The attorneys of Raipher, P.C. have represented individuals ranging from first-time offenders in accidental hit-and-run cases to hardened career criminals. We practice in both state and federal courts, handling pre-trial conferences, such as grand jury representations and criminal trial defense, appeals, and post-conviction cases. The firm’s attorneys have represented clients in federal death penalty cases, in VCAR cases, and before military tribunals on charges of war crimes and terrorism.

Our firm also has access to a wide range of experts to thoroughly investigate each felony crime charge. When appropriate, our violent crime defense lawyers work with private investigators, psychiatrists, psychologists, medical specialists, accountants, economists, evidence validation experts, and crime scene analysts to gather evidence and build a strong case.

Attorney Raipher D. Pellegrino is particularly knowledgeable about the use of psychiatric evidence in proving diminished capacity, lack of competence, and lack of specific intent in cases in which the person charged with the crime is suffering from mental illness.

Media Coverage
When facing serious felony charges for a violent crime, you need a violent crime defense lawyer who is not only experienced in
the courtroom, but also one with experience tackling high profile cases that draw media attention. Our attorneys have
represented clients in many high profile kidnapping and murder cases. Within the parameters of legal ethics, we work with
print and broadcast media to ensure clients get a fair trial. Handling press coverage is difficult. Work with a law firm that
understands the challenges and operates with professionalism.
