Helping Children Charged With Juvenile Crimes Protect Their Rights

Those who have been charged with juvenile crimes are afforded many of the same constitutional rights as adults. They are entitled to an attorney and they also cannot be questioned without a parent present. If your child has been charged with a juvenile crime, he or she should not speak with anyone before he or she speaks with his or her lawyer and his or her parents.

We can help you negotiate with the prosecutor and the judge about reducing the charges or having them dismissed. Sometimes diversion or rehabilitation programs can be negotiated as an option in lieu of going through the judicial system or serving any time at a juvenile correctional facility. Our goal is make an arrangement that is in the best interests of your child that the court will agree to.
