Local Defense Attorney Joins Big Firm To Open Beaver County Branch

For 25 years, Stephen Colafella has represented local headline-making clients including former Ambridge Police Chief James Mann, businessman Frank Catroppa, NFL star Terrelle Pryor, prison guard Harry Nicoletti, and Jordan Brown, whose conviction was overturned in 2018 after being accused of killing his father’s fiancee and her unborn child in 2009 when he was 11 years old.

Now, Colafella has joined Tucker-Arensberg’s litigation group as its first partner in a new criminal defense practice. He will share his offices with Bart Wischnowski, a prosecutor who left the DA’s office after eight years to join the new venture.
