Juvenile charges are not handled in the same way as adult charges. In fact, they are handled in a completely different court system. This court system has its own unique rules. If you are a juvenile who has been accused of a crime, or the parent of a juvenile, it is critical that you choose a criminal defense attorney who understands the nuances of the juvenile courts.

Defense Against All Juvenile Charges
Juveniles can be charged with anything an adult is charged with. However, juveniles are frequently charged with:
We can defend against these juvenile charges and more, including underage drinking and disorderly conduct.
Juveniles may also face serious charges for having a weapon at school. Grade schools, middle schools and high schools have a zero tolerance policy in these matters. If the school finds anything resembling a weapon, whether it is a knife or a parents' hunting rifle left in a student's car, it will contact the police and charges most likely will be filed. We defend against them.
The Juvenile Court Is Designed for Rehabilitation
Unlike the adult court system, which is designed for punishment, the juvenile court system is truly intended to be for rehabilitation. The court wants to make certain that the accused will not follow the path to a life of crime. Our job is to make certain that the accused's future and rights are protected along the way.
