Huntington Beach Juvenile Delinquency lawyer
Huntington Beach is not immune to juvenile crimes. The latest census shows that there are almost 40,000 people living in Huntington Beach under the age of 18. Most assume that juvenile delinquency law refers to all crimes committed by a minor under the age of 18 years. In reality, whether someone is tried as an adult or a juvenile depends on the type and severity of the crime. Huntington Beach juvenile delinquency lawyers know, however, that most crimes committed by juveniles are misdemeanors. And young people in Huntington Beach, as anywhere, often do things they shouldn’t and get themselves into trouble. This is sometimes due to drinking or drugs. In many cases, though, even minor mistakes can have lifelong consequences.
Our Huntington Beach juvenile delinquency lawyer believes that everyone deserves the most passionate, committed, and vigorous criminal defense possible, regardless of the crime charged. And our Huntington Beach juvenile delinquency lawyer appreciates that juvenile cases need special attention and the defendants have different needs and problems than dealing with adult defendants. These young defendants have their entire future at risk in these criminal cases and they need a strong advocate in their corner.
Our Huntington Beach juvenile delinquency lawyer has successfully defended many juvenile delinquency cases in California courts, and also works to empower young people and their families to help them stay out of the criminal system.
