A tough attorney helping kids in the juvenile and criminal justice systems Children’s criminal cases are handled differently than those of adults.

Juvenile offenders therefore warrant a unique approach focused on rehabilitation. With compassion for the children accused of crimes, Lori G. Levin zealously represents them in the juvenile justice system. She can defend your child against criminal prosecution in all cases, including: _
Assault and Battery
Retail Theft or Shoplifting
