Stamford Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney

An Opportunity for a Second Chance

Children and adolescents, just like adults, make mistakes. Children and adolescents are at a unique and critical stage in their lives. As they are maturing and their brain is still developing, they sometimes engage in impulsive and risk-taking behavior. Often, children experiment with drugs and/or alcohol and succumb to peer pressure.

The good news for parents who have a son or daughter facing juvenile charges is the law is on your side. Connecticut's Juvenile Criminal Justice system is focused on rehabilitation, giving a juvenile offender a second chance. When you hire the juvenile defense law firm of Koffsky & Felsen, LLC, you will be working with a Stamford Juvenile criminal defense lawyer who is familiar with the juvenile system, and all of the options available to help your child and protect his or her future.

We are have a great deal of experience handling Suspensions, School Expulsion Hearings, and issues involving College admissions. We understand how important it is to protect your child's record and know how to ensure that a mistake doesn't keep a child from having opportunities in the future.

A Different Approach to Juvenile Offenses

One of our attorneys, Audrey Felsen, taught Juvenile Justice for several years as an adjunct professor at Sacred Heart University. We know the juvenile justice system and that the law takes a different approach to juvenile cases, attempting to balance personal accountability with protection of the child's future. Few people involved in the juvenile justice system take the position that the accused should forever be marred by a criminal conviction.

We also have long-established connections to essential resources for your child, like drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs and counseling services. We are committed to working with your child to address whatever underlying issues need to be addressed to achieve a successful disposition in court and to ensure that he or she does not repeat past mistakes.
