Attorney in Williamsport, Pennsylvania

Roan Confer

Roan J. Confer, Jr.

Attorney at Law

I’ve been practicing criminal law—and only criminal law—for over 20 years. I handle every criminal case imaginable, including DUIs, drug offenses, and violent crimes. I began practicing law in 1997 and have been honing my legal skills ever since, including time at the District Attorney's Office and on the County Drug Task Force. However, I got tired of seeing bad things happen to good people. In 2006, I opened my own firm dedicated to defending criminally accused individuals across Pennsylvania. Now, I get to use my skills to help people in need, not put them away.
