Lawrenceville Juvenile Crime Attorney

Representing Minors Arrested for or Accused of Juvenile Offenses

Juvenile crimes are any criminal offenses committed by a minor, a person under the age of 17. Juvenile court proceedings are very different than those for an adult. For instance, there is no jury in a juvenile court case in Georgia. The sentence and verdict is decided by a judge who will evaluate the case based upon evidence, information, and testimony provided by the prosecution and the defense.

Juvenile courts in Gwinnett County and throughout the state are meant to protect children from the harsh reality of adult court. After all, minors are impressionable and should be given the opportunity to learn from their mistakes. However, sometimes a certain offense will cause prosecutors to attempt to have a child tried as an adult, where he or she will face adult penalties.

Due to the differences in the two court systems, and the possibility that your child could be facing jail or imprisonment, make sure you contact a legal professional who is experienced with juvenile court proceedings. By working with a Lawrenceville criminal defense lawyer with more than 20 years of experience and a high level of commitment to his clients, your child still has the chance for a bright future.
