ZEALOUSLY DEFENDING THE RIGHTS OF THE ACCUSED
Our approach to Criminal Law is that the charges mean nothing. We will conduct a detailed analysis of the case to determine the validity of the charges and explore all options. From small-amount-of-marijuana charges to the most serious felony offenses, we will zealously defend the rights of the accused.
DUI DEFENSE WITH DIGNITY
DUI DEFENSE & TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS
For most people, a DUI charge is their first real contact with the criminal justice system. You know you’re not a “criminal,” but suddenly find yourself thrust into a place you never thought you’d be without a clue what to do next. The first thing you need is someone to sit down with you, answer all your questions, and explain everything in clear, understandable terms. That’s where we come in to play.
ATTORNEYS YOU CAN TRUST
ESTATE PLANNING & ADMINISTRATION
At our firm, we believe there is no “typical” method of personal and estate planning, as the mix of life circumstances and business and personal assets are unique for each person. Our attorneys have substantial experience in the full breadth of the law of estates, trusts, and taxation to assist you in developing estate plans that carefully balance personal, tax and administrative concerns.
EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN FAMILY MATTERS
Family Law includes the practice areas of custody, child and spousal support, divorce, adoption, and other matters relating to the family and children in particular. At Senft Law, we have extensive experience in all of these matters, including custody trials, complex support issues, every manner of divorce, as well as adoptions and related matters.
REDUCE CLAIMS OF EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION
LABOR & EMPLOYMENT
Our firm handles numerous matters arising under both federal and state employment laws. These cases include claims under federal discrimination statutes, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the National Labor Relations Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.
SOLVE LEGAL PROBLEMS ADVANTAGEOUSLY
GENERAL & COMMERCIAL LITIGATION
Our lawyers represent individuals, small businesses and large corporations in a variety of litigation matters ranging from the simple to the complex. We provide personal attention to our clients and our firm’s litigators have developed a widely-recognized reputation for effective and aggressive representation.
WE'LL EXPLAIN IT ALL
REAL ESTATE LAW
Buying or selling real property is one of the most important transactions you may ever be involved in, and, seemingly, one of the most complicated. Even the most basic home purchase includes lengthy legal documents with lots of small print.
EXPERIENCE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE
ZONING & LAND DEVELOPMENT
Effective representation in Municipal and Zoning matters within York County, and surrounding areas, requires knowledge of the local people, community, and issues surrounding each case. At Senft Schefter Ayers, our municipal practice group offers trusted attorneys from York County who know how to successfully negotiate with both Boards and Applicants.
We also handle more complex matters such as commercial and residential development projects. From the purchase of raw land, through the zoning and subdivision approval process, to the successful completion of construction, we’ll provide the legal expertise you need at every step of the way. We look forward to representing you.
