The consequences of a juvenile crime conviction are far-reaching. If your child has been arrested or detained for a criminal offense, he or she may face incarceration as well as the possibility of having a juvenile record. This can have a tremendous impact on your child's future, as educational and employment opportunities may be negatively affected. That is why it is important to consult an attorney as soon as possible. Early intervention gives an attorney a better chance of securing a positive outcome on your behalf.

Types of Charges Your Child May Be Facing

Common juvenile charges include:

Compassionate, Yet Aggressive Defense

At Hager & Schwartz, P.A., we are strong advocates for minors' rights. As a first step in taking on a juvenile crime case, we work to ensure that the minor is not tried as an adult. In some violent and serious felony offenses, a minor may face trial as an adult and therefore the same penalties that an adult would face. As Florida tries more juveniles as adults than most other states - according to statistics published by the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) - ensuring that young clients are not prosecuted as adults are one of our first priorities. We believe that juvenile offenders need rehabilitation, not simply punishment, and we fight aggressively to obtain the best possible resolution.

Rehabilitation enables a minor to learn from his or her past mistakes and move on. We believe in helping children, teens, and young adults by protecting their rights and interests in Florida juvenile court proceedings. If your son or daughter faces any type of criminal offense, please do not delay in finding the genuine support, factual information, and attentive legal assistance you need as you navigate this difficult journey. Allow a member of our legal team to provide you and your child with a free case evaluation, during which you can learn more about the nature of the charges and penalties at hand, and the ways in which our legal team can help.
