Juvenile Law Court Attorneys

It's every parent's nightmare — but sadly, it's not uncommon. Every year in the United States, over 2 million children under the age of 18 go through the juvenile court system, and 1.7 million delinquency cases are disposed. 

When your child faces delinquency charges, it's important not to panic or catastrophize. The best thing you can do is be prepared.

That's where Morgan & Morgan can help. Our team of experienced attorneys understand the particulars of the juvenile law system and will act with transparency and compassion to obtain justice for your child.

The Juvenile Court System

The juvenile court handles cases differently than the adult court system. Its primary goal is rehabilitation, not punishment. Thus, children between the ages of 8 and 18 generally face delinquency charges rather than criminal ones. These are treated as civil matters. Instead of sentencing the juvenile offender to prison time, the judge orders a course of action that will help the child and their family avoid further criminal action.

For instance, if a minor abuses alcohol, the court may require them to get alcohol counseling rather administering punishment for breaking the law.

Not all juvenile offenses are minor. Some, like rape and murder, may be so severe that the offender is charged in the adult criminal court system rather than appearing before a juvenile court judge.

Juvenile Law Court Attorneys FAQs

  • How Can a Juvenile Law Attorney Help?

    The presence of an attorney can help juvenile offenders in the following ways:

    • They can get a case diverted so the juvenile does not end up with a record.
    • They can arrange for the juvenile to be released from pre-adjudication detention.
    • They can prevent a juvenile from being tried in adult court.
    • They can predispose the judge to consider a compassionate disposition.

    Not every case requires a juvenile law attorney. Some charges are so minor that having an attorney present could delay the process or even cause a judge to reconsider the severity of the case. However, if your child has been arrested and is facing a court appearance, you should consult an attorney immediately to benefit from their knowledge of the juvenile court system.
