  • Robert Patrick Link

    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.

  • Brian M. Fishman

    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.
