Have you or a loved one been arrested and need help?

With all Juvenile Offense charges, representation by a criminal defense attorney is your constitutional right regardless of the crime you're accused of.

Hiring a criminal defense attorney provides you a voice. A criminal defense lawyer speaks for you as a filter, a buffer between you and the police and the prosecutor. They ensure your side of the story isn't lost in the criminal justice system.

If arrested, follow these guidelines. Stay Calm. Remember, DON'T TALK TO THE POLICE. They are not your friends.

When the stakes are high and you're facing criminal charges, you need Carson City Criminal Defense Lawyers with 50 years experience, who are available to take your case quickly and confidently, who will go the extra mile to get the best possible result in or out of court.

Juvenile Offences

Criminal behavior can begin at a very early age, but because a person is not considered mentally and physically developed until age 18, there are separate criminal justice systems for juvenile offenders.

At Laub and Laub, our juvenile defense attorneys have experience in successfully defending minors charged with crimes. Our juvenile lawyers are familiar with the judges and procedures in each juvenile and adult criminal court.

We have helped many young people who have been charged with various juvenile crimes.

Categories of Juvenile Crimes

There are three types juvenile cases that a minor may be involved in. These include:

  • Status offenses, acts that would be otherwise legal if committed by an adult. These can be minor offenses like truancy from school or violation of curfew, or can be more serious offenses that are specifically illegal by virtue of the person's status as a minor.
  • Delinquency offenses, any act that would be a crime regardless of the age of the person who committed it. For example, if a juvenile commits an act of vandalism
  • Juvenile being tried as an adult, a juvenile over the age of 16 to be tried as an adult for any crime under the court's discretion. Between the ages of 14-16, the juvenile can only be tried as an adult for serious violent or sex-related crimes
  • What To Do If You Have Been Arrested and Charged with a Crime
    STAY CALM--go with law enforcement with no discussion, no irrational behavior

    REMAIN SILENT - anything you say will be used against you

    DO NOT GRANT PERMISSION - for law enforcement to search your home or car

    Law enforcement has a lot of power when it comes to charging you with a misdemeanor or a felony. If detained, law enforcement will ask you questions. They will watch how you behave. They have a job to do. Law enforcement is not on your side, and they are not your friends.

    Retaining an Attorney: I'm Trusting You with My Life

    Fear must be addressed immediately when a client comes in regarding a criminal case. Facing the law is scary. An event occurred, creating a big problem in the life of the client. Help is now needed from an experienced criminal defense attorney to resolve the problem.

    At Laub & Laub, our attorneys will explain, "You're here, and you need to tell me everything you know about this matter. Whatever you say will stay within the four walls of this office, but you have to tell me everything, and you have to tell me the truth, and you have to tell me the stuff that you don't want to tell anyone else."

    Telling a false story or thinking that telling the best story is what the criminal defense attorney needs to hear is the worst idea. Sometimes a client thinks that telling a made-up story to the lawyer is how to handle the problem. The client may not want the attorney to have to worry about the bad stuff. For a criminal defense attorney to provide the strongest defense for a client, the defense lawyer must know the case better than the prosecution does. Be prepared to share everything with your defense lawyer.

    Remember, a criminal defense lawyer with years of experience has a way of finding out the truth about what happened. It is their job. An attorney has a lot of training through schooling and numerous years of experience trying cases in court. They are skilled litigators. It's what they do: find out the details because the facts drive the case. It is in the best of interest of the client to be brutally honest with the attorney.

    When you hire a private attorney because you need a criminal defense lawyer, you are paying for a best friend, someone to trust. That trust is the reason why the attorney / client privilege is the most important privilege that exists. Attorney / client privilege is sacred.
