EXPERIENCE. REPUTATION. RESULTS
Case Summaries of the Law Offices of Richard R. Fink As a respected defense lawyer, Mr. Fink was called on to lecture at the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers' 2012 seminar, titled For The Experienced, on the subject of direct and cross examination. Please read the case summaries below to get a sense of Mr. Fink's capabilities and how he could help you. JUDGE: PRISON OR 2ND CHANCE FOR TEEN ACCUSED OF A HORRIFIC CRIME: Stabbing to death a neighbor. Under Pennsylvania law, juvenile murder defendants are automatically processed in the adult court system — unless the defense seeks to transfer the case back to juvenile court. His lawyer, Richard Fink, filed and won a motion for just such a transfer. The client was placed in a juvenile program. Not long before his 21st birthday the judge deemed the case closed and he was free. He was appointed by the governor's office to sit on a state juvenile justice and delinquency prevention committee. Fink, called the Judge's decision courageous and correct. In adult prison, he "would've been the youngest, smallest person on the cell block. He would've rotted away," Fink says. BRISTOL BOROUGH BUSINESSMAN CHARGED WITH DUMPING HAZARDOUS MATERIALS IN SILVER LAKE PARK FOUND NOT GUILTY IN BUCKS COUNTY COURT: The verdict came after a three-day trial in which he was accused of four counts of violating the state's Solid Waste Management Act. He had faced five to 10 years in jail and a $25,000 fine if convicted. His attorney, Richard Fink, said that the investigation of the dumping was poor, and that the state's witnesses … were not credible. JURY SAYS MANAGER HAD NO PART OF ROBBERY: A Philadelphia man was shocked when another man jumped him inside a Middletown check cashing business in June and robbed him with his own gun. He was "shaken" when police arrested him, alleging he'd planned the fake robbery along with his stepson and another man. But his attorney Richard Fink claimed from the start he had no part of robbery. DRINKING DEATH CHARGES DISMISSED: Involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment charges have been thrown out against a Bucks County man accused of causing a drinking death by providing 100-proof vodka at a party at an off-campus apartment in the town. His attorney, Richard Fink of Langhorne, could not be reached. STUDENT FOUND NOT GUILTY OF DISORDERLY CONDUCT: A Harry S. Truman High School senior was found not guilty of disorderly conduct Monday in connection with his run across the school football field while dressed up as a cow during a game timeout. Had he been found guilty, he faced a $300 fine and 90 days in jail, said his attorney, Richard Fink. He has filed a criminal complaint against the staff member who tackled him from behind, Fink said. The District Attorney's Office is investigating the claim.
