St. Petersburg Juvenile Drug Defense Attorney

Melinda Morris, managing partner of the Morris Law Firm is an experienced Juvenile lawyer who served in the juvenile division while working as an assistant state attorney with the Sixth Judicial Circuit in Clearwater, Pinellas County, Florida. Ms. Morris was responsible for prosecuting a range of very severe juvenile criminal offenses from investigation through trial. It is beneficial to act fast to get an attorney involved in your child’s case so that an opportunity can be seized early on to either get your child’s charges dropped, or get your child in a diversion program, which if successfully completed will result in the charges being dismissed.

Juvenile Drug Possession cases are unique and having an experienced St. Petersburg juvenile defense lawyer who understands the nuances of juvenile law can make a big difference in your child’s future. In most cases, Juvenile Drug Possession charges are charged as adult Drug Charges. If the juvenile is going to be tried as an adult the juvenile’s case could be heard in adult criminal court. All the same rules of the criminal court apply. While the juvenile system is specifically interested in rehabilitation, that is not the case with the adult criminal system. The Morris Law Firm Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney mission is to prevent juveniles from being tried as adults.
