Representing Juvenile Offenders

While punishments for delinquent conduct are generally less severe than for adult convictions, juvenile offenses should never be taken lightly, as they can have a lasting impact on a child's life, potentially making it difficult to gain college admittance, join the military, or obtain certain employment.
