I hired Mr. Peppetti on the recommendation of several friends, family and law enforcement officials. I found him to be knowledgeable of the law regarding DUI, he spelled out my options in a way I could clearly understand the ramifications of the decision I had to ultimately make, pointing out the pros and cons of each.. He spent plenty of time with me every step of the way through consults in person, over the phone and in 2 different court appearances. He explained the legal process to me, exactly what my charges were and what would happen. His fees were very reasonable, in fact I kept wondering when I was going to get the "Final" bill. I would not hesitate hiring Joel again. He was a very honest and caring young man.

Joel represented my daughter in a retail theft case and she was found not guilty. Joel was also hired for the expungement of the criminal charge. He did a terrific job with the case and was always available to talk. Also, he maintains a good relationship with local judges, which is important. I highly recommend Joel!

I was completely satisfied with Joel. He was very professional, and knowledgeable in this field he handled everything. I only had to make the mandatory appearances at court. Everything was completed that was ordered by the court and my record expunged without delay.
Thanks Joel; Job professionally done.

Joel made me feel so comfortable from the first time we talked on phone till the end of my nightmare. I'm from outside Altoona area and needed a lawyer for daughter's situation, Joel was like a brother taking care of his sister. Put me at ease on phone, never once had to drive the 4 hours to Altoona for pre court or court hearings, Joel handled it all and kept me informed as soon as hearings where over. If in Altoona area I HIGHLY recommend Joel D. Peppetti for his services!!!!!!!!

Joel is a very knowledgeable attorney! He was able to handle my divorce in a timely fashion. At anytime during the divorce, that I had questions, he was ALWAYS there for me. He returned any call that I ever made. He even gave me his personal cell phone number. During the time that Joel was taking care of my divorce, my fiancé needed an attorney for a harassment claim. She hired Joel! Her charges were dropped! WE cannot THANK YOU enough Joel for your services!!!! WE will recommend you to anyone seeking legal counsel! Thanks again......

I hired Joel several years ago for a ARD case while Joel was still working for Thomas Dickey. I paid the law firm $2,500.00 and then 6 months later I paid them another $750.00 for the expungement. In total I paid the law firm $3,250 in legal fees. I would find out later that their legal fees was priced high because I talked to other people that did ARD that paid a quarter of the amount of money that I paid. My biggest complaint is the lack of professionalism from Joel. He never returned phone calls. I call him three times in the span of two months but never received a call back. The secretary standard answer was "Joel is busy". From the time I paid him till the time I had my hearing several months later, I never talked to him!

Joel goes above and beyond the call of duty. He is well informed and knowledgeable. He researches, chronicles facts, and is well prepared in court. He even prepares for any unforeseen possibilities that may occur during the trial. Anyone looking for an exemplary, TRUSTWORTHY, professional attorney: Joel is your man. I am EXTREMELY lucky I hired him.

Because I am stupid I got a first offense DUI in Blair County a few years ago and I hired Joel Peppetti who at the time worked for the Dickey Law Office. Joel said since I was first time offender I could do the ARD program which I ended up doing. That program cost me about $1,500 in court fees plus $2,500 in attorney fees. A year later I successfully completed the program and I went back to Joel and he said great we can do a expungement that will cost you another $750.00 which again I ended up doing. Later on I got to talk to a few other people who got other attorneys in the local area who did their ARD/Expugnement for a lot less money. In fact I contacted other lawyers in the area which I should of done before I hired Joel and found out I could got the same thing done for anywhere between $500 to $1,200 for the ARD and $150 to $350 for the expugements. Why was Joels fees almost 3x times more then the other attorneys in the local area? Who knows? Joel made $3,250 to file some paper work, which I am sure his secretary did and show up to two hearings to plead me ARD. Moral of the story don’t drink and drive and if you need a attorney shop around and get some price quotes and as much legal advice as you can. Do not be like me and hire the first attorney you talk to.
