Annapolis Juvenile Crime Defense Lawyers

Juveniles are treated very differently from adults in the Maryland criminal justice system. Though protected by many of the same constitutional and procedural rights that help ensure fair treatment for adults charged with criminal offenses, the substantial differences between the adult and juvenile court systems mean that you're well advised to work with an experienced attorney who understands the different rules and objectives that apply in each.

To learn about the most effective defense strategies in Maryland juvenile courts, discuss your situation with a knowledgeable defense lawyer at Cochran and Chhabra, LLC in Annapolis. We work with families that need to find constructive approaches to allegations of delinquency against teens and children. We also work with families whose children are exposed to the risk of adult prosecution and punishment for serious felony offenses.

Our familiarity with a wide range of services in different communities and targeted to different behavioral problems can represent a powerful advantage toward addressing a troubled young person's conduct.

If your child is arrested on a criminal charge, it is highly advisable to seek the counsel of an attorney as quickly as possible. Young people are especially vulnerable to manipulation, intimidation or overreaching during police interrogation, and juveniles are frequently convicted by their own statements to police before being advised by an experienced lawyer.
