Juvenile delinquency can cause immediate and irreparable harm to your child’s future. In certain instances, a juvenile record can interfere with your child’s admission to the college of his or her choice and the ability to secure a good job. A minor charged as an adult could face a much more serious penalty and sentence.
Because of their age and inexperience, children often do not comprehend the repercussions of their actions until it is too late. The courts recognize this, and thus, juveniles receive special treatment in the criminal justice system; they are governed by the Code of Juvenile Justice.
At The Neagle Law Firm, we offer sound counsel and aggressive defense of juvenile defendants. We take every step to ensure that a minor stays in juvenile court and fight aggressively to protect his or her future.

Underage Drinking and Driving and Other Juvenile Crimes
Was your child charged with underage alcohol consumption, drug charges, assault, criminal mischief, or any other offense? The consequences can adversely affect your child’s future. Our office can advise you of the legal consequences of a juvenile record. We will develop a defense strategy designed to minimize the effect a criminal charge has on your child’s prospects.
We will give guidance and advice to explain all aspects of the charge and its repercussions. We will evaluate the case and discuss whether your child’s offense is subject to waiver, which allows the state to try your child as an adult offender. Records and expungements and the rehabilitative purpose of the juvenile process are thoroughly explained. Out-of-court resolutions such as Juvenile Conference Committee (JCC) and Intake Services Committee (ISC) are also discussed in detail.
