We will fight to protect your child’s future as your juvenile crimes defense attorney
While the juvenile justice system is designed to reform young offenders, it is still possible for a juvenile to end up saddled with harsh penalties that can negatively affect their future. This makes it extremely important to respond quickly and aggressively to any juvenile crimes allegations that may be made against your child.
So what do you need to do?
It’s simple: call Perlmutter & Pourshalimi.
As your juvenile crimes defense attorney, we will work hard to protect your child’s rights and prevent any unfair punishment. We understand the ins and outs of the juvenile court system (which is quite different from the adult system) and we can provide your child with the strongest possible defense for their adjudicatory hearing.
Types of Juvenile Crimes
A juvenile can be tried for any crime that an adult could, plus for some other activities that are only crimes due to the juvenile’s age. However, there are some crimes that are especially common for juveniles. Some examples include:
- Assault & Battery
- Drug Crimes
- Underage DUI
At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we understand the law on all these crimes. As former prosecutors ourselves, we know what it takes to prove guilt, and we know how to identify and attack the weak points in the state’s case against your child.
We Will Fight to Keep Your Child at Home
From a parent’s perspective, one of the most dreaded outcomes to a juvenile case is incarceration. A stay in a juvenile hall or youth authority facility can be extremely traumatic for a young person, and may actually make their behavior worse.
Fortunately, there are many possible alternatives to incarceration. As your child’s juvenile defense attorney, we will, first and foremost, fight to prevent an adjudication of delinquency (as a conviction is called in juvenile court). If this is not possible, we will focus on advocating for a resolution that will keep your child at home with you, rather than incarcerated. For example, we might be able to get a deferred adjudication, counselling, community service, or probation.
