Criminal Defense & Juvenile Delinquency
Because law enforcement agencies and prosecutors have extensive resources at their disposal, the rights of those accused of a crime must be protected. Protection of rights and fair treatment for criminal defendants often depends as much upon the skill of their defense attorney as it does the substantive protections contained in the law.
Juveniles are generally treated differently in the criminal justice system, and delinquency proceedings are subject to a different set of rules and procedures. The purpose of the juvenile system is not to punish the child, but to get the child the appropriate treatment and rehabilitation so as to deter criminal behavior by the juvenile in the future. Because of the uniqueness of juvenile delinquency matters, it is important to hire an attorney experienced in handling juvenile matters.
