People under the age of eighteen have the same rights as those of an adult in — the right to remain silent, the right to a lawyer and more. All too often, however, teenagers and their parents speak to law enforcement officials before contacting an attorney, to their detriment.
Call the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey for help BEFORE you talk to the police. We may be able to prevent charges from being filed against your child. Call us at 239-603-6312 or send an e-mail. We are passionate about putting our skills to use defending those most in need of qualified attorneys.
Lawyers at this firm can recount numerous stories of parents who have called us with scenarios like this: "The police called and asked us to come down to the station. We came and had our son tell the cop everything that he knew. Only now do we see the serious trouble that he is in."
Obtain a Lawyer Knowledgeable in Representing Juveniles
Our attorneys have more than 13 years' experience protecting the rights of children and their families in the juvenile justice system. Our law firm has defended juveniles against juvenile crime charges that include:
- Breaking and entering, criminal mischief, juvenile theft
- Driving while under the influence, underage drinking
- Possession of drugs, drug trafficking
- Possession of prescription drugs such as Xanax
- Possession of paraphernalia
- Child molestation, sexual assault, rape
- Criminal traffic violations such as racing at excessive speeds
We Strive to Build Strong, Compelling Cases
The juvenile justice system is geared toward rehabilitation, as opposed to the criminal justice system, which is punishment-oriented. We want to get to know your child and learn the whole story of what happened and the circumstances leading to the arrest. We will use everything we can to present a fuller picture of your teenager — rather than just the moment in time of his or her arrest.
