Philip Masorti

Criminal Attorney

I have been defending the rights of the criminally accused since 1992 and I have been involved in all aspects of criminal litigation from initial investigation to final appeal. I have tried to verdict well-over 80 criminal cases and I have negotiated pre-trial resolutions in well-over 1000 other criminal matters. My priority is defending clients with passion and skill against complicated and serious criminal prosecutions.

I have dedicated my career to criminal defense and to the science of Trial Advocacy. I believe in representing my clients zealously and maneuvering cases as quickly and cost -effectively as possible through the criminal justice system. I am an active member of the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and I regularly attend more than 12 Credit hours of ongoing legal education annually. I have the privilege of teaching Trial Advocacy at Penn State School of Law.

I have won acquittals on major cases including attempted murder, aggravated assault, drug deliveries, rape, sexual assault, conspiracy, arson, terroristic threats, simple assaults, burglary, criminal trespasses, DUI, indecent assault, unauthorized use, furnishing alcohol, recklessly endangering and other serious charges.

As a rule and guiding principle, I represent clients as though they were my own family member.

You were more than a lawyer. You gave me a small measure of hope that made me feel like I would come out of everything okay.

“Mr Biichle went above and beyond for me. Even after my legal problems were over he still gave me great advice and helped me with other things free of charge. I would recommend Aaron to anybody and everybody. He took great care of me and he always gave me updates. I didn’t have to chase him around to find out what was going on. Hire Aaron; you won’t be disappointed”
