Juvenal LawAdjudication (juvenile conviction) has latent effects that many people — even adult criminal defense lawyers — may be unaware of, including ineligibility for student loans, subsidized housing, employment in certain fields and government assistance.

We Work To Secure The Best Possible Outcome

Sentences for juvenile crimes can include probation, fines, community service, restitution to cover losses and detention at a juvenile correctional facility.

If we are unable to accomplish this, we will work with the prosecution to negotiate an alternative sentence that will have the least impact on the minor's future. While we are usually able to agree to terms, we will not hesitate to fight for your child's best interest in court if negotiation is not possible.
