We are available in Clearfield County, Jefferson County, Centre County and surrounding areas to defend and protect you in all criminal matters, including:

Criminal Defense The most basic of premise of our criminal justice system is that all Criminal Defendants are innocent until proven guilty. However, with the advent of social media, that presumption can get skewed in the opposite direction. The Cummings Law Firm, LLC will ensure that the jury understands that you are innocent until proven guilty and that your most basic rights are protected.

Additionally, the prosecutor must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. This is an extremely high burden of proof, and that burden is ALWAYS on the prosecution. This means more than just having a "hunch" that you committed a crime. It is important that you have someone fighting for you who knows and understands your many constitutional rights and protections. It is equally important that you have someone fighting for you who can convey those rights and protections zealously to the jury. With your liberty on the line, you need The Cummings Law Firm, LLC on your side, fighting for you!

If you have been arrested or charged with a criminal offense, the most important call you will make is to your Clearfield criminal defense lawyer; Attorney Maines. Make your call count; we certainly will.
