Our Juvenile Criminal Defense Practice

The juvenile criminal justice system is different than the adult criminal justice system. For instance, there is no right to a jury trial in a juvenile case. On a more positive note, the juvenile system also places a much greater emphasis on rehabilitating juveniles rather than punishing them.

In any case, if your underage son or daughter has been charged with a crime, he or she will need an attorney who understands the system and who has a proven ability to create out-of-the-box solutions that keep kids out of jail and on the right track.

This is exactly what we can do for your child.

We offer skilled juvenile criminal defense for all types of misdemeanor and felony offenses, including:

We can also help get your child’s criminal record expunged or sealed.
