  • Matthew Stephen Crosby

    Doug is an excellent criminal law attorney. I have had the good fortune of working with him on many cases over the years and he has always been a strong advocate for his clients. Attorney Marsico is very active in the local community. He is a Central Pennsylvanian - born and raised. He is smart. He is hard working. Perhaps, most importantly, he is very easy to talk to. He presents his clients with a straightforward summary of the law and how it will likely impact the facts of each individual case. I would strongly recommend Attorney Marsico for any criminal matter, including DUI cases.
