PFA Dropped Against Client

Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client who had been served with Protection From Abuse (PFA) papers by the mother of his child. After meeting with the client and his family, it was clear to Attorney McAllister that the allegations contained in the PFA were completely baseless and bogus. Nevertheless, the temporary PFA, which had been granted by the Court without our client having a chance to respond, prohibited our client from having ANY contact with his own child.

Client Not Guilty in School Bus Case

attarney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client who was charged with the traffic offense of "Overtaking a School Bus" under 75 Pa.C.S.A. 3345(a). Our client initially plead guilty to this offense prior to retainer the services of attarney McAllister. However, shortly after our client plead guilty, he got notification from PennDOT that his driver's license was going to be suspended for a period of sixty (60) days. Our client did a lot of driving as part of his job, and a sixty (60) day license suspension would have most certainly cost him his job. 

Client Avoids State Prison, gets 1 Year Probation

I recently represented a client who was originally charged with a number of offenses including Felony Recieving Stolen Property, Unauthorized Use of an Automobile, Simple Assault and Reckless Endangerment. The allegations involved a domestic altercation in a vehicle and a subsequent alleged theft of the vehicle by my client.

Felony Forgery Charges Withdrawn in Berks County Case

I recently filed a "Rule 600 motion" for a client charged with forgery and related offenses in Berks County, PA. Rule 600 of the Pennsylvania Rules of Criminal Procedure addresses the Right that Individuals have to a Speedy Trial. Generally, the Commonwealth has 6 months to bring an incarcerated Defendant to trial and 12 months for a Defendant out on Bail. Of course, under certain circumstances the accrual of this time is placed on hold or waived if the Defendant or his attarney is a cause of the delay. 

Not Guilty Verdict in Summary Harassment Case

Today I won a Not Guilty verdict for a client charged with the summary offense of Harassment. My client, a mental health care giver, had been accused of striking and pushing a consumer of her agency. After a finding of guilt at the District Court level we filed a summary appeal to the Court of Common Pleas for a trial de novo. 

Client Avoids 6 Month License Suspension in Reckless Driving Case
