Your child has been arrested or charged with a crime. This is a scary time for your family and you probably are trying to figure out what to do. The important thing to know is that in most juvenile defense cases, your child will be processed in the juvenile justice system.
Juvenile proceedings operate differently than the adult court system. Juvenile court cases are conducted in a closed courtroom, where a judge will determine the guilt or innocence of the accused youth. Your child has rights, but there are differences in the juvenile justice process. Because of these differences, it is extremely important that your child is represented by a juvenile defense attorney with experience and a track record defending youth in juvenile defense proceedings.
Josh and the Georgia Children’s Defense team will help you navigate the juvenile court process from arraignment through disposition and will be here for you and your child every step of the way. We will make sure you know your child’s legal rights. We will explain how the Juvenile Court process works and will keep you informed about what you need to know. Our juvenile defense attorneys have the experience, the knowledge, and the passion for defending youth when facing the Juvenile Court system.
When a young person finds themselves involved in Georgia’s juvenile justice system they are often at a crossroads in their life. Some young people have an interaction with the Juvenile justice system and it becomes a preview for a life in and out of courts, jail and probation. There are also young people who after facing the Juvenile Justice System make meaningful changes and find a way back to a better path.
Our job as your Juvenile Defense Attorney is to try to achieve the best outcome from the resolution of your charges. Our goal is also to work with you in the hopes that we are the last lawyer you will ever need to hire.
