Young people often commit immature acts and do not always understand the consequences they may face. They are especially vulnerable when their parents are going through divorce or when there is family distress. Sometimes committing an act such as shoplifting or underage drinking is a cry for help.
One of the founding partners of Van Hooser, Aguirre & Armistead, P.C., David D. Armistead, is an experienced juvenile crimes attorney who takes a hands-on approach to every case he represents. He understands why young people get into trouble and will explore every avenue to minimize the consequences of an arrest. In many cases, he can help put juveniles in touch with the kinds of help and resources they may need to overcome the emotional obstacles that life has thrown their way.
Lawyer Providing A Broad Range Of Juvenile Crime Representation
Dave Armistead’s aim in juvenile criminal defense representation is to reduce or eliminate penalties, and do what is necessary to place the young person back on the road toward positive growth. He sincerely wants to do what is best for his young clients.
The types of juvenile crimes our law firm handles include:
Possession or distribution of marijuana
- A wide range of narcotic offenses, including drug possession and distribution
- Underage drinking
- Traffic offenses
- Misdemeanor and felony arrests
- Disorderly conduct
- Curfew violations
- Weapons crimes
- Other crimes
In the Commonwealth of Virginia’s juvenile system, these matters are handled very differently than crimes involving adults. These are all individual situations and, for the sake of the young person, require individual treatment.
As a lawyer regularly representing Prince William County clients in juvenile crime, Dave Armistead understands how Virginia’s criminal courts, juvenile courts and family law courts operate. In instances where a juvenile arrest becomes a focal point in a family law proceeding, he can handle both matters as he understands how criminal and family law aspects are related.
