Juvenile delinquency is a serious issue that could potentially affect the future of your child. At Cox Law Offices, securing the rights of your child in a criminal case is our top priority. While the penalties for a minor in a criminal case vary greatly from those in an adult case, detention and probation are never to be taken lightly. Michael Cox, retained as your juvenile defense attorney, will aggressively fight to reduce these penalties. Another crucial component in juvenile defense cases is whether or not your child will be tried as an adult. Cox Law Offices will work to prevent the prosecutor from binding your child over to the adult court system.
Juvenile defense is not limited to any specific criminal activity. Underage drinking, fighting in school and disorderly conduct are common charges in juvenile cases. However, all criminal charges that adults may be charged with are also possibilities in the juvenile court system. Cox Law Offices will work with you to determine which options are best for your child’s situation, no matter the charge.
