We Are Proud to Fight for Your Rights
Let Us Help You Today

If you are facing criminal charges, you are facing the possibility of losing your liberty if sent to prison. You also face the possibility of losing money through the steep fines that often come from a conviction. You could lose privileges like your ability to drive. You could also lose opportunities in the future due to a criminal record, including opportunities for employment, education, housing and loans.

Thanks Lee for your efforts on behalf of my family. You and your entire team are true professionals! I will be glad to recommend you to any of my friends who have issues needing legal representation in Pennsylvania. Take care. Good luck and Godspeed!

Great job. Thanks for not give up and working with me and my family.

They handled everything in a very prompt and highly professional manner. Also, when it came to any questions I had, he always succeeded in giving me thorough explanations and made sure to keep me in the loop one hundred percent of the way. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing representation.

The attorneys at Ciccarelli Law Offices really put all their effort into defending our son. The outcome was better than we expected and they kept us informed about the case and handling of the legalities that often are very confusing. We would not hesitate to recommend them as a team or individually.

We were very happy with the outcome of my case. After speaking with Lee and Steven, my wife and I felt confident. Initially this was a criminal case, was later reduced to a traffic violation.

Ciccarelli Law Offices was instrumental in my DUI case. Their tireless efforts, professionalism and overall dedication to me and my family ensured acceptance into the ARD program. I felt confident in their abilities and having their representation in the courtroom proved to be an invaluable asset. Again, I thank them and this office for the support provided throughout the proceedings.
