Peachtree City Juvenile Crime Defense Lawyer

An Attorney Comfortable Helping Your Child in Georgia Juvenile Court

Teenagers make mistakes. Sometimes that mistake starts with associating with the wrong people. Other times it's simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Peer pressure often causes young people to do the wrong thing. And it's so easy for adults, including police, to jump to bad conclusions of minors even in the absence of real evidence.

If you are the parent of a minor child charged with crimes or delinquency, I encourage you to contact my firm immediately. With more then 15 years of juvenile defense experience, I know the juvenile justice system in Georgia, the judges, police, prosecutors, and the resources available to assist young people. I represent teens facing criminal charges throughout Georgia, including Peachtree City, Fayetteville, Newnan, Carrollton & Jonesboro.

Put my experience to work for you if your child is facing charges including, but not limited to:

  • Drugs in school, either possession or sale
  • Underage drinking / Minor in Possession
  • Property damage and vandalism
  • Weapons at school
  • Burglary, theft, shoplifting
  • Assault, battery, fighting

Protecting Your Child's Future

At the Law Office of Glen P. Burn my job is to protect your child from false or exaggerated charges and unfair treatment by police and prosecutors. As the attorney for your child, I look at all the facts so that a complete picture can be presented to the court. At worst, I will work to make sure that any sentence your child receives does the most good and the least damage. And where the charges are without merit I work hard to get them dismissed.

I am familiar with the options available to help your teen to a fresh start. Often it is possible to persuade a juvenile prosecutor to agree to an abeyance of the charges against a child. This offers the opportunity to avoid a juvenile conviction. Even in the worst circumstances, I will negotiate the least damaging sentence, such as public service, drug treatment, traffic school and probation.
