Juveniles and youth crime

As part of our expertise in police investigations and criminal defence, we advise juveniles (young people under the age of 18) who are being investigated for a criminal offence or who are being prosecuted in the youth court.

For a young person and their parents or carers, this can be a very daunting and stressful experience. Our specialist youth crime lawyers will steer you through the process and procedure and, where possible, seek to persuade the prosecuting authorities not to prosecute. We are totally committed to achieving the best outcome for our clients and to providing them with all the guidance and assistance they require. Young people in particular need to feel reassured and supported through this difficult time.

Our lawyers have expertise in acting for young people facing investigation and charges for a variety of offences including sexual offences, drugs, public order, common assault, ABH, GBH, theft and fraud. On many occasions we have successfully negotiated with the police and the CPS to prevent a charge.

We are available 24 hours a day and can help from the moment of arrest, through police station procedures and charge and in all subsequent court hearings.
