Juvenile Offenders: Trust Our Experienced Team of Defense Attorneys To Advocate For Your Child And Your Family

Juvenile court works differently than adult criminal court, but juvenile criminal charges must still be taken very seriously. We represent youths accused of everything from shoplifting to major felonies, including:

Many parents cling to the outdated notion that their child will get "kid glove" treatment or that a juvenile record disappears at age 18. Unfortunately, that is not the case. An adjudication of delinquency is the equivalent of a conviction, and can result in incarceration in a juvenile detention facility, and have lasting effects on your child's future. An adjudication of delinquency can affect your child's ability to complete high school, job prospects in adulthood, and eligibility for record expungement.

You need a sophisticated defense to counter the prosecution's version of events and to advocate for your child's future. You need to have all the facts before your child goes to court, and to have a defense team that understands the system and how to maneuver through the system to work in the best interest of your child.

If you have an older teen charged with a serious felony, you need an experienced criminal defense team who will fight to prevent your child from being prosecuted as an adult, which could lead to prison time and more severe, adult consequences.
