Navajo County Juvenile Crime Lawyer
Defending the Rights of Juveniles
Learning that your child has been charged with a crime can be an intensely stressful and worrisome experience. If you do not take action now to resolve the situation, your child could be expelled from school or made ineligible to receive educational scholarships in the future, in addition to the fact that having a criminal record can drastically limit available career opportunities. Many employers will not hire an applicant who cannot pass a background check. In addition to concerns over the future, it is vital to shield your child from involvement in the criminal justice system, which can include incarceration, psychological counseling, and the potential loss of self-esteem. Retaining a Navajo County criminal defense lawyer as early as possible is the best thing you can do to avoid a negative outcome.
At Williams Law Group, we understand what a difficult time this may be for your family. You deserve support and guidance to help you find a solution as quickly as possible. We have experience both as prosecutors and as criminal defense attorneys, and have represented clients on charges ranging from
civil traffic offenses to first-degree murder. Whether your child is charged with vandalism or a minor
theft crime such as shoplifting, underage
DUI or a felony such as
burglary, we are prepared to provide vigorous advocacy and defense.
Has your child been arrested?
Retaining us as early as possible before the adjudication hearing may make it possible to negotiate a favorable plea bargain which allows your child to serve probation and avoid a criminal record. If the case goes to juvenile court, we will fight to have the charges dropped or to secure an acquittal. Even if your child is adjudicated as a delinquent, we can still argue for a reduced sentence, rather than accepting penalties that can include jail or a juvenile correctional facility. Depending on the severity of the alleged offense, the prosecutor may seek to try the case in adult court, but we will do everything we can to preserve its status as a juvenile charge.
