Vancouver Juvenile Defense Attorney

Most kids get into some form of trouble at some point in their early lives. If your child has been charged with a juvenile criminal offense, though, he or she could face significant long-term consequences.

Many parents believe that a conviction in juvenile court automatically goes away when their child turns 18. But in Washington, juvenile convictions are treated largely the same as adult convictions and can negatively affect your child's prospects for college and employment. An experienced juvenile defense attorney can be an invaluable resource as you try to decide how to handle the matter and protect your child's future.
