Having a child charged with a juvenile offense can be devastating and you need a compassionate, experienced attorney who is familiar with California’s delinquency laws. Not having proper representation for your child during this process can have serious consequences. At the Law Office of Diana James, our top priority is to ensure your child’s rights are fully protected and these charges do not follow your child the rest of their lives.
One major difference between the adult and juvenile criminal justice systems is the juvenile system was not intended to punish the child (even though it may feel that way). The objective behind the juvenile system is to rehabilitate and prevent repeat behavior so your child is not caught up in the adult system once he/she turns eighteen. It is this because of this major difference there are many options available to juveniles who find themselves charged with a crime.
It is important to retain the services of a experienced counsel to can help you and your child navigate through the proceedings and find a solution that does what the system intended.
