Serving Counties in Central And Western Pennsylvania Since 1993

Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Attorney

If you have been charged with a crime, it is important to have competent and thorough representation as soon as possible. The decisions you make in the days and weeks ahead may be life-changing decisions. You want a strong advocate for your rights and future. 

At the law firm of Christopher E. Mohney, Esquire, in DuBois, Pennsylvania, we believe that representing you in a criminal matter is about more than just protecting you from short-term consequences. It is about giving you the information you need to make the best possible decisions for your future. 

For example, a plea bargain that enables you to avoid jail time may not be a good deal if you end up with a criminal conviction that will affect you for the rest of your life. You deserve to know your rights, your options, and how to reach the most successful resolution of your case.
