Nothing is harder on a family than the arrest of a minor child. As the father of an adult son, and a Teen Court judge for over seven years, I bring the experience and judgment needed to properly represent your son or daughter.
What can happen to my son or daughter as the result of a juvenile arrest?
Jail or prison sentence
Incarceration while case is ongoing
Removal from the home
Loss of license
How can Attorney Michael T. Cavanaugh help?
Release from custody on home detention
Release from custody on home confinement
Outright release from custody
Dismissal through a Motion to Quash Arrest and Suppress Evidence
Negotiated settlements that keep your son or daughter out of jail and ensure them the help they may need: substance abuse counseling, anger management, etc.
Negotiated settlements that enable your child to erase (expunge) charges from their record at a later date
Aggressive trial strategies to fight the case against your son or daughter
Is time important?
Evidence Preservation Orders should be timely filed
My initial interview should be done within 1-2 days of the arrest. Memories fade and evidence disappears with time.
Same day appointments are always available with my office
Evenings and weekends (Saturday & Sunday) by appointment
