Duluth Juvenile Crimes Attorney
There is greater urgency to take quick action in juvenile crime cases than in almost any other criminal matters. While young people are particularly vulnerable to outside influences, they may also be more easily convinced to make better choices.
It’s for this reason that the juvenile crimes attorneys at the Law Offices of David C. Keegan and Mikkel A. Long treat these matters delicately. We handle juvenile delinquency cases carefully because we do not want to see mistakes made that could cost a young person his or her future or continued liberty.
Duluth Criminal Defense Representation For Young People And Parents
Because of the unique requirements concerning young people, juvenile court procedures in Minnesota are different from those in adult criminal court. It takes experienced attorneys to understand the best approach when it comes to trying these cases. David Keegan and Mikkel Long have more than 50 years’ combined experience providing such representation.
Young people often make foolish decisions that result in serious criminal charges. The mistakes they may make can have long-lasting effects if a criminal matter involving a young person is not dealt with immediately. On any given weekend, we see young people in juvenile lockup facing property crimes, domestic assault or drug charges. Court-appointed attorneys may not be available shortly after an arrest has taken place — when the young person and parent require legal advice. We almost invariably return our telephone calls — even on holidays and weekends.
David and Mikkel are lawyers who are available and provide immediate services. They understand that this may be the first time either the child or parent has had to deal with the criminal court system, and will therefore deal with your specific problem with understanding and compassion.
