Juvenile Crimes

The Johnson Criminal Law Group recognizes that juvenile delinquency law is a specialized area of the law that requires an experienced juvenile crimes attorney. Juvenile delinquency courts apply the Welfare and Institutions Code section 602 and the California Penal Code. Children and young adults in this system are uniquely situated because they are charged with criminal conduct but lack the maturity to be treated like adults in most cases. Lauren K Johnson knows that parents whose children commit acts that lead to juvenile charges are extremely concerned about their children and the potential consequences of their juvenile cases.

At the Johnson Criminal Law Group, our primary goal is to protect your child's future including their record, their ability to go to college and obtain financial aid, their ability to drive, and their liberty. We believe parents are usually in the best position to set consequences when kids exercise bad judgment. Sometimes parents need assistance and we help families connect with resources, therapists, treatment providers, and other assistance to help get the young person back on track. Our goal is to help parents keep kids out of "the system."

Lauren Johnson was amazing. She explained everything in ways that were easily understood, & answered all of my question. She was respectful, but also open & honest. She started work on my case the first day we met & got results quickly. She demonstrated passion, concern, and showed true feeling for my situation. My expectations were greatly exceeded. I would say she has an incredible attention for detail, & has a real dedication to her work. Lauren Johnson would be my first recommendation to any of my family or friends similarly in need of legal assistance. Heather

I researched a lot of attorneys and had met with two attorneys before speaking with Ms. Johnson and retaining her. I was facing serious charges that could not be on my record, due to my job and was really scared. I felt hopeless & thought my life was ruined...until I found Ms. Johnson... A criminal defense client (drug case)

Lauren K. Johnson was my saving grace. I naively thought you were innocent until proven guilty. However, I soon discovered that CPS and family court does not see things that way... Mrs. G, a CPS client
