Pennsylvania lawyers help minors avoid the adult criminal justice system

We have represented juveniles in state and their families in courts in a wide array of juvenile criminal and non-criminal cases, which have included:

  • Underage drinking

Our experience enables us to anticipate how judges, Children and Youth Services case workers and other attorneys may approach your case.  We have handled hundreds of cases involving juveniles.

Protecting future educational and employment prospects

If your child is being accused of, charged with or investigated in connection with a criminal offense, time is of the essence.  Delay can cause valuable legal advantages to be lost while you are waiting to secure legal representation.  We understand the severity of the situation and work diligently to ensure that your child’s mistakes don’t follow him or her into adulthood.  Our wealth of experience gives us a thorough understanding of the defense tactics to which juvenile courts and judges respond favorably.  We also pursue resolution options to prevent a youth from acquiring a criminal record that can limit future prospects.

Your personal guide and advocate

Our lawyers are aware of the sensitive nature of juvenile cases.  Because we truly care about our clients, we work to ensure your case is handled confidentially and discreetly.  Whether you are accused of child abuse, neglect, or family violence or are looking for legal help regarding the guardianship of a minor, our experienced attorneys are able advocates and guides.
