juvenile defense

On average, 6% of juveniles will find themselves charged with an offense that leads to their involvement in the juvenile defense system.

The courts of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have devised a system that is different from the adult criminal justice system in many critical respects. My extensive experience in the juvenile defense arena is extremely beneficial to my juvenile clients and their families, and includes:

  • Serving for a year and a half as a prosecutor in the juvenile courts
  • Co-authoring a book entitled “Pennsylvania Juvenile Delinquency”, published by Bisel Press. This book is a comprehensive overview of the juvenile defense system and was written to provide critical information to lawyers, probation officers and juvenile police.
  • A pre-legal background in the field of mental health services that informs my practice and compels me to take a comprehensive approach to juvenile crime

My goal, as always, is to minimize the negative consequences of a prosecution and to work with families addressing problems which may be behind aberrant juvenile behavior.
