Attorneys Del Greco and Veverka Keep Client from a Life in Prison

7/24/2017

Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote, P.C. attorneys Robert G. Del Greco, Jr. and Albert P. Veverka defended James Bongiorni, who was charged with criminal homicide. After a one-week jury trial, defended by Del Greco and Veverka, Mr. Bongiorni was acquitted of all charges based on a justification defense.

Mr. Bongiorni, 69 years old of Burgettstown, spent one year incarcerated in the Washington County Jail awaiting trial under the theory of first degree murder. After a two-hour deliberation, the jury found Bongiorni not guilty in the fatal shooting of his daughter’s ex-boyfriend.

Had he been convicted, Mr. Bongiorni faced life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Mr. Del Greco is a shareholder of Dickie McCamey and Co-Chair of the Criminal Defense Group. He concentrates his practice in the areas of criminal and civil defense. He has enjoyed a thirty-year career full of distinguished clientele and high profile cases including professional athletes and elected officials.

Mr. Veverka possesses a decade of experience in criminal defense. Prior to joining Dickie McCamey, he served as an Assistant District Attorney in Allegheny County and earned his J.D. from the West Virginia University College of Law.
