I had a legal issue from my past that I thought was taken care of only to discover that I had a warrant for my arrest. I had no idea what to do so I contacted Mrs. Vecchiarelli and she calmly walked me through the process and explained everything to me. Just in that first phone call with her I knew she was a lawyer who really wanted to help her clients get through what is a stressful situation. I made an appointment to meet and once the details were worked out and she was hired she got my warrant recalled that day and had me scheduled for court. She was amazing making sure everything was done as fast as possible and always asking if I understood the process and if I agreed with everything before moving onto the next step. In the end she wrote out a great motion to have my case thrown out and the D.A and Judge agreed and dismissed my case. She was amazing and I would recommend her to anyone who needs legal assistance. Thank you Sally Vecchiarelli

Sally Vecchiarelli is a smart, energetic, professional attorney that I would recommend to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney.
I found Sally online while a looking for a juvenile defense attorney for my son. She was also recommended by a drug counseling center that my son had attended. I met with Sally for a consultation and hired her the same day. Her passion for juvenile law was obvious and for me was the deciding factor in hiring her.
Having no experience with the justice system, my husband and I wanted someone not only to defend our son but walk us through the process as we went. The case went on for over a month, with a hearing nearly every week. Sally made numerous, lengthy visits to our son to discuss the case and determine what outcome would be in his best interest. She met with us before each hearing to let us know what to expect in court that day and again after the hearing to let us know the next step. Between hearings, Sally was in contact with me by phone and email, letting me know what she was working on and keeping me updated on her communications with the DA. She was always quick to respond any time I had a question or concern. Sally went far beyond her duty as an attorney, even researching how the charge would affect our son in the job and college application process. The resolution of the case was what Sally had been working toward and what we had hoped for. The main charge against our son was suspended with the chance to have it dismissed at the end of the probationary period and he was admitted into the juvenile substance abuse program.
Two months later when our son was charged with a violation of probation, we hired Sally again. Since the violation would have reinstated the main charge, she fought to keep the violation from being enforced. Thanks again to Sally's hard work in researching the circumstances of the violation and presenting it to the court, the judge agreed to not enforce the violation.
We can never thank Sally enough for all of her hard work on behalf of our son. The justice system is complicated and confusing and having Sally with us throughout the process was very reassuring. I would not hesitate to hire Sally again and I recommend her to anyone looking for a great criminal defense attorney.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I had the opportunity to work together with Sally in a domestic violence case. She was knowledgeable regarding the criminal penalties our client was facing and was able to competently advise the client so as to place him in the best possible position for our custody/dissolution matter. I look forward to working with her in the future.
