Perhaps you are not guilty of the crime you are being accused of, therefore, you do not believe you need an attorney.

Fighting for Your Freedom in Ardmore, PA
Ardmore, Pennsylvania is a city with a population of more than 13,000. As a suburb of Philadelphia, Ardmore was originally named Athensville in 1853, later renamed 1873 in 1873 by the Pennsylvania Railroad. Ardmore was originally part of the 40,000 acre “Welsh Tract,” given to a group of Welsh Quakers in 1681 by William Penn. After the Welsh settlers came and the mill industry began thriving along Mill Creek, a wave of Germans came, contributing their industrial skills, then the Irish came, adding their abilities and finding work in hotels and the lavish estates surrounding the area.
Initially, the conditions in Ardmore were difficult, with only horse and foot transportation available, dusty roads in the summertime, and muddy roads when it rained. Finally, the settlement of Lancaster led to a demand for an adequate highway from Philadelphia, and in 1796, the Lancaster Turnpike was built. The railways added to the expansion and prosperity of Ardmore, and in 1900, the Autocar Works relocated from Pittsburgh, attracted by nearby Philadelphia, good roads and a good labor supply. Between the years 2004 and 2006, the business district in Ardmore was involved in a hotly contested eminent domain battle.
The Save Ardmore Coalition—along with civic groups and local businesses—opposed an eminent domain program that would have involved demolition of historic buildings. The Ardmore battle was instrumental in prompting the Pennsylvania General Assembly to enact 2006 legislation, which restricts the use of eminent domain for private projects. Some of the notable people from Ardmore, PA, include Kobe Bryant, Basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers, Hap Arnold, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Air Forces, Kate Flannery, actress, Alexander Haig, U.S. Army General and United States Secretary of State, A. Atwater Kent, early radio manufacturer and philanthropist, and Mike Pedicin, American jazz bandleader.
