Juvenile Crimes
Juvenile delinquency can cause immediate and irreparable harm to your child's future. In certain instances, a juvenile record can interfere with your child's admission to the college of his or her choice and the ability to secure a good job.

Drug Charges
Drug charges must be taken seriously. Any conviction could result in serious consequences, including jail time and loss of license. James M. Porfido has worked both as a prosecutor in drug court and now as a drug crimes defense attorney.

Drunk Driving Defense
Drunk driving charges can result in the loss of your license and serious penalties, including jail time. When you have been arrested for drunk driving, you should consult with an attorney to protect your rights and minimize the consequences.

Juvenile Criminal Mischief
When children are charged with criminal mischief, too many parents dismiss it as "kids being kids." What they fail to realize is that a conviction of vandalism and other forms of criminal mischief can have serious repercussions.

White Collar Crimes
Even before you are charged with a crime, investigators will be building a case against you. If you believe that you are under investigation for a white collar crime, contact an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights.
