We Have The Experience Needed For Your Case
Attorney Anthony Bittner spent over seven years as an assistant district attorney in Allegheny County before co-founding Joyce & Bittner in 1989. The investigation and prosecution of public officials on charges of corruption, bribery or extortion, as well as complicated cases involving embezzlement, frauds and computer-related crimes, formed a significant component of his practice as a prosecutor.
Today, this experience is highly valuable to our clients in defense of similar charges. Moreover, attorney Richard J. Joyce was the first assistant chief in charge of the Office of Professional Responsibility for the city of Pittsburgh under Mayor Richard Caliguiri and Sophie Masloff. He often oversaw the investigations of hundreds of cases against police, fire, EMS and building inspectors for allegations of misconduct, ethics violations and corruption.
