Juvenile Delinquency - Juvenile Detention - Expungement
Children make mistakes, and oftentimes, they don't have the maturity to appreciate how their actions can affect the rest of their lives. Some common misconceptions in juvenile cases are that juvenile offenses are not taken seriously and that they "fall off your record" once a person turns 18 years of age. This is simply not true. Juveniles are regularly waived into adult court for serious offenses. Further, juvenile convictions can have consequences such as mandatory sex offender registry reporting and/or firearms prohibitions that will continue into adulthood. We understand that a child's future may be at stake and will do whatever we can to protect that future.
Our Approach to Juvenile Crimes Representation
We treat representation in juvenile crime matters just as seriously as representation for adult crimes. We'll work to ensure that your child's rights are protected and that police and prosecutors follow proper procedures. Oftentimes, we may be able to obtain deferred prosecution agreements or consent decrees. With these arrangements, children may undergo counseling, pay restitution, and/or complete community service to avoid an adjudication of delinquency. These dispositions provide children with the services they need, as well as consequences for their actions so they can learn from their mistakes.
