also known as R. Anthony DeLuca

About Me

My partners and I have a down to earth approach to practicing criminal law. While we are highly experienced in the field and have worked on the other side prosecuting cases, we understand that often people seeking to retain our services are not fully familiar with the criminal justice system.  We also understand that when clients contact us it is a very difficult time in their lives and, understanding this, we are not judgemental.  We are here to help not lecture.  We can proudly say that may of our clients are suprised at how down to earth we act.  We will not treat you as a criminal, we will treat you as a person that needs help.
