Juvenile Crimes: How Do I Protect My Child?

As young people grow and experience the world, they may find themselves in trouble with the law. According to the Utah Division of Juvenile Justice Services, 26% of minors in Utah will have some kind of contact with the juvenile justice system. Charges against a child or teen can have a deep impact on parents, siblings, and extended family. These impacts may be lessened with the help of an experienced legal team.

Extensive Experience with Juvenile Defense

The juvenile justice system is separate from the adult system and it has its own set of rules and procedures. These rules can seem daunting and confusing without the right help. The lawyers at Brown, Bradshaw & Moffat have extensive experience navigating the juvenile justice system and getting favorable results for children charged with crimes. In fact, one of our founding partners, Mark Moffat, has been recognized for his expertise in juvenile crimes and has spoken at seminars on the topic and served on numerous committees.
