Attorney Rivera

Exceptional Representation

I have been serving my clients in the Central Pennsylvania Area for over twenty years. Knowing your rights is crucial to the success of your case. It is extremely important that you not speak to the police or law enforcement until you have first spoken to an attorney. Throughout my many years of criminal practice,  I have fought for my clients rights in numerous counties and federal court. I have a stellar litigation practice and have had success in local, state, and federal courts. I also have had great success before our state and federal appellate courts.

Contact me before speaking to the police.
