When a child is charged with a crime, it affects the entire family. This is especially true in cases where a minor has been charged with a serious criminal offense, such as a sex crime, assault, or even murder. Whether your child has committed a crime, been wrongfully accused of a criminal act, or simply made a mistake, the guidance of a juvenile defense lawyer can help you get through this difficult time. Juvenile crimes law varies from state to state, but a lawyer can help you understand your child’s legal options.
Helping Young Offenders
Bartos & Bartos, LPA assists juvenile clients and their families by negotiating with the prosecution to reduce the charges, if possible. Bartos & Bartos, LPA also aims to work with prosecutors to ensure that children are charged as minors, not adults. In some cases, by taking this step, children face fewer penalties and are therefore able to move forward with their lives more quickly.
Not all attorneys are equipped to work with juvenile defendants. It takes a combination of compassion and knowledge of the law to see your child through the juvenile court system and work to achieve the best possible outcome.
Don't Lose Hope
Remember: A criminal charge against your child doesn’t have to negatively affect the rest of his or her life. If your child is in trouble, call Bartos & Bartos, LPA today.

The Bartos team took the time to explain what was going to happen and how that would be handled from a legal standpoint. They were personable and helpful in a matter we had no idea of direction in.
I would highly recommend Bartos & Bartos for any youth legal matters that may arise.

I went to David for a bankruptcy. It was very embarrassing and emotionally difficult time for me. He was very understanding not judgmental at all, made me very comfortable. I also decided to use him again when I was going through a divorce again couldn’t ask for anything better. Very professional, supportive, and understanding. I highly recommend him. He will be my attorney for life!!

I have hired David Bartos on two separate occasions. I have been very satisfied with both occassions. The first experience I had with David was when I hired him to reduce my child support because I knew I was overpaying due to circumstances had changed. For example, my child was no longer in day care and I was now covering medical expenses. David was able to significantly reduce my child support payments.
The second time I hired David was because my child wanted to mostly live with me and go to school in the district where I live, so I needed to become residential parent. David was able to make this happen and look out for all parties involved. I highly recommend David for his fast response time and professionalism.

I’ve been a client of David’s since I was a late teen and he has done nothing but provide me with excellent service and has helped me with all legal troubles without flaw. He shows up on time and always has a game plan ready to go well before entering the court room. His knowledge and connections helped tremendously with all my cases and I am in such a dramatically better situation now than I was when I first contacted him. I would recommend him to everyone because he has done such an amazing job.

I've been working with David Bartos for a few years now, and I can't recommend him highly enough. David was very easy to work with and made everything as stress free as could be. Extremely knowledgable and professional.

I worked for opposing counsel on a legal matter in which Daniel Bartos was the Guardian ad Litem. I was incredibly impressed at Dan's attention to detail and it was immediately apparent that he was prepared and cared about the children he represented. Since that case, I have got the pleasure of knowing both Daniel and David better. Both gentlemen are professional and have an outstanding work ethic. Any client choosing to retain Daniel or David can be assured that they are in good hands.

Dave is an excellent attorney. Very professional and thorough with his work. He is very knowledgeable with child custody, child adoptions and bankruptcy law. He went above and beyond to assist me with my legal matters. He returns phone calls & emails promptly and kept me informed of the entire process of my cases he handled for my husband and me and his fees are very reasonable. He puts his heart into his work!
