Philadelphia Criminal Defense Lawyer

Philadelphia Criminal Defense Attorney

Lawyers Committed to Criminal Defense at Competitive Rates

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Mark D. Copoulos in Philadelphia specialize in criminal defense and are committed to protecting your rights no matter what charges you are facing. Our lawyers know the field of criminal defense representation has changed in the last twenty (20) years. Hundreds, if not thousands, of defendants are being admitted into rehabilitative programs that did not exist before the turn of this century. Navigating these programs, and successfully enrolling clients into them, is a new function of the criminal lawyer. However, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The primary function of a good criminal lawyer is to challenge the states evidence against the accused. This means your attorney must have the ability to analyze the case, and take your matter to trial to defend you against false allegations.

If your attorney is not trial ready, you will undoubtedly suffer for being unable to defend yourself against a state with vast resources to use in proving your guilt. When you or a loved one is arrested, you need someone who knows the legal system in Philadelphia. You want personalized and individualized attention. You want a private attorney who is going to defend and protect your rights, not a public defender with forty to fifty cases on any given day. You want a lawyer who is going to fight your case, not a defender or appointed counsel who is going to take the first deal.

At the Law Office of Mark D. Copoulos, we understand that results matter. Our firm motto, borrowed from the legendary Packers coach Vince Lombardi, best summarizes our philosophy towards criminal defense: “Winning is not everything. Winning is the only thing.”
