Hire A Juvenile Defense Attorney

Finding out your child has been arrested can be terrifying. You may wonder if they are okay. Were they hurt? What’s going on? You need answers — and you want to make sure your son or daughter is safe and protected. By law, your child has certain rights, including the right to legal counsel. However, it is in your child’s best interests to avoid retaining the services of the public defender. Though diligent, these individuals are overworked, often juggling hundreds of cases.

How a lawyer can help your child

The juvenile justice system is unique. You need a lawyer familiar with this battleground. Without proper counsel, your child may face criminal penalties. An experienced juvenile justice attorney understands the system, can explain the law to you in an accessible way and fights tirelessly for your son’s or daughter’s rights in court. With skilled counsel by your side, you may be able to have the charges against your child reduced or possibly dismissed.

Some of the most common juvenile offenses include:

  • Underage drinking
  • DWI
  • Vandalism
  • Petty theft
  • Assault
  • Computer crimes
  • Drug crimes
  • Curfew crimes
  • Sex crimes

How a juvenile crime conviction can affect your child’s future

If your son or daughter is convicted, they may face a number of penalties related to the specific crime, including license suspension, jail and community service. In addition, your child will have a criminal record. This can affect their ability to attend certain colleges and universities and qualify for scholarships. Furthermore, a juvenile crime may affect your child’s career path later in life.
