Successful Defense Against Juvenile Crimes
Attorney Charles C. Cosby, Jr. handles juvenile cases that involve:
- Drug Offenses
- Alcohol related crimes
- Grand larceny
- Property crimes; such as shoplifting, destruction of property

Juvenile cases are held in different courts than adult ones unless the juvenile is transferred to adult court, so you need an attorney with in-depth knowledge of the nuances between the two systems. The treatment of a juvenile can vary in many different ways from an adult, or in some instances it may be the same. Attorney Cosby has that knowledge — he has handled cases in over 60 jurisdictions throughout Virginia and has been a juvenile court prosecutor. He has defended a juvenile as young as thirteen for murder, and has frequently represented juveniles for other very serious offenses. Our legal staff helps Mr. Cosby to work with both you and your child to craft a strong defense strategy, one that keeps your child’s best interests at heart while seeking reductions in or dismissals of charges and/or an acquittal at trial.
