Example cases

In the case of a man who shot his girlfriend's father in the head while he was sleeping and then dismembered the body with a chainsaw, rolled him in a carpet, and dumped him in the Pine Barrens, I obtained a Third Degree Murder verdict after trial and a sentence of 15 years in prison, which he chose not to appeal.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Working in the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office left me better qualified to try criminal defense cases than anything else I could do for a living.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Clients should always learn about the law that is involved in their cases, though they need to look to their lawyers for the practical application of that law so that they know what to expect.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

My clients don't ever prepare their own documents.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I do not coach clients to represent themselves. Though I am happy to give my opinions in initial consultations which are free, and the clients are then free to use that advice or information in any way they choose.

Steven F. Fairlie

I got my start in the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office and then branched off to various firms in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties.

Working in the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office helped me learn how to go to trial in an effective and successful manner.

I can analyze a case and get to the likely result very quickly and efficiently. I can then use that to determine and achieve the best plea-bargain, or to develop a winning trial strategy.

Personal interests:

Rugby, scuba diving, and Philadelphia professional sports.
