If your child is arrested, there is so much at stake. It is especially important that your child has representation by an attorney who knows the law and the unique judicial procedures involved with juvenile courts.
It is equally important for that attorney to understand your child's issues and needs. At Whitestone Young, PC, of Fairfax, Virginia, we take the time to listen to and understand our clients, especially children and their parents. You and your child cannot afford anything less, because the decisions made now will likely have lasting effects.
A Tradition Of Excellence In Representing Children
Children do not have the same rights as adults. They cannot vote, drink alcoholic beverages, smoke, enter into contracts or drive without restrictions. And when children violate the rules, the courts treat them differently. This does not mean that they have no rights. The law affords them due process when facing charges such as:
- Drug possession
- Drunk driving
- Shoplifting, burglary or other theft offenses
- Sex crimes
While the juvenile justice system is different, our lawyers will put to use the same skills they have learned over decades of criminal trial experience. This includes how to secure and evaluate evidence, how to persuasively present a case and how to protect our clients' best interests.
It is important to talk with an attorney as soon as possible after your child's arrest or if you learn he or she is under investigation. A negative outcome could hurt your child's chances of getting into college, or it could mean time spent in a detention facility. We will explore all of the options available, including fighting for dismissal or finding alternatives such as counseling that will put your child on a solid foundation for a better future.
