Attorney Joe D'Andrea
Joe D’Andrea

Joe D’Andrea has adopted a simple philosophy, which defines his practice of law:

Provide an Aggressive Defense for the Accused!

Nearly the past 40 years, Joe D’Andrea has earned a reputation as one of the premier criminal defense attorneys in Northeastern Pennsylvania, while aggressively defending the rights of individuals charged with various felonies and misdemeanors in both State and Federal Courts. Throughout his career, Scranton criminal lawyer Joe D’Andrea has zealously represented hundreds of individuals, corporations, and business entities that have been accused of crimes, which include, but are not limited to, Murder, Vehicular Homicide, Manslaughter, Rape, Delivery and Possession with Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance, Child Pornography, DUI, White Collar Crimes, Assault, Arson and Forgery. Based upon his proven results and prolific reputation, Joe has had the pleasure of representing a diverse client base, which includes political officials, doctors, lawyers, bankers, “average Joes and Janes”, students, and pro bono representation of indigent defendants.

High Profile Cases

Throughout his career, Joe D’Andrea has been no stranger to high-profile cases. His services and representation have been sought in several high-profile matters not only in Northeastern Pennsylvania, but also in the national media spotlight. The firm’s cases have been featured on a number of episodes of 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, Nightline, National Public Radio, The New York Times, and The Boston Globe – just to name a few. Moreover, Joe D’Andrea has appeared as a guest commentator on a number of those programs, as well as, local television, radio and print media outlets.

Joe D’Andrea’s success is based, in part, upon an extraordinarily thorough review of the factual circumstances and relevant evidence associated with the allegations in question. Such meticulous preparation, when coupled with the vast expertise and proven experience of a trial litigator, is what translates into success, and distinguishes this practice from the rest. What makes him further unique is, unlike other firms that handle hundreds of cases, Scranton criminal attorney Joe D’Andrea only takes on a limited number of cases, in order to dedicate primary focus and individual attention to each of his clients. Additionally, the firm, when required, has access to the services of a sophisticated network of skilled, experienced and notable experts and investigators, which most notably includes former state, local and federal law enforcement agents.

Remember, if you or a loved one are charged or under investigation for a criminal offense, no matter how big or small; it is imperative to preserve and protect your/their rights. Retaining an experienced criminal attorney to protect those rights should be done immediately. The sooner one engages the services of a seasoned Scranton criminal lawyer; the chances of a positive result for the accused are greatly increased.

Facing criminal charges can be life altering in many ways. Do not hesitate in retaining a skilled, experienced and aggressive criminal attorney to protect your rights and your future. Joe D’Andrea’s practice has been exclusively dedicated to providing aggressive criminal defense for the accused for nearly forty years. Protect yourself, protect your rights.
