Juvenile Defense Attorney Serving Vancouver & Portland Metro Area
Most children will make mistakes which is part of growing up. When your child is charged with a criminal offense or is being investigated for alleged criminal conduct the level of worry and concern jumps dramatically, for parents and children. In most instances the child and parent will have little to no experience in the criminal system. It’s at times such as these that you will want to have as much experience on your side as you can obtain. Experience not only in criminal defense but in the unique juvenile criminal defense system.
Although the juvenile justice system is defined as being focused on rehabilitation, the impact of a criminal offense on a child’s future can be significant. Criminal convictions or adjudications can impact a child’s ability to attend college, participate in school activities, obtain employment, access scholarships and grants, and enlist in the military.
