Fairfax Juvenile Defense Attorney
Defense Lawyer in Fairfax Virginia and Washington D.C.
When a minor commits a crime, he/she will face repercussions in the juvenile court system, rather than the adult court system. The juvenile justice system is meant to rehabilitate offenders rather than to simply punish them. However, certain serious criminal offenses committed by a minor may result in that minor being tried in adult court. This should be avoided at all costs.
Because the juvenile court system in Virginia operates on different rules and procedures than the regular criminal court system, you will need to work with a lawyer who is specifically experienced with defending cases in juvenile court. At the Law Office of McGennis Williams, we have the know-how and familiarity with Virginia juvenile courts and understand how to aggressively defend the rights of minors who have been accused of crimes. Some of the types of juvenile crime cases a Fairfax juvenile defense attorney at our firm can handle include:

Teenagers often make mistakes, as they may be easily influenced by peers or by older children or adults who they look up to. Don’t hesitate in consulting a juvenile defense attorney if your child has been arrested or has been accused of a criminal offense of any kind, no matter how minor it may seem. When a defense attorney gets involved in your case early on, this can result in charges never being filed or being dropped before the case reaches juvenile court.
