Additional Information


If you have been charged with a criminal offense in Chester county, Pennsylvania, and the surrounding areas, including Delaware County, Lancaster County and Montgomery County, it is imperative to hire an attorney who has experience defending those accused of many types of criminal offenses who will help you achieve the best possible outcome in your particular situation.

When you, a family member or a colleague has been charged with a crime, you can count on me.  I will guide you through the criminal defense process and work for the best possible outcome. 

A person charged with a crime is often led to believe that he will receive favorable treatment from the police and/or the District Attorney if he cooperates in a criminal investigation without the right to counsel. Such a belief often leads to that individual unknowingly waiving certain rights which could assist him later in defending against the charges.

Although consulting a criminal defense attorney about the particular facts of your case is important to defend your criminal charge, this web site will provide you with general information about the law and the offense you were charged with, and other helpful post-arrest information.

Terence P. Ruf, Jr. can counsel you on the elements of your offense, potential punishments, possible defenses, and any other factors that may reduce your charges, or have them dropped altogether.  He can also aid you with legal options you may want to pursue after you have been convicted or arrested.
