A Humane Approach To Juvenile Defense

Perhaps the only thing worse than being accused of or arrested in connection with a crime is having it happen to your child. In Ohio, any conviction as a juvenile can lead to numerous negative consequences. Convictions as a juvenile can hinder acceptance into college, the ability to obtain federal financial aid and access to future employment opportunities.

It is essential that you seek the advice of a knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney to guide your family through the juvenile criminal court system. The attorneys of Fox & Fox Co. L.P.A. will help you make appropriate, informed decisions to best protect your child and minimize the negative impact of the charges on his or her future.

Focusing On Mitigation And Second Chances

The juvenile justice system is supposed to be primarily focused on rehabilitation, not punishment. Young people make mistakes, and it is generally understood that they have the capacity to learn from those mistakes and to mature into responsible, law-abiding adults.

Alternatives to traditional prosecution and sentencing are usually available, but they are not always well-known or disclosed by prosecutors. It is critical to have a legal advocate working to ensure that you and your child understand all of your options.

At Fox & Fox Co. L.P.A., experienced legal advocacy is what we provide. We regularly help young people charged with a variety of offenses, including those related to:

  • Underage drinking
  • Drug possession and sales
  • Assault
  • Theft, vandalism and destruction of property
  • Weapons offenses

At every stage of the process, our goals will be to help you mitigate criminal charges and sentencing and minimize the long-term damage to your child's future. Our lawyers will help you understand the full range of legal options and determine which course of action will likely produce the most favorable resolution.
