Richmond Vandalism Property Damage Lawyer
Is Your Teen Facing Vandalism and Property Damage Charges?
At The Law Office of Larry McDougal, we know that facing criminal charges as a juvenile can be scary because the consequences affect future opportunities. The slate is not wiped clean at age 18, contrary to popular belief.
We aggressively protect the rights of our clients facing charges for juvenile vandalism and property damage.
These cases involve any number of circumstances, including:
- Defacing public property
- Mailbox baseball
- Destroying school property
- Damaging automobiles
- And more
We work closely with our clients. We make it our goal to protect them against consequences that could potentially involve losing student loans, scholarships and job opportunities, not to mention the potential for incarceration and being put at the mercy of the juvenile justice system.
