I recently went through a devastating period in my life where I was charged with 2 felony charges and a misdemeanor related to my business. I turned to a friend who is a well respected prosecuting attorney and asked who the best defense attorney is in the area...without hesitation she said Joel Peppetti. The prosecuting attorney said that he was the most prepared, the most knowledgeable, and will research the facts of your case. I immediately made the call to Mr. Peppetti's office and I am so grateful that I did. I appreciated Joel's professionalism throughout my case. He was very patient in letting me explain the circumstances of my case. He was very straight forward, he never over promised, didn't "sugar coat" anything. I was concerned with the legal fees I was going to incur, but Joel was very honest with his fees. He explained how the fees would be assessed, and there were no hidden charges. Even after paying my legal fees to his office, I needed additional appointments to discuss my case. Joel met with me without charging me additional fees. The best news of all is that, through his legal expertise, I reached an agreement with the Commonwealth of PA to dismiss my felony charges, and plead "no contest" to the one misdemeanor. Even though this event was horrible and turned my life upside down, I will always be forever grateful to Attorney Joel Peppetti and his staff!

We highly recommend Joel to anyone seeking legal representation. Upon learning that our son, who was a freshman at PSU Altoona, had been arrested and charged with drug offenses we were devastated. Not being from Altoona and having never had the need to retain an attorney we were completely lost as to how to protect our son. Through a series of references we were introduced to Joel. He immediately took our case, calmed our fears and gave us hope for a positive outcome. Joel was true to his word. Our son has returned to college full-time while working part-time. We were amazed at the care and attention Joel paid to us. He was responsive, sensitive to our fears, articulated every step of the process & his approach and coached us. We truly felt that Joel had our best interest at heart.

Joel represented my son and he was found not guilty by Intervention in Lieu of Conviction. Joel will be hired for the expungement of his criminal charges. He did a terrific job with the case and was always available to talk and explain the process. Also, he maintains a good relationship with local judges, which is important. I highly recommend Joel!

I wholeheartedly endorse Joel Peppetti. He is one of the finest practioners in the entire State. Joel has a reputation for being fierce and aggressive in the courtroom yet compassionate and supportive of his clients outside the courthouse. If you or a loved one are arrested in Altoona, you are truly missing out if you don't consult with him and utilize his talents.

It gives me great pleasure to endorse attorney Joel Peppetti. He is a top-notch trial attorney who primarily focuses on criminal defense and family law matters. While his office is in Blair County, he handles matters throughout Central Pennsylvania. I have referred clients to him in the past and will continue to do so based on his zealous representation and protection of individuals' constitutional rights. If you or a loved one need a criminal defense attorney in Blair, Cambria, Bedford, Huntingdon or other Central Pennsylvania counties, your first call should be to Mr. Peppetti. You will not be disappointed.
