Youngstown Juvenile Defense Attorneys

Defending Your Childs Rights in Trumbull County

Young people make mistakes, and it is extremely important to make sure that these mistakes do not ruin their futures. In addition to attempting to reduce and dismiss charges, we will fight aggressively to keep your child out of detention. We will do everything possible to ensure the case is kept in juvenile court and that your child is not thrown unfairly into adult court.

At Hartwig Law LLC, we will strongly defend your child’s rights and ensure that he or she gets the best possible defense and outcome.

In many juvenile cases, we have a strong chance of getting your child rehabilitation instead of placement in a local or state detention facility.
