Protecting Your Children And Their Rights
If your son or daughter has been charged with a criminal offense, you will want his or her case properly handled by an experienced attorney who will do everything possible to achieve a favored result. A criminal conviction for a juvenile can have long-lasting consequences, affecting future college and career opportunities and more.
At the Law Offices of Amanda L. H. Brinton LLC, the importance of finding the right legal solutions for your son’s or daughter’s juvenile case is a top priority. As a seasoned juvenile defense lawyer, Ms. Brinton will work vigorously to ensure that your child is treated fairly and that the adverse consequences of criminal charges are minimized, reduced, or dismissed, where possible. For more than a decade, we have represented juveniles in Wilmington and across New Castle County, fighting to ensure that their rights are protected.
A Decade Of Experience With Juvenile Cases
Our firm handles all types of juvenile cases, including those involving:
- Drug possession and other drug charges
- Gang activity
- Underage drinking
- DUI charges
- Shoplifting, including theft and burglary
- Reckless driving and other traffic violations
- Assault, including sexual assault
- Property crimes
Convictions of these crimes can result in juvenile detention, jail, fines, restitution and driver’s license suspensions, even in cases that are not alcohol related.
For first-time juvenile offenders, available alternatives to conviction may be sought which can minimize or eliminate the negative consequences that might affect your child’s future. These consist of diversion programs, probation or other court adjudications.
Having a knowledgeable and skilled juvenile defense lawyer handling your son’s or daughter’s case as soon as possible can have a dramatic impact on how the case evolves and in its final outcome. We take these cases very seriously. In more serious felony cases, Ms. Brinton will work vigorously to keep the case from being transferred to an adult court from juvenile court. In all cases, she will take every measure to create a strong and effective defense strategy that will benefit your child.
