Comprehensive Law Practice for Family Law, Criminal Defense, & Personal Injury
Legal matters are often complex, confusing, and sensitive. At The Law Office of Jason R. Carpenter, our team understands the overwhelming details and emotions inherent in each case we take. Our client’s best interest is the driving force behind our work. We advocate for our clients with a laser-like tenacity and compassion.
New Path Forward: Divorce & Family Law
Events within a family can be the most joyous experienced in a lifetime: a marriage, birth of a child, an exciting move, or a new job. These precious moments can also flip upside down at a moment’s notice. When they do, you often need a family lawyer.
Divorce is filled with many emotional decisions. Determining how to divide belongings, who gets primary custody of children, and what support is provided are all difficult conclusions to reach. We value the humanity in families as they move forward in separate directions.
High-conflict and high-asset divorces are particularly complicated. We have the know-how and experience to parse each detail and remain unphased by the complexity. When needed, we work with financial professionals to ensure no stone is left unturned.
Our role is not just to get you to the finish line of a divorce. We also want to establish a foundation to help you thrive in your new, happier life. After your divorce, we’re still here for you if circumstances change. Custody andsupport agreements may require modification from time to time.
Ending a marriage is both a legal and personal issue. We always keep in mind both aspects as we guide you through the process.
Fight for Your Future: Criminal Defense
Getting arrested in Mount Joy is the beginning of what can be a long and challenging process. Swirling thoughts might fill your mind but remember one thing. Call one of ourcriminal defense attorneys right away. The sooner we can begin building your defense strategy, the better.
Anyone charged with a crime has the right to a lawyer. There are several reasons why you should consider hiring a private lawyer from The Law Office of Jason R. Carpenter instead of a public defender. Public defenders have large caseloads that limit how much time they can spend on a case. We take a deep dive into every aspect of our client’s criminal case. A thorough investigation of the charges may illuminate cracks in the prosecution’s case, improper evidence gathering, and inconsistencies. Charges might be dropped or reduced. During a trial, a jury might have reasonable doubt.
Felony and misdemeanor convictions can follow you for the rest of your life. Even after you’ve paid fines or served time behind bars, a guilty verdict negatively impacts your job prospects, housing, education, and relationships. Our goal is to keep a conviction from ever blighting your record or to significantly reduce any penalties.
Fair Compensation: Personal Injury
Some accidents are unavoidable and blameless. Accidents caused by someone else’s negligence or willful action are another story. These accidents may be grounds for filing a personal injury lawsuit. Injuries are often accompanied by many costs.
There might be emergency room visits, hospital stays, prescriptions, blood transfusions, surgeries, and more. The related expenses can be more long-term such as physical therapy, occupational rehabilitation, counseling, at-home aides, and more. Of course, there are also lost wages and a drop in enjoyment of life. Catastrophic injuries can affect the rest of your life. Sadly, some accidents also result in wrongful death.
After we file the lawsuit, our legal team gets to work compiling the evidence and interviewing witnesses and experts. We can aggressively support your claims and justify the damages you deserve.
In the state of Pennsylvania, the law recognizes several different types of injury claims. Each has their own elements and required proof for a personal injury lawsuit claim. That’s where an injury attorney like The Law Office of Jason Carpenter comes in handy. Our team will work through your unique case and build the proper cases and documentation needed.
