Types of Juvenile Offenses We Represent

Because penalties for minors tend to be less severe than for adults, some mistakenly assume child arrests are nothing to worry about. While juvenile crimes are typically tried in the juvenile court system with a focus on restoration vs. punishment, this does not mean these crimes are taken lightly. An aggressive prosecutor will push for strong punishment, and some judges may cooperate in order to send a message. It is vital that you have equally tenacious defense on your child's side to ensure they have the best chance of avoiding a conviction.

Juvenile offenses we defend include:

  • Assault
  • Underage drinking
  • Drug charges
  • Sexual harassment
  • Vandalism
  • Shoplifting
  • Truancy
  • MIP
  • Underage sexting
  • Gang crimes
