Experienced Juvenile Crime Defenders
Many charges against juveniles are relatively minor, but juveniles are also charged with the same crimes as adults. Our firm represents minor clients in all types of charges including:
- Underage drinking
- Possession of a fake id
- School truancy
- School fighting
- Traffic violations
- Drag racing
- Drunk driving
- Drug charges
- Retail theft/shoplifting
- Weapons charges
- Sex crimes
When a minor gets in trouble with the law, it can affect the entire family. It is difficult for parents to see their children facing criminal charges. The first instinct of most parents is to protect their child no matter what. At the same time, parents may feel their child is traveling down a dangerous path and need help getting their child back on the straight and narrow. Attorney Peter M. Tumminaro has decades of experience working with juveniles who have been accused of crimes. A former prosecutor for 8 years, Mr. Tumminaro has seen criminal cases from both sides. He understands these sensitive proceedings and the challenges families face when navigating the juvenile justice system.
Our firm works with clients and the court to minimize the negative impact criminal charges can have on a young person’s life. If a child is falsely accused, we are aggressive in building a strong defense. We believe everyone deserves a chance to learn and grow from their mistakes, and we make sure our clients are treated fairly by the juvenile system. Whenever possible, we look to take advantage of alternative sentencing programs so our clients can avoid boot camp and juvenile detention.
