Juvenile dependency trials determine if a parent, or guardian, has neglected or abused their child. Until a child becomes an adult, their guardian is responsible for their well-being. If the parents can’t, or won’t, take care of the child, the juvenile court may step in by removing the child from the home.
At our firm, we represent the juvenile or the parents with the goal of helping you get through this process quickly and with little suffering for either party. We are very compassionate when it comes to children’s well-being, and we guide families through the steps to ensure the outcome is the best for everyone involved.
A minor that has participated in illegal behavior needs an experienced attorney. Driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license, and theft are in our area of expertise, and we have spent many years working with the juvenile detention centers.
In recent years, the average age for first-time arrests has dropped significantly, and younger boys and girls are committing crimes. Some of the offenses range from status offenses such as underage smoking and drinking to property damage and violent crimes.
First-time and repeat offenders need experienced attorneys to get them through the necessary filings and court proceedings. Let us help you get your child get back on the right track with a fresh start.
Categories of Juvenile Delinquency:
- Criminal Behavior – Crimes Handled by the Criminal Justice System

- Status Offenses, Including Truancy – Offenses Classified as Such because of Minor Status, Handled by the Juvenile Courts
The best place for your child is at home with parents, not incarcerated. Most juvenile crimes are similar to those for adult offenders, but the penalties and laws associated with juvenile crimes are different. Juveniles are not entitled to a trial by jury and are not allowed to be released on bail. Our attorneys have a better chance of getting the child into rehabilitation instead of placement in a state facility.
