Phoenixville PA Criminal Lawyers
Phoenixville Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Attorney
If you have been arrested in Phoenixville PA on criminal charges—whether minor or more serious—you are likely to be going through many emotions right now. These emotions can run the gamut from anxious, stressed, frightened, even embarrassed. Whether you committed the criminal offense you are being charged with or not, other people generally hold the notion that if you were arrested, you must have committed the crime. This is certainly not true, but even so does not lessen your feelings. Perhaps you committed the crime, straight up, but you simply made a one-time bad decision.
Or, perhaps you committed the crime, however there are extenuating circumstances, and you need to tell your side of the story. You may also be actually innocent of the charges—not all that unusual, since innocent people are arrested, and even sentenced to jail or prison, a significant number of times each and every year. Regardless of your circumstances, you need an experienced, zealous legal team on your side—attorneys who are equally at home in the negotiation arena as they are in the courtroom. The attorneys at the Ciccarelli Law Offices will aggressively defend your rights—our Phoenixville criminal attorneys are on your side, and we have your back. Contact us by email or by phone at (610) 692-8700 or (877) 529-2422 when you need an experienced criminal attorney in Phoenixville PA.

Phoenixville went through an industrial heyday in the early twentieth century with iron and steel mills, a silk mill, a match factory, underwear and hosiery factories, the Phoenix Iron works, boiler works and the factory for the famous Etruscan majolica pottery.
