Helping Your Child Get Back On Track When Facing A Juvenile Offense
All young people make mistakes, but some mistakes can affect the rest of a child’s life. If your child has been charged with a crime or ended up in the juvenile justice system for any reason, Russell & Ireland Law Group, LLC, can help ensure your child gets back on track while minimizing negative consequences for their future.
Minors can end up in Juvenile Court for actions that would be considered crimes if committed by adults, as well as for behaviors that are specifically prohibited for minors, such as drinking alcohol. We can assist if your child has been charged with a crime or offense such as:
- Minor in possession of alcohol
- Drunk driving
- Buying or smoking cigarettes
- Shoplifting, theft and burglary
- Truancy, curfew violations and other delinquent behavior
Focusing On Your Child’s Best Interests
With extensive experience in juvenile law and criminal defense, we will advocate for the best interest of your child and seek the best available options. The juvenile justice system is much more focused on rehabilitation than the adult criminal justice system, but it is still important to have an experienced attorney to guide you and your child through the process. Some of the options for helping your child move forward could include counseling, community service, substance abuse treatment or other youth programs.
