When a child is charged with a crime, it affects the entire family. This is especially true in cases where a minor has been charged with a serious criminal offense, such as a sex crime, assault, or even murder.
Whether your child has committed a crime, been wrongfully accused of a criminal act, or simply made a mistake, the guidance of a juvenile defense lawyer can help you get through this difficult time. Juvenile crimes law varies from state to state, but a lawyer can help you understand your child’s legal options and answer all of your questions regarding your child’s case.

I found myself in a situation of uncertainty being accused of assault, while trying to establish a boundary between my wife and her ex-husband. I have been trying to contact other law firms for help with no success.
I called this office during my lunch break and asked to speak to someone. Mat, a para, was able to speak with me and get the details. He immediately called my local PD with the case number and got back to me right away, so that I could go back to work. I appreciate the action and support.
