Juvenile Defense Cases We Handle

Choosing the right attorney for your child's case can be the wisest decision you make. The Merchant Law Firm has spent nearly two decades representing juveniles who have been charged with a variety of crimes.

We are capable of defending against any allegation you or your child may be facing, including:

While the type of allegation your child faces affects how they are prosecuted and penalized, any penalties they might experience can have a significant impact on their future. Employers will be hesitant to trust a juvenile with a criminal record and will be very hesitant to place them in a higher position of authority or responsibility.

They may even refuse to hire them, at all. Additionally, there are a variety of circumstances that can result in harsher punishments, including the inability to expunge a conviction after the age of 18 and the possibility that your child may be prosecuted as an adult.

Only the severest of cases may result in an adult trial for a juvenile offender. Children and youth have suffered full criminal sentencing for grievous offenses in the past, such as murder in the first degree or aggravated manslaughter. Most cases result in residential rehabilitation or probation, but some cases may land your child in jail or state prison. No matter what you do, be sure to hire a competent defense attorney to fight their charges!

Although our skills and abilities are precisely what you need, our genuine support and commitment to your child's future is what you deserve during these difficult times!
