Defending Children Charged With Juvenile Crimes
Children are by nature rebellious, but sometimes their actions cross a line that society and the Georgia legislators have deemed unacceptable which can result in criminal charges. When this happens, it is important to protect your child and their future by seeking out a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with juvenile crimes and the juvenile court system.
At Claridge Law Firm LLC, we are a husband and wife attorney team who not only help families with criminal matters but family law matters as well. We know how emotional juvenile crime cases can be because they affect the child and the family’s reputation and the effects of a juvenile crime conviction can have a lifelong impact.
A Defense Against All Juvenile Charges
Our lawyers can help you with any juvenile crime your child has been charged with, including:
- Marijuana possession
- Underage drinking
We are familiar with the judges who preside over these cases and all the components they consider when hearing a juvenile crimes case. A juvenile court judge has wide-ranging power to impose all different types of penalties that can affect the entire family picture, including temporary custody arrangements, investigations into your home life, sentencing to a juvenile detention center, community service and even removal to adult court to face full trial and sentencing.
Finding Solutions That Can Help Your Child’s Future
This is why it is crucial to have an attorney on your side who can effectively litigate your case and negotiate with the prosecutor or convince the judge which of these options are in the child’s best interest. We will investigate the evidence, the circumstances surrounding how the events led to the charges and if any behavioral problems exist that could be targeted using counseling and therapy rather than criminal punishment.
Let Our Team Shield Your Children
No matter what criminal charge your child is facing, we can help you assess the case against them and the legal strategy to reduce the charges or penalties. Our goal is to help you and your family through this difficult time using our knowledge of juvenile law, family law and criminal law. Contact us today by calling 706-860-4500 if you have questions concerning juvenile crime charges and how they will affect your child, your family and your future.
