Juvenile Law

It's Your Kid's Future. We Fight To Protect It.

Raleigh, North Carolina, Juvenile Crimes Defense Lawyer

If your son or daughter is under 16 years of age and has been charged with a criminal offense, the key to an effective defense is keeping the case in the juvenile justice system. In the North Carolina criminal justice system, teenagers can be tried as an adult. That means that your child faces time in an adult prison, as well as a criminal record that won't go away if his or her case is moved into adult court.

At Roberts Law Group, PLLC, in Raleigh, our primary goal is ALWAYS to keep your kid out of the adult system. We work hard to find ways to reduce felony charges to misdemeanors whenever possible. Contact our criminal defense firm online today or at 877-880-5753 for a free consultation about how we can help protect your son or daughter's future.

Kids Make Mistakes. At Roberts Law Group, PLLC, We Fight For Second Chances

Our team of criminal defense professionals at Roberts Law Group, believes that a mistake made as a teenager shouldn't ruin a promising future; a lifetime is too long to pay for the mistakes made while young. Our founding criminal defense attorney Patrick Roberts, served as a prosecutor in three North Carolina counties prior to building a law firm focused on the rights of the accused. We understand what juvenile court judges expect to see in an effective defense. Because we have earned respect and a reputation for integrity among prosecutors, judges and court officials, we are able to work together to fight for the best possible outcome for your child, including finding options such as community service and alternative programs that don't include court-imposed obligations or jail.

We can handle your child's defense against any charge, including:

  • Assault, violent crime
  • Gang-related crime, minor charged as adult
  • Sexual assault
  • Drug charges
  • DWI defense, minor in possession of alcohol
  • Theft, stolen property
  • ID theft, check forgery
  • Computer crimes
  • Federal charges

Juvenile records are sealed when your child turns 16. An adult record, however, is open to the public unless it can be expunged. Our criminal defense lawyers can explain the juvenile and adult court process and answer any questions you have about your son or daughter's case.
