Juvenile Crimes Lawyer in Boca Raton

Was your child charged with an offense? Protect them by working with my defense firm.

Children are the future, which is why it is so important that after an arrest, you take the time to find an aggressive attorney who will fight for them. The Florida Department of Juvenile Justice believe that investing in a child's future and rehabilitating them after a crime is an essential part of making the youth of Florida productive and beneficial members of society. Many parents feel confused and frustrated, however, after an arrest. Understanding the justice system and having an experienced Boca Raton defense lawyer on your side can help you navigate the courts and protect your child from unnecessarily harsh punishments.

What happens after an arrest?

Depending on the nature of the crime, a child may be detained or given a civil citation. If your child is taken into custody, they will be tried either as juvenile or tried under an adult court. Some prosecutors will do everything possible to try a child as an adult - often times to just make an example out of them. Youth tried in a juvenile court may be sent to a correctional facility or put on probation with mandatory classes and hearings. If is taken into custody for a misdemeanor, that is a greater chance of them awaiting their trial at home - but if a child is taken into custody for a felony, they may be sent to a detention center intermittently.

This time in your life may be incredibly stressful for you and your child, which is why it is so important that you retain the legal counsel of a dedicated legal professional. At my firm, I understand the struggles that families may be facing when it comes to the arrest of a child and I fight to reduce or diminish the consequences that children may be facing.
