Juvenile Violations



Defending a minor facing juvenile charges requires specific knowledge and skill in representing clients in juvenile court. I understand the Florida juvenile justice system and know exactly how to effectively represent minors accused of all types of crimes, from simple vandalism or shoplifting all the way to serious felonies.

The consequences of a juvenile crime conviction are far-reaching. If your child has been arrested or detained for a criminal offense, he or she may face incarceration as well as the possibility of having a juvenile record. This can have a tremendous impact on your child’s future, as educational and employment opportunities may be negatively affected. That is why it is important to consult a defense attorney as soon as possible. Early intervention gives an attorney a better chance of securing a positive outcome on your behalf.

I represent clients in juvenile crime cases throughout Pinellas County, Pasco County, and Hillsborough County. Some of the types of charges I handle include:

  • Vandalism / Graffiti
  • Shoplifting
  • Gang Offenses
  • Weapons Charges
  • Theft Crimes
  • Drug Crimes
  • Underage DUI
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Assault and Battery

Florida Juvenile Crime Defense Attorney

As a first step in taking on a juvenile crime case, I work to ensure that the minor is not tried as an adult. In particular violent and serious felony offenses, a minor may face trial as an adult and therefore the same penalties that an adult would face. I believe that juvenile offenders need rehabilitation, not simply punishment.

Rehabilitation enables a minor to learn from his or her past mistakes and move on. I believe in helping children, teens and young adults by protecting their rights and interests in Florida juvenile court proceedings – so they can face a bright future.
