Fighting for Your Future in Exton PA
Exton is a town in Chester County—one of Pennsylvania’s three original counties—with a population of around 5,000. Like many Pennsylvania towns, Exton was settled by Quakers who sailed to the New World to practice their religion in peace. Soon, immigrants from Wales, Ireland and England settled along the rivers of Chester County. Milling was the county’s first industry, due to the abundant sources of water power. The town of Exton lies at the intersection of U.S. Route 30 and Pennsylvania Route 100. Exton was a major transportation route between Philadelphia and the west in the late 18th century.
Today, the overall crime rate in the town of Exton is 81 percent lower than the national average, making the town 86 percent safer than other cities of similar size in the U.S. Exton is home to one of the seventeen Chester County Magisterial District Courts which handle criminal cases. If you are arrested in Exton, you will likely appear before the judge at the Chester County Magisterial Court on 75 East Uwchlan Avenue. If you find yourself in the unenviable position of being arrested in Exton Pennsylvania, your first call should be to an experienced Exton criminal defense attorney who will fight for your rights and your future.
