CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAW: JUVENILE CRIMES
Alexandria and Fairfax Juvenile Criminal Defense: Protecting Your Child’s Future
Although juvenile crimes might not seem too serious to many people, in Virginia, juvenile felonies are not automatically wiped off of a permanent record upon adulthood. This means that a felony conviction could haunt your child for a lifetime.
If your child is facing charges in juvenile court, or is at risk of having the case transferred to adult court, it is essential to work with an experienced Northern Virginia criminal defense attorney who can help protect your child’s freedom and future.
We have a wealth of experience and knowledge defending clients in juvenile matters and all criminal defense cases. We can help make sure your child’s case stays in the juvenile justice system if possible, and minimize the damage that this type of charge can have on your child’s life.
Our team includes a juvenile criminal defense attorney who has also spent years working in the Public Defender’s office. This experience translates into a breadth of knowledge and hands-on understanding that can help protect your child’s interests. We have in-depth knowledge of the procedures and intricacies involved with handling juvenile cases.
We defend clients accused of juvenile offenses in juvenile court, as well as misdemeanors and felonies committed by youths, including:
- Speeding, reckless driving and other traffic violations
- Underage drinking and DUI
- Drug crimes
- Sex crimes
- Property crimes
In addition to our juvenile criminal defense practice, we also represent students in the school board review process, to help them avoid expulsion and other scholastic penalties.
