A Criminal Defense Lawyer Who Always Prepares For Trial

In criminal cases, early preparation is a valuable asset. We proactively investigate and analyze every detail — beginning on day one — to build a position of strength. Attorney Craig P. Kalinoski has earned a reputation for his drive to challenge the evidence in pretrial motions and willingness to go to trial when necessary to safeguard the rights of our clients.

Drug cases are not run-of-the-mill charges in Pennsylvania. Mr. Kalinoski draws on his background in law enforcement and more than a decade fighting for those charged with drug crimes to obtain the most favorable outcome possible. Drug cases often involve a complicated interplay between the factual evidence and constitutional principles. It is critical that your attorney has the skills to fully analyze these kinds of cases.

Common friction points arise over search and seizure issues. We thoroughly analyze such issues as whether the police had a legal right to be present to affect a search or seizure. In cases involving a traffic stop, we fully review the legal basis of the stop. When a search warrant is involved, you need a lawyer who knows how to evaluate the validity of the warrant. Mr. Kalinoski is that lawyer.

We have the legal know-how and experience to aggressively defend against all types of drug charges in Pennsylvania, including:

  • Felony drug distribution, sales or delivery
  • Possession with intent to deliver
  • Heroin trafficking
  • Cultivation or growing or marijuana
  • Drug manufacturing
