I need an attorney licenced to take appeals to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court? It seems that my specific county has one choice only, the public defender!
I had an incompetent attorney for my DS, who was dishonest and not licenced for the area he undertook to practice on his behalf in!
My son has been adjudicated delinquent for a crime he did not commit, because the attorney said his only choice was to plead guilty to get a consent decree!
I never had a chance to prepare his defence as it was supposed to be a conference, not a hearing and disposition, and I have new evidence that proves my now 13 yr old son's bipolar is due to physiological deficits of his brain, he is not capable of being delinquent, nor of having intent, and his behaviors are a direct result of his disabilities. He did not commit the crime! But he said he did because he blurts out irrational fantasies that he is unable to control due to major problems with the frontal lobe and executive functioning.
Executive function deficits cut across many domains and impact all arenas of life—both academic and non-academic. Executive function deficits affect the child’s ability to organize, strategize, and plan, among other things. This is only one area of his deficit's!
You would be shocked to know the whole story of how he arrived at having this legal issue in the first place! Let's just say, the school district were the initial problem! There's not enough room here! Time is fast running out and the public defender won't return my calls! Please if anyone knows who can help me? To prove my child's innocence, I'd be very grateful! Feel free to email me also. TY.
