Resolving Juvenile Crime Charges
As former prosecutors, our attorneys understand how cases against juveniles are prosecuted. As defense attorneys, we are proud to work on behalf of juveniles charged with serious offenses, such as:
- Underage drinking
- Traffic tickets
- Traffic accident
- Probation violation
- Driving on a suspended license
- Drug offense
As a minor under the age of 18, you stand to lose a lot if convicted. You may suffer certain consequences in school, as well as challenges when applying for university or for jobs. We understand the gravity of these consequences, and we want to alleviate some of your burden by assuring you of our experience obtaining favorable outcomes in these types of cases.
How Our Attorneys Fight for You
As your attorneys, we are committed to defending your best interests and protecting your rights. Each case is unique, but we will work tirelessly to try to help you avoid the establishment of a criminal record, as well as the penalties that accompany a juvenile offense conviction.
Attorneys Charles Clark and Ryan Clark previously worked as prosecutors, which included prosecuting juveniles. As such, we understand the complexities and nuances of the juvenile court system and juvenile criminal law. We will pursue expungement of charges and convictions whenever possible. As a young adult, you do not deserve to have a mistake follow you around.
We take the time to collect and preserve all necessary evidence, consulting with witnesses and experts when necessary. We review police documentation and challenge any evidence illegally seized. In every case, our attorneys are looking for the best possible result: a not guilty verdict or a deferred disposition ultimately resulting in dismissal. We don't plea bargain or negotiate any deals unless you and your family fully support it.
