Being arrested can be a stressful and confusing situation. The good news is that you have made the smart decision to think about retaining a criminal defense attorney. When facing criminal charges, it is important to hire a Philadelphia criminal defense lawyer who understands how the Philadelphia court system operates. 

I understand what you are up against. I am here to explain your charges and defenses.

Lauren Wimmer has been recognized as one of the top Philadelphia criminal defense lawyers in the region. Let Wimmer Criminal Defense Law fight for you.

Before you can ever be convicted of a crime, the burden is on the government to definitively prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that you committed that crime and that there is enough evidence to prove each element of the crime. 

I Have a Record of Success Defending Against All Levels of Criminal Charges

Whether you are fighting felony, misdemeanor, or summary offenses, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney by your side to protect your rights. 

Years of experience within the criminal court system have prepared me to handle all types of cases. When police make bad arrests, seize evidence without a warrant, or exaggerate details, I will fight them every step of the way. I will work to get your charges dismissed or reduced at the preliminary hearing, block evidence at suppression hearings, keep you free on bail or, if necessary, beat your case at trial. I am in your corner every step of the way.

Hiring the right criminal defense attorney can make or break your future. The penalties that result from a criminal conviction can include years in county or state prison, lengthy periods of probation, restitution, and fines. 

At Wimmer Criminal Defense Law, we are prepared to handle your criminal matter from start to finish. If you are under police investigation, have already been arrested, or simply looking to hire an attorney who will actually fight for you, we’re here to listen.

Rely on My Experience Navigating the Philadelphia Criminal Court System

I am a former Judicial Clerk in the Criminal Trial Division of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas where I worked on murder cases. Years of experience working in the criminal justice system have allowed me to understand the tactics police and prosecutors use and how to take their cases apart.

Even if You Have Already Been Convicted

If you or a family member has already been convicted, I can still help fight their case on appeal. Pennsylvania’s criminal laws are full of opportunities to appeal a conviction.

No matter what stage of arrest, trial, or sentencing you’re facing, it’s not too late to hire an attorney who you can trust to be on your side. I personally meet with each client and will handle your case myself.

I Fight Every Step in the Criminal Proceeding Process for You

Getting an attorney involved as early as possible in your criminal case is in your best interest. This will allow me to gather information from police, prosecutors, and witnesses to find out what evidence is being pursued or missing. In many cases, we can come to an arrangement without having to go to trial. In others, I can start building a defense strategy to fight the charges head-on. Sometimes there are problems with police evidence and I may be able to get your charges dropped. Police cannot bring charges, arrest you, or seize evidence without “probable cause.” Getting an experienced Philadelphia criminal defense attorney on your side early in the case means fighting the arrest and evidence from the start.
