Juvenile Offenses

Chicago Juvenile Crimes Defense Lawyers

Many of the parents who contact our law firm about their child's arrest are concerned about how it will affect their child's future. Depending on the charge, those concerns can be very real.

If your child is convicted of a sex offense, your child can be forced to register as a sex offender long past the time her or she is a juvenile. The first conviction on a drug charge can make your child ineligible for government student aid, loans, and grants for one year. A criminal record can also limit your child's future career choices.

Our goal as juvenile crimes defense attorneys is to preserve your child's record so he or she can walk away from this experience with minimal long-term effects. Keeping young people out of the criminal justice system is crucial for preserving their future.

We represent children charged with all types of juvenile offenses, including vandalism, theft, shoplifting, credit card fraud, drug possession, trespassing, sex crime, DUI, and assault. We also represent children charged with adult crimes, such as murder.
