PFA Dismissed Following Hearing in Reading, PA

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013

Attorney Dan Nevins won the dismissal of a Protection from Abuse Order yesterday for a client in the Berks County Court of Common Pleas. The client had been accused of engaging in a fight with his brother, with whom he resided in northern Berks County. The brother was seeking the eviction of the client from the residence and seemed to be using the PFA system to effectuate his goals.

Attorney Nevins showed the Court through cross examination that the Plaintiff was not in fear of the client and, indeed, continued to reside with him for one month following the alleged incident. In the end the Judge ruled that there was not sufficient grounds for the issuance of a PFA.

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client in Berks County District Court who was facing jail time for driving on a suspended license under 75 Pa.C.S.A. 1543(a). Our client was facing a maximum of six (6) months in jail on this offense. He was a working full-time to help support his wife and kids.

Attorney McAllister met with the officer prior the hearing, and, based on negotiations, was able to work out an agreement with the officer to avoid any type of jail sentence.

Our client was very happy with the outcome of the case since he ended up not having to do any jail time. As a result, our client was able to keep his job and continue to support his family.
