Florida Underage Drinking Defense Attorney
If your child is being charged with a juvenile crime, it can be a scary time for you and your whole family. You need a criminal defense lawyer who has legal experience and skill, and who genuinely cares for your child's well-being.
As a juvenile law attorney, I know how important it is to defend your child from excessive penalties and a tarnished record. Serving Fort Lauderdale, Florida, my law firm can help you get the best results possible for your child. A Different Court Process
Most juvenile crimes are similar to adult misdemeanors and felonies, including crimes like:
- Underage drinking
- Underage DUI
Although the crimes are similar, juvenile crimes involve a different court process, and a certain degree of confidentiality. The general public cannot see the records of juvenile convictions, but the state can use these records in the future when prosecuting for a different crime.
All juvenile convictions are technically confidential — the general public can't see them — but they remain on your record for the prosecutor to use any time in the future. I can help get the charges dismissed and keep your child's record clean.
Diversion programs from the state of Florida will help avoid juvenile detention and will remove the arrest from your record. Children are eligible for a diversion program for first offenses.
In cases of second offenses, I will fight through the trial and appeal process if necessary, to make sure your child gets the most lenient sentence possible.
