Defending Your Rights And Seeking The Truth


At the Law Office of Joel D. Peppetti, P.C., we work to protect your rights and your reputation. Your future and your reputation are in jeopardy when you are charged with a misdemeanor or felony criminal offense. If you are convicted of the charges, the judge may impose a sentence of incarceration in the county jail or in state prison. You may also be ordered to serve a term of probation or parole and pay a substantial amount of court costs and fines. More importantly, a conviction will most likely result in a lifetime criminal record. On the other hand, a pretrial diversionary program, a dismissal of the charges or an acquittal following a jury trial will provide you with a second chance and preserve your future.

Find an experienced criminal law attorney to aggressively defend you. The ultimate goal in every criminal defense matter is a dismissal of all the charges filed against you and the expungement of your record. Attorney Peppetti will review each and every piece of evidence in the case and then advise you to either negotiate an agreement with the prosecutor or to pursue a trial. There are different avenues to a favorable outcome depending on the specific facts of your case. For example, if the police conducted an illegal search and seizure, a motion for suppression of evidence may be available to you. Every case has different facts and every case has a different possible defense. The Law Office of Joel D.
