Law Offices of Mark D. Copoulos

Philadelphia Criminal Defense Attorney

Mark Copoulos is ready to take your case to trial to get the best result possible.

In all criminal cases the Commonwealth must prove all elements of their case beyond a reasonable doubt. A reasonable doubt is the highest legal standard under the law. However, if you plead guilty the government does not have to prove their case.  This is one reason why its important to be ready for trial.

Mark Copoulos is an award-winning trial lawyer who has litigated thousands of criminal matters ranging from VUFA gun possession, to simple assault cases, possession with intent to deliver, to DUIs and related matters.

If you have a case that needs to be litigated before a judge or jury call Copoulos. While many lawyers settle before trial Copoulos has a readiness to try criminal cases.

Trials are zero sum games. If you win you may be released that day. If you lose you may face months, years or even decades in prison for felony offenses. With so much at stake it is critical you seek out an aggressive litigator who is unafraid to try your case.
