Harrisburg/York PA Criminal Defense Attorney Shawn Curry applies his knowledge, skill, and experience to help people accused of crimes throughout Central and South Central Pennsylvania. His targeted focus on you and the unique aspects of your case brings real meaning and real value to “client-focused” representation -- Real Help for Real People accused of crimes.
When you have been accused of crime, your rights are on the line. It can be a stigmatizing and de-humanizing experience.
You are named as a “Defendant.” You are identified by a case-tracking number. You are prejudged by the nature of the crime(s) with which you are charged. Your constitutional right to the presumption of innocence has been seemingly replaced by an assumption of guilt.
You need someone who will take the time to understand the impact the criminal consequences you face could have on you as a person. You need someone to help when you feel helpless, to provide hope when the circumstances seem hopeless. When everything is on the line, you need someone to protect your rights.
There is hope because we are here to help.
If you do not take the right steps to protect your rights, it could come at the expense of your freedom.
When you have been accused of or charged with a crime, your freedom as you know it is at stake. Depending on the nature an d severity of your criminal charges, if you are found guilty, you could be sentenced to county or state prison. Even if you do not face jail time or you are able to avoid it, your freedom could be substantially limited by probation and the restrictions it places on you, as well as fines and costs, and other consequences.
By getting an experienced and compassionate criminal defense lawyer in your corner to defend your rights, we can work together to understand your situation and to protect the freedoms that you enjoy most.

In order to harness the true value of what makes you and your circumstances different from every other “defendant” appearing to be or have been in a similar situation, we engage in an INDIVIDUALIZED APPROACH to your case. To that end, we will work together to define your goals and develop a personalized strategy to put you in the best position to reach your objectives.
