Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers

Handcuffing to tight or forcefully unconsitutional

The Fourth Amendment is violated if a person is handcuffed unduly tightly or excessively forcefully.

Juvenile delinquency law is a unique in that it combines both civil law and criminal law. While juvenile delinquency law was initially meant to rehabilitate young offenders, it has changed into an area in which juvenile records and adjudications can follow your children into their adulthood. Many people do not realize that juvenile adjudications typically stay on a criminal record until the child reaches the age of 31-years-old. In some cases, an experienced juvenile defense attorney will know how to take advantage of programs and court rules that will allow for a record to be purged at 18-years-old.

If your child is charged with a felony, misdemeanor or other delinquent conduct, the Juvenile Defense Attorneys with LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. can provide a caring, dedicated and passionate defense.

EXPERIENCED DEFENSE ATTORNEYS FOR MINORS

Many lawyers exclusively handle adult criminal cases or have general practices where they rarely, if ever, handle a juvenile delinquency case. Loren Dickstein and Randy Lewis have, collectively, almost 40 years of juvenile delinquency defense experience at the trial and appellate levels.

The juvenile defense lawyers with LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., know the juvenile justice system in Michigan, the judges, referees, prosecutors, police, and the resources available to help young people. We represent children and teens facing criminal charges throughout Michigan and Juvenile, Macomb County, Washtenaw County, Wayne County and Livingston County.

JUVENILE COURT PENALTIES

Another common misconception in juvenile delinquency law is the belief that juvenile offenders face the same maximum penalties that an adult would face if charged with a similar offense. Under juvenile law, misdemeanors and felonies do not have maximum or minimum jail sentences. In fact, even for what would be a 90-day misdemeanor if committed by an adult, a juvenile can be held in custody until his or her 19th birthday, and under some circumstances, even longer.

PROTECTING YOUR CHILD’S FUTURE
