Scottsdale Juvenile Defense Attorney

Has Your Child Been Arrested and Charged 
with a Crime?

When one’s child has been arrested and charged with a crime, you are no doubt extremely concerned about their future. Will they spend time in jail or prison? Is their future completely ruined if convicted? These are all real concerns, and any parent who is interested in their child’s future is probably seeking a high quality Scottsdale criminal defense lawyer.

If you are looking for a criminal defense lawyer who is familiar with juvenile crimes and the juvenile court, it is highly recommended that you contact the Law Offices of Randall J. Craig. Attorney Craig has been successfully defending countless juveniles charged with crimes and misdemeanors for years, and is well-known and respected in both juvenile and adult criminal court.

Juvenile Crime Defense Lawyer in Scottsdale

It is critical in any felony charges that the case is not moved to adult court. The prosecution often tries to have the case moved, based on the seriousness of the crime. This is the first action that may be necessary to fight in a serious juvenile crime charge. The juvenile court system is set up to rehabilitate young offenders, and has many more options than adult court which tends to be interested in punishment.

If the charge is less serious, such as a DUI charge, it is still crucial for your child’s future, as such things as college applications can become an issue. Arizona has the “zero tolerance” policy in underage DUI charges, and even a .01% blood alcohol level will result in an underage DUI charge; a conviction can restrict your child from driving for a long period of time. 

With serious crime charges, a juvenile defendant needs an attorney that has the best interests of the young person as the top priority. Many young people have completely learned their lesson just by being arrested and charged. An extended stay in the juvenile detention center is not likely to improve the opportunities in your child’s future.

The legal team at the Law Offices of Randall J. Craig will fight aggressively on behalf of your child, and will make every legal effort to have the charges dismissed or reduced. Should the case go to trial, there is no jury in a juvenile case and it will be decided by a judge. The quality of the defense lawyer fighting on behalf of the young person is critical to the outcome of the case -- don’t take chances with your child’s future.

Our Client Success Stories

    “ I ended up spending twice as much for bumbling incompetence. I received more good advice FREE from Randall than the bum I paid. If I need a Lawyer again in AZ, it will be Randall.”
    I screwed up bad by not getting this lawyer. He gave me a flat rate which I thought was a little high for what seemed like a slam dunk case. I stupidly went for another lawyer's sales pitch who promised to go after corrupt cops (he didn't). I ended up spending twice as much for bumbling incompetence. I received more good advice FREE from Randall than the bum I paid. If I need a Lawyer again in AZ, it will be Randall.

    “His assistant Jennifer Prescott is amazing and between the two of them I was always informed. And they always kept me calm. Randy saved my life and saved my families life as well. Thank you Randy”
    I was facing 50+ years in prison for false charges. Randy believed in me. My public defender tried to convince me that Jail and years of intense probation were my only option. I then hired Randy. 3 months later my case was dismissed and I am now at home with my family and get to watch my son grow up. His assistant Jennifer Prescott is amazing and between the two of them I was always informed. And they always kept me calm. Randy saved my life and saved my families life as well. Thank you Randy. I have a "checkered past" to say the least and have dealt with over 10 attorneys in my life. Randy is head and shoulders above the rest! THANK YOU RANDY!!
