Juvenile Criminal Offenses

Juveniles as young as twelve (and in some instances, younger than twelve) can be detained, arrested for and charged with crimes just as an adult can be charged. A common misconception is that a parent has a right to notification prior to arrest or investigation; this is not the case. — Read More >

Child Abuse Allegations – Sexual or Physical

Victim Defendant Representation

Many women and men who are accused of domestic violence are actually victims of domestic violence.

Domestic Violence Victim Representation

A victim of domestic violence is not represented by the prosecutor or by the prosecutor’s victim’s advocate. If a victim of domestic violence does not wish for prosecution to proceed, the prosecutor does not have to follow the victim’s wishes. — Read More >

School Discipline

Students have a right to a public education and certain due process rights if the school attempts to take that right away. Students also have an obligation to follow school rules and not disrupt the welfare or order of the school environment. Kids are kids and teenagers are teenagers and they can make mistakes. — Read More >
