Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers

Fighting for and Protecting the Rights of Individuals Charged with Crimes throughout Williamsport and All of Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania

Facing criminal charges is scary and confusing. We know that a criminal conviction can have far-reaching and life-long consequences. Not knowing what to expect or the fear of severe punishment makes some people eager to speak with the police, consent to searches, confess, or plead guilty without understanding the full impact of their actions. We have proved to be unrelenting in order to assure that all of our clients' rights are protected. An experienced lawyer who can develop a solid defense strategy for you may mean a reduced sentence or even dropped charges. We are prepared to zealously defend our clients and protect their rights at every stage of the criminal process, from the investigative stage through the pre-trial, trial and appeal stages.

At the law firm of Miele & Rymsza, P.C., we represent people throughout northeastern and central Pennsylvania who have been charged with virtually every kind of misdemeanor and felony criminal offenses.

Juvenile Defense

Our firm understands that juveniles make mistakes. We understand the sensitive nature of being legally punished as adults for something they did at a young age. If your child has been charged with a crime, we will work to ensure he or she is tried as a juvenile. We work tirelessly to lessen your child's sentence, reduce the punishment to probation, and/or have the charge expunged from your child's record when he or she turns 18.
