About Kenneth

Learn Kenneth’s areas of practice.

AGGRESSIVE, DUI, CRIMINAL AND FAMILY LAW LITIGATOR. EVENING AND WEEKEND CONSULTS AVAILABLE BY APT.

       As you can see from my picture I am not your typical "suit and tie" lawyer.  I think of myself more of a blue collar everyman due to my upbringing and background, it just so happens that I went to law school and I totally enjoy what I do for a living.  

 

      My track record of results over the last decade of helping both the criminally accused and those involved in custody battles, or struggles with divorce, is something I look upon with great pride.  

 

      Despite the fact I graduated with honors from law school it was never my dream to work "for" other lawyers at a big law firm.  While other lawyers of my age and experience were researching the law for partners at law firms I was litigating and defending  the criminally accused in  large scale felony and misdemeanor prosecutions in front of judges and juries. Let my tenacity and experience go to work for you. 

 

     When you come see me at my law office, the first in office consult is always free. I will not judge because of the situation you may find yourself in.  I only want to help fight for you and be your advocate in the legal system in Northwest Pennsylvania, that I have spent the last decade navagating for your friends and neighbors.  I offer reasonable payment arraigments and I promise to be fair in my fees and work hard in your case as I realize it is the MOST important thing in your life when you come to see me. -- KB Esq. 

 

P.S. if your case does go to court do not worry I have a closet full of finely tailored suits I just prefer to not wear my uniform until it is game time.

Ken is a winner !
Ken represented me in regards to a serious felony a few years ago - due to his zeaolus advocacy from the time the judge set bond till the time he got my charges dismissed at the preliminary hearing he was there for me. The icing on the cake was when he got the insurance company to pay my claim, getting me every penny I was owed.

Very helpful, down to earth and will fight for you and your case.
I hired Kenneth for a criminal matter and the resolution of my case was beyond my expectations. Due to his hard work, I was able to avoid a single day in jail, which included Mr. Bickel going to the Erie Police Department, on a holiday weekend, to make sure I was treated fairly. This aggressive, young attorney will fight for you and your case like you a member of his family. Not only was I not incarcerated on a felony charge, I was not convicted and I will keep this matter off my permanent record.

Incredible attorney
Attorney Bickel from the initial consultation to the end of my divorce was handled exactly how it explained. He fought for me until the end and always treated me with utmost respect. I highly recommend him. He's a fighter with a strong personality. He gets the job done.
