Regardless of the specific circumstances pertaining to your juvenile delinquency case,  our team will go the distance for you, providing the type of aggressive litigation you need throughout the entirety of your case.

Juveniles Treated as Adults

A growing trend in criminal law is to punish juveniles the same as adults. We believe this is the wrong approach. We fight to keep teenagers charged with crimes of robbery, burglary, rape, gang crimes, drunk driving, or murder in the juvenile system.

Juvenile Sex Crimes Cases

Juvenile sex crimes are one of our specialties. Often innocent interaction between juveniles are interpreted by law enforcement as intentional sex molestation. Do not naively cooperate with authorities. Call us first.

School Crime Cases

If your child is faced with suspension from school for alleged misconduct or juvenile delinquency, call us. Our criminal lawyers will deal with the school authorities.

Child Abuse Cases

If Child Protective Services (CPS) are threatening to take your children, call us immediately. Misguided social workers can do a lot of harm by taking children from a loving environment and putting them in foster care. We will go to court to get your child back home.

Sealing a Juvenile Record

If your son or daughter has had problems with the juvenile authorities, their record can be sealed so it won’t follow them the rest of their life. We can help.

icon-smallJuvenile Delinquency FAQs

My child was arrested and taken away from me. Where will he or she go?
  • Your child can be put on probation. He or she may have to live in with a relative, in a foster home or group home, or in an institution.
  • Your child can be put on probation and sent to a probation camp or ranch.
  • Your child can be sent to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Justice  (also called “DJJ”). If your child is tried in adult court, he or she will be sent to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Adult Operations  (also called “CDCR”).

If your child is sent to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ), he or she will go to a “reception center” for the first 30 to 90 days. The center will find out what education and treatment your child needs. Then your child will go a correctional facility or youth camp.

Call us, We can help!

Can my child’s juvenile records be sealed?

Sometimes. Not all records can be sealed. Your child can file a petition to have the records sealed after he or she turns 18. Or you can file a petition 5 or 6 years after the case is over.

If the court approves the petition, all records of the case and the arrest will be sealed. Get help from your child’s lawyer or probation officer.

Can a juvenile court record be used against my child as an adult?

The three-strikes law says that some serious or violent crimes can count as strikes in the future. This can happen even if the records are sealed.

Will my child be tried in adult court?
A child who is 14 years old can be tried in adult court for some serious crimes. Here are some examples:

  • Murder and attempted murder,
  • Setting fire to a building with people in it,
  • Robbery with a weapon,
  • Rape,
  • Kidnapping or carjacking,
  • Crimes with guns,
  • Drug crimes, and
  • Escaping from a juvenile detention facility.

There are big differences between juvenile court and adult court. If the state wants to try your child as an adult, talk to a lawyer about what can happen.

Will my child go to the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, Division of Adult Operations (CDCR) instead of the Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ)?

Your child can only be sent to adult prison (CDCR) if he or she is tried in adult court. If your child is tried in adult court, talk to a lawyer.

Even if your child is sentenced to adult prison, he or she will stay at the DJJ until he or she is at least 16.

If your child is at least 16, the judge can send him or her directly to adult prison. Or if your child’s sentence ends before he or she turns 21, the judge can let him or her stay at the DJJ the whole time. If the sentence is longer, your child will go to the CDCR on his or her 18th birthday.

Am I financially responsible for my child's behavior?

Yes. You may have to pay the victim if the court orders “restitution.” Restitution is money to compensate for losses or damage caused by your child. For example, you may have to pay for what your child stole, or for the victim’s medical bills or lost wages.

“ My goal is to preserve your dignity and your humanity throughout what can be a very difficult and painful process, while at the same time achieving a favorable outcome on your behalf ”
