Keeping Case in Juvenile Court System

If your minor child has been charged with a crime, you will need a Kalamazoo juvenile crimes attorney. We can discuss your child's situation with the prosecutors and referees who will hear the case and help keep your child out of juvenile detention.

The prosecution will often attempt to certify a minor as an adult. Our first concern is to keep the case under the jurisdiction of the juvenile court system, where the focus is more on rehabilitation and treatment, not punishment.

Protecting Your Future From Juvenile Criminal Charges

At Willis Law in Michigan, we focus on protecting your son's or daughter's juvenile record. Under some circumstances, we may be able to keep a juvenile conviction off of your child's record until he or she is 30 years old. A criminal record can limit future options for employment and education. If your child has more than one conviction, he or she can never clear his or her record through expungement, so it is important to hire an attorney to make sure the child's record is protected.
