With a Background in Forensic Chemistry, Attorney Marinaro Is a Powerful Advocate

Before Mr. Marinaro became a lawyer, he was a forensic chemist for the Maryland State Police for 10 years. It would be challenging to find an attorney in Pennsylvania who has a similar background. Forensic evidence can take many forms. Your attorney must know precisely how strong the evidence is or is not and the places where such evidence is weak or incomplete. Some forms of such analysis include:

  • Fingerprints
  • Blood analysis
  • DNA testing
  • Firearms testing
  • Forensic toxicology

Mr. Marinaro’s unique combination of scientific knowledge and legal experience make him a powerful advocate for those facing criminal charges. Your attorney could have all the legal accolades in the world, but if he or she lacks the knowledge to interpret forensic evidence correctly, your case could be in trouble.
