Juvenile Offenses

Protect Your Child From Grown-Up Charges

If your child has been charged with a juvenile crime, it is crucial that you consult an experienced attorney as soon as possible. Attorney Lisa Wells formerly was a prosecutor in juvenile court and is familiar with the different procedures in juvenile court. Her knowledge has significant importance and can benefit your child's defense and case. She will meet with both you and your child to review the case, address your questions and concerns, and discuss the best options for your child.

Navigating An Unfamiliar System

In Georgia, the juvenile criminal law system differs significantly from the adult system. As a parent, it is essential to hire an attorney who understands the difference. Experienced in juvenile court and knowledgeable in the rights of children, Lisa Wells will work to protect your child and to overcome his or her criminal allegations so he or she may have a better future.

Among the most common offenses committed by minors are the following:

• Underage drinking and/or DUI
• Drug possession and/or distribution
• Using a fake ID
• Shoplifting
• Criminal trespass
• Disorderly conduct
• Assault
• Battery
• Vandalism
• Truancy
• Curfew violations
• Gang activity

Ms. Wells will navigate your child's case through the legal process, researching all defenses and alternatives in an effort to avoid sentencing and potential jail time. She advocates for counseling, treatment and community service rather than punishment resulting in a record, in order to help your child get back on track for long-term success.
