Should I Contact a Juvenile Defense Attorney?

If you are under the age of 18 and have been arrested for a criminal activity, you should contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. A juvenile defense attorney will work aggressively to dissuade the prosecutor’s office from even filing charges, which is a tactic sometimes referred to as pre-filing intervention. If the juvenile is ultimately charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, juvenile defense attorneys will try to have the juvenile released to the custody of his or her parents at arraignment.
