For help with all criminal cases involving minors
Minors often commit crimes because they succumb to peer pressure or have fallen in with the wrong crowd. Sadly, when juveniles are pressured into activities involving drugs or underage drinking, they are more likely to develop substance abuse problems. We believe that most minors who make mistakes deserve a second chance and will advocate on their behalf.
While adult penalties for a conviction in many of these types of crimes might include jail time or serious fines, a good defense attorney can often arrange lesser penalties such as treatment programs, community service and/or probationary periods that focus on a juvenile offender’s future rather than on punishment.
