Virginia Beach Juvenile Defense Attorney
Legal Help for Minors Charged with a Crime
At the Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller, our Virginia Beach juvenile defense lawyer provides juvenile defense counsel to clients throughout Virginia Beach and all of Hampton Roads. We know that young people can do some foolish things, but we believe these mistakes should not impact the rest of their lives. .
Juveniles caught shoplifting, possessing drugs or alcohol or committing a more serious offense aren't necessarily bad kids. Often, it means they got caught in the wrong place, at the wrong time and with the wrong crowd. We don't believe they should face a lifetime of punishment.

How We Can Help
The Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller, provides effective, experienced legal defense for kids caught up in the juvenile system. Our Virginia Beach juvenile crime lawyer fights hard to ensure the case remains where it should - in the juvenile courts, rather than having a child tried as an adult. We do everything we can to work with the judges and prosecutors to find alternatives to jail and the worst penalties of a conviction or adjudication of delinquency. Often, we are able to find alternative penalties instead.
