The 22nd Annual Child Advocate
of the Year Award to Delaware
County Court of Common Pleas Judge
Nathaniel C. Nichols, Media
HARRISBURG (April) -
The Pennsylvania Bar Association (PBA)
Children's Rights Committee is proud to
present the 22nd Annual Child Advocate
of the Year Award to Delaware County
Court of Common Pleas Judge Nathaniel
C. Nichols of Media.
Judge Nichols has been serving as
the primary judge for both Juvenile
Dependency Court and Juvenile
Delinquency Court in Delaware County
since his election in 2011. Prior to that,
he was associate dean of students and
a professor at Widener University School of Law, an attorney
in private practice and managing attorney at Delaware County
Legal Assistance Association.
Judge Nichols' award nominations noted the attentiveness,
respect and dignity he has shown to children, families and
stakeholders involved in dependency hearings, as well as the
many independent visits he has made to placement facilities
and child welfare providers across the state to gain better
understanding. One nominator applauded his "civility and
respect for all, his kindness with children and his willingness to
go the extra mile."
A supporter of creating a calm and comfortable environment
in the courtroom for children and families, Nichols was pivotal
in bringing therapy dogs from Paws for People, a nonprofit pet
therapy organization, to Delaware County courts for Juvenile
Court hearings.
