PITTSBURGH CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER FOR MILITARY VETERANS
At the Zuckerman Law Firm, we are grateful for the sacrifices made by the members of our military to protect our great nation. Upon returning from duty, our men and women in uniform often don't receive the medical and mental health treatment they deserve. These individuals are left fighting a different battle - struggling to overcome mental health conditions and addictions.
The most common charges faced by our military veterans are: Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Drug Possession, Assault and Theft-Related Offenses.
Zuckerman Law Firm takes pride in defending Military Veterans, often at discounted rates
Advocated for a combat-injured Army veteran to receive probation only for two DUI cases in a strict, rural county. Worked behind the scenes to negotiate a summary disorderly conduct plea for a Vietnam War veteran charged with possessing crack cocaine. The Zuckerman Law Firm has proudly represented military veterans charged with crimes in Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania. Although it is not possible to discount rates in all cases, we frequently offer discounts on attorney's fees for criminal, DUI and traffic ticket defense representation for our men and women in the military.
Veterans often have opportunities to receive favorable resolutions of cases not typically granted to the public. Our firm has negotiated resolutions on a wide variety of criminal charges being faced by veterans, including:
- Entry into Veterans Court Programs: Enabling veterans to receive treatment while avoiding jail time and/or convictions from criminal offenses;
- Entry into Mental Health Court program;
- Entry into the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program;
- Probation and house arrest instead of jail time;
- Resolution of misdemeanor and felony charges for summary offenses at Magisterial District Courts;
