Some crimes committed by Juveniles do not get expunged or go away when the child becomes an adult. We often hear people say, “he is only a juvenile, it will come off of his record”. Do not set your child up for a permanent record and failure. You need an attorney who can protect your child’s rights and her future.

If your child has been accused of committing a crime, then you will need to retain the services of an attorney who excels at handling juvenile matters.
