Tips for choosing a juvenile defense attorney in North Carolina

If your child is facing criminal charges in North Carolina, you might not know what to do next. Do you get an attorney? Do you have the child plead guilty? Do you risk representing the child yourself in court? These are all questions that will likely go through your head. The bottom line is that you need a juvenile defense attorney and here are some tips for choosing one.

One of the first questions you need to ask a potential defense attorney is what experience he or she has in defending juveniles. This is very important and can weed out attorneys who have zero experience taking on and winning juvenile cases in Charlotte. Along the same lines, you need to find out if the attorney has experience with the specific charges facing your child.

Ask the juvenile defense attorney about outcomes they have obtained in similar cases they've handled. Find out the sentencing that has been issued, if charges were dropped, if the child was given probation or if his or her record was expunged.

Make sure the attorney explains all of the possible outcomes of your child's case to you. This is important because you want an honest understanding of what could happen. Possible outcomes include probation, community service, dropped charges, restitution and more.

Talk to the attorney about the strategy he or she would recommend using in your child's case based on the charges filed.

Choosing the right juvenile defense attorney for your child can make or break his or her case. Make sure you follow the tips outlined in this post for choosing the attorney so you can best protect the rights of your child.
