Virginia Beach Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney

When Your Child Is in Trouble, Your Family Deserves the Skilled Representation of a Juvenile Crime Lawyer.

Has your child committed a juvenile criminal offense? Whether he or she is charged with shoplifting, driving under the influence (DUI) or other major offense, the team of lawyers at JRLaw, PLC can provide the skilled and compassionate defense you and your family need.

Before becoming an attorney, Jerrell Johnson served as a Virginia Beach police officer for more than 15 years and is backed by a decade of legal experience practicing in Virginia Beach. For much of that time, Jerrell specialized in juvenile crime, dealing with juvenile intake, probation officers, school administration and the prosecuting attorneys assigned to those crimes.

Jerrell and the JRLaw, PLC team are uniquely qualified to represent your child – they know the system intimately and are keenly aware of the emotional and psychological damage that being sent to a juvenile detention center can have on your child’s well-being… and yours.

We accept cases throughout Virginia Beach, including the areas of Newport News, Hampton, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Portsmouth, and Norfolk. Contact us for your free consultation.

Juvenile Crime Penalties

The penalty for a juvenile crime can include probation, community service, and/or rehabilitative treatment. For more serious crimes the judge may send your child to a Juvenile Correction Center or a privately-operated residential facility to serve a sentence.

If your child is in custody for a serious crime, whether it’s underage possession of alcohol, a DUI, assault, theft, shoplifting or a drug-related crime, it is critical to work with an attorney who can properly counsel you and help you prepare for the process of defending the case.

Start your child on the best possible path toward adulthood; ideally with a clean record. It’s what you want. So do we.
