If your child has been charged with a juvenile offense, you want to know that they have a caring and dedicated advocate working on their behalf to protect their rights. You can find the experienced and dedicated representation you require at the Law Offices of Horwitz & Citro, P.A., in Orlando, Florida.
Our Orlando juvenile crime defense lawyers offer more than 30 years of experience in criminal defense. We handle juvenile cases with the same passion and determination as every other criminal case we handle.
Your child needs a strong defense; do not make the mistake of assuming that a juvenile offense is an insignificant matter. Do not assume that the prosecution or judge will go easy on them just because they are juveniles. Many parents do not understand that colleges can and do ask about juvenile records. Applications for some professions, such as law enforcement, teaching, and attorneys, may inquire about a juvenile record and may take such matters very seriously.
We are focused on protecting your child's record, rights, and freedom. Our Orlando criminal defense lawyers will examine the facts of your case and determine if there are any police errors or weaknesses in the prosecution's case that we can use to fight the charges at trial or to help negotiate a favorable resolution with the prosecutor.
If your child's alleged offense is minor in nature, if the prosecution does not have a strong case, or if your child does not have any prior record, we may be able to negotiate a resolution that will help your child protect their record. If your child has several prior offenses or has committed a high-level offense such as burglary of an inhabited home, rape, assault with a deadly weapon or another serious offense, we may be able to pursue a plea to a lesser offense that will look much better on their record and minimize the penalties they receive. If the prosecution takes a hard stance and is unwilling to be reasonable, we can fight the charges at trial.
Attorney Mark Horwitz is a Board Certified Specialist in Criminal Trial Law, as certified by the Florida Bar since 1988 and recognized by the National Board of Trial Advocacy as Board Certified in Criminal Trial Advocacy since 1983.
