San Diego Juvenile Criminal Defense Lawyer
Is Your Child a California Minor Charged As an Adult?
A young person charged with certain crimes in California may face trial in an adult court. In these circumstances, it is critical to have a defense attorney who can deal with the criminal charges and protect your child. It is also important to have a lawyer who understands the juvenile justice system, because most instances of children being tried as adults originate in juvenile court.
