Clearwater Juvenile Defense Attorney
Contact an experienced Clearwater juvenile defense attorney today to protect your child and their future.
Usually when someone under the age of 17 commits a crime in Florida, the case will be handled in the Juvenile Justice System, otherwise known as “juvenile court.” Unlike adult courts, this court focuses more on the rehabilitation aspect of the criminal justice system rather than the punishment aspect. Let the experienced Clearwater juvenile defense attorneys help you.
However, sometimes, the State Attorney’s Office will choose to “direct file” a child’s charges in adult court. This usually happens when the child continues to pick up new charges or when a juvenile is accused of committing a serious crime. At Roman & Roman, our experienced Clearwater juvenile defense attorneys handle all juvenile offenses including:
- Drug offenses
- Weapon offenses
- Theft offenses – Burglary/Robbery
- Sex offenses
- All Felonies
- All Misdemeanors
If your child is arrested, it is extremely important to seek counsel of a qualified juvenile defense attorney as soon as possible. When you hire a Clearwater juvenile defense attorney to defend your child, we will begin immediately by contacting the State Attorney’s Office in an attempt to get its cooperation in keeping your child in the juvenile justice system rather than moving the case to adult court. We will be there to guide you and your child every step of the way through the process of the juvenile justice system. We also handle personal injury and business and real estate law. Call Roman & Roman today, any time of day, at 877.767.1032.
