Protecting Clients Facing Juvenile Delinquency Matters
Juvenile crimes can be the result of a single youthful indiscretion or they can be part of a larger pattern of harmful behavior. While penalties for juvenile crime can sometimes keep children from being able to live up to their full potential, it doesn’t have to be that way. It is important to keep in mind that the juvenile justice system is more interested in rehabilitation than in punishment.
Our lawyers provide aggressive, personalized representation to help you navigate the juvenile justice system, minimize the effect of the charges against your child and potentially beat the charges altogether. If you would like to schedule a free initial consultation at our firm, contact us online. Call us at 301-637-0281 or toll free at 866-470-5187. We have experience handling a wide variety of juvenile charges, including:
- Drug Charges
- Assault and Theft
- Underage Drinking
Keeping Your Case in Juvenile Court
The more serious the offense, the greater the chance that the case will be waived from juvenile court to adult court. If the juvenile is tried as an adult, then he or she will be subject to adult penalties, including lengthy prison sentences. Cases can be transferred to or from juvenile court during a “waiver hearing.”
We can fight to keep your case from being waived into adult court, and we can fight to have your case waived to juvenile court if the charges are currently in adult court.
