May 2019 Recap

Last month was a busy one for the Cornerstone Law Firm team. Attorney Crossett attended several Landlord-Tenant Hearings and helped evict tenants who were not paying rent or who had made dangerous advances against other residents of apartment complexes.

Attorney Ready helped to secure an Order for Possession of Property for a client that buys and sells real estate so that they could take possession of property that was being lived in by someone else. In addition, Attorneys Ready and Crossett handled several real estate agreements, and a real estate closing in our Blandon office.

Attorney Ready handled a jury trial for a client accused of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, and received a verdict of Not Guilty on all counts. In addition, Attorney Ready negotiated favorable sentences and agreements for other clients.

In the middle of the month, the Cornerstone Law Firm team celebrated the Firm’s anniversary on May 21st. We continue to be grateful to Berks County residents for their business and support of our local work, and we’re honored to have the trust of clients all over the state and the country.

Our travels this month have taken us from Schuylkill, Lehigh, and Berks counties all the way out to Allegheny County this month, and has included appearances in a Maryland Court as well.

March 2018 Update

The month of March has been a busy one at the Cornerstone Law Firm! This month, Attorneys David Crossett and Joel Ready have been advocates for a variety of clients, dealing with a broad range of cases and scenarios.

After one client experienced physically painful repercussions from a car accident, Attorney Crossett settled the case with a six-figure settlement. This financial relief will help compensate for personal difficulties the client has dealt with as a result of the accident.

In another case, Attorney Ready acted on behalf of a client who was charged for remaining silent when interrogated by the police (which is your right, according to the 5th Amendment of the Constitution). The charges were dismissed after Attorney Ready filed an “omnibus pretrial motion” and negotiated with the district attorneys’ office. Ultimately, the case was dismissed completely, and the client was cleared of wrongdoing. When a different client was charged with a DUI, Attorney Ready negotiated a favorable plea argument on behalf of the individual, helping the defendant avoid jail time.

Of course, not everyone deals with traumatic experiences or gets charged for a crime, but when life surprises you with difficulties, the Cornerstone Law Firm is here to help. Contact us today to let us know how we can serve you.
