Attorney R. Anthony DeLuca has been working in the field of criminal justice since 1997. While he handles all variety of criminal defense cases, Mr. DeLuca focuses on helping clients facing charges involving DUI, involuntary manslaughter and white collar crimes such as embezzlement.

Prior to opening DRK Lawyers in 2005, Attorney DeLuca worked as an assistant district attorney for the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office.  During his time as a prosecutor, Mr. DeLuca handled a range of cases, including murder, robbery, assault, drug offenses, firearms offenses, embezzlement and much more. He also ran the Allegheny County Mental Health Court, handling cases for individuals with mental health concerns.

He decided to move away from prosecution and over to defense because he saw the need for experienced, quality representation for people in the criminal justice system. He knew he could provide that service, and that he would strive every day to do his best for each client who walked in his door.

Mr. DeLuca focuses on bringing a down-to-earth, personable approach to the practice of law. This is ever-present in how he interacts with his clients on a daily basis. What’s more, Anthony DeLuca makes sure that his clients know that he truly is on their side. He’s not here to judge you or treat you like a criminal. Instead, he’s here to take the intimidation out of the process to help.

In addition to focusing much of his time helping his clients, Anthony enjoys spending quality time with his wife and three children. He is a true sportsman, and takes any chance he can to get out kayaking, canoeing and white water rafting. He also travels every five years to run with the bulls. Ask him about those experiences sometime!

Mr. Ricciuti handled three different cases for my daughter. The outcome in each was much better than expected. Charges were withdrawn and now can be expunged. He was definitely a part of getting my daughter’s life back in order. - Jim, a criminal defense client 

A friend recommended Mr. Konieczka when my nephew was arrested. He had priors and was looking at jail time but Mr. Konieczka was our hero... he got the charges reduced. He was truthful and forthcoming with us throughout. If we had it to do over, we would hire him in a heartbeat! –Kathy, aunt of a client 

After dealing with Mr. DeLuca and his firm, I can say that I have never dealt with anyone more professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and trustworthy. They are by far the most understanding group of guys out there. - Aaron, a DUI client
