When Experience Matters, Banks Law Group Is Routinely The Trusted Choice

Being charged with a Criminal offense in Pennsylvania is very serious, scary, and costly. Depending on your situation, number of past offenses, and the facts of your case, a criminal offender could be facing; time in prison, significant fines, probation, and limited future job prospects due to a permanent criminal record.

However, there are options to alleviate the burdens of a criminal offense. Depending on the facts of your situation, you may be eligible for a pretrial diversionary program (ARD), rehabilitative probation programs, the dropping of charges, an acquittal, or eventual expungement of your criminal record.

“I am so glad that I found a lawyer who genuinely cares about his clients and gives the best useful advice. His sincere approach made me comfortable and confident that he would help me get the best possible results. Thank you Matt.”
– T.M.

“Matthew Banks represented me for a serious DUI charge and I was completely pleased with the results… All charges against me were dropped. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a DUI attorney.”
 – R.L.

 “When I initially called Matt he broke down the process and made sure that I knew all of the possible outcomes and tried to work the best deal for me.”
 – J.R.

“When I first called Matt he felt concerned not only about my case, but I could tell he cared about me and my well being. He was honest and up front with my case. Not only was I pleased with the outcome, Matt also took one-step further to call with concerns of my well being. Generally, attorneys do not call you back.”
 – D.P.

“I hired Matthew Banks to represent me in my DUI case, he did an exceptional job. Mr. Banks went over all available options for sentencing and explained everything clearly to me. He got me a great deal and remained helpful and interactive with me the entire trial. I would recommend Matthew Banks to my friends, family, and co-workers. Thanks Matt!”
 – D.S.

“Very attentive and cares: During your primary phone call with Attorney Banks, expect to immediately feel comfortable with his advice. He is attentive and cares about your needs. He gives strong and note worthy advice that makes an impact. He is great with follow up and his fees are fair. Words cannot express how thankful I am to him. One of the best, truly.”
 – Katie

“Best of the best: Dear Attorney Banks, My son, Joshua, had asked me to write you on his behalf. He just wanted to say thank you for everything your law firm did for him for all his cases. He especially wanted me to let you know that he felt Attorney Harakal went above and beyond for him at times. Attorney Harakal was on top of every case Josh had. He made many phone calls, court dates got changed ( a lot) and Josh was going from one jail to another. He worked with the advocate from the VA for Josh. Attorney Harakal always made time for me when I called on behalf of Josh ( and I called a lot!) He went to see Josh in jail, to make sure Josh understood what was going on. Both Josh and I have recommended your law firm to anyone who asks us if we know a good lawyer. Thanks to Attorney Harakal, Josh will be going back down to the VA on May 15, 2017, and getting into the PTSD program that he desperately needs. Thank you.”
 – Margaret

“Awesome guy and lawyer! Mr. Banks took the time to make sure I understood and agreed to everything happening in my case. He made me feel comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation. He’s a great lawyer and a great guy. Its clear he enjoys what he does and puts all his effort and skill into every case, even a trivial one. I would highly recommend him to anybody needing a lawyer in the future.”
 – Emily

“Matthew Banks will always have deepest gratitude. I never thought that I would find myself in trouble with the law. Being accused of a crime that I knew I was not guilty of, is still at the end of the day, a crime I was charged with. I was, and am very naïve about the law today. If you think that you understand the law because you watch crime shows on T.V. believe me you are mistaken. If you are in trouble, there is no one that could represent you better then Matthew Banks. Matthew is a very down to earth man who listened to me and represented me with the professionalism and skill that got positive results, and in the end, got my charge dismissed. If I would ever need an attorney in the future, there is no doubt, I would call Matthew Banks to represent me. He has my heartfelt thanks and my highest recommendation.”

“I was very pleased with Mr. Banks. Even when I felt like giving up he proceeded to fight for me and my case was dismissed. I know that had I not gone to him I would have ended up in a different situation. Also being a single mom with twins my finances are tight. The Banks Law Group setup a payment plan I could handle. Thanks again!!”
