Wilmington Juvenile Offense Lawyer

Juveniles can commit, and be charged with, the same types of crimes as adults in the state of Delaware. A juvenile conviction not only comes with significant penalties for that child, it can also have a lasting impact on his or her future, criminal record, driving privileges, eligibility for federal college funding, and whether the child is able to return to school. If your child has been arrested for a juvenile crime, you need an experienced Wilmington juvenile offense lawyer to help you protect your child’s rights and future.

At my firm of Michael W. Modica, I defend juveniles who are faced with serious criminal charges in Delaware Family Court. In every case, my goal is to protect client rights and minimize the potential harm that a conviction can have on my client’s life.

Juvenile offenses can include all types of crimes, including:

  • DUI and underage possession or drinking
  • School Offenses
  • Internet crimes
  • Drug charges, including the possession of marijuana
  • Assault and other violent crimes
  • Weapons offenses
  • Criminal mischief
  • Property crimes, including shoplifting

When I defend juveniles in Family Court, I explore all options to avoid an adjudication of delinquency, including various diversion programs and first offender programs. I understand the anxiety that children, and their parents, have when facing criminal or traffic charges and I am careful to make sure that the process is as stress free as possible as I guide you through the process.
