Madera, Fresno, Merced, Mariposa Juvenile Law Attorney
When Your Child Is Involved, the Stakes Are Raised
Juvenile court operates differently than adult criminal court, so it’s critical to secure the services of a lawyer who is familiar with the juvenile system, its judges and the law as it applies to juveniles.
The emphasis in juvenile court is theoretically on rehabilitation rather than punishment. Cases are tried before a judge, not a jury. These factors provide opportunities to negotiate agreements, which is why it’s important to have an experienced juvenile crimes attorney fighting for you.
As a Juvenile Law Attorney, I am familiar with the law and special legal procedures followed by Courts in Juvenile cases. When a juvenile is accused of committing a crime, it impacts the entire family. That’s why I make certain to keep both the accused and the parents informed about developments, options and likely outcomes of a case throughout the process.
Ahwahnee, Oahurst, Coarsegold, Bass Lake, North Fork, Mariposa, Fresno, Merced and Madera Drug Crime Attorney Defending Minors / Juveniles
I offer sound legal advice and aggressive defense for juveniles charged with a variety of crimes, including:
- Drug crimes
- Gang crime
- Sex crimes
- Underage drinking and DUI
- Theft and vandalism
Depending on the facts, some juveniles who are accused of committing a crime can be tried in adult court. A conviction in adult court will dramatically impact your child’s future in countless ways. If you have a child who has been charged with a crime, I will fight to keep it in juvenile court, where criminal records remain sealed so the offense will not follow the child into adulthood. When your child is arrested, it’s important to have a knowledgeable juvenile court lawyer in your corner as quickly as possible.
