Frequently Asked Questions

Should I hire an attorney for a juvenile crime?

Yes, hiring a lawyer experienced in juvenile criminal law can lead you to the best possible outcome. Because this is a specialized area of law that follows different rules, not all lawyers have the experience to help you.

What should I do if my child is accused of a crime?

Consult with an experienced attorney right away before talking to the police or investigators. It’s important to have a juvenile defense attorney to advocate for your child’s rights.

What is the difference between juvenile and adult criminal defense?

The term “committing crimes” is used to describe the prosecution of adults, while the prosecution of juveniles is based on “committing delinquent acts.” In situations where the delinquent acts are highly severe, like violent crimes such as homicide, the court may choose to charge the juvenile as an adult. They would then be tried in the adult criminal justice system.

Can a juvenile criminal record be expunged?

Yes, many juvenile cases can be expunged. If you or your child are under 18 when the incident happened and the case satisfies specific requirements, your juvenile court record will be automatically sealed.
