Protecting Your Child's Future
Teenagers sometimes do foolish things. Unfortunately, the existence of a criminal record can have long-lasting consequences such as preventing someone from entering certain occupations or excluding him or her from certain educational institutions.
The good news for teenagers who have been arrested on criminal charges is that Virginia takes a rehabilitative approach to juvenile crimes, whenever possible. In many cases, it is possible to keep a juvenile's record clear and to minimize or avoid any negative consequences.
At Kearney, Freeman, Fogarty & Joshi, PLLC, we provide results-driven representation for juveniles charged with all types of crimes, including:
- Marijuana possession and distribution
- Underage drinking/minor in possession of alcohol
- Underage DUI
- Shoplifting and theft
- Other criminal charges
To schedule a consultation about a juvenile criminal matter, contact Kearney, Freeman, Fogarty & Joshi, PLLC.
How We Can Help
When you retain us to represent your child, we will work diligently to protect his or her rights and minimize any long-term consequences of the arrest. Whenever possible, we work with the prosecutor and court to obtain outcomes that avoid permanent criminal records.
In certain cases, a juvenile may face potential incarceration in a juvenile justice facility until the age of 21 or be charged in adult court. Our criminal defense lawyers will provide vigorous representation, working hard to keep your child out of the juvenile or adult justice systems.
Defending Minors Facing Drug Charges
