Your Child Has The Right To A Defense
We Will Vigorously Argue Your Child’s Case To The Judge
Juveniles can be charged with any crime, but some of the most common include:
- Underage DUI/DWI
- Minor in possession
- Drug possession
- Speeding and other traffic violations
- Sex crimes
We have an incredible amount of experience in this area and can handle any crime your child is facing. We will fight to keep the case in the juvenile justice system where the focus is primarily on rehabilitation, not just punishment. In certain circumstances in serious cases, the prosecutor may try to get the case moved to adult court. You do not want your child tried in the adult criminal justice system, which is much more punitive and where prison is an option. We have extensive trial experience in this unique area and will fight hard to obtain the best result possible so the consequences to your child are alleviated or minimized.
The most serious consequence in the juvenile justice system is detention in a youth facility. My goal is to keep your child out of detention; probation or home arrest is a better option. When possible, however, we will strive to get the charges reduced or dismissed. If there are underlying issues such as substance abuse, we will assist your family in getting your child the professional help he or she needs.
