Why You Need an Aggressive Juvenile Crimes Defense Attorney in Michigan
As an experienced juvenile crime defense lawyer, I know the specific challenges your child may be facing in their case. For example, prosecutors often prefer to try older children as adults. That’s why I focus my effort on first keeping your child’s case in the juvenile court system. Juvenile court treats child offenders very differently than an adult court, so it’s beneficial to keep your child’s case in a juvenile court. Once their case is firmly in the juvenile system, I can get to work figuring out the best defense strategy for your child.
Juvenile court emphasizes rehabilitation of young offenders, so penalties are geared toward helping the child change direction and channel their youthful energy into constructive activities. Usually, after completing all juvenile court requirements such as probation or community service, a juvenile’s record will be expunged to help them have a chance at a normal life.
Michigan Juvenile Courts & Their Impact on a Child’s Life
If your child planned on attending college or moving out on their own, they might not be able to once they’re convicted of a crime. Many colleges will not accept students who have a criminal record. Additionally, a lender or a landlord may reject an application for a loan or apartment if they know that the applicant has a criminal history. Even if a child does not attend college in the future, a serious enough criminal record could prevent them from finding work in the future.

At my office, I have seen virtually all types of juvenile crimes, from cases of petty theft or shoplifting to DUI and drug crimes.
