recomendation
Steve was very helpful in regards to navigating me through the entire procedure. I don't feel that my case would have ended in the successful outcome that it did if it wasn't for him. There were unexpected roadblocks the common DUI client does not come up against, and he proved to be quite resourceful. I would recommend Steve to anyone who is in need of representation and his rates were very reasonable.

Excellent experience - highly recommend
I would highly recommend Mr. Steve Jarmon. When I first met him he was very professional and knowledgeable. He explained my charges and the different scenarios if I was found guilty. He was upfront and honest when I asked him for his thoughts on my case and the chances of getting the charges dismissed. Mr. Jarmon was confident about my situation, but also explained what the next steps would be if they were not dropped. While I was very nervous and upset, Mr. Jarmon remained composed and proficient in his work, which I appreciated. This being my first offense, he was able to get my charges dropped completely. Mr. Jarmon was very patient and understanding and walked me through this process, which without his help would have been a nightmare. Again, I highly recommend hiring Mr. Jarmon.

Murder
Steven Jarmon, recently represented my sister’s son and was able to prove to the jury that my nephew was innocent of murder, robbery and other major counts. He did an excellent job! He was found not guilty on all counts! When my sister asked him the Friday in which the jury would give their verdict if he would eat lunch, he replied “I’m not eating; When your fighting for somebody’s life you can’t eat! This is war!”

Best of the Best!!!
Steve once again represented me for a case which originally had 32 charges, 14 of which were felonies, and got me the deal of a lifetime. No jail time and no felonies in the final decision. Once again, Steve made the impossible very possible with his knowledge and expertise. Thank You again Steve. Very kind and friendly service as well. Highly recommended!! Matthew A.

Sooo appreciative!
I was beyond upset after getting a DUI. I was working with another attorney but after meeting with Steve I decided that Id rather have him handle my case and I am SO glad that I did. Steve answered every one of my frantic emails and calls right away and went above and beyond in answering every question I had. I felt so much more confident knowing that Steve was representing me but I still did not want to get my hopes up; the charges were quite bad and I was not expecting a good outcome. I was so shocked and appreciative when Steve was able to get my DUI plead down to a lesser charge so that I didn't have to lose my license, and would be able to get to and from work without any hassle. I could not be happier with the outcome and owe it to Steve.

Light in a Dark Place
I found myself in a situation I did not think I would ever be in. It was by far a nightmare. But I am grateful for Steve because he was a light in a dark place. When I had questions he had answers. When I needed to meet one on one he was available. He was receptive of questions and concerns via text, email or phone call. I appreciated his professionalism, and attention to my case. He walked with me and my family until the very end of the matter. I felt well represented and advocated for. He was in my corner and I knew it! In the end I won my case and now I can move forward with my life. I am eternally grateful for the law office of Steve Edward Jarmon, Jr.

Criminal Defense: Simple Assault Case
I was involved in an incident with my uncle within the Summer of 2013 for protecting the condition of my father whom is currently deceased. While my uncle was consistently and excessively striking my father, I struck my uncle once in order to remove him from my father. My uncle was violating his probation as my father previoulsy issued a restraining order against my uncle regarding abuse as my uncle was not suppose to be residing or be near the residence of my grandmother. When the confrontation concluded, my uncle lost two of his front teeth and he pressed charges on me based on a story he fabricated to make it seem as though my father and I attacked him and were the primary perpetrators. Eventually, my uncle filed charges on my deceased father and I for Simple Assault and Harrassment. However, I contacted Steve Jarmon in order to obtain his legal representation services for this specific case as I reviewed several of the comments and reviews that former clients has left him throughout his Avvo profile, which were magnificent. Overall, Mr. Jarmon was able to defend me in ways that were unimaginable to me as I've been nervous throughout this entire ordeal. In the end, Mr. Jarmon had the charges and case completely dismissed and I applaud his work ethic and professionalism. I would highly recommend Mr. Jarmon to anyone seeking legal representation.

Steve is the hardest working lawyer in PA
I worked with Steve Jarmon on a case where I was facing multiple felony charges. Steve was able to get some charges dropped as well as get all my felony charges dropped to misdemeanors. For any criminal defense cases I would highly suggest Steve to represent you.

When your permanent residence is located on one coast
When your permanent residence is located on one coast and you need legal services three thousand miles away, it's like driving in fog with zero visibility. However, the staff at Ciccarelli law services in West Chester, PA. was extremely resourceful during my desperate need of legal advice. I must admit, recognizing Ciccarelli's law firm was over 80 miles away from Harrisburg, PA. caused some reservation. But after an initiate conversation with Lee Ciccarelli, I moved forward process. Ciccarelli's office staff were professional and recorded and convey messages to my attorney Steve Jarmon in a precise and prompt manner. My son was recently arrested in Harrisburg, PA. His mom and I were totally shocked when we received the news. After discussing this devastating information, my daughters and I launched a search via internet for much needed legal advice. As parents, we realize the possibility for our children making bad decision, but not as criminals. For this reason, I retained the services of Steve Jarmon through Ciccarelli's law firm to guide us during this unfortunate experience. Mr. Jarmon proceeded promptly gathering information and filing motion on my son's behalf. Steve was professional and communicated almost daily with my family. When I called the law firm for status updates regarding the case, the staff either located Mr. Jarmon or presented me with his availability. He always returned my calls. Mr. Jarmon clearly explained all the steps in this process. As a result of Mr. Jargon's work, charges for my son were dropped after the first trip back to Harrisburg, PA from the west coast. Finally, I was impressed how Mr. Jarmon presented himself before the judge. Reflecting on this entire situation, even though we found Ciccarelli's law service through the internet, I will definitely utilize their services AGAIN if needed.

I utilized Steve's services for my son's case a few months ago.
I utilized Steve's services for my son's case a few months ago. I live on the other side of the country and was dealing with a very trying time for my son and my family. Steve put all of my worries at ease and was able to successfully work with the court to allow my son to move beyond what had happened and restart his life. I would recommend Steve Jarmon to anyone in need.

Finding hope from devastation and trust from betrayal.
My DUI case would be my third. I had two previous lawyers who took my money, never called me back and wanted the easy buck through no work and plea bargains. I found steve with one last and final shot with finding an attorney that takes pride in his work and my life. Even on weekends he has answered my anxiety ridden emails with a comforting ear. He never made promises like the others, just took immediate action. My trial is coming up in two weeks after one full yr since the incident. I feel prepared and in the best possible hands I could be in. His professionalism is only surpassed by his honesty and true heartfelt compassion. Teresa Parker
