College Park Juvenile Crimes Defense Lawyer
Representing Students from UMCP and Other Colleges
The goal of juvenile court is rehabilitation - not punishment. However, this is not always practiced, as juveniles convicted of crimes are often severely punished.
If you have been charged with a crime - or if you are seeking legal help for your child - contact the Law Offices of Steven M. Jacoby. I have over 37 years of experience representing minors who have been charged with crimes. I work hard to avoid a criminal conviction and minimize the impact the charges have on your life. Call my College Park law office at 301-779-5560 or 800-864-4488.
Defending Minors Charged With Crimes
At the Law Offices of Steven M. Jacoby, I defend minors charged with a range of criminal offenses:
- DUI / DWI / drunk driving
- Underage drinking
- Drug possession or distribution
- Other drug offenses
- Theft, burglary, shoplifting, auto theft
- Violent crimes
- Sex crimes, rape
Depending on the crime, a juvenile convicted of a crime could face jail or prison time, license suspension, mandatory sexual offender registry, and other penalties.
Not all attorneys have experience in juvenile court. I do, and I know how to navigate the system to obtain the most favorable resolution of my clients' cases. Juvenile court moves at a faster pace; juvenile court uses different terminology; juvenile court has a different system of punishment than the adult system. If you have been charged with a crime, or your son or daughter is facing charges, you need an attorney who fully understands the complexities of the juvenile system.
Representing College Students
I represent students of the University of Maryland College Park (UMCP) and other Maryland colleges who have been charged with criminal offenses, academic dishonesty, and student misconduct. I represent young people in criminal court as well as college Judicial Hearings.
