Why Choose MCR

  • We are ready for trial. We have spent years in the courtroom fighting tough battles.
  • We know the rules about arrests, searches, and seizures. We will recognize tainted evidence and cases.
  • We know alternatives to jail time and the people who run those programs in Berks County and beyond.
  • We understand the consequences of conviction. Count on us to counsel you about the effect that a criminal record can have on your future.
  • We pay attention at every step. From preliminary arraignment through disposition, we will work to protect your rights and keep your life on track.
  • We keep fighting and are prepared to appeal. Convictions are devastating, but they are not always the last word in a criminal matter. If your case or trial was handled by another lawyer, we will do a thorough review of the evidence and proceedings to look for a way to change the outcome. Our lawyers include appellate advocates who can look at the record in a criminal case and identify issues to be challenged in a higher court.

 

Maybe most importantly of all—we treat our clients with respect. Criminal cases are hard on individuals and their families. We understand that when you choose a lawyer, you are also choosing an advisor to help you through a crisis. MCR is committed to the best outcome for your case and the best experience for you. We will listen to you; respect the value of your time; and help you to make choices that serve your interests now and in the future.
