If you have been charged with a criminal offense, you may think there are few things worse that could happen to you. You are likely anxious, stressed out, fearful for your future, and possibly even embarrassed, when you think of your friends, family members and co-workers finding out about your charges. Unfortunately, many people in this same situation make a critical mistake in their haste to put these charges behind them and try to get on with their lives. That mistake is deciding to plead guilty, and doing so without an experienced Parkesburg criminal defense attorney by their side. While your feelings are entirely understandable, this is a critical point in your life—one that can dictate how your future plays out.
Perhaps you did commit the offense but there were extenuating circumstances. Perhaps you were inebriated, or you simply made a bad decision. Or, perhaps you are entirely innocent of the charges.

Even if you are guilty of the charges, a knowledgeable Parkesburg attorney from the Ciccarelli Law Offices can negotiate lesser charges or a lesser sentence on your behalf. Remember that the outcome of these criminal charges can affect your ability to keep your current job or obtain a job in the future, attend college, rent a home, own a firearm, and even obtain a professional license.

Fighting for Success in Parkesburg PA
Originally known as Fountain Inn, the settled community of Parkesburg predates the Revolutionary War. When first settled, the area of Parkesburg was predominantly inhabited by Scottish-Irish settlers who migrated from Delaware. Parkesburg got its name from John G. Parke, a noted politician from a prominent family in the area. The small community expanded rapidly, particularly when the tracks of the Philadelphia and Columbia railroad were laid to Parkesburg in 1831. The Midwest, as a whole, was seeing a rapid industrial expansion, with more and settlers migrating to large urban areas such as Chicago, Cleveland and Pennsylvania, but in the early 1850’s educational institutions began opening up in the Parkesburg area.
The Great Depression brought tough times to Parkesburg, just as it did to the remainder of the nation, but when the Iron Mills closed, many of Parkesburg’s residents were out of work until they found employment in Coatesville at Lukens Steel. Despite its small size (4,000 population) and home town feeling, like every town, Parkesburg has its share of crime, although it scores a 69 from Neighborhood Scout for safety (with 100 being the best) when compared to other towns in the U.S. Even when crime rates are low, however, there are always those who desperately need an experienced Parkesburg criminal defense attorney who will fight hard on their behalf.
