Our Job Is To Protect Your Son Or Daughter’s Future
The juvenile justice system is designed to rehabilitate rather than to punish. Yet there are consequences for youths accused of crimes. Without proper legal representation, juveniles may be unjustly blamed or sentenced too harshly, teaching them all the wrong lessons, and ruining future educational or career opportunities.
Our juvenile crime defense team at Ryan Beasley Law in Greenville has years of experience supporting clients in the juvenile court system. We will make sure that your child is treated fairly and afforded the second chance and support services he or she deserves. If your son or daughter is charged with a serious crime, we will do everything possible to help them avoid incarceration or the shackles of a criminal record.
Proven Juvenile Defense In Greenville And Upstate
We practice in the juvenile courts of Greenville County, Pickens County, Anderson County, Spartanburg County and the surrounding jurisdictions of South Carolina. As a team of juvenile defense attorneys, we have represented youths accused of a wide range of offenses: shoplifting and theft, underage drinking and DUI, use of marijuana and other drugs, vandalism and burglary, assaults, sex offenses and more.
We will work to get your child released to you at the earliest possibility rather than kept in juvenile detention. In the case of a major felony, our team will fight attempts to have your child transferred to adult court.
Juvenile proceedings are different – no jury or public proceedings, no guilty verdicts. The judge listens to testimony and determines an “adjudication.” We have built relationships with the juvenile court prosecutors and judges in the Upstate area, which helps us advocate for the most favorable outcome. In many cases, we can intervene to get unfounded charges dismissed, sparing youths a stressful and embarrassing ordeal. If the charges do go forward, we have an effective courtroom team that will be there to assert your child’s rights and tell their side of the story.
