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.

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.
