Defense Attorney for Juvenile Crimes in Sylmar Juvenile Court

Young people can make mistakes, or can be with the wrong company at the wrong time. If your child is facing criminal charges, it can have a very serious impact on their lives and future opportunities. Although the juvenile court system is geared towards rehabilitation, as with any system, there are serious failures, and contacts can be made in the detention home that could be detrimental to your child's future as well. Keeping a case in juvenile court is important, however, and if there is an effort to move the case to adult court, it must be aggressively challenged by the attorney. He will fight for your child, no matter how serious the offense.
