Joliet Juvenile Crime Defense Lawyer

It is every parent’s nightmare for his or her child to run into trouble with the law. Many children make mistakes, and when they do, they deserve a second chance. Children should not have to suffer lifelong consequences from decisions they made while still young and immature.

The juvenile justice system is meant to impose less severe penalties than the criminal justice system. However, juvenile crimes can still have a lasting and detrimental impact on your child’s future. It can affect his or her educational opportunities, employment prospects and other opportunities down the road.
