Juvenile Law is an area of criminal law reserved for individuals who are not of legal age that need assistance with either juvenile delinquency or dependency neglect matters. Juvenile cases may involve offenses such as the driving violations, truancy, burglary, drug possession, assault, sexual offenses, theft, or murder. The focus of the juvenile court is on rehabilitation of offenders rather than on punishment.
An experienced juvenile lawyer will be able to guide you and your child through the legal process and can explain what options are available to him or her. The lawyer can also represent your child at court hearings, may help your child avoid incarceration, advocate for leniency on your child’s behalf, and work to protect your child’s future by preventing or minimizing the effect of the juvenile’s court record.
Your Family Isn't In This Alone
"I discovered the law again. You actually made me think about it. I managed to get through three years of law school without doing that."
