Santa Clara County Teen Defense Lawyer
After four decades of working on cases involving California’s juvenile law, the offices of Wesley Schroeder are uniquely poised to help young people needing representation in juvenile court. We understand the trauma a young person experiences after being arrested and the fear of what might happen as a result of their alleged crime.
Since juvenile law is one of the areas emphasized in our practice, we are well versed in the factors that differentiate juvenile court from the local adult court. Different procedures with a separate set of rules require varying legal strategies. If your child is facing charges in juvenile court, you need an attorney who understands these important nuances and is prepared to act aggressively to defend your child.

When we take a juvenile case, our first objective in representing your child is to prevent conviction. Secondly, in pursuit of the best possible outcome for you and your family, we will seek to provide choices for the court to assign alternate options to custodial detention, should a finding against the child occur.
California has a wide variety of options available to keep young people out of “the system”. Some of the alternate options we may pursue for the benefit of your child include:
- House Arrest — confined by authorities to a certain residence with certain predetermined exceptions
- Placement — a minor could be required to live somewhere other than his or her home:
- With a qualified relative
- Foster home
- With a group
Some of the common alleged juvenile offenses by clients we represent include:
- Under age alcohol consumption
- Driving under the influence of alcohol
- Assault with a weapon
- Weapons possession
- Simple assault
- Reckless driving
- Sex-related offenses and sex offender registration
If your child has been accused of any of these or other juvenile charges, do not hesitate to contact us for help.
