Protecting the Rights and Future of Youthful Offenders
As an experienced juvenile defense lawyer, I am focused on protecting the rights and future of a minor charged with a juvenile crime. While youthful offenders commit many of the same crimes as adults, juvenile cases can be addressed by either the juvenile courts or the criminal courts, depending on the age and severity of the crime. I can provide tough tactical representation in a full range of crimes committed by minors, such as:
Shoplifting or theft
Other Juvenile Offenses
A Mistake Shouldn't Ruin a Child's Life
Minors are at a very vulnerable stage in their lives. A juvenile conviction can cause the individual to continue on a downward path and commit more serious crimes in the future. Justice is not served by locking teens up or giving them a permanent criminal record that will follow them through their lives. I am dedicated to preserving the minor's interests so that he or she may live a productive life without future interaction with law enforcement or the criminal justice system. If your minor child has been charged with a juvenile crime, please contact my office to schedule a free consultation with an experienced juvenile lawyer.
