An Attorney to Protect Your Child's Future
Mistakes that children make should not necessarily impact the rest of their lives. At Breeden Law Office in Johnston County, North Carolina, we understand that juveniles, under the age of 16, find themselves in trouble for all sorts of reasons. Our job is to find the best resolution to their case and minimize the consequences, allowing them to learn from their mistakes, not repeat them.
If your child is charged with a crime, do not let embarrassment or frustration dictate how you make your decisions. Yes, their records are sealed on their 16th birthday, but you still need an aggressive legal advocate at their side. Contact us at 919-805-3639 or toll free at 866-346-1680.
Hands-On Experience in Juvenile Court
Criminal defense attorney Jonathan Breeden is on the court-appointed list for juvenile criminal cases. He knows how the process works and how to protect your rights and interests in cases involving juvenile crimes. Sometimes, the government can act quickly trying to get the case into adult court. At Breeden Law, we put up a strong defense, pointing out that there's a big difference between shoplifting or vandalism and assault or rape.
Selecting Your Attorney, Not Having One Selected For You
While our founding attorney does sometimes accept court appointments, he recommends that parents consider their options in selecting a lawyer. You want an attorney who will really focus on your case and provide one-on-one, personalized representation. You need an attorney that will meet with you and your child to discuss all the issues involved. Too much is at stake to do otherwise.
Exploring Options and Minimizing the Impact of a Juvenile Crime
Crimes committed by children under 16 may be under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court system, but we handle them as diligently as any other criminal matter. We thoroughly build a defense, based on the facts and the law. Our job is to minimize the consequences and find the best resolution. That may involve anger management sessions, peer-to-peer classes, community service, or time spent in a youth development center.
