PACDL is not another state affiliation of attorneys.  It is a vital, growing legion of criminal defense practitioners from across the Commonwealth that shares its knowledge, experience and expertise in handling criminal cases to give you a competitive edge over others who do not subscribe to the Association. 

PACDL is focused on highlighting and elevating accomplished criminal defense attorneys in Pennsylvania so they can exemplify superior qualifications of leadership, reputation, influence and performance in the area of criminal defense law.  Its main focus is to provide superior networking opportunities and the highest quality continuing legal education for criminal defense practitioners. 

Additionally, PACDL offers resources to members only in its resource section.  They include amicus briefs filed by PACDL, county Information, and links to other resources.  Log into the Members Only Section to see the resources that are available.

Listserv Group

Everyone has a desire to collaborate with each other.  In this age of communities, PACDL continues to offer a listserv community that offers instant connected relationships with other criminal defense lawyers from across Pennsylvania.  It is an indispensable resource for members and allows them to engage effectively with a broad spectrum of attorneys who will share information, offer guidance, and present holistic views on a variety of criminal defense issues relevant to your practice.  In this knowledge economy, the culture of ideas is important, and we recognize your need to stay current, relevant and understand emerging ideas.  If you have questions or need information, join and post to PACDL’s listserv where the conversation flows, new ideas are encouraged, and participants advocate, educate and inspire.
