Delivering Results when it counts the most!!

As a criminal defense lawyer, Attorney Mark Hinrichs represents and protects individuals facing serious consequences in the criminal justice system. Mark is privileged and honored to stand with the individual citizen to “level the playing field" against the Commonwealth - an adversary with vast resources and advantages. Every case is important and gets nothing less than a 100% effort and focus in order to get the best result possible for each client.


In 2000, Mark graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Miami. Following graduation from college, he secured employment as a paralegal working alongside Roy Black, Esquire, and other attorneys at Black, Srebnick, Kornspan, and Sumpf, P.A., one of the best, highly-respected criminal defense firms in the United States. In 2007, Mark graduated from Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and subsequently passed the Pennsylvania and New Jersey bar examinations that same year.


Since 2008, Mark has dedicated his career to becoming an expert criminal defense lawyer. Over the past ten years, he has trained with some of the most successful, highly respected criminal defense attorneys in Philadelphia, Miami, and Newark, New Jersey. Mark learned the value of relentless preparation, continued commitment to expanding his knowledge and skill, integrity for the profession, and unwavering perseverance to win– key ingredients for the most successful criminal attorneys. He approaches every case with the client’s needs and concerns as a top priority. Unless instructed otherwise by the client, each case will be investigated and prepared with the attitude that the case will be resolved successfully at trial rather than to immediately recommend the client plead guilty. Mark conducts a full, exhaustive investigation of the allegations in order to provide the client with all available options supported by sound, reliable legal advice. Attorney Hinrichs handles each case personally and does not send unknown associates to court in his place. If you hire Mark, you get Mark.


Upon relocating to the Lehigh Valley, Attorney Mark Hinrichs brings approximately 11 years of Philadelphia criminal defense trial experience to the area, and will continue the same aggressive, professional, and thorough legal representation to his cases throughout Central and Eastern Pennsylvania.


Attorney Mark Hinrichs and his wife reside in the Lehigh Valley and is an avid fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies and the Miami Hurricanes.

Outstanding Power Law Firm
Mark and Tiffany Hinrichs are a dynamic team of professionals that get the job done. Point blank! Tiffany is an amazing Legal Assistant and just a sweetheart to work with and talk to. Mark is an amazing, knowledgeable Attorney that delivers results not to mention a true gentleman. You will not find a better team to work with if you were to ever need them. I can personally say that I can now breathe easy and move forward with my life because of the dedication, motivation and knowledge of the two of them. If you find yourself in need of a defense attorney I highly recommend that you reach to MH Criminal Defense. They will not and do not disappoint. Not to mention they are just good people. You get treated as a person and not as deep as your pockets are.

Not your average Lawyer.
5 STARS is not Sufficient. Mark clearly dominated his counterparts and the fight clearly would've ended much sooner if we had a more sensible judge! Thank You is not enough!You gave me and my family hope for a better day!

Great Lawyer
Has to be the best lawyer in the area. Mark handled my case superbly!! He was able to extend my ARD which has allowed me to avoid a DUI conviction. He worked extremely hard for me and gave me a very fair rate as well. I would hands down recommend him to anyone in need of a lawyer, you won’t be disappointed.

Difference maker
Mark was responsible for getting my son out of jail and into rehab and convinced the judge to give him time served for failing a drug test. Another lawyer told us that he had never seen this judge do this before. Kudos to Mark.

Best lawyer out there!
Attorney Hinrichs knows his stuff!!! On the day of my court date I have very nervous but he assured me that everything would be ok and it was! He pretty much had my case all squared away in my favor of course before we even got everyone together. He gets straight to the point and doesn’t waist time. If you are looking for a criminal lawyer, I highly recommend Attorney Mark Hinrichs. He really is one of the best out there

Best attorney in the area.
Criminal charges? Hire the best. Mark is by far the best attorney I’ve ever hired in my life. Comes through with the best results. On top of all that his rates are affordable. I wouldn’t fight the criminal system without him. Remember his name, never know when you’re gonna need it.

Amazing Help
I got charged with robbery and burglary plus 5 other charges that could lead up to 20-40 years in prison. Mark helped get it reduced to Trespassing and theft which turned out with me getting 2 years probation which is a blessing when you are stressed thinking about how your life could go down the drain for one bad decision or just for being around the wrong crowd. Idk how any one else would feel but I feel blessed and happy I invested in Mark Hinrich. Hopefully I won’t need him again but I would definitely hire him again or refer him to anyone with a serious crime or small crime. 10/10 Recommend

First I'd like to say to search for but don't pass up an opportunity to Hire Mark and his Firm, Young and Ambitious with a lot of drive is what you will get when You Hire Mark. I felt extremally good after meeting with Mark after having paid $$$ to another firm that claims to be the BEST. I hired Mark based off representation he had given me while I was with this other firm, after the other firm made promises that they didn't hold up to and only represented me to get two warrants lifted while under their representation. ( Yes! I received two warrants while under representation for failure to appear! ??) Mark had to have one of these lifted while at this Firm who poorly handled my case - He himself was beyond belief that clients were being poorly represented/ cases not handled properly. Mark had left this Firm and My wife set out on a google search to find him, and she did. We called Mark after the 2nd warrant for a no show, thanks to the other firm ,explained the drama and Mark jumped right in, filed the paperwork and off to court we went the following week. Mark was Professional and took care of the warrant, the misunderstandings, and got me in the Program immediately. I have since completed this program . Mark also followed up with the steps and progress along the way . Mark is Superlative, Knowledgeable, and Good at getting things done the way he says he will . I am very happy with his representation and would recommend his Firm to handle your case.
