It is not uncommon for children and teenagers to make mistakes or do things that they will regret later. When those mistakes are criminal, the consequences can have a huge impact on their future.
Juvenile Crimes Attorney — Protecting Your Child’s Future
At Schwartz & Krysinski, L.L.P., our attorneys provide the representation you and your family need to confront the charges and minimize the consequences and repercussions. We are experienced in handling cases in juvenile court. Our team handles all types of juvenile offenses, including minor in possession, underage drinking, breaking and entering, trespassing, shoplifting and vandalism.
Juvenile court is much different from adult criminal court. Judges and prosecutors want to make sure that a minor learns his or her lesson, but that the minor is provided a second chance and is reformed. With proper negotiation, the charges can often be minimized or punished with a lesser or compromised sentence.
It is important, though, that the lawyer has experience working with juvenile judges and prosecutors to accomplish the best possible outcome. Our team is seasoned in handling juvenile cases. We will present a case to the court that shows how your minor can learn the lesson without having to serve a full penalty.
We also help minors with criminal records, advocating for expungement of crimes. A criminal record can have a profound impact on a student’s education choice, opportunities for scholarships and opportunities for jobs. We fight to ensure that these doors are not closed due to a criminal record.
