Ensure The Protection Of Your Child's Future

It is in your child's best interest for you to consult a criminal defense lawyer who can walk you through the juvenile justice system and figure out the best possible disposition for your child. A plea deal may seem like the easy way out, but it can have long-term effects on your child's future.

California has a three-strikes law, and a juvenile conviction can result in the first strike, depending on the age of your child at the time the offense was committed. Just one strike on a criminal record can result in more severe consequences. It is important to understand how juvenile court works and find alternative charges or dispositions or avoid lifelong consequences. Protect your child from the negative long-term effects by preparing them with an aggressive criminal defense.
