The Firm Overview

The Experience to Effectively Fight Criminal Charges

The law firm of Joyce & Bittner was founded in 1989 by attorneys Anthony M. Bittner and Richard J. Joyce. Both Mr. Joyce and Mr. Bittner have more than 25 years of experience practicing law.

The Law Firm

Prior to founding our firm, Mr. Bittner worked for almost a decade in the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office. He began in the Appeals Division, later moving to the Trial Division, prosecuting misdemeanor and felony crimes. He ultimately worked as an attorney supervising investigations in the District Attorney’s White Collar Unit. At the same time, Mr. Joyce worked for over 10 years for the City of Pittsburgh. During that time, he was appointed Assistant Chief, Office of Professional Responsibility for the Public Safety Department. In that capacity, he was in charge of the public safety office that investigated misconduct or illegal activities on the part of police officers, fire fighters, building inspectors, and EMS workers.

Because both attorneys have worked for prosecutorial agencies, they understand your opposition. They know how to fight the prosecution, because they know how the prosecution operates. They handle cases involving both state and federal criminal law.
If you have been charged with a crime, don’t speak to the police and don’t hesitate to secure competent, experienced legal representation.
