Juvenile cases are unlike other types of criminal proceedings; it is wise to speak to an attorney who has experience in this area. Our Michigan juvenile crimes lawyers understand the juvenile criminal defense system and can help you and/or your child pursue the various defense and sentencing avenues available.

Types of Juvenile Criminal Issues We Handle
When minors (or, individuals under the age of 17) are accused of a crime in Michigan, they are treated somewhat differently than adults who are charged with criminal offenses. This does not mean that a juvenile is absolved of consequences or that he/she will not face serious penalties. In fact, when juvenile crimes are particularly grave, the accused minor could face the same penalties as an adult charged with the same crime.
At Grewal Law PLLC, we can assist you with a wide range of juvenile criminal defense matters, including but not limited to:
- Transferring the case to the juvenile consent calendar
- Understanding juvenile court penalties as they relate to your child’s charges
- Defending against juvenile drug offenses, including drug possession
- Defending against other juvenile charges, including shoplifting, assault, and sex crimes
- Protecting your child’s future through the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act
Whether your child has been wrongfully accused or is facing life-altering consequences for a single mistake, our firm can help you understand your options and work to protect your child’s future.
Our Approach to Juvenile Criminal Charges
At Grewal Law PLLC, we understand how being charged with a crime can negatively affect your child’s future. A conviction could dramatically alter his or her life forever. Because of this, our juvenile crimes attorneys in Michigan work tirelessly to create a solid defense strategy based on listening to your child’s side of the story and thorough investigations.
Every case is different and our attorneys work to build personalized defenses for each and every client. Depending on the particular type of charge your child is facing—be it a gang-related offense, drug crime, theft charge, or criminal sexual conduct—we may work to have his/her case transferred to the juvenile consent calendar. This option allows your child to have his/her record cleared provided that he/she follows the program’s guidelines and completes treatment. If this option is not available to your child, we will look for alternative defense strategies aimed at protecting your child’s rights. Our attorneys are prepared to serve as the dedicated legal guide and fierce advocate your child and your family deserve.
