Tuscaloosa Juvenile Defense Lawyer

Juveniles can be charged with a wide range of crimes, just like adults. However, the charges that they face often have a greater impact on juveniles, since there is no longer a guarantee that the charges will be removed from a juvenile's record at some point in the future.

At my office, my juvenile defense clients and their parents deal directly with me, attorney Joel Sogol. With over thirty years of experience in the criminal justice system, I am highly knowledgeable of juvenile crimes, the types of punishments often imposed, and the repercussions that these punishments may have on a juvenile's life.

I pride myself on my knowledge of the juvenile courts. I know the ins and outs of the way juvenile defense matters are handled, and efficiently convey this information to my clients. Contact me today to learn more about how I may be able to help you.

Some of the types of crimes that juveniles are often facing include:

  • Drug possession
  • Assault
  • Theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Rape

Underage Drinking

I frequently handle underage drinking and other alcohol offense matters for juveniles that are in college, high school, or younger. These types of offenses have specific consequences and can impact a juvenile's ability to gain employment in the future. They can also impact the ability to obtain and keep a driver's license.

Juvenile Sex Offenses

Juveniles who are convicted of sex offenses are subject to community notification of those offenses. However, with the help of an experienced attorney, it is possible for us to explore the ways in which the notifications may be exempted.
