Juvenile arrests make up a large portion of the criminal caseload within the state of Louisiana. Youth are one of the state’s most vulnerable populations. It has been proven that youth who enter the juvenile justice system are more likely to drop out of school, remain in poverty, and continue well into the criminal justice system into adulthood. The further into the system children go by continue to commit crimes, the less likely they become to ever get out and live a productive life. Therefore, it stands to reason that hiring the right attorney for the first offense matters greatly.
Brett K. Duncan is that right attorney, for many reasons. First, he fully understands that a juvenile arrest affects the entire family. It can be a very stressful time for both the child and the parents. For this reason, he makes sure to stay in constant contact with all involved, keeping everyone as updated as possible. Second, he fights aggressively for your child. While some attorneys may say yes to the first plea deal a prosecutor offers, attorney Duncan does not. He uses every tool available to hold the prosecution accountable and force them to prove their case against your child. He does not make it easy for charges to hold.
The most important person for any parent to have on their side when their child is facing legal trouble is an attorney who cares. At Brett K. Duncan & Co, your child’s future is our number one concern. We want to, and will, do everything possible to secure whatever help is needed to get them back on the right track. It is our firm belief that if the first offense is handled and dealt with properly, it will also be the last offense.
