Philadelphia Criminal Defense Lawyer
When you are facing Philadelphia criminal charges there are likely to be a number of questions swirling in your mind. How serious are these charges? Could you end up in jail? How much will this cost you? Will your job be impacted? How will this affect your loved ones, your life, your future? Along with these questions, you may be feeling anxious, totally stressed out, frightened and you may be uncertain of what you need to do at this point to protect yourself. In fact, a criminal conviction—even for a relatively minor offense—can adversely affect your life and your future. You could be let go from your current job, and could later find it very difficult to obtain employment in your chosen field.
You may have been working toward a professional license, and find yourself unable to obtain that license. If you were considering going to college with a government loan, that option may now be closed to you. Depending on your crime, you may be unable to own a firearm, and you could even be unable to rent a home. Your conviction will be a matter of public information, meaning you could suffer embarrassment related to the offense, whether at work, among your family members, or in your church or other type of social group.
For all these reasons, it is imperative that you act quickly if you are charged with a Philadelphia criminal offense. The aggressive legal team at the Ciccarelli Law Offices will work hard on your behalf, always watching out for your rights and your future.

As the largest city in Pennsylvania, and the city with the sixth-highest population in the U.S., Philadelphia is known as the cultural and economic “anchor” in the Delaware Valley. The City of Brotherly Love was founded by an English Quaker, William Penn; the city played a major role in the American Revolution, as the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia in 1776. Philadelphia is considered a top international study destination because of the number of universities and colleges in the area, and is home to five Fortune 1000 companies. There are 67 National Historic Landmarks in the Philadelphia area, accounting for $10 billion tourism-generated dollars each year. Philadelphia is also the home of the first medical school, the first zoo, the first hospital the first library, the first Capital, the first stock exchange and the first business school, as well as the birthplace of the U.S. Marine Corps.
Unfortunately, Philadelphia has consistently ranked higher than the national average for criminal offenses, particularly violent crimes, and is among the dozen American cities which have more than a million residents. Philadelphia also has a relatively high poverty rate. High poverty rates often lead to an increase in criminal offenses, and an increase in incarceration rates.
