Juvenile Justice

If your child has been arrested for shoplifting, truancy, vandalizing property, possessing marijuana or anything else, we can help. Juvenile court focuses more on rehabilitating compared to the adult criminal court which primarily focuses on punishment. Yet, depending on the juvenile’s prior criminal record and the severity of the crime charged, there are instances where the juvenile will be removed from their parent’s/guardian’s home and placed in a group home or a juvenile detention center. Attorney Drorbaugh was a Juvenile Prosecutor as well as a court appointed Juvenile Defense Attorney prior to joining Village Law Group.  Attorney Drorbaugh can craft an effective defense that will show the court that this one unfortunate act should not define the life of your child.

Of course, it isn’t just kids who make mistakes when stressed out or having poor judgement.

If you have been charged with a DWI, get arrested for possessing a controlled substance (illicit/illegal drugs), or any number of things, we can help. It is important to act quickly and with an aggressive defense strategy so you can not only protect your freedom, but also minimize any impact this will have on your future.

Traffic Offenses

If you have been cited with a moving/traffic violation you need to take it seriously. Jail time may not be a possible punishment but a traffic violation can still carry serious ramifications such as suspension of your driver’s license or your automobile insurance premiums skyrocketing. We can aid you in understanding the consequences of being found responsible for the traffic offense you have been cited for. Attorney Drorbaugh may be able to mitigate those consequences by having the traffic matter dismissed or pled down to a traffic offense that does not negatively impact your driver’s license and/or automobile insurance.
