Juvenile Law

St. Louis Lawyers Providing Juvenile Crime Representation

If your child becomes involved with the juvenile justice system, it is important to have an attorney who knows how juvenile courts operate and the intricacies of dealing with the Missouri Division of Youth Services. Moreover, it is critical to have a lawyer who is focused on your kid and is committed to seeking the best possible outcome for him or her.

Juvenile crime charges, although the records are sealed, can follow young people for many years and affect their futures significantly. Parents owe it to their kids to try to get them back on track whenever possible. At the criminal defense firm of Richard H. Sindel, Inc., we advocate for kids and their parents in a wide variety of matters. Our goal is to prevent children from being taken into a residential care or treatment facility, away from their families and communities.

Examples Of Juvenile Criminal Matters

We always seek treatment and community-based programs for kids who have been pulled into the system for alleged:

  • Drug crimes
  • Underage drinking
  • Stealing
  • Assaults
  • Robbery and burglary
  • Car theft
  • School violations
  • Curfew violations
  • Truancy
  • Vandalism
  • Sexting

One of our attorneys will talk with your child to obtain his or her version of events, review any surveillance videos available, negotiate with the prosecutor, seek treatment avenues for drug or alcohol problems and do whatever is necessary to get your kid back on track.
