Protecting Your Child’s Future
The law office of Jeffrey E. Johnston, serves clients throughout the Evans, Georgia, and Columbia County areas who have children facing juvenile criminal charges. Even just facing charges for juvenile offenses can be traumatic for a child, but a conviction can be devastating. We make it our job to be your child’s champion in the juvenile justice system.
A Champion For Your Child
We can be a unique champion for your child in that our firm’s founding lawyer, Jeffrey E. Johnston, has handled both sides of cases involving juvenile crimes. First, he served for five years as an assistant district attorney, prosecuting many juvenile cases. For the last 10 years, he has been on the other side of the case as a criminal defense attorney, helping juveniles through the system and as a determined trial lawyer.
Your child is not just another number to us. Our firm will work closely with your child, learning your child’s story and then advocating for him or her to the court. Ultimately, we want your child to be positioned for success in the future. The juvenile system offers features that can help that happen. We can help your child access those features while also protecting their legal rights vigorously.
Parents throughout the area come to us because we draw on more than 15 years of experience in criminal defense matters, including juvenile matters. Further, they know our reputation for trial work. We regularly try cases in order to protect our clients’ rights. It is not different for us in juvenile court. You can depend on us to make use of all the options available in the legal system to protect your child and help them get on track.
Those years of experience also mean we have the experienced legal judgment your child needs. You will feel better knowing your child is represented by someone who knows what juvenile law says and how to handle those situations where the law may be unclear or newly enacted.
Let Our Firm Help You And Your Family
We will take a personalized approach to your case. That means Mr. Johnston will work directly with your child to understand their situation and to provide them with legal representation tailored to their unique circumstances. Your child won’t work with an assistant you never met.
