When representing juveniles, we have one main goal: to ensure that they are not charged as adults or treated as adults by the legal system.
For example, destruction of property and trespassing charges are the same, except that one is a felony offense and the other is a misdemeanor. I work aggressively on behalf of my clients to get the charges against them reduced or dismissed to minimize the negative consequences.
The most important thing for young drivers and their parents to remember is that, depending upon the type of violation, a traffic ticket conviction could have significant, negative consequences because any subsequent tickets can result in license suspension. Do not just pay your traffic ticket!
Georgia uses a point system for traffic violations. The amount of points assigned to your driving record for conviction of a serious traffic offense varies and exceeding the amount allowed leads to a suspension of your license.
It is crucial that you consult with a skilled attorney to minimize any consequences to your driving privileges. Don't wait until you receive a notice of revocation in the mail.
We have represented minors facing a wide range of charges, including underage drinking violations, drunk driving, drug possession/distribution, and many types of misdemeanor and felony charges for violent crimes.
