We have an incredible amount of experience in all of these areas and can handle any crime your child is facing. Our criminal defense attorney will fight to keep the case in the juvenile justice system where the focus is primarily on rehabilitation, not just punishment.

Our goal is to protect your child and defend there freedom and rights. We will strive to keep your child out of detention; probation or home arrest is a better option. When possible, however, we will strive to get the charges reduced or dismissed.
