Defense Representation Committed to Protecting Your Rights

Juvenile Crimes Attorneys in Tacoma

Providing Effective & Experienced Defense for Minors

Juvenile crimes, also known in some cases as juvenile offending, are those criminal or illegal offenses committed by individuals under the age of 18. Since juveniles are minors and not adults, they are typically not tried as adults. However, depending on the severity and nature of the offense, juveniles may sometimes be tried as adults. If your child has been arrested for any type of crime, it is important that you enlist the help of a skilled and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney in Tacoma. At Groves Law Offices, we have helped defend juveniles against a wide range of offenses.

How Does the Juvenile Court System Work?

When adults are tried for crimes, the focus is typically put on the consequences or penalties associated with the conviction. In most cases, the juvenile justice system is focused on rehabilitation, rather than incarceration. However, having experienced representation on your side is still essential, as there is no guarantee that your child will receive a lightened approach. At Groves Law Offices, we are extremely well-versed in Washington criminal procedures and the way the juvenile court system works.

We can defend your child against a wide range of offenses, such as:

  • DUI
  • Theft crimes
  • Certain sex crimes
  • Property crimes
  • Arson
  • Underage possession
  • Underage drinking
  • Shoplifting
  • Vandalism
