Phoenix Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney
Juvenile Crimes Lawyer in Phoenix, Arizona
As a Phoenix criminal defense lawyer, Joshua S. Davidson sees many cases dealing with juvenile crimes. Juvenile crimes include the same offenses that can be committed by adults and the majority of juvenile arrests in Arizona are made on account of theft, simple assault, drug abuse, disorderly conduct and curfew violations by people under the age of 18.
Juvenile offenses are extremely serious and if convicted, a child’s life can be severely negatively affected. Children convicted of juvenile crimes often face diminished employment opportunities and a significant reduction in quality of schooling and social standing. Sometimes a child’s brief error in judgment can result in long term consequences, so it is important that they receive experienced legal representation to ensure the quality of their future.
