When a minor child is accused of a crime, the first thing that may come to mind for a parent is whether his or her teen may face jail time. We understand that as a parent, having a child accused of drunk driving, drug possession, sexual assault, or even worse can be a nightmare. What will your child face, and how will his or her future be impacted? At Adams & Luka, we urge you to contact a qualified Winter Springs juvenile defense attorney at once. The Juvenile Justice System in Florida is very different from the system designed for adult offenders, and can be confusing. We will answer all of your questions, and most important of all ensure your child avoids harsh punishment.
In many cases, a basically good teen can get into trouble simply by following the wrong crowd. Teens are easily influenced by others and often make bad choices, never realizing the possible consequences of their actions. No parent believes a child should be severely punished for making a mistake, and neither do the defense lawyers at our firm. While the system for juveniles focuses on rehabilitation instead of harsh punishment or criminal penalties, no parent wants to see his or her child in juvenile detention - or even jail, if charged as an adult. We fight aggressively on behalf of your child and your family, making every effort to help put minors back on the right track.
Our firm has more than 30 years of combined experience, making us the right choice for juveniles accused of crimes. Our areas of focus include, but are not limited to:
When a juvenile is accused of a criminal offense, there are several legal options including diversion programs, counseling, community service, teen court, substance abuse rehabilitation, and other options that often help teens avoid jail time. Ultimately, you want to avoid jail time, a permanent criminal record, and other sanctions that adults often face. A permanent criminal record could have a negative impact on your child's life forever in terms of education, employment, housing, and more. No parent wants a child's future and reputation ruined over a lack of good judgment. Juveniles deserve a second chance, just as we all do as humans. It is vital to work with an attorney who has a thorough understanding and knowledge of the Juvenile Justice System and all legal options so that the best possible result can be reached in your child's case.Contact Adams & Luka Today
Most parents have no experience with the Juvenile Justice System, and do not know what to expect when their child is arrested for underage drinking, theft, assault, drug possession, or any offense. No parent wants a child to be incarcerated, or to have his/her future impacted by a criminal record. There are options, and in some cases it may be possible to have charges dismissed. Just as in adult cases, mistakes or errors can be made by police, or your child's legal rights violated. This may be beneficial to your child's case. We will provide you with the answers you need, and guidance throughout every step of the process, always working toward the best possible resolution.
