When your child gets in trouble with the law, you will need experienced, competent legal help to make sure that this incident does not scar them for life. The attorneys at the law firm of John N. Fath, P.C. have extensive experience in the Nassau County and Suffolk County Family Courts, where cases involving juvenile crime (below the age of 16) are handled. We know the Judges, the Courts, the District Attorneys and the Probation Officers. Our goal is to achieve an outcome for your son or daughter that will not permanently damage their future.
We handle juvenile crime matters including:
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI)
Driving Without a License
Possession or Sale of Drugs
Assault and Battery
Shoplifting and Burglary
Crimes Against Property
While it is true that the Family Court places a greater emphasis on rehabilitation than on punishment, this does not mean that a juvenile offense is trivial. In especially serious cases, a juvenile can be tried as an adult and be subject to adult punishment, including a long term in prison.
