen goods
  • Assault, including domestic abuse
  • Traffic violations, from speeding and reckless driving to failure to obey traffic signals
  • Summary offenses (any offense initially heard and decided by a district justice), such as disorderly conduct, underage drinking, harassment, criminal mischief and first offense shoplifting

I will fully investigate the facts and circumstances of your arrest to ensure that there was probable cause for any search or seizure, and that you were properly notified of your rights.
