JUVENILE TRAFFIC OFFENSES
Reno Criminal Defense Lawyers – 775-210-1501
Young adults just learning how to drive are likely to be unaware of most of the rules of the road and could inadvertently commit a serious traffic violation. After a juvenile is pulled over and arrested for a traffic offense, this is usually the basis of the defensive argument. In order for the defense to be fully effective at fighting off the harsh consequences of a conviction, proper case preparation, a keen understanding of the law, and good use of the evidence will be necessary.
At Joey Gilbert Law, we are proud defenders of juveniles accused of serious crimes, such as traffic offenses and drug crimes. Whenever we take a case, we approach it as if we are representing a close friend or family member, and use that motivation to fuel us when dealing with the prosecution and opposition. To talk with a Reno juvenile defense attorney who earnestly cares about your child’s future wellbeing, contact our office at your first opportunity for a free case evaluation.
