Dedicated Legal Advocacy For Young People Accused Of Crimes
In North Carolina and across the United States, society has become considerably less tolerant of certain behaviors by children and teenagers. Illegal acts that were once dismissed as “youthful mischief” or “experimentation” are now treated harshly by the criminal justice system. Depending on the offense and the age of your child when they were prosecuted, a criminal conviction can follow them for years or a lifetime. A conviction can make it more difficult to get into college, access federal student loans and find a good job.
If your son or daughter is facing criminal charges, it’s important to work with an attorney who understands the nuances of the juvenile justice system and has considerable knowledge about the numerous alternatives to traditional prosecution and sentencing. For these and other reasons, the natural choice for representation in Winston-Salem is the law firm of Julie Boyer, Attorney At Law. Julie Boyer has over 17 years of legal experience, and she is a board-certified specialist in juvenile delinquency-criminal law.
What Was Your Child Accused Of?
Ms. Boyer regularly helps young people facing charges related to:
- Shoplifting and theft
- Vandalism and other property crimes
- Criminal offenses that occur at school
- Drug violations
- Sex crimes
- Weapons offenses
Attorney Boyer has an in-depth knowledge of the juvenile justice system and knows that it has both significant assets and liabilities. On the positive side, there are numerous diversion programs available for young defendants who qualify and would benefit from alternatives to traditional prosecution.
On the negative side, minors as young as 13 who are accused of serious crimes can be transferred to the adult system, where they face much harsher punishment and much less protection. Attorney Boyer frequently fights for these young defendants to prevent the transfer of their cases to Superior Court.

If your child is still a minor, you will play an active role in helping them resolve the charges they face and be very emotionally invested in protecting them and preserving their well-being. When you work with attorney Boyer, you’ll have an experienced guide through the complexities and frustrations of the juvenile justice system.
