If your child has been charged with a crime or is under investigation, you are no doubt frightened and concerned about protecting your child’s rights and future. We will fight for your child.
Like adults, children can be falsely accused of crimes, including very serious offenses. Young people also sometimes get into legal trouble for reasons that are connected to their youth and immaturity—they are more susceptible to peer pressure, their brains are less mature, and they are more likely to take risks and seek out excitement. Some young people have conditions—such as autism, learning disabilities, depression, or anxiety that can impact their judgment and decision making.
