Safeguard Your Future With Personalized Counsel
In the early stages of adulthood, a criminal conviction can have devastating consequences. A conviction could make it harder to find a job, continue an education and secure housing in the coming years. Although your child may be young, it is crucial to find a lawyer who will take your defense case seriously.

Baker works alongside students and their families to overcome the legal barriers to a prospective future. Turn to him for sensitive guidance during this complicated time.
Fight Underage Criminal Accusations
The offenses and potential punishments in juvenile criminal defense cases are different from adult cases. Many factors impact whether a minor would face trial in adult or juvenile court, but the knowledgeable lawyer at Spector | Baker Attorneys and Counselors at Law can defend you throughout either process.
Common juvenile delinquent acts and serious criminal offenses that the firm addresses include:
- Drug possession and trafficking
- Underage DUI and traffic violations
- Theft, robbery, burglary and shoplifting
- Sexual assault and rape allegations
- Trespassing, arson and vandalism
With a conviction as a minor, avoiding jail or juvenile facility time is not a guarantee. Therefore, it is vital to pursue alternative options with professional legal help. Mr. Baker can advise your child regarding his or her rights – and fight to reduce or prevent significant penalties.
