If your child has been charged with a juvenile offense in Pennsylvania, you are probably feeling anxious and overwhelmed. You are worried not only about the upcoming hearing, but also about your child’s future. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the case, you need to consult a qualified juvenile attorney to give your child the best possible chance in court.
About Juvenile Offenses in Pennsylvania
When a minor is accused of a crime in the state of Pennsylvania, he or she will typically be tried in juvenile court. Juvenile court differs from adult court considerably. Instead of facing hefty fines or imprisonment after of a conviction, juveniles convicted of crimes will face much lighter punishments. Possible punishments for juvenile offenses range from verbal warnings to time in a juvenile detention center.
Even though the punishments for juvenile offenses are not as severe as the consequences for a conviction as an adult, juvenile convictions can still affect your child’s life negatively. Not only will he or she face an immediate punishment from the court, but the offense will also be included on a permanent record that, without expungement, follows the child even after he or she becomes an adult. For this reason, it is in your best interest to do everything you can to avoid convictions in juvenile court.

I have known Mrs. Jubelirer personally for over 15 years. I knew that she practiced law and was never in need of a lawyer until my son at the age of 16 was wrongfully charged with a crime he did not commit. First, I consulted with Mrs. Jubelirer just to get some guidance on our situation she was more than helpful. I then hired her to be our Attorney and she worked very diligently to make sure that the law was being followed and the case against my son was fairly judged. The legal process took over 9 months and Mrs. Jubelirer always kept me and my son up to date on all issues and court dates. She was very fair and reasonable with payment also. At the end of it all my son was found not guilty of his charge due to the hard work and stating the facts of the law statutes. I hope that I will not need Mrs. Jubelirer services again but if I did I would most definitely hire her in a heartbeat.
