Juvenile Correction and Rehabilitation
A juvenile conviction can have long-term consequences for your child. Your child could face time in a juvenile correctional facility until the age of 21. The criminal record, depending on the charge, could also follow your child around for the rest of his or her life.
If your child has been charged with a juvenile crime, you need experienced legal counsel. At the law firm of Curcillo Law, we have extensive experience defending juveniles from criminal charges. Attorney Joseph A. Curcillo III served for 11 years as a juvenile hearing examiner in Dauphin County. Attorney Bret Palmer Beynon is a former prosecutor who handled juvenile crimes. We have dedicated our careers to protecting children in the Courts.

Focus on Treatment and Rehabilitation
In juvenile court, unlike the adult system, there is a strong focus on rehabilitation and treatment. At our firm, we will work to get your child the support he or she needs and work to avoid placement in a correctional facility.
In Pennsylvania, a juvenile placed in a juvenile corrections facility could remain there until the age of 21, even if the same crime would result in a shorter sentence for an adult. If your child is over the age of 14 and convicted of a serious felony, such as rape or a violent crime, your child's record could be open to the public and visible to potential employers and schools.
It is important to have an experienced attorney by your side. Our attorneys know what is at stake for your child. We will explore every option to protect your child's future.
