Knowledgeable Criminal Defense Lawyer

My name is Andrew Schneider, and I am a criminal defense attorney. In almost 42 years of my law practice, I try to give people the kind of representation I would hope to receive if charged with a crime. When I become your lawyer, my No. 1 concern is you. I care about your personal circumstances and will not give up on your case.

My office is in Bucks County, near Montgomery County, and besides practicing in both those counties, I represent people throughout the five-county Philadelphia area and have represented people throughout Pennsylvania. Right now, I'm representing a man in Pittsburgh and have helped people in Allentown, Easton, Scranton and Monroe County, to name a few. I received my Pennsylvania law license in 1973. My decades of experience have allowed for me to understand the best approach to take in the various courts. I believe my efforts have gained me the respect of prosecutors, judges and my attorney peers.

In Pennsylvania, the usual first proceeding is called a "preliminary hearing" for anyone charged with a crime. Unfortunately, I've encountered too many individuals who know little about a preliminary hearing, go into it without a lawyer, and give up or "waive" this critical hearing, only to suffer the consequences later. As I've handled hundreds of preliminary hearings, I believe that my experience provides assurance that your matter will be handled in your best interest. If charged with a crime, I will be there for you from that preliminary hearing until the matter is resolved through a plea negotiation or a trial.

Besides providing representation in Pennsylvania courts, I also provide criminal defense representation in the federal courts. I've received admissions to federal courts in Pennsylvania and the United States Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, which handles appeals of federal cases from Pennsylvania.

I welcome challenges, unpopular cases and like to say, "The harder the better." I defend clients in traffic violation matters, drunk driving, and up to murder cases. It is my goal to reduce or eliminate all consequences you might face from your criminal charges.
