Juvenile Delinquency

Our attorneys have represented hundreds of children in parents in juvenile court throughout Northampton, Lehigh, Carbon and Monroe and Philadelphia counties.  In fact, the juvenile courts have often chose to appoint us in complicated juvenile matters.  When your children's life's and well being are at stake, chose an attorney with experience.

 

What is Juvenile Court?

Juvenile Court can be divided into two separate and distinct types of proceedings; Juvenile Delinquency & Dependency.  The stated goal in both types of juvenile proceedings is to rehabilitate juveniles and/or their parents.  As compared to adult court proceedings, juvenile proceedings are often much more informal and may rely on a court appointed Hearing Master to make decisions rather than an elected Judge.

 

What is a Juvenile Delinquency Proceeding?

Juvenile Delinquency proceedings occur when a juvenile is accused of something that would constitute a crime if they were an adult.  Rather than being classified as crimes, these offenses are classified as delinquent acts and rather than the District Attorney's office filing a criminal complaint, they may file what is called a petition to adjudicate the child delinquent.

 

While is adult court the Commonwealth need only prove that a person committed a crime, in juvenile court the Commonwealth must prove not only that but that the juvenile is also in need of rehabilitation.
