Juvenile Offenses

Contact Us


In Maine, we have special courts and procedures for juveniles charged with crimes. Juvenile courts differ from the adult system in that their collective goal, including that of the judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys, is to work in the best interest of the juvenile. We want to do all we can to help them become responsible, productive members of society.

Because of this different approach, it’s key to find an attorney who is familiar with the complexities of the system. Our experience working with juveniles and their families as well as our extensive connections with prosecutors and juvenile community correction officers means we are able to provide an unparalleled defense for your child.
