DuPage County School Crimes and Truancy Lawyers
Protecting Juveniles from the Consequences of Childhood Indiscretions
When your child is convicted of a crime, the conviction can haunt your son or daughter for years in many ways. An experienced juvenile law attorney can protect your child’s future by skillfully protecting your child’s rights in juvenile proceedings. Our top juvenile crimes attorneys at Ramsell & Associates, LLC have been protecting the rights and future of young people in Illinois from youthful mistakes for over two decades.
Our experienced DuPage juvenile defense lawyers represent minors and their parents against school-related criminal charges. These matters might include the following:
- Domestic Violence Allegations by a Girlfriend/Boyfriend;
- Vandalism/Destruction of Property;
- Statutory Rape/Date Rape;
- Drug Charges Arising from Searches on School Grounds;
- Underage Drugs or Drinking;
- Gang-Related Activities;
- School Fights (Assault and Battery); and
- Mitigating the Impact of Truancy and School Crimes.
If your son or daughter is charged in juvenile court in DuPage County or the surrounding areas of Illinois, the objective is rehabilitation rather than punishment. Our juvenile lawyers investigate to identify viable defenses that might result in the dismissal of charges or an acquittal. If the facts and circumstances do not make such an outcome viable, our juvenile crimes lawyers at Ramsell & Associates, LLC persuasively emphasize the importance of leniency involving youthful offenses. Our DuPage juvenile defense attorneys will advocate alternatives to incarceration that include probation, community service, good behavior programs, family counseling, drug or alcohol rehabilitation, jail tours, restitution and staying in school.
When representing minors charged with damaging school property or possessing marijuana on a school campus, we consider more than just the immediate consequences of a particular disposition or plea agreement. We consider all short-term and long-term consequences like the impact on collegiate sports eligibility, future employment, financial aid qualification and other aspects of a minor’s life.
