Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney in New York, New York
When a child is being investigated for a serious crime, law enforcement will not be lenient. They may look to secure evidence in an attempt to put your child behind bars for a very long time. In some cases, children may be tried as adults in the New York criminal court system - resulting in adult penalties and sentencing. This can be very devastating when a child is thrust into a system meant for adults. The New York juvenile crimes lawyers at the Law Offices of Brian D. Perskin have excellent defense skills that can be very useful against over-zealous law enforcement officers. We will negotiate and challenge evidence in an attempt to lower charges, seek alternative sentencing or have charges dropped altogether.
