Juvenile Criminal Charges: Why You Need an Attorney

juvenile criminal charges

If your child has been charged with a crime, your world will be turned upside down in a hurry. Even if charged as a juvenile, that does not mean the charges should be taken lightly. Since convictions in these cases can have lifelong implications regarding college, employment, and other important areas of life, having expert legal representation is crucial in these situations. Therefore, contact attorney Stephen Williams for expert advice.

Navigating the System
By working with an experienced Flemington NJ criminal attorney, your child’s case will be properly navigated through the system. Without this, it is possible your child may be tried as an adult, which will have their case heard in standard criminal court. If this happens, the consequences can be far more severe.

Correct Legal Strategies
By working with the Law Offices of Stephen Williams, you and your family will have a lawyer on your side who knows the juvenile justice system and the best strategies to use in the defense of your child. For example, by understanding the system and how certain charges are handled against juveniles, your attorney may be able to work out a deal with prosecutors that emphasizes rehabilitation rather than punishment.

Sealing or Expunging Records
For many juvenile offenders, one mistake made early on in life can have lifelong implications. For example, if they are convicted of drug charges, they often have difficulty attending college or gaining a job. To keep this from happening, contact attorney Stephen Williams. By doing so, he can explain the process of sealing or expunging records, which can be critical in making sure early mistakes are not lifelong burdens.

If your child has been charged with a crime, contact a Flemington NJ criminal attorney at the Law Offices of Stephen Williams. By doing so, your family will have expert legal guidance as the case plays out in court.
