Protecting Your Future

An arrest can change the course of a kid’s life—but it doesn’t have to. At M&R, we want the best result for juvenile clients now and in the future. Our representation is geared to preserving a child’s opportunity to go to school, to work, and to lead happy and productive adult lives. Every child deserves a second chance, and we work hard to ensure that our clients are given the opportunity to move past their mistakes and build a better future for themselves.

We understand that being accused of a crime is scary and stressful, especially for juveniles and their loved ones. That’s why we work hard to provide compassionate and understanding legal services that are tailored to meet the unique needs of our clients.

Juvenile Legal Services

Juvenile Defense – We provide effective representation for juveniles who are facing criminal charges, including drug offenses, theft, assault, and more. We work hard to protect your child’s rights and defend their case.

Expungement – We work to expunge records so juveniles can move past their mistakes and build a better future for themselves.

Juvenile Probation – We help juveniles understand and satisfy the terms of their probation.

Juvenile Court Proceedings – We provide guidance and support throughout juvenile court proceedings.

The juvenile justice system is unique and governed by specialized rules and procedures. Our juvenile justice attorneys know this system inside and out, having served as assistant district attorneys in Berks County. At every step of the way, a good criminal defense attorney can make a difference. They influence decisions that can have a profound impact on a child’s future, such as:

where a juvenile is housed pending the disposition of a case,

whether they are treated like a child or an adult,

whether a juvenile’s record gets expunged.

School & Campus Crime

We offer special services for juveniles charged with crimes on school grounds and campuses. We will represent juveniles in court and also in school-based or university-based disciplinary hearings. Without an advocate at school hearings, juvenile defendants can end up compromising their criminal case. What’s more, they can lose educational opportunities and fall prey to overzealous discipline.
