About Me

Carina Laguzzi was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina but raised in Arlington, Virginia from age five. While attending elementary, junior, and high schools in Arlington, she simultaneously attended The Argentine School of Washington, D.C. in Potomac, Maryland. As a result, Ms. Laguzzi remains totally bilingual in Spanish and English. Ms. Laguzzi attended both George Mason University (Fairfax, Virginia) and New College in Oxford University (Oxford, England), and then matriculated at Boston University School of Law. Upon graduation, Ms. Laguzzi settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where she continues to live and work. As an Assistant District Attorney, Ms. Laguzzi was personally responsible for thirty to sixty cases daily; including those ranging from narcotics to more technical crimes such as, driving under the influence (DUI) and those with more emotional and sensitive issues, like domestic violence. After leaving the District Attorneys Office, Ms. Laguzzi worked in civil litigation participating in the areas of products liability, medical malpractice, and insurance defense. Thereafter, she opened her own practice. Ms. Laguzzi now concentrates primarily on criminal defense, at the state and federal levels. Ms. Laguzzis criminal defense practice covers all areas of criminal law both state and federal. Clients have charges ranging from less serious misdemeanors to major felonies, including homicides. Her experience, both as a prosecutor and a criminal defense attorney, allows her to give the best advice to those facing criminal charges. This includes specialized advice as to whether to consider a favorable non-trial disposition or proceed to a trial by jury. Ms. Laguzzi has been involved in teaching other attorneys about criminal law in Continuing Legal Education (CLEs) Programs. She has also appeared on "Its Your Call" with Lynn Doyle and has been interviewed by the Philadelphia Inquirer regarding the effect and impact of scientific and forensic evidence on juries.

Testimonials

  • Experienced Lawyer for those Serious about their Defense.
    Carina is the epitome of professionalism in the courtroom. Her demeanor has always been kind, straightforward and frank with me about everything I was about to experience and expect. Her experience in the courts gives her an edge that many lawyers only dream of attaining after a lifetime of trials. She has been very helpful at every stage of my trial, leaving nothing to chance. Carina holds a passion for her work and it shows in her courtroom style. Unlike other lawyers that I have had experience with Carina showed me genuine compassion and offered myself and my family quality advice on my situation and its' implications for my life.

    I know that even in tough economic times one is tempted to price shop for lawyers and that may mean sacrificing experience for the sake of price. Believe me when I tell you that when it comes to criminal matters and being a defendant, you do not want to decide on price but on quality of service. When I think of quality of service in legal matters, I think of Carina. If you need someone at your side in a courtroom, Carina is in my opinion not only the best option, but one of the wisest decisions you can make!
