As the parent of a teen who is facing misdemeanor or traffic charges for the first time, it’s important for you to know that Teen Court offers a way to possibly get those charges dismissed. It can enable your child to keep a clean slate, avoiding any loss of reputation that harms his or her future prospects.

Would Teen Court Work for Your Child?
The Teen Court program does not apply to all offenses committed by teenagers. But if the offense was a misdemeanor or traffic offense, Teen Court allows participants to have their charges dismissed if they complete the requirements of the program. Typically these requirements emphasize reform and rehabilitation, not punishment.
Specifically, offenses that Teen Court applies to include:
- Petit theft
- Criminal mischief
- Careless driving
Founding attorney Corey Cohen has many years of experience handling cases involving juveniles. As a highly trusted and knowledgeable defense attorney, he has trained all defense attorneys at our firm.
