Juvenile cases are serious matters. A single first offense could jeopardize a child’s education and scholarship chances, damage his or her reputation, and even result in removal from the safety of his or her home. The good news is that the juvenile justice system in Georgia focuses more on rehabilitation than incarceration. With the help of the right juvenile defense attorney at Miles Hansford, LLC, you may be able to get the system to work in your favor and keep your child out of a detention center.
If your son or daughter has been arrested and charged with a juvenile offense or is scheduled to appear in a Georgia juvenile court, you must act quickly to protect your child.
Choose an Attorney Experienced with Juvenile Cases
Unlike courts for adult defendants or courts in which juveniles are tried as adults, children under the age of 18 go before specific prosecutors and judges. This means that defense attorneys who are familiar with those juvenile court judges, prosecutors, social workers, DFCS workers and school officials can help your child avoid a life of crime. Attorney Brian Hansford knows the intricacies of the juvenile court system and will make sure that your child gets fair representation.
Under Mr. Hansford’s guidance, we provide representation to juveniles and their families when facing a wide range of offenses, including:
- Underage drinking
- Underage DUI (driving while intoxicated)
- Minor in possession (of alcohol, tobacco, marijuana or other drugs)
- Drug crimes
- Assault and battery
- Cybercrimes, such as identity theft
- Traffic offenses
We understand that when you call a juvenile defense lawyer, you’re in a critical hour. We work to protect your child’s identity and reputation and help keep his or her criminal record clean throughout the process. We understand that most kids make mistakes and bad decisions at some point in their lives, which is why we provide outstanding legal representation for all kinds of juvenile court cases.
