How Virginia Juvenile Justice Works

Juvenile criminal justice is similar to criminal justice for adults in our state. However, the terms are different. Your son or daughter will have an adjudication hearing instead of a trial, and their case may be determined to be "delinquent" (guilty) or "not delinquent." Most importantly, however, your child still has the right to a lawyer. Mr. Galanides has been that lawyer for many young adults and their parents throughout Virginia, guiding families to a favorable judgment, and often to a complete dismissal of the charges.

As a former prosecutor and public defender, Mr. Galanides spent a significant portion of his lengthy career handling cases in juvenile court. He has helped families get criminal records sealed or expunged, helped them walk away from serious charges, and helped families overturn convictions on appeal.
