As a parent, your number one concern has to be the safety, welfare and happiness of your children.
When children are arrested in Cook, Will or DuPage Counties for a criminal offense, they face a different array of penalties and procedures than adult offenders. The reasoning behind this is easy to understand. Kids make mistakes. They are impressionable and easily swayed by their peers. They are also inexperienced in life and in decision-making, and therefore, frequently commit errors in judgment. Moreover, teenagers are sometimes in the wrong place at the wrong time and find themselves easily swept up in an arrest, even if they personally did not commit a crime. For all of these reasons, it is vital that you secure legal representation for your detained child before he or she speaks with criminal investigators.
We skillfully handle the following kinds of juvenile offense cases:
- Drug Crimes
- Underage drinking
- Weapons-related offenses
