Few things are scarier for a child or parent than going to court. It's full of strange words and procedures. Looming behind it all is the ever-present question of whether the minor will be able to go home or will be placed in custody.
That's why it's critical to have a skilled criminal defense attorney at your child's side. And not just any attorney will do, because the juvenile criminal law system differs in significant ways from the corresponding adult system, so it's essential that you retain a defense lawyer versed specifically in juvenile law.
An effective defense can mean all the difference...in terms of whether a petition will be filed against your child in the first place, whether your child can go home with you, whether he/she will have to spend time in juvenile hall - and in the worst of cases - whether he/she will need to serve time in state prison as an "adult" offender.
