Criminal Defense Attorneys

The Shaka Johnson, Esquire in Philadelphia represents clients in a wide range of criminal defense matters, including state and federal charges. Our office is made up of former assistant D.As, and attorneys with actual law enforcement experience -- and our founding attorney come from a background as a Police Officer where he served as a SWAT Team member, Narcotics Detective and later, member of the District Attorney's office.

We believe that the best criminal defenders have experience on both sides of the argument. The only way to really understand how to fight and weaken a prosecutor's case is to have built those kinds of cases. Experience on both sides of the criminal justice system gives our attorneys an advantage that we can put to work for you.

If you have been charged with a crime, the consequences of choosing not to fight can be as obvious as jail time or as subtle as how it affects your job and your future rights.
