In Virginia, Juvenile Criminal Charges are governed by unique rules and regulations. It is important to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney if your son or daughter has been charged with a crime.
Henrico Juvenile Defense Attorneys
The attorneys at BoykoNapier have a wealth of experience with Juvenile Criminal offenses. This experience, along with experience handling a wide variety of family law matters, enables our attorneys to advocate effectively on behalf of our clients.
Typically, Juvenile Criminal Cases are handled and resolved in Juvenile Court. However, there are certain circumstances where the case may be handled in Circuit Court (i.e. if the decision of the Juvenile Court is appealed, or if the Juvenile is tried as an adult).
Rehabilitation: In Juvenile cases, rehabilitation is often an overriding theme. Most children deserve a second (or even a third) chance. That being said, it is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss pretrial maneuvers that could help with the final outcome in the case.
