DEFENDING CHILDREN

Sometimes the person accused of a crime is a child. Parents and guardians care, and they do not want to see their vulnerable youngster simply “turned into a statistic.” The system tries to be fair to the child. But still the system is often unreasonable.  In particular, the juvenile justice system often makes “something out of nothing” or mixes up the “good with the bad.” A child may be sent to adult court inappropriately, instead of having the case handled in juvenile court. The fact is that, when kids are involved, there are often misunderstandings or misrepresentations. So a firm, comprehensive, and aggressive legal approach is particularly helpful in fighting for accused children. It comes back to getting to know the client well and grasping the whole picture — making it clear to police and courts what is really going on.
