Criminal Defense

If you’ve been charged with a crime, obtaining an experienced defense attorney early is essential to safeguard your rights. We have successfully handled the following charges at trial and on appeal:

  • Driving while under the influence (DUI)
  • Drug crimes and narcotics offenses
  • Sex crimes
  • Guns and weapons offenses
  • Parole and probation violations

Prosecution for sex crimes has been on the rise in recent years. If you’ve been accused of inappropriate sexual contact with an underaged person, you need a trusted and experienced child sexual abuse lawyer representing you. At Cornerstone, our sexual abuse and child molestation lawyers believe that everyone is innocent until proven guilty by a jury of their peers, and we work to combat the stigma of an accusation, especially those coming from minors. Philly’s top child abuse lawyer, D. Wesley Cornish, works tirelessly to explore every potential defense strategy. Your dedicated child abuse and molestation attorney will partner with private investigators and interview friends and family members to secure the best possible outcome. We’re even known for our use of audio-visuals to strengthen our clients’ cases.

Rated amongst the top sexual abuse lawyers and law firms here in Philly, Attorney Cornish and our legal team at Cornerstone have decades of experience fighting charges from the moment of a client’s arrest to the final appeal in state or federal courts. Whether you’ve been arrested for a misdemeanor or a felony, we aim to help you avoid the collateral consequences of a criminal charge like prison time, financial costs, and the loss of your civil rights.

If a loved one under the age of 18 has been charged with a crime, you need a seasoned juvenile law lawyer on your side to protect their future. At Cornerstone, our juvenile delinquency lawyer devotes as much time and energy advocating for our young clients as necessary.

Civil Rights Violations

Federal and state police must comply with the many rights and privileges guaranteed to citizens by the law. We have expertise in handling the following civil rights violations:

  • False arrest and malicious prosecution
  • Civil and criminal forfeiture
  • Prisoner rights and Eighth Amendment violations (state and federal)
  • Excessive force

If you believe your civil rights have been violated, we will work diligently to get you the compensation and justice you deserve. It’s up to lawyers like us to police the police; otherwise, our criminal justice system will never be something that protects the rights of all citizens. At Cornerstone Legal Group, we’ve successfully litigated cases against police departments and other government agencies and have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients.
