Experienced Maryland Juvenile Law Attorneys
All teenagers make mistakes. Some are inconsequential, but others are illegal. At the Palumbo Law Group, we believe a juvenile's lack of judgment should not impact the rest of their life. We represent young people, under the age of 18, in both minor and serious juvenile law cases.
Retried District Court Judge Richard Palumbo established our Prince George's County, Maryland, law firm more than 35 years ago. Today, we continue his legacy by providing a caring commitment to our clients. Contact us to discuss a juvenile law matter with an experienced lawyer. We offer a free initial consultation.
Protect Your Child's Future
Juvenile law refers to any type of criminal charge an adult can face, but instead involves a minor. Juvenile law cases are handled in juvenile court, where the focus is more on rehabilitation than on punishment. Typically, the court will require the juvenile to perform community service, attend treatment, or be committed to a juvenile facility.
Even though a juvenile record does not carry over to an adult criminal record, it is still important to hire a juvenile defense lawyer. A juvenile record could severely limit certain aspects of your child's future. Extracurricular opportunities may be affected. College prospects could be narrowed.

As a parent, facing your child's possible delinquency is not easy. You've done the best you know how to do in raising your child, yet he or she made a poor choice.
