Defending the Future (Ages 16 and Under)
Understanding and Advocating for Youth in the Legal System
In legal terminology, crimes committed by individuals under the age of 17 are categorized as acts by juvenile delinquents, juvenile offenders, or delinquent minors. It’s a well-acknowledged fact that America’s youth, in the process of developing cognitive skills, often make mistakes as they learn to distinguish right from wrong and understand the rules and laws governing society.
The journey from childhood to adulthood is marked by learning and growth, and during this phase, youthful ignorance and misconceptions can sometimes lead young individuals astray. It is crucial that the legal system acknowledges the inherent differences between adults and children, ensuring that they are treated with the understanding and consideration they deserve during criminal proceedings. Recognizing this, our firm is dedicated to providing specialized defense services for juvenile crimes, advocating for fair treatment and a focus on rehabilitation and education, rather than punishment.
