ROGERS CASTOR FIRM WINS PRECEDENT SETTING CASE VALUABLE TO PENNSYLVANIA PROSECUTORS EVERYWHERE
September 14, 2015
Our firm just won a major, precedent setting, victory for clients of ours that will be used by prosecutors throughout Pennsylvania for decades to come. With assistance from Kent Conway, Esq. of ROGERS CASTOR, I briefed and argued the case in Montgomery County Court, and again in the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, winning at both levels. Just today, the Superior Court issued its opinion. It is rare that a civil case will have such wide-ranging application statewide to future criminal investigations and prosecutions, and I did not think the court would be as sweeping as it was. I know it is unprofessional and maybe boasting a bit, but I am so proud of the work our firm's people did to bring this about. Not to mention our clients, Gary and Nancy Veloric who have stuck it out, literally, for years seeking justice. I have already sent it off to the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association to get out to their members.
