Arlington County Juvenile Defense Attorney | Elizabeth Tuomey

Tuomey law Home Image

As an Arlington County juvenile defense attorney, Elizabeth Tuomey realizes that minors (those age 17 and under) often make mistakes that can change their lives forever. No parent wants his or her child to face jail time, juvenile detention, probation, a criminal record, or other harsh punishment. Whether your child has been accused of school delinquency, shoplifting or other theft, DUI, a sex crime, drug possession, vandalism, or any criminal offense, it is critical to his or her future to consult with an experienced juvenile defense lawyer who is committed to securing the best possible outcome.


In the state of Virginia, criminal acts allegedly committed by juveniles are generally prosecuted in juvenile and domestic relations district courts. However, depending on the seriousness of the offense and other factors, a juvenile may be tried as an adult, which means he/she could face the same harsh punishment an adult in the same situation would face. As a seasoned juvenile defense lawyer, Elizabeth Tuomey believes that every teen deserves a second chance, and should not have his or her future potentially ruined because of an error in judgment. Young people are frequently influenced by their peers, and do not realize the serious consequences of their actions. The focus should be on rehabilitation rather than severe punishment.


Why Work With a Juvenile Defense Lawyer?


Prosecutors are not always compassionate, even when it comes to minors. Sometimes they fight for the harshest punishment possible, unfortunately. As a parent, you may have many questions regarding the future of your child. Will he/she spend time in jail or juvenile detention, or be able to continue living with you? How might a permanent criminal record impact your child's future? What are the legal options, and how does the juvenile justice system differ from the adult criminal justice system? Ultimately, you must have a defense lawyer who will answer all of your questions and prepare to defend your child in the same thoughtful, diligent manner he or she would if defending an adult. Reaching the best possible outcome is always the focus.

Just as in criminal cases involving adults, juveniles are sometimes accused of crimes they did not commit. Reaching the desired result requires thorough investigation, examination of the evidence, speaking with witnesses, developing a solid defense, and understanding which alternative sentencing options may be best in a given situation. When your child is in trouble with the law, trust juvenile defense lawyer Elizabeth Tuomey for outstanding legal guidance and representation. Call (703) 535-5577 now for a free consultation.
