Keeping a good kid from entering the adult criminal justice system is one of the most important things a juvenile crimes defense attorney can do. At the Law Office of John R. Garey, I focus my juvenile crime defense efforts on helping your minor-age child accept responsibility for the act without suffering the harsh punishments that a criminal record can mean during the adult years.
I have a great deal of experience working with kids charged with drunk driving. Before I went into private practice in 2003, I worked as a prosecutor with the Kent County Office of the Department of Justice for more than 15 years. I offer clients the advantage of knowing both sides of the courtroom.
I worked side by side with many of the juvenile crimes judges and prosecutors, and their Kent County court support staff. I understand from experience how the juvenile justice system works.
As a juvenile crimes defense attorney, my aim is to help your minor get a fair shake and a fresh start. I may file a motion to have the charges dismissed or reduced, depending on the circumstances of the case.

The impact of a conviction
Clients, prosecutors, and juvenile court judges know that I will do everything possible to find the solution that is right for your teenager or college student in the following types of cases:
Gang activity, assault, fighting
Drug charges, possession intent to sell
Minor in possession of alcohol, underage drinking, DUI defense
If your teen is arrested for underage drinking in Delaware, charged and convicted, the impact will be sudden and dramatic. A conviction for underage drinking or possession means losing a driver’s license for a month or paying a $100 fine if your teen does not have a driver’s license. Using a false I.D. to buy liquor means up to $500 in fines. If the fine is not paid, your teen will serve up to 30 days in jail.
