West Chester, Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Attorney


Scarpello & LaTour will ensure that your rights, future, and freedom are properly represented.

 

Facing criminal charges is terrifying. Your freedom, your future, and your good name are at risk. No one in the criminal justice system is on your side. The government is preparing to use its unlimited resources to stamp a conviction on your record that could land you behind bars and will affect you for years to come.

You’ve Been Arrested and Charged. Now What?

You may already be thinking that you now need to find a criminal attorney — someone who is a criminal case professional that can provide you with legal advice, guide you through the process, and advocate on your behalf. You don't want to be represented by any criminal attorney or a public defender. An internet search reveals many options, and you don’t know where to start. Subtle promises and innuendo in sales pitches leave you wondering how to make your decision.

 

But don’t make a mistake: the decision of which criminal defense lawyer to hire is the most crucial choice you face right now. The wrong selection might haunt you for the rest of your life. Will you choose the lawyer who flashes awards you’ve never heard of to impress you? The lawyer who tells you he’s the best because the web page he wrote says so? Or will you choose the experience? Will you choose the lawyer who takes your money, forgets about you, and shoves a plea deal down your throat at the last minute? Or will you choose a trial lawyer who will fight for the best possible outcome, while leaving the ultimate decision of what course to pursue up to you after giving you the facts and knowledge you need to make an informed decision?

 

Just as importantly, do you want a criminal lawyer or a lawyer who represents clients in all types of matters? Do you want to be represented by the lawyer who spends his week suing for car accidents, handling family law or domestic violence, filing workers’ compensation claims, writing wills, and trying to fit in some time to investigate your case and litigate your suppression motion? Or should you choose the lawyer whose practice is focused on criminal defense and criminal cases at the jury trial and appellate level?

Experienced Former Prosecutors Fighting For You and Protecting Your Rights

 

What sets us apart from most other criminal defense attorneys in West Chester is our willingness to try cases, even the most violent crimes. Some lawyers would try to force their client to accept any plea deal, rather than risk going to trial and losing the case. However, sometimes, you need to try a case to obtain the best outcome. If you can walk into a conference with the prosecutor, unafraid to go to trial, your leverage is immense.

 

Going to trial isn't always the best option. We can pick up the phone and negotiate favorable plea bargains on behalf of our clients in many cases. Our goal is to obtain the best outcome for our clients, whether it is a diversion program, a plea deal, or a trial. We'll make a recommendation to you based on our experience and the facts of your case. It will always be your call whether you want to go to trial.

 

Our Practice Areas Include:

  • DUI/DWI

  • Misdemeanor

  • Drug Crimes

  • Sex Crimes

  • Gun Charges

  • Homicide/Assualt

  • Personal Injury
