Fort Collins Juvenile Offense Lawyers

Protecting the Future of Individuals Charged With Juvenile Offenses

When a juvenile is charged with a criminal offense, it is important to take immediate steps to protect the individual and their future. A criminal conviction can impact their life.  Things we take for granted like getting a job, leasing an apartment, getting a loan, and applying to college can be affected.

The focus of Juvenile Court is to provide the individual with education, guidance, and appropriate resources so that issues can be addressed before becoming problems that can not be resolved.  It's important for everyone to work together to avoid long-term consequences as an adult.

At our Fort Collins office, we confidently handle juvenile matters using our 23 years of combined experience as prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys. We understand the concerns parents often have when attempting to help their child. It is essential that legal counsel be retained before speaking with law enforcement. By discussing a strategy with us first, it is possible to ensure that information is provided correctly and in a way that will not compromise the case or your child.

During a free initial consultation at our office, we can discuss the representation we provide to juveniles and their families, which focuses on a wide range of criminal offenses, including:

  • Trespassing
  • Theft
  • Assault
  • Shoplifting
  • Car Hopping
  • Criminal Mischief
  • Possession or Distribution of Drugs
  • Minor in Possession of Alcohol or Minor in Consumption of Alcohol
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Resisting Arrest or Obstructing a Peace Officer
  • Harassment
  • Driving Under the Influence; Driving While Ability Impaired; Underage Drinking and Driving
  • Drug Offenses

We also represent juveniles who are charged with serious and violent crimes, such as assault or weapons offenses.

Charges Involving College-Age Students

In addition to handling juvenile crime cases for minors, we also represent college age students in many different types of criminal matters, including resisting arrest, obstruction, DUI/DWAI, minor in possession of alcohol, assault, trespass, criminal mischief, and drug offenses.  A criminal charge and/or conviction, if not handled properly, could become a permanent record and have long term negative consequences. By taking action, we can work to ensure that the student's future is secure and the charges are reduced/modified or dismissed whenever possible.  Our clients, whether they are adults, college aged, or juveniles, are very important to us and we are dedicated to obtaining the best possible result for each one of them.
