Protecting Your Child’s Future
While the juvenile justice system emphasizes rehabilitating young offenders rather than punishing them, there can still be extremely serious consequences for a charged youth’s future. Young individuals facing juvenile delinquency charges – either for a sex crime, assault or other offense – do not have the right to a jury trial. Do not leave your child’s future up to just the decision of a judge. Do not allow your child to go into a juvenile hearing without skilled counsel.
Juveniles charged as adults, in a process known as a “bind over,” or a waiver from juvenile court to adult court, face very serious consequences. In such situations, it is imperative to seek a strong and experienced advocate to protect the young person’s rights and vigorously defend them. There are alternatives to bind overs when juveniles face serious charges. Our juvenile defense lawyer can negotiate in an effort to secure a positive outcome and to keep your child out of jail. We offer vigorous defense and compassionate representation. Let us help you get your child back on the right track.
