Biography

As a criminal defense lawyer, Attorney Mark Hinrichs represents and protects individuals facing serious consequences in the criminal justice system. Mark is privileged and honored to stand with the individual citizen to “level the playing field" against the Commonwealth - an adversary with vast resources and advantages. Every case is important and gets nothing less than a 100% effort and focus in order to get the best result possible for each client.
Following graduation from college, he secured employment as a paralegal working alongside Roy Black, Esquire, and other attorneys at Black, Srebnick, Kornspan, and Sumpf, P.A., one of the best, highly-respected criminal defense firms in the United States. After passing the PA and NJ bar exams, Attorney Hinrichs has trained with some of the most successful, highly respected criminal defense attorneys in Philadelphia, Miami, and Newark, New Jersey. Mark learned the value of relentless preparation, continued commitment to expanding his knowledge and skill, integrity for the profession, and unwavering perseverance to win– key ingredients for the most successful criminal attorneys. He approaches every case with the client’s needs and concerns as a top priority. Attorney Hinrichs reviews each case to beat the case rather than suggesting a guilty plea. Mark conducts a full, exhaustive investigation of the allegations in order to provide the client with all available options supported by sound, reliable legal advice. Attorney Hinrichs handles each case personally and does not send unknown associates to court in his place. Upon relocating to Luzerne County, Attorney Mark Hinrichs brought approximately 10 years of Philadelphia criminal defense trial experience to the area, and will continue the same aggressive, professional, and thorough legal representation to his cases throughout Central and Eastern Pennsylvania.

Q. Yesterday I had to make a plea of guilty to a Aggrevated assault but my lawyer didn’t show all the facts what can I do?
A: you need to speak with your attorney. i cant give you advice since you are represented. However, seems that a decision either to plead guilty to the facts as asserted by the Commonwealth or go to trial are the options, and you chose to plead guilty. you will have an opportunity at sentencing to present things to show you in a positive light. The only other option would be to request to withdraw your guilty plea and go to trial.
Q. Aggravated Assault with SBI - How many years incarcerated in PA if found guilty with a gravity score of 1?
A: There isn't enough information to even make a educated guess. Many different circumstances and factors will be considered (or should be) by the Court when fashioning a reasonable sentence. The Court will consider that this is not a guilty plea (as your question points out "found guilty" indicating following a conviction at trial), the seriousness of the injuries and other facts and circumstances of the incident (weapons, ages, etc.), the history, family life, mental health, prior criminal history, other mitigating circumstances, rehabilitation needs of the defendant, protection of the community, what is needed to vindicate the authority of the court, and other relevant factors. PA criminal justice system uses the sentencing guidelines to get a suggested range for the minimum term of confinement before the person is eligible for parole; however, this is only a suggestion and the court can sentence outside that range. Also, there are potential enhancements, meaning certain specific factors that can increase the range, that if requested by the commonwealth and could be imposed in light of the incident, would have an impact. In addition, if the defendant was convicted of crimes in addition to the Agg Assault, the court could potentially impose consecutive sentences to increase the minimum length of incarceration. So as you can see, there would not be any way to provide you with an educated guess based on your question other than to say the defendant is likely to see some term of incarceration as opposed to a probationary only sentence.
Q. I live in Pennsylvania and my 16 year old son took a bb gun with him to school. Can he get charged.
A: Yes, a number of things can happen, including being charged with several crimes. i suggest you and your retain counsel immediately and do not speak with the police without an attorney.
