When You Face A Serious Criminal Charge, You Need A Highly Experience Lawyer

When people in southeastern Pennsylvania face criminal charges, they look for a criminal defense lawyer with extensive trial experience and knowledge of the local courts. They come to the law office of Theodore Swan.

I am criminal defense lawyer Theodore H. Swan, Jr. I have been working in criminal courts in Bucks County and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, for more than 40 years, first as an assistant district attorney, and since 1977 as a criminal defense lawyer. Those years of experience, my understanding of how the prosecution handles a case, and my ability to analyze and develop a strong defense gives my clients confidence that they are getting quality legal representation.

I represent adults and juveniles against a wide range of charges:

  • Drunk driving
  • Traffic violations
  • Drug crimes
  • Theft
  • Juvenile offenses
  • Assault

Is This Your First Offense? You May Be Eligible For A Second Chance.

If you are a first time offender, you may qualify for Pennsylvania's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program (probation without verdict) or a Section 17 disposition for certain drug offenses. ARD is available to people who have committed certain nonviolent crimes (particularly DUI or retail theft).

If you are accepted by the local district attorney, you will be placed on probation. If you satisfactorily complete probation, (including fines or community service if that is required) and you do not get arrested again, the charges are dismissed automatically or can be dismissed with a petition. As your criminal defense lawyer, I will review this and other options with you.
