Tenacious Lawyers Defend Those Accused of Crimes

Have you been accused of committing a crime? Don’t let the prosecution bully you. Stand up for your rights by hiring a dedicated criminal defense attorney who will represent you forcefully in the face of prosecution accusations. Phillip Weidner & Associates serves clients in criminal cases, providing aggressive representation with proven results.

Defending You Against All Charges

We are devoted to protecting our clients’ freedom. We strongly challenge prosecution efforts to prove their case and do everything in our power to avoid conviction or reduce any sentence that might be imposed. 

Our attorneys know that:

  • Witnesses may lie on the stand
  • Crime scenes can be tampered with
  • And police officers can make mistakes

 We personally speak with witnesses to ensure that they are telling the whole truth. We can examine the alleged crime scene thoroughly, searching for evidence that can help prove your innocence. We also go over police records and bring in experts to challenge the prosecution’s theories.

Nothing is more important than your freedom. If you need a criminal defense lawyer who is dedicated to your case, contact us today.

Protecting Our Clients for More Than 45 Years

Our firm represents clients in the following criminal matters:


If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to zealously defend you in court. 

Felonies are the most serious crimes — such as:

  • Murder
  • Rape
  • Armed robbery
  • Credit card fraud
  • And burglary

Felony convictions also have the most serious consequences. A person convicted of a felony is sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison and may be committed for life. 

In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including:

  • The right to vote
  • The right to travel out of the country
  • And the right to own a gun

Convicted felons also must disclose their crimes on job applications and can be deported if they are not American citizens.


Misdemeanors are crimes such as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting, and trespassing that are punishable by less than a year in prison. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and can result in a jail sentence. Ensure that you receive a fair trial by letting our attorneys represent you.


Being convicted of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated can have serious consequences, including:

  • License loss
  • Higher insurance costs
  • Heavy fines
  • And jail time

The attorneys at Phillip Weidner & Associates have the knowledge necessary to overcome the evidence against you, and the tenacity to help you attain the best possible outcome.

Drug crimes

Charges of trafficking, distributing, or possessing illegal substances or drug paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. You can rely on our knowledge of drug crimes and our history of successful results to help eliminate or minimize the charges against you.

Sexual Offenses

Rape and sexual assault cases are often among the hardest for defendants to win. Our attorneys have the experience and skills to successfully litigate these cases.

Sealing and Expungement of Records

A criminal record can prevent you from pursuing higher education, securing your dream job, or traveling abroad. We can help you eliminate past criminal charges from your record, or get those records sealed so you can move on with your life.
