Juvenile Defense

A Juvenile Delinquency Defense Firm Dedicated to Your Needs

Juvenile Delinquency Defense

If your teen has been charged with a crime in Sacramento or Placer County, you need an experienced juvenile delinquency defense lawyer. Since 2001, we have defended thousands of young people charged in California juvenile court ranging from homicide charges and motions to transfer cases to adult court to petty theft. We specifically try to work toward complete record sealing for every client to protect their future. Work with an attorney whose primary practice area is defending young people accused in juvenile court.

Why Work With a Lawyer Whose Primary Practice Is Defending Juveniles?

The juvenile justice system is very different from the adult criminal system. Many serious cases are accompanied with a motion to transfer the case to adult court, a very serious and specialized proceeding that we have extensive experience handling. We have specialized our practice in juvenile court and handled thousands of juvenile delinquency cases in Sacramento and Placer County.

Juveniles Have Many Sentencing Options

Juvenile delinquency proceedings are not the same as adult criminal cases. Juvenile courts were created in order to rehabilitate young people, not punish them. Juvenile detention is often considered a last resort imposed only when less restrictive alternatives are not appropriate. We work closely with parents and their children to find options that will work best in your situation.

In many cases, charges ultimately can be dismissed, the arrest deemed never to have occurred, and the juvenile records sealed. (Welfare and Institutions Code § 790793786781 In fact, Juvenile Court proceedings are not considered "criminal proceedings," and any proven misconduct is not deemed a "conviction of a crime for any purpose." (Welfare and Institutions Code § 203).

Sealing Your Juvenile Record

We can help to expunge and seal most juvenile records so you can move on with your life without having "convictions" or sustained juvenile delinquency petitions found true against you.
