In re D.G.

The matter of In re D.G. involved a mother’s appeal from the Orphan’s Court order terminating her parental rights. The case is a companion of sorts to In re D.N.G., 230 A.3d 361 (Pa. Super. Ct. 2020) because D.N.G. and D.G. are siblings. The same attorney was appointed to represent each child’s legal interests, pursuant to 23 Pa.C.S. § 2313(a). The Superior Court held in In re D.N.G., and now in In re. D.G., that counsel failed to advocate for his client properly and, thus, the children did not have the benefit of their statutory right to counsel.
