Criminal Defense & Social Security Disability Law

Dedicated And Knowledgeable Juvenile Defense

Juvenile cases are dealt with within the criminal justice system in a different way than adult criminal matters. Since this is the case, it is essential that you hire an experienced attorney who has a complete understanding of the juvenile crime process and procedure. At the office of Lawrence, Smith and Gardner, we work to help parents and their accused children understand the charges pending against them and the options they have for a defense in the case.

Juvenile crime matters are often viewed as more of an opportunity for rehabilitation rather than an opportunity to impose punishment. Using our knowledge and many years of experience, we are able to quickly assess your case, anticipate and perhaps suggest the possible ways in which a prosecutor may seek to resolve the case. Whatever the course of action, we always work for our clients’ best interests.

Some of the types of juvenile-specific matters that we handle include:

  • DUI
  • Drug charges
  • Theft
  • Possession of alcohol
  • Underage drinking

A conviction or guilty plea in a juvenile crime matter may have an adverse effect on your child’s life. We are committed to helping you understand the long-term repercussions that the case may have while working hard to minimize the impact on your child’s life. Our firm also handles sealing and expungement of records when necessary.
