In Maine we have special courts and procedures for juveniles charged with crimes. Unlike the adult system where rehabilitation often takes a backseat to punishment, the juvenile courts have the stated goal of assisting juveniles in becoming responsible and productive members of society. The judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys are all working to ensure that all outcomes are considered with the best interest of the juvenile in mind.
Because of this different, more sensible approach to the juvenile justice system, finding an attorney who is familiar with the many options available is essential. My years of working with juvenile clients in Maine gives me strong experience and connections to other experts in the field so I can provide my juvenile clients with the thorough, careful representation they need.
