Chester County Criminal Defense Lawyers

Protecting Your Rights in Pennsylvania

A criminal conviction can be a life-altering experience. Your future could be at risk, and your dreams could be deferred or dashed. Being arrested for a crime can be an extremely frightening experience, especially if you’re innocent. The criminal justice system can be scary, especially if you don’t know what to expect. The Chester County criminal defense attorneys at Testa & Pagnanelli, LLC, can help you navigate the choppy terrain and provide insight into your charges and what you can expect moving forward. When facing criminal charges, hiring a defense attorney is strongly advised. Your attorney will work hard to develop an effective case strategy to ensure you don’t arrive to court without a prepared defense. While your attorney can’t promise you a positive outcome, your best chance to avoid stiff penalties and fines is to retain legal counsel as soon as you’re charged with a crime. Don’t answer questions and ask for a lawyer immediately!
