Juvenile Defense Lawyer

 

As an experienced Juvenile Defense Lawyer, we understand that protecting your child’s future is just as important as providing an aggressive defense against the alleged crime.  While juveniles commit the same kind of offenses as adults, people under the age of 18 are subject to a separate set of rules and a separate court system.  Attorney Lichtenstein offers an in-depth knowledge of the juvenile court system and has trial experience defending juveniles charged with a range of crimes throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.  With over twenty-five years of experience, we are qualified to handle all aspects of juvenile law and to provide legal counsel to children as well as their parents.  We understand that facing juvenile adjudication can adversely affect your child’s future.  It can affect their right to drive, entrance into college, and college scholarship awards.
Robert L. Lichtenstein recognize that issues may arise that involve criminal conduct, school suspensions, expulsions and juvenile delinquency.
We handle all types of juvenile offenses, including:
          Trespassing
           Vandalism, graffiti
           Underage drinking and driving
           Minor in possession
           Drug possession and other drug crimes
           Theft, shoplifting, robbery
           Underage consumption or possession of alcohol
           Reckless driving
           Assault
           Sex crimes
           Drug crimes
           Gang activity

5 Tips to Stay Out of Legal Trouble in College

Pay Parking Tickets on Time

Parking can be tough for commuting students on many college campuses. A lack of available spots in lots can often cause students to simply take the first spot that is available. Campuses strictly enforce parking rules and regulations in order to make a fair system for everyone. It is important to purchase a parking permit that allows one to park in a designated lot. When parking tickets do wind up on the windshield, students should take care to pay them up as soon as possible. Unpaid tickets can result in a car being booted, which is costly for students. Paying citations and parking in permitted areas is the smartest way to avoid trouble with campus parking enforcement.

Honor Rental Agreements

Many students choose to live in off-campus housing for all or part of their college careers. Renting an apartment or house with other students is a good way to save money and learn to live independently. Paying rent on time each month, maintaining the quality and condition of the home, and respecting the landlord’s requests are all a part of honoring a rental agreement. Students who violate the terms of their rental agreement must realize that the landlord can take them to court for damages.

Practice Good Judgment

There are many influences that can come into play in the life of a college student. It may be the first time that a young person is being exposed to individuals from many different walks of life. Students should practice good judgement when choosing friends and people to hang around with outside of the classroom. Choosing friends that share similar interests, values, and beliefs is the best idea. Getting in with the wrong crowd can lead to behavioral changes and have a negative impact on academic performance. Students should always use their best judgment when it comes to social situations and new friends.

Avoid Partying, Drugs, and Alcohol

The college years are almost synonymous with partying and having a good time, but students need to strike the right balance between social activities and studies. There are often many parties going on both on campus and off, and most of those parties involve alcohol. Drugs can also be present in social situations, and smart students who want to avoid legal troubles should make wise choices. It is not just a matter of not getting caught drinking underage, but of making the decision to not participate in illegal activities.

Never Drink and Drive

Students of legal drinking age still need to practice good judgment. When going out to bars, restaurants, or parties with friends, it is important to choose a designated driver. Drinking and driving is not only illegal, but also incredibly dangerous. Unfortunately, many young people have found themselves facing legal consequences for drinking and getting behind the wheel of a car. A charge for drinking and driving can have a negative impact on one’s future and affect their ability to succeed in a career field.
College students have the opportunity to learn and grow in many ways. Avoiding legal trouble is critical to maintaining a good record. Making good decisions throughout college will have a positive influence on a person’s career and personal relationships in the future.

I had enough to worry about before my military deployment and thank you so much for getting my ticket taken care of without my appearance. I was worried that I was going to have to drive up from NC, but you took care of it without my appearance and helped alleviate some of my worries. If I need anyone in the future, I know where to go.

Awesome customer service... I live out of state and this office treated me like family. They were up front , honest and helped me understand the situation with my tickets and spoke on my behalf when contacting the courthouse. I was trying to deal with things last minute and could've been taken advantage of due to not understanding VA law or court process yet I was given honest council and advice .

Couldn’t Be Happier

Living in New Hampshire I was nervous about finding an attorney in Virginia. I attempted to contact several attorneys before talking to Chris in this office. He took time with me and reminded me of my grandson. After speaking with this office, my nervousness and fears were diminished and Robert got my traffic matter handled without my appearance. I am very appreciative. When you call ask for Chris, he was great with me. Blessings to your firm from New Hampshire.

Vindication

I was ticketed for an accident that I didn't even cause. My insurance company paid for the other vehicle, but I was given a ticket to appear in court. I had never been in trouble before, and I was extremely nervous.  Robert appeared in court with me and I was finally able to get vindication, as the accident was not my fault. Thank you so much.
