Boston Attorneys Providing Criminal Defense for Juveniles and Students

Student Defense Lawyers

When children or young adults get in trouble with the law, it can be tempting to write off the incident as simply “kids being kids.” However, the criminal justice system does not share this attitude. A conviction of even the most minor-sounding crime will result in a criminal record that can follow your child for life. It can also negatively impact his or her ability to receive certain loans, find housing or employment, or could lead to his suspension or expulsion  from college. That is why it is important to protect your child’s future with strong legal representation.

Boston student crimes defense attorney David Yannetti and his associates have decades of combined legal experience. As a former prosecutor, Mr. Yannetti understands how to sensitively handle these cases, keeping in mind your goals in court and in school. He and his associates will put this experience to work for your child to help him or her mount an effective defense.
