Providing Quality Juvenile Criminal Defense in Pennsylvania

Posted By Patrick M. Rogan || 21-May-2009

Rogan Law dedicates significant resources to providing quality juvenile criminal defense to the children of northeast Pennsylvania and the Poconos. We do this not only because we strive to provide the best possible defense for each of our clients, but also because we understand that effective legal advocacy on our children's behalf strengthens our legal system and makes our communities safer.

Other leaders on juvenile criminal defense agree. In October 2003, the American Bar Association Juvenile Justice Center and the Juvenile Law Center in collaboration with the National Juvenile Defender Center and the Northeast Juvenile Defender Center published "Pennsylvania: An Assessment of Access to Counsel and Quality of Representation in Delinquency Proceedings."

This publication reports that the variable quality of criminal defense for juveniles statewide compromises our legal system and our public safety, and that many attorneys representing delinquent children do not meet the quality standards experts recommend.

The recent debacle in Luzerne County, in which the rights of hundreds of young people were violated for the profit of a corrupt few, illustrates the report's findings perfectly.

Minors accused of crimes in Pennsylvania need a lawyer who will act quickly and expertly. All Pennsylvania juvenile criminal defense attorneys are not the same, and they will not provide you with the same service and results that we will.

Rogan Law provides juveniles in northeast Pennsylvania and the Pocono Mountain region with the highest quality defense. Throughout Lackawanna County, Monroe County, Luzerne County, Pike County, Wayne County, Susquehanna County and Wyoming County, in Scranton, Stroudsburg, Wilkes-Barre, Milford, Honesdale, Montrose and Tunkhannock, families in need should call Rogan Law.
