Chester County Criminal Lawyers

There are fewer things more stressful than getting charged with a crime. Our attorneys at Amato Sanita Law Office have helped criminal defense clients navigate through the Chester court system.

What a Chester Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Do for You
If you are facing any type of criminal charge in Chester, you have a lot to lose if you are convicted of the crime. This is especially true if you have been charged with a serious felony.

Serious crimes in Chester include robbery, murder, burglary, rape and manslaughter. For instance, getting convicted of a third-degree murder charge comes with a maximum prison sentence of 40 years.

In the United States, you are innocent of a crime until proven guilty. Regardless of the charge, you have the right to hire a lawyer to prepare a proper defense against the charges. A Chester criminal defense lawyer at Amato Sanita Law Office can:

  • Review and investigate the evidence in your case.
  • Organize the evidence to devise a proper defense for your case.
  • Negotiate with prosecuting attorneys for a lesser charge or plea deal (if beneficial).
  • Provide emotional support.
  • Give you access to important resources.

Should You Hire a Chester Criminal Defense Lawyer?
Whether you are charged with a misdemeanor or a felony in Chester, you have three options. You could use a public defender, represent yourself or hire a private attorney. Let’s take a closer look at your options.

Public defenders may seem like a good option for your criminal defense because you won’t have to pay for their services. However, many public defenders have full case loads. This can make it challenging for a public defender to devote the appropriate amount of time to your case.

Defending yourself against Chester criminal charges isn’t a good idea for a few reasons. It’s likely that you don’t know (or understand) how to interpret the laws. A court case involves tons of paperwork. It can be difficult for you to separate emotions from facts.

Hiring a Chester criminal defense attorney at Amato Sanita Law Office is a good option. We have a team of legal secretaries, paralegals and criminal defense lawyers who will work on your behalf. Our attorneys have graduated from reputable law schools. They understand Chester laws, Pennsylvania laws and the rules of evidence.

Before you make your decision, we invite you to contact our law office to consult with an attorney. The good news is the consultation won’t cost anything but a few moments of your time.

Types of Cases Amato Sanita Criminal Defense Lawyers Handle
In Chester, there are several categories for criminal charges. Fortunately, our team of skilled attorneys have represented defendants in a variety of practice areas.

  • Property crimes include arson, agricultural vandalism, criminal mischief, criminal trespassing, defiant trespassing and institutional vandalism.
  • Assault includes aggravated assault, simple assault, domestic violence, harassment, ethnic intimidation and reckless endangerment.
  • Drug charges include illegal possession of cocaine/heroine/ecstasy, possession with intent to distribute, Miss branding a controlled substance, possession of steroids, acquiring controlled substances by fraud and Schedule I/ Schedule II/Schedule III/ Schedule IV drugs.
