Salt Lake City Juvenile Crimes Lawyer
Defending Minors Who Are Facing Criminal Charges in Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Morgan & Box Elder Counties
Over 70 million Americans are juveniles. Protecting our children from the endangerments and risks they will face in the world daily is a full-time job. As children grow into adolescence, they may be exposed to unwarranted influences from T.V., movies, music, news, peers, and all types of social media. As much as we may wish we could keep them from making mistakes when they are faced with decisions of right and wrong, sometimes we can only protect them after the fact. All children should be treated fairly and not have to suffer the adult consequences of a mistake they have made as a juvenile. At Jardine Law Offices, our expert litigators give you peace of mind knowing your child has the best legal representation possible.

Types Of Juvenile Crimes
It is hard to predict what kinds of criminal situations your child may find themselves in. Whether they are simply following the crowd or acting out, your child may be faced with a situation in which they are unprepared and make an error in judgment. Juveniles are more apt to find themselves in legal trouble for committing one of the following crimes:
- Sex Crimes
- Alcohol Offenses
- Disorderly Conduct
- Marijuana Possession
- Tobacco Offenses
- Curfew Violations
- School Disciplinary Offense
- Traffic Violations
- Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle
The Criminal Justice System does tend to penalize youth less severely than adults. However, do not let the fate of your child rest entirely on the courts without proper representation. Your child will need a juvenile crimes attorney who will take their case seriously and protect their rights. Let Jardine Law Offices give you this assurance. We will make sure your child is a priority and safeguard against undue punishments.
