Has your son or daughter been charged with a crime? Do you need their record expunged? Being charged as a juvenile can have serious and long-term consequences, effecting future opportunities such as college student loans, auto loans, and job employment.
Unlike the adult criminal justice system, the juvenile criminal justice system is charged with not only punishment, but also rehabilitating the juvenile offender. If you or your loved one is charged with a juvenile crime, you need an attorney who not only understands how to prove the innocence of your child, but also how the juvenile system operates in order to keep your child from being removed from your home or having a permanent criminal record.
By design, juvenile offenders have far more options available to them to avoid conviction. You will need a lawyer who understands these options to ensure that “one dumb decision” does not ruin a child’s future.
Here at ThePhillyLawyers we have extensive experience with the juvenile criminal justice system. And we work hard to have juveniles tried in juvenile court and not as an adults.
