Protecting Your Child's Rights
When your child gets into trouble with the law, it can seem devastating. You may be concerned that this is a turning point for the worse on his or her path to becoming an adult. That does not have to be the case. Juvenile court works toward the goal of rehabilitation much more than punishment. Our experience can help you and your child make the most of the opportunity that juvenile court can be to set your child back on a positive path.
At the Law Office of Robert S. Toale, our New Orleans juvenile crime attorney began his career as a public defender in the juvenile court for two and half years and has 30 years of experience helping people in need. Let our familiarity with the juvenile court system help shepherd your juvenile through that system and help your child benefit as much as he or she can from it.
Experienced Juvenile Charges Defense
Our Gretna underage drinking attorney is experienced in providing solid defense to individuals facing charges such as:
- Drug charges (marijuana possession, ecstasy possession)
- Underage drinking (minor in possession)
- Retail theft (shoplifting)
- Underage DWI
In reality, many of the charges that adults can face may also be charged to a minor. Juvenile court differs in its emphasis on rehabilitation over punishment, the fact that proceedings there are not open to the public or of public record, and there is a children's code that dictates the procedure.
For juveniles, improperly defended criminal charges can be a first step in a downward spiral. Let our decades of experience create the solid defense your minor needs.
