Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile Defense Attorney Lawrence, KS



Protecting the Rights and Interests of Juvenile Offenders

If your minor child has been accused of a crime, it is vitally important to secure an attorney experienced in juvenile criminal defense. In Kansas, criminal convictions do not disappear from a juvenile’s record once he or she reaches the age of 18. The mistake your underage child made during his or her youth could continue to haunt them forever.


At The Swain Law Office, we recognize the importance of keeping your child’s criminal record clean. A juvenile criminal conviction, which is treated the same as an adult conviction, could limit your child’s education opportunities, employment options and may cause future issues if your child becomes involved in criminal activity past the age of 18.

Sarah G. Swain, an experienced juvenile defense attorney, provides non-judgmental, zealous advocacy of underage clients facing the juvenile court system. She understands mistakes are a part of growing up. One poor choice as a juvenile should not have to impact the rest of someone’s life.

Seeking the Best Possible Outcome for Your Child’s Case

As a parent, you’ve done your best to teach your child right from wrong. Unfortunately, a momentary lapse in judgment or peer pressure can take over, leading to unlawful actions and criminal charges. Our firm is prepared to protect your child’s rights and interests in juvenile defense cases, involving:


  • Minor in possession (MIP)
  • Drug possession
  • Fake IDs
  • Shoplifting or theft
  • Vandalism
  • Assault



Our goal in juvenile defense cases is dismissal of charges. When this is not possible, we seek a reduction in the charges against your child or a form of alternative sentencing, such as community service.


Don’t risk your child’s future. Contact The Swain Law Office to discuss options for juvenile defense.
