Of Counsel

William A. Fetterhoff concentrates his practice in federal and state criminal matters, in grand juries, trials, and appellate courts throughout Pennsylvania. He began his career in the Dauphin County Public Defender’s Office before entering private practice in Harrisburg. He also served as counsel to the Pennsylvania State Senate Law and Justice Committee.

The range of Mr. Fetterhoff’s cases includes complex public corruption and white collar offenses, including business and commercial crimes, environmental crimes, money laundering, tax evasion, bank fraud, health care reimbursement fraud under Medicare and Medicaid, and money laundering, as well as controlled substance, firearms, bank robbery, and other offenses. Mr. Fetterhoff also represents clients before the Pennsylvania State Ethics Commission and various state professional licensure boards.

Mr. Fetterhoff represented clients in the “Bonusgate” case, which charged public corruption in the Democratic Caucus of the PA State House of Representatives; the “Computergate” case, which charged public corruption in the Republican Caucus of the PA State House of Representatives; and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission case, which charged pay-to-play in state contracts. Mr. Fetterhoff was the only attorney to have had clients in all three of those cases of statewide significance. He has represented thousands of other clients in criminal matters throughout a legal career extending across more than 40 years.
