Philadelphia Criminal Defense Lawyer David Jay Glassman

Over 40 Years of Experience. Former Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General

Before opening my private practice in 1987, I was a former Deputy Attorney General in Pennsylvania and Prosecutor in Atlantic County, New Jersey. My passion for justice and my commitment to clients have made me a well-respected criminal defense advocate, well known for upholding the best interests of the people I represent.

No matter the charges, I fight to protect your freedom

I understand that finding yourself in legal trouble is frightening, and you put an enormous amount of faith in the attorney you hire to represent you. In return, you deserve to be treated as more than just another case. It’s important to me to treat each client with respect, dignity and compassion – from the high-profile cases featured on the front page of the newspaper to everyday cases of DUI, domestic violence or other charges. I work closely with you, keeping the channels of communication open so that you correctly understand your circumstances, the legal process and what to expect. I pride myself on my knowledge of statutes and precedents and work hard to achieve the best possible outcome for every client I represent.
