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."
