Juvenile Defense

Irvine and Orange County, Juvenile Crimes Defense Lawyer

Therefore, juvenile crimes must be dealt with by an experienced working closely with the family to protect the child and their interests. At the Law Office of David E. Swanson, located in Irvine California we adopt this approach in order to ensure comprehensive counsel to minors and their families who are dealing with juvenile crime charges.

Juvenile Court in California

Attorney Swanson’s approach to handling juvenile crimes is to work with the minor closely along with the parents to develop a strategy to keep the case out of juvenile court. We will work hard to find an acceptable alternative resolution rather than filing a criminal petition in juvenile court that the prosecutor assigned to the case will accept.

Our goal will be to find a solution that is in the best interest of our client that will preserve their clean juvenile record such as a rehabilitation program, community service or enrollment in a diversion program.

Our mission is to avoid any mark on our client’s record or any step in juvenile adjudication that will adversely affect our client’s lives in the future, including seeking employment, applying for housing or credit, and applications to college in the future. Our criminal defense lawyer will ensure the juvenile record is sealed to prevent problems later.
