Juvenile Crimes

Protect Your Future With Help From Our Defense Team

People under the age of 18 have the same rights as those of an adult – 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.

We 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.”

Before you talk to the police, contact the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey. We may be able to prevent charges from being filed against your child. Call us at 239-603-6312 or send us an email. We have a track record of success in criminal defense matters.

Obtain A Lawyer Knowledgeable In Representing Juveniles

Our attorneys have nearly 20 years of combined experience protecting the rights of children and their families in the Florida juvenile justice system. Our law firm has defended juveniles against juvenile crime charges that include:

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.

Know What To Expect. You might not know what to do after your child has been arrested, but we do. We can walk you through everything – from the booking process to the trial’s end. We will make you aware of your child’s best options. We can even help your child seal or expunge their record if eligible.
