Las Vegas Juvenile Crimes Attorney
Nevada Juvenile Defense Lawyer Working to Protect Your Child’s Rights
Juvenile Crimes court takes a much more rehabilitative approach than criminal court. Our goal is the same, and for us, that means keeping a juvenile accused of a crime out of detention, under the care of his parents and unburdened by a criminal record that will affect his or her future. We push to hold the juvenile system to the standard it sets forth, and that is protecting your child’s rights.
At the Law Offices of Michael I. Gowdey, we handle juvenile crime cases across Nevada. We understand that the juvenile justice system works differently. With more than 29 years of experience, you can rely on our legal knowledge and aggressive approach to help you protect your child.
Vigorous Representation for Juvenile Crimes
In juvenile cases, minors are accused of breaking the same kinds of laws as adults. We handle juvenile crime cases involving:
- Drug charges
- Sex crimes
- Violent Crimes
- Weapons Charges
What is different is how the juvenile court system approaches these charges. Michael Gowdey’s first goal in taking a juvenile criminal case is to make sure that it stays in the juvenile system. If there is even a remote possibility that your child may have to stand before an adult court, the need for aggressive, determined and experienced representation is impossible to over state.
But, even in the juvenile justice system, some crimes can carry severe penalties and even inflict a permanent stain onto an adult record. We put forward proven strategies for helping you keep your child at home and his or her future untainted. Just like with our adult clients, the goal is to clear your child’s name, protect his or her rights and preserve his or her freedom.
