Aggressive Criminal Defense Representation Since 1972
I am John J. Kerrigan, Jr., and have served as a criminal defense attorney for more than 35 years. Whatever charge you may be facing, my firm can help. I believe in using every means at my disposal to defend my clients' rights and preserve their freedom.
My firm focuses exclusively on the practice of criminal defense, and represents clients in Pennsylvania state and federal courts, and in juvenile proceedings in Bucks County, Montgomery County, and Philadelphia County.

Assault and violent crimes — I have been recognized for my skill at diligently handling the criminal defense of people accused of violent crimes like assault, and domestic violence.

Juvenile offenses — I am proud to have helped many young people overcome juvenile charges in ways which avoid permanent criminal records and which preserve their educational and career options.
Conspiracy, attempt, solicitation and accessory charges — I provide a vigorous defense of these serious charges.

Post-conviction matters — Including expungement, criminal appeals, probation and parole violations.
