A Juvenile Conviction

The consequences of a juvenile conviction are far-reaching. If your child has been arrested or detained for a criminal offense, he or she may face incarceration as well as the possibility of having a juvenile record.

Procedures in juvenile cases are different from in adult proceedings. An experienced Juvenile defense lawyer is required to protect your child’s rights. A criminal conviction can have permanent effects on your child’s  future. Guy Seligman is particularly interested in first offenders.

Very often your child may have been arrested by making a bad choice. Labeling theory states that once young people have been labeled as criminal they are more likely to offend. (Eadie & Morley: 2003 p. 552) The idea is that once labelled as deviant a young person may accept that role. As a juvenile defense lawyer Guy Seligman understands this and how important it is to put your  first time juvenile offender back on the right path again. According to Seligman ”We do not want your child to become  a repeat offender”. “Our children are very precious”.
