The Juvenile Justice System Can Leave Your Child Behind

A bad action does not make a bad child. But studies show that being in juvenile detention significantly lowers a child’s chance of graduating high school and can increase their chances of adult criminal detention by almost 25 percent. We know that Lawrenceville and Gwinnett County parents want what’s best for their children. And, as a person who was wrongfully arrested, Mr. Kim knows the fear and worry you and your child are feeling.

We can put together a strong juvenile defense strategy to keep your child from Georgia juvenile detention and protect his or her future.

A Parent Isn’t Always Enough

If your child is facing criminal charges, the best way to protect them is to hire a diligent defense lawyer. At Philip Kim Law, P.C., we know your child isn’t bad. Mistakes happen. Whether the best option for your family is diversion, counseling or another option, we’ll stand by your family to help get the best outcome possible for you.

Some of the common juvenile crimes that we handle include:

  • Shoplifting or theft-related matters
  • Drug possession whether marijuana or prescription drugs passed around
  • Underage alcohol consumption

We will work with you to make sure that any improperly collected evidence is excluded from court, any statements your child may have said to the police without you or another guardian are treated properly, and extenuating circumstances like family upheaval or problems at school are considered by the court.

If your child is tried as an adult or has committed a crime that lasts on their adult criminal record, we are prepared to help get that information expunged or sealed by the court. One mistake shouldn’t follow a child forever.
