Los Angeles Juvenile Criminal Attorney

Has Your Underage Teenager Been Arrested for a Crime in Los Angeles?

If your child has been accused of a crime in California, you must act fast before they get entangled in the juvenile criminal justice system. Whether they have been caught with drugs or alcohol, or they are being accused of theft or vandalism, it is vital that you take precautions to protect their future. If you do not act fast, they could up end with a criminal record, which makes it very difficult to get admitted into higher education institutions and to land a career in the future. Here at the Law Offices of Robert M. Bernstein, we are committed to protecting the rights of the accused for both juveniles and adults.

Alternate Sentencing for Juvenile Offenders

In certain cases, some juveniles face steep fines, juvenile detention or they can even be tried as adults in serious cases. What our firm does is focus on negotiating with the judge and juvenile case officers to reach an alternative form of sentencing that focuses on addressing the core issue rather than punishing them. If your child has a problem with illegal drugs or alcohol, then we could recommend to the court counseling or treatment programs rather than sending them to juvenile detention. We work hand in hand with specialists who can diagnose psychological and medical issues, so see if there is an underlying cause for the delinquent behavior. If they do have a condition, then we can work to get them the help and treatment that they need so that they can have a second chance at life.

Types of Juvenile Crimes

The specific criminal charges that your child is facing will determine the possible penalties or consequences. There are a number of juvenile crimes that we have dealt with here at the firm including:
