A Variety Of Criminal Charges
I am Robert S. Muir, and I have been a criminal defense attorney in western Pennsylvania since 1991. My experience is varied, and I have tried all kinds of criminal cases over my career. I began focusing on cases involving college students because I know being charged with a crime can be confusing and scary for a young person. I now represent all kinds of people who are facing criminal charges. I want to help.
Even in cases that seem simple, like underage drinking or having a fake ID, it is important to contact a lawyer who will defend your rights.
Some of the common cases I work on include:
- Drug and alcohol offenses
- Theft offenses
- Traffic violations
- Expungements of criminal records
If you find yourself charged with a crime, or wish to clean up your criminal history, contact me as soon as possible. My consultations are free, and it is important you don’t try to go through the criminal process before seeking legal advice.
You have worked hard to turn your life around after you were arrested, but a criminal record can follow you for years. Getting your record in Pennsylvania expunged is possible, but almost impossible to accomplish on your own.
I have helped hundreds of clients with criminal expungements. Expunging your criminal history can help you get a job, rent an apartment, successfully apply for a loan and more. As your attorney, I will work hard to give you the power to put the past behind you.
College can be one of the most exciting times of your life. It can also be a time that leads to questionable decisions. In some cases, those decisions can lead to criminal action. Many students don’t know how the laws affect them in the short and long term, especially if they are coming to school from a different state with different laws. Even if your permanent residence is in another state, you are still beholden to Pennsylvania laws. I help students at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and other colleges protect their reputation and dignity.
