Protecting the Rights of Your Child

Some crimes are unique to juveniles, but they can also be charged with many of the same offenses as adults. We represent children and teens charged with crimes such as:

Our goal is to keep the juvenile from being found delinquent, which is the juvenile justice equivalent of a conviction. We also strive to keep juveniles from being tried as adults. This is possible with serious offenses against a person, drug crimes or when someone has a lengthy juvenile crimes history.

Many people do not realize that juvenile cases are not tried in front of a jury. Instead, a judge hears the case and makes a decision. It is critical that your child's lawyer has experience in juvenile court and knows how to present these cases to the judge. Our firm is prepared to fight for your child in the juvenile or criminal justice systems.
