About Baltazar

Learn Baltazar’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    All Aspects of Criminal Litigation: Preliminary Hearings, Trial Level Motions, Negotiated Pleas, Expert Testimony, Bench and/ or Jury Trials. My experience began as an Intern at the Chester County District Attorney's Office while in Law School, and has grown over the last ten years as a trial litigator skilled in all aspects of criminal trials. The latest verdict/ trial was a December 2015 murder trial which resulted in a complete acquittal of all murder and manslaughter charges.

    18 years, 300 cases

  2. Family
    My Family Law practice handles the primary three areas: Divorce, Support, and Custody. The dissolution of a family is often a balance between economics and emotion. I have spent the last 10 years honing a skill set that balances the economics of separation and the clients needs for satisfaction from the closure. As a Family lawyer I learned how to fight for my clients while preserving the relationships that made them a family in the first place.

    18 years, 50 cases

  3. Contracts and agreements
    Contractor-Sub Contractor litigation, Contracts, arbitration and trial litigation for contractual breaches. Prior to Law School I was a general contractor for residential and commercial clients. This informs my legal practice because I fundamentally understand the relationships between a general and a sub. Some generals think it is easier to litigate for the fees owed and this is why I fight for sub contractors who are owed for the work they performed.

    18 years, 20 cases

  4. Landlord or tenant
    I have experience in both evictions for the landlords and defending bad evictions. I have recently won a case in Philadelphia under the Redemption statute which is a rarely used method of saving your home from predatory tax sale buyers. Even though you may not own a house you still have rights in the place you call home.

    18 years, 20 cases

  5. Personal injury
    Injury from slip and falls and motor vehicle accidents, full tort and limited tort cases. I have worked to make people whole after accidents of all different kinds. Most of the time this is primary an insurance settlement claim, but in some cases trial litigation is required. I am comfortable in both scenarios.

Bad lawyer
This is the worse lawyer I have ever had he lied to me about how much money I needed for fines. He stated he made phone calls to me which were never made. He stated he left multiple voice mails which were never left either. He also had no idea what he was talking about during my case and barely got me off. He acted like he was working with the district attorney and wasn’t even trying to help me at all.
