Juvenile Criminal Defense
Juveniles have legal rights that need protecting. No juvenile criminal matter should be taken lightly. To minimize the negative consequences to your child today and in the future, it is important that your child be represented by an attorney who is familiar with the juvenile criminal court system and is known for getting positive results.
Experienced in Representing Juveniles
At Sorrels, Udashen & Anton, our lawyers have years of experience defending clients charged with the full range of juvenile crimes, from shoplifting, destruction of property and drug possession to sex crimes, and assault. We also represent juveniles who have been charged with in-school violations. We can help your family deal with school regulations, alternative school placements and related issues.
We draw upon our substantial resources and legal knowledge in our efforts to get the case against your child dismissed or the charges reduced.
We Know the System
The juvenile system is a completely different system from adult criminal court, with different laws and procedures. It is designed to prevent a youthful indiscretion from ruining a person's life. Our attorneys know the juvenile justice system inside out. We have achieved exceptional results for our juvenile criminal defense clients.
A juvenile charged with certain crimes can be certified to stand trial as an adult. These are very serious cases that can result in prison time and a lifetime of dealing with the effects of a criminal record. Our first goal is to keep the case in juvenile court whenever possible.
If your child has been arrested, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss how we can help.
