What can I do if my son caused fire damage to a property? 2 Answers as of August 08, 2011

There is an abandoned building about 1/2 mile from our house. My 15 yr old son & some friends found some lacquer thinner in the bldg. & they built a fire. It got out of hand & caused an estimated $400 worth of damage. My son has never been in legal trouble before. They asked if we wanted a court appt attorney, and we answered yes. Was this the right thing to do? Help, please. I have never been in this situation before.
