Juvenile Crimes Attorney

South Central Pennsylvania Juvenile Offense Attorney

Juvenile Offense Lawyer in Cumberland County, Dauphin County & York County

No parent wants to hear that his or her child has been arrested and charged with a crime. If your child is facing criminal charges, it is your duty as a parent to do everything you can to support your child and protect his or her rights. Children and young adults have so many future opportunities. A long stay at a secured detention center, jail time (if charged as an adult), fines, probation and other criminal punishments can seriously affect your child’s future plans for work, school and other endeavors. Attorney Dave Mueller can offer you the experienced and dedicated defense that you need if your child is facing criminal charges.

Generally speaking, a child under the age of 18 can be charged with the same types of crimes as an adult. Sometimes, prosecutors will choose to try the child as an adult, depending on the circumstances and severity of the case. If charged with any criminal offense, it is advisable to get experienced juvenile defense counsel immediately. Even offenses such as underage drinking need the experience and knowledge of a juvenile defense lawyer, as various options exist under Pennsylvania law. No matter what your child’s case entails, it is still crucial to speak with an attorney to determine the best course of action for your child’s defense. Remember, in today’s society of high-tech gadgets, cell phones and social networks, your child’s mistakes can affect him or her for a lifetime.

Juvenile Crimes & Life Consequences

If your child is facing any criminal accusation, including, but not limited to the following, Juvenile Crimes Defense Attorney Dave Mueller can offer you experienced and personalized legal assistance and representation:

The consequences your child may face when accused of a crime can be far-reaching and negatively impact a promising future. Unfortunately, as we know from life experience, there are no promises in life. Instead, it is what we make of it. A juvenile criminal conviction could substantially limit what a child may be able to accomplish in their life.

Attorney Dave Mueller understands that children make mistakes and parents want those mistakes to provide life-lessons. However, a parent never wants to see their child in a situation where the life-lesson may bear life-altering consequences on a future that the child cannot foresee. Consequently, he works with you in an effort to ensure that the juvenile criminal accusations are a speed bump and not a road block on your child’s road to a meaningful future.
