Simple Assault, Public Drunkeness, Disorderly Conduct charges dismissed in Berks County, PA

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

Today I represented a client charged with Simple Assault and related offenses for an alleged incident occurring in Berks County, PA. The case had made it to the Court of Common Pleas level and was set for disposition. My client was otherwise eligible for ARD, but we hoped for an even better result.

I filed an Omnibus Pretrial motion and the matter was set for a hearing. Our position was that the Commonwealth could not establish each of the elements of the offenses. In the end the Judge agreed to dismiss each of the charges and my client walked out of court a free man.

Attorney teaches Legal Ethics Seminar for New Berks County Lawyers

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Today I (attorney Dan Nevins) had the privilege of serving as the moderator for the mandatory CLE “Bridge the Gap.” The program is required for newly minted lawyers by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court within the first two years of Bar admission. The program is offered in various locations throughout the Commonwealth and once a year at the Berks County Bar Association building in Reading, PA. This was my third year leading the discussion. The program is meant to educate young attorneys on the practical and ethical aspects of law practice including adherence to the Rules of Professional Conduct and the Code of Civility that we are bound to as Attorneys. Today I enjoyed a leading a group of mostly new lawyers through an interesting and educational program that, I hope, continues to benefit the Profession and especially the local Bar.

Berks County Attorneys Annual Softball Game

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Yesterday afternoon I, along with Attorney Ryan McAllister and our law clerk, Joe Blackburn participated in the annul Berks County Bar Association Softball Game.   Despite the blistering temperatures it was a great chance to socialize with other Berks County Lawyers and Judges.  The team featuring the Young Attorneys prevailed in the end capturing the newly dubbed “President Judge’s Cup.”   But the biggest victory of all was that no one was seriously injured! 

Local news channel WFMZ was on hand to capture the action.  Here’s the link  http://wfmz.img.entriq.net/htm/PopUpPlayer-v4.htm?articleID=1424171&v=b
