Juvenile Crimes Defense Lawyer
Free Consultation / Phones Answered 24 Hours A Day
Solid representation for children, parents and guardians during juvenile court proceedings
“Juvenile Law” refers to criminal activity committed by minors who are then judged and punished according to the guidelines of juvenile court rather than the adult criminal justice system. The goal of this system is one of rehabilitation rather than punishment in the hopes that the juvenile offender can be steered towards a law-abiding lifestyle before they become involved with the adult courts.
From our offices in downtown Philadelphia, the juvenile law attorneys at Brennan Law Offices assist juvenile clients, parents and guardians in answering charges related to:
- Decertification Hearings
- Minor Consuming Alcohol / Alcohol Possession
- Drug Possession / Sales / Manufacture
- Gang Activity
- Traffic Violations
- Shoplifting / Theft
- Assault / Murder / Serious Felony Crimes
- Misdemeanor Crimes
- Gun Charges
- Parole / Probation Violation
With today’s “get tough” attitude towards crime, especially juvenile crime, many very young children find themselves facing serious penalties in adult courts and adult prisons for crimes that would in the past have involved the juvenile justice system. Over the past 25 years, our juvenile court lawyers at Brennan Law Offices have worked closely with prosecutors and social agencies to have adult charges decertified and litigated in juvenile, rather than adult court. Placing a child in adult prison often has the opposite effect of essentially training the child for a life of crime, as opposed to interdiction by the juvenile system that can steer juvenile offenders towards the help they need and a normal life.
At Brennan Law Offices, each Philadelphia juvenile defense lawyer works hard to ensure that your child’s rights are protected and that exposure to the juvenile court system is kept to a minimum, either through juvenile court trials, plea agreements or alternatives to prosecution like counseling or public service. When a child commits a crime, the best thing society can do for them is to provide them with the support and assistance they need to become contributing members of society rather than a financial burden in the adult prison system.
