Juvenile Defense

“No parent is prepared for the nightmare of having your child go through the juvenile justice system. It is not unheard of for a good child to go into the juvenile court system, be sentenced to detention, and come out with worse behavioral problems than when they went in. That’s why I take these cases very seriously and devote more time to them than any other case I handle. I work closely with parents to ensure that their children are treated fairly and that they do not end up a tragic statistic. Do not let your children go through this alone. You’ve taken care of them their entire lives. Let me take care of them now.”

We Are Aggressive

Almost all of our attorneys are former prosecutors or have worked in prosecution offices. We have seen the system from the other side and understand what prosecutors are looking for. In the juvenile system, the prosecution is, or at least should be, just as worried about the defendant, called the respondent in juvenile court, as they are about the victim. In working closely with the prosecution and with the probation officer assigned to the juvenile at the outset of the case, we can reach a resolution that everyone is happy with. Much of the time, we can prevent the charges from even getting to court if our firm is retained early enough.

We Are Reliable

We offer payment options and reasonable rates for our juvenile criminal cases.

Juvenile cases are extremely time sensitive and court dates typically cannot be rescheduled to fit an attorney’s schedule. You must hire an attorney early in your case to allow them maximum time to prepare for the first appearance.
