Scranton Criminal Defense Lawyer

Accomplished Northeastern Pennsylvania Lawyer Protects Clients’ Rights

There is no substitute for experience. At my Scranton law firm, Ernest D. Preate, Jr. Esquire, I draw on the knowledge gained over five decades to give my clients throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania an advantage in criminal defense, personal injury and divorce matters. As a former attorney general of Pennsylvania, district attorney of Lackawanna County, and gubernatorial candidate, I have an extensive knowledge of the law and the practical steps necessary to obtain a positive result. In most legal cases, you have only one chance to protect your rights, so you deserve a Scranton criminal defense lawyer with a proven track record who has succeeded at the highest professional level.

Established Scranton lawyer handles criminal defense, injury and divorce cases

My firm represents Pennsylvania clients in several practice areas, including:

  • Criminal defense — In criminal defense litigation, my background as both a county prosecutor and a defense attorney gives clients a distinct advantage no matter what charges they face.
  • Personal injury — If you have been hurt due to someone else’s negligence or intentional misconduct, I can initiate a personal injury action to recover compensation for damages such as medical costs and lost wages.
  • Divorce — Ending a marriage is never easy, but my firm delivers effective divorce advocacy so that you can establish fair terms for issues such as child custody and property division.

From my three-year tour of duty as a Marine in Vietnam through the legal battles I wage on behalf on my clients today, I am committed to making every possible effort to secure a successful outcome for those I serve.
