Juvenile Law

Juvenile Law Attorney

In today’s world, providing for and protecting our children are the most important, and sometimes the most difficult, responsibilities of parenting. Despite our best efforts, children will still make mistakes that could lead to legal action. Unfortunately, if not handled properly, the mistakes that are made could negatively impact many aspects of a minor’s life, including education, future employment opportunities and even prevent them from protecting our country if they so desired.

Whether it is a minor offense such as truancy or disorderly conduct or a more serious offense such as DUI/OVI or drug possession, an attorney firm with juvenile law experience is critical in your child’s representation and future. Some of the crimes that a minor may be charged with are:

  • Abuse and Neglect
  • Juvenile Delinquency
  • Child Protection
  • Truancy
  • Vandalism
  • Shoplifting and Theft
  • Underage Drinking
  • OVI / DUI / DWI
  • Drug Possession, Use or Trafficking
  • Fighting and Violent Crimes
  • Sex Crimes

Our legal system can sometimes rule aggressively towards minors. That, coupled with the special laws involved with juveniles, make it essential to have an attorney that specializes in juvenile crimes. However, trying to find the best attorney can add even more stress to an already emotional situation. Our Dayton juvenile law attorneys have extensive experience with the law and compassion towards children and families. We will be sensitive to your child’s needs while providing the best legal defense available.

Unlike adults, where consequences are meant as punishment, consequences for juvenile crimes are geared towards treatment and rehabilitation for a minor. Our team of attorneys will attempt to get to the root of your child’s problems and will fight for the best resolution for your child’s needs. Some alternative options for juveniles are:

  • Drug court
  • Boot camp
  • Diversion
  • Mandatory counseling
