When your child is facing juvenile delinquency misdemeanor charges, it is of utmost importance that you get an effective defense lawyer. The effects of being adjudicated delinquent or convicted of any crime can be long lasting and possibly permanent. Sometimes charges can appear on criminal records long after the defendant is over the age of 18 and can last until the age of 31.

Get a juvenile defense lawyer early on

Whatever your child says can be used against him or her by the prosecution and often results in worse fines and more serious charges. Having Jeremy present can prevent a mistake that can jeopardize the case. Jeremy frequently succeeds in having juvenile misdemeanor charges completely dropped.
