If my child commits a crime, do I need a special lawyer?
If your child has committed a crime, it's important to hire a criminal lawyer who has experience handling juvenile defense cases. The juvenile criminal system is completely separate from the criminal system for adults, and has its own courts, judges, and legal protocol. It's important to work with an attorney who understands the laws and regulations governing juvenile cases, and who is familiar with representing clients before a judge in juvenile court. Attorney Matthew T. McNally has handled countless juvenile defense cases, and can provide your child with personal attention and a strong defense to increase his or her chances of avoiding a criminal conviction and adverse penalties.
