Chester County School Crimes Attorney
Look for an aggressive, experienced Chester County Criminal Defense Lawyer when you or your high school age child is facing either adult criminal charges or juvenile crimes, court action or have questions on the implications of a citation, a charge or criminal complaint on their criminal record, school record and how it could impact them graduating, going to college or getting a job.
Do not under estimate the impact a citation, a criminal charge or even traffic tickets can have on your children and how a conviction or guilty plea or paying the fine can impact their future.
A Criminal Charge Just Does Not Go Away Because You Turned 18
Of course, it would be great if criminal charges, citations and traffic tickets automatically self-destructed when an individual turned 18 but that is not the case. We live in a transparent society with little privacy. The time to speak with an experienced criminal defense lawyer is as soon as you receive notice that your son or daughter is facing adverse action, a notice of a hearing, summons or detention for either a minor or major offense including but not limited to underage drinking, fake ID, traffic offenses, speeding ticket, or retail theft, marijuana possession or drug paraphernalia or breaking and entering or harassment or simple assault; that offense is processed and available online at the Pennsylvania portal.It is important to know that whether your child is facing Juvenile charges or a juvenile adjudication of delinquency in Juvenile Court; or adult criminal charges or summary or traffic charges, the charges can remain on their record after they turn 18.
In some cases, a parent does not learn about their child’s summary or traffic offenses until after the high school student tries to pay the fine and does not realize that they are pleading guilty. In the case of some traffic and non-traffic offenses (underage drinking) the charges can come with mandatory fines and loss of driving privileges. Even if they have already pled guilty to a summary offense, we can often help by filing a summary appeal or Appeal Nun Pro Tunc within thirty (30) days of them paying the fine.

We are based in West Chester in the greater Philadelphia area and represent high school students throughout southeastern Pennsylvania when the need the help the most.
You and your parents have spent good money and time investing in your future. Make sure that you are not the victim of a constitutional infringement such as an illegal stop or illegal search or violation of your Miranda’s rights. It is important to know your rights before you plead guilty to a drug possession charge such as a small amount of marijuana or accept a plea to charges such as underage drinking or drunk driving (DUI).
