Attorney Roberto A. Bihar Can Help
When a minor under the age of 17 is accused of violating the law, he or she will typically not face legal proceedings in criminal court. These cases are handled in juvenile court, a special court system for minors. In Michigan, juvenile court is a part of family court. When particularly serious and/or violent crimes are involved, however, a minor may be tried as an adult in criminal court.
Representing minors in Waterford and the surrounding communities in Michigan, Roberto A. Bihar is intimately familiar with the juvenile court system and minors’ rights. He also understands what factors come into play when the prosecuting attorney determines whether to try a minor as an adult.
He uses his experience as a Waterford juvenile crime lawyer to tirelessly protect his young clients’ rights in the face of allegations involving:
- Truancy, running away, curfew violations, and other status offenses
- Graffiti and vandalism
- Drug possession, drug use, or drug distribution/sales
- Underage drinking
- Underage DUI
- Trespassing and other property violations
- Gang-related crimes
- Assault and battery
When your child’s future is on the line, do not leave the case in the hands of an inexperienced or passive attorney. Call (248) 291-3368 and find out how Attorney Bihar can fight for your son or daughter.
