I KNOW THE JUVENILE COURT SYSTEM
People facing criminal charges in juvenile court are not entitled to a jury trial. Rather, a judge hears arguments and renders a decision on the matter. Cases move very quickly from arraignment to trial; therefore, it is important to consult a skilled lawyer right away.
When a juvenile crime, such as shoplifting or drug possession, is committed, it is often the offender’s first encounter with the law. There are two potential routes that may ensue. The youthful offender may continue down the path of juvenile crime into a life of adult crime – or, they may straighten out and have a productive and profitable future. I strive to get clients rehabilitated so that their futures are protected.
