Philip Masorti

Criminal Attorney

My priority is representing clients with passion and skill on complicated and serious criminal investigations. I have been involved in all aspects of criminal defense from initial investigation through trial and appeal. I represent clients charged with summary level underage drinking and disorderly conduct citations, as well as misdemeanor and major felony charges, including but not limited to attempted murder, rape, arson, conspiracy, aggravated assault, and burglary.

I have been representing the rights of the criminally accused since 1992 and I have been involved in all aspects of criminal clients 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 over 1000 other criminal matters.

I have dedicated my career to criminal defense and to the science of Trial Advocacy. I believe in representing my clients with zeal and to maneuvering and case as quickly and cost-effectively possible through the criminal justice system. I am an active member of the Pennsylvania Association of Trial Lawyers and I regularly attend more than 12 Credit hours of ongoing legal education annually.

As a rule and guiding principal, 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.
