San Diego Juvenile Defense Attorney

Juvenile Crime Law

When a child is charged with a crime, it affects the entire family. This is especially true in cases where a minor has been charged with a serious criminal offense, such as a sex crime, assault, or even murder.

Whether your child has committed a crime, been wrongfully accused of a criminal act, or simply made a mistake, the guidance of a juvenile defense lawyer can help you get through this difficult time. Juvenile crimes law varies from state to state, but a lawyer can help you understand your child’s legal options and answer all of your questions regarding your child’s case.

Helping Young Offenders

At Law Office of Bill O'Connell, our attorneys assist juvenile clients and their families by negotiating with the prosecution to reduce the charges, if possible. We also aim to work with prosecutors to ensure that children are charged as minors, not adults. In some cases, by taking this step, children face fewer penalties and are therefore able to move forward with their lives more quickly.

Not all attorneys are equipped to work with juvenile defendants. It takes a combination of compassion and knowledge of the law to see your child through the juvenile court system and work to achieve the best possible outcome.

Remember: A criminal charge against your child doesn’t have to negatively affect the rest of his or her life. If your child is in trouble, call Law Office of Bill O'Connell today.
