Minnesota Juvenile Law Attorneys
When a juvenile is accused of criminal activity, the first thing that comes to mind for the accused and their family is what impact will the charges have on their future? Will the juvenile be able to get a job, participate in sports, or get into college? If convicted, will the record follow the juvenile for the remainder of their life?

The juvenile criminal defense attorneys at Dudley and Smith, P.A. can help you answer these previous questions while guiding you through the criminal defense process.

For some offenses, a juvenile can be charged and tried as an adult, which carries with it more severe punishment under the law.
