The Farrell Lavin team of experienced Attorneys Offers Juvenile Legal Services

Deliquency

We represent minors who have been accused of committing crimes and are facing juvenile court proceedings. Our practice focuses on working to ensure that the minor’s rights are protected and that they receive fair treatment throughout the legal process. We may also advocate for alternatives to incarceration, such as diversion programs or community service, that are appropriate for the minor’s age and circumstances.

Status Offenses

Status offenses are acts that are only illegal when committed by minors, such as truancy, curfew violations, or underage drinking. We develop deep working relationships with these minors and their families to address the underlying issues that led to the offense and help prevent future delinquent behavior.

Dependency

We represent minors who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or other reasons. We work to ensure that the minor’s rights are protected and that they are placed in a safe and appropriate living environment. This also involves careful and strategic diplomacy working with social services agencies, like the Department of Children and Families (“DCF”) to provide services and support to the minor and their family to help reunify them.

Other Issues

In addition, juvenile law attorneys may also assist minors and their families with a variety of other legal issues, including education, immigration, and mental health issues.
