Pennsylvania accountant accused of hiding millions from IRS

Strict adherence to accounting procedures and guidelines contributes to a large portion of any Pennsylvania business’ success. When one member of an accounting team fails to abide by proper accounting principles and engage in accounting fraud, that person not only compromises him or herself, but the business’ profitability and reputation.

Victim's family sues five bars after drunk driving accident

If you or someone close to you has ever been involved in a drunk driving accident, you may not know about Pennsylvania’s Dram Shop Act, which states that restaurants, bars, and other alcohol-serving establishments can be held accountable for the later careless decisions and conduct of customers to whom they have served alcohol.

U.S. Supreme Court to rule on constitutionality of cell phone searches

When the Founders of the United States drafted the Constitution, it was impossible for them to predict the emergence of cell phones, smart phones, and other devices. Over the last two centuries, federal and state governments in Pennsylvania and elsewhere have addressed several criminal defense issues related to technologies that did not exist in the early days of our nation’s history.

Philadelphia area truck accident leaves 1 dead
