Defense Strategies to Avoid a Juvenile Record

We use a systematic approach to the defense of juveniles. First, we try to keep the child from being prosecuted as an adult. Second, we defend a juvenile crimes just as we defend an adult. We will try to get charges reduced or dismissed, and we always strive to have illegally obtained evidence suppressed.

Not only must your child be defended, but many times he or she needs intervention so that problematic behavior does not happen again. We can refer your child for services such as counseling, therapy or other services that may help them get back on the right path without a criminal record that may haunt them for the rest of their life.
