Criminal charges have the potential to ruin your life, especially if they're not properly handled. When your rights are on the line, you need an attorney who understands your concerns and will effectively and aggressively fight for your legal rights.

Founded in 1951, Shaffer & Engle Law Offices, LLC, has built a long-standing reputation for success. We provide attentive, compassionate and discerning legal representation to clients across central Pennsylvania who are facing state or federal charges, including those related to:

  • Sex offenses — Rape, child pornography, sexual assault and molestation
  • Drug offenses — Drug possession, sale and trafficking
  • Violent crimes — Weapons offenses, homicide and assault
  • Financial crimes — Fraud, embezzlement and identity theft
  • Drunk driving — DUI, repeat DUI and breath and blood test refusal

When It Comes To Criminal Charges, Experience Matters

Our criminal defense lawyers have helped thousands of people stand up for their rights and successfully navigate the challenges of the criminal justice system. We are fierce litigators who are not afraid to take a case to trial and our successful track record in the courtroom benefits clients as we are able to negotiate favorable plea agreements.

Attorney Elisabeth K.H. Pasqualini is a well-respected trial attorney who has secured not guilty verdicts for her clients in federal racketeering (RICO), rape, drug trafficking, sexual assault, firearms, indecent assault and DUI trials.

Attorney Jeffrey Engle's appellate work on behalf of his client in Com. V. Neiman resulted in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court declaring that Megan's Law III (Act 152) was unconstitutional.

We have successfully defended clients from all walks of life against all types of state and federal charges — including high-profile, high-stakes sex offense cases.

Is Your Professional License On The Line?

The consequences of criminal allegations can extend far beyond the justice system. Your professional license may also be in jeopardy.

We regularly defend licensed professionals who face disciplinary action and allegations of professional misconduct. As licensed attorneys, we realize how important it is for doctors, nurses, teachers, real estate agents and other professionals to have an active license and remain in good standing with their governing body. License suspension affects not only your ability to work, but also your ability to provide for yourself and your family. We can help you pursue every available avenue for safeguarding your professional licensure and reputation.
