Representation for All Juvenile Crimes
Juveniles are capable of committing the same types of crime as adults.
Although we have an active criminal defense practice for adult offenders,
we understand that dealing with young people who have made unfortunate
mistakes requires delicacy, compassion, and legal flexibility. Our
St. Louis criminal defense attorneys make it a point not only to work closely with juvenile offenders, but
also with their families and loved ones. We go above and beyond the often
impersonal approaches other firms tend to use when dealing similar cases.
Our constant communication and genuine desire to help young people and
their families can provide you with the defense and resources you need.
It has been proven by numerous studies that juveniles convicted of crimes
run an increased risk for recidivism, or returning to a life of crime
and incarceration. We want to help make sure this doesn't happen and
will devote the time and effort of our entire legal team to provide your
child with any additional resources or help they need. We are prepared
to deal with any issue relating to a juvenile charge, including some of
the most common:
Depending on the age of the juvenile and the severity of their charge,
courts may prosecute some offenders as adults. Our firm will work tirelessly
to defend all types of criminal charges and will do our best to have charges
dropped or reduced as much as possible. A common misconception is that
juvenile charges will automatically disappear on a juvenile's 18th
birthday. Although this may be true in some cases, it does not necessarily
apply to all. Given the deeply personal nature of these crimes and the
fact that they vary on a unique basis, we ensure that our clients receive
specific answers to their questions, personalized attention, and close
communication throughout the entire legal process.
St. Louis Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Fight for Your Child
If your child or any minor in your life has been charged with a criminal
offense, you need legal representation. By securing the qualified criminal
defense we can provide, you can give your child a fighting chance of moving

are often unaware of the potential consequences of their actions. Unfortunately,
the consequences can be severe and can affect a child's future abilities
to attend schools, drive a motor vehicle, or gain employment.
Our legal team is comprised of
former prosecutors who draw from well-rounded legal knowledge when defending juvenile charges.
We understand that patience, support, and kindness are essential to cases
involving youth and we take great efforts to maintain such a demeanor
when working with our clients. Do not wait until it is too late. Allow
our firm to fight for your child's rights, freedom, and future. To
