An Experienced Ally For You And Your Child
Typically, the goal of the juvenile justice system is to rehabilitate young offenders and steer them in a better direction. This often results in sentences that include probation, house arrest, community service, fines, educational classes and counseling. However, young offenders can still face harsh penalties, including time in a juvenile detention center or a potential prison term if they are charged as an adult.
Our skilled attorneys have helped young people and their families work through a variety of legal charges, including:
- Alcohol possession and underage drinking
- Graffiti and vandalism
- Physical altercations resulting in assault charges
- Shoplifting and petty theft
- Possession or use of drugs
Whatever the charge, we have the knowledge and experience to guide parents and their children through the process and seek a positive outcome.
