Attorneys Passionately Advocating For Young People Charged With Crimes

When a child or teenager under the age of 18 commits any crime, from a serious felony like murder to a misdemeanor for being out past curfew, special court procedures and consequences often apply. At Dusek Law, an East Grand Forks criminal defense firm, we are passionate about helping juveniles throughout North Dakota and Minnesota mitigate negative consequences and protect their futures in these complex criminal proceedings.

What Was Your Child Charged With?

A juvenile can commit almost any crime that an adult could. However, juvenile delinquency cases often involve the following charges:

  • Underage drinking (being caught consuming alcohol under the age of 21)
  • Drug possession (caught in possession of street drugs or controlled substances without a prescription)
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) (Driving with any detectable alcohol in the body if you are under 21 years old)
  • Disorderly conduct (A wide range of public behaviors that are considered to disturb or disrupt public peace)
  • Vandalism (destroying or defacing property that doesn’t belong to you)
  • Shoplifting and other theft offenses

No matter what charges your child may be facing, our attorneys are ready to provide aggressive criminal defense representation.

Children In Need Of Protection Or Services

When children under the age of 10 commit a crime, they are typically referred to the child welfare program as children in need of protection or services (CHIPS). In some CHIPS cases, parents are found to be unable to effectively protect and care for their children. These cases could result in the termination of parental rights, which is one of the many reasons you need to seek the help of an experienced defense attorney like those at our firm.

At Dusek Law, we are dedicated to ensuring that minors and their parents have the strong, aggressive defense they need to protect their rights and their best interests. With more than two decades of experience, we understand juvenile law and have the skill to help our clients secure outcomes that will help them avoid lifelong consequences for youthful mistakes.
