Rhode Island Juvenile Defense Lawyers

Strong Legal Defense for Your Child in Kent County

Facing criminal charges is always a scary, difficult situation. But when the charges are brought against one of your children, it can be terrifying. If you have a child who has been accused of a crime, how can you protect your child and give them the best possible chance of escaping serious criminal penalties?

Mount a strong defense. Work with a team of lawyers you can trust to fight these charges aggressively and effectively. At Assalone & Associates, LLC, we bring a combination of experience, teamwork, compassion and aggressiveness that is unique in the legal community of Rhode Island. Whatever criminal charges your child is facing, our lawyers will work together to find the best solution to minimize the damage or get the case thrown out.

We are a premier Rhode Island law firm with a track record of successful juvenile defense cases.

Types of Cases We Handle

Juvenile crime cases generally include the same types of crimes that would be brought against an adult, with some additional crimes that are based on the child’s age.

Our team of attorneys handles all types of juvenile crime cases, including:

  • Truancy
  • Underage drinking
  • Murder, assault and other violent crimes
  • Theft crimes
  • Internet crimes
  • Sex crimes

Do Not Let One Mistake Ruin Your Child’s Future

A single conviction for a serious crime could be a black mark on your child’s future. The stakes are too high to risk with an inexperienced lawyer. Work with our legal team. We have the experience, knowledge and aggressive approach needed to defend your child successfully.


Although truancy is not generally considered a serious crime, there is a high likelihood that instances of juvenile truancy will increase in the aftermath of COVID-19 quarantine, and it is likely that the authorities will take an aggressive approach to crack down on instances of truancy.

Our lawyers will take an equally aggressive approach to defend your child against these charges.
