Lawrenceville Criminal Defense Attorney
Criminal Defense in Juvenile Court
A juvenile offense requires a defense attorney who is experienced with the Juvenile Court system and can therefore create an effective plan of representation. Although they involve minors (people under the age of 18) juvenile crimes are still criminal offenses which can carry heavy penalties for those convicted. In fact, certain violent and serious juvenile crimes may cause a minor to be tried as an adult and face adult consequences.
If you are a minor and have been accused of a crime, or if your child has been accused of a criminal offense, it is important to consult an experienced juvenile defense lawyer as soon as possible. By contacting a lawyer immediately, he/she can begin building a strong defense in your favor and can even help you avoid having to go to Juvenile Court at all.
