Juvenile Law Attorney Serving San Jose and Santa Clara County
Juvenile law is a specialized area of California law. Understanding the complexities and nuances of juvenile law requires experience. The Law Office of Wesley Schroeder will effectively apply our 40 plus years of juvenile law experience to provide the kind of legal care required in juvenile cases.
California Juvenile Courts
Parents are understandably concerned with the outcome of juvenile cases. The balance sought by the courts is both to acknowledge and appropriately deter the law violation while also taking into full consideration the lack of maturity of the minor child. The Welfare and Institutions Code Section 602 and the California Penal Code serve as foundational guidelines for California juvenile courts.
Criminal Defense For Juveniles
The focal point of our advocacy in juvenile delinquency cases is to pursue the best possible protection for your child’s future. Most California courts are open to finding creative alternatives to custody time, when appropriate. We will diligently seek what is best for your child. What is at stake is your child’s criminal record, his or her ability to receive financial aid for college or be accepted to college at all, his or her ability to drive and become employed, and a number of other personal freedoms most citizens enjoy. Courts are open to helping parents get connected with professional assistance in dealing with juveniles – including therapy, medication, and other aids and alternatives to custody. We strive to weave together a solution that incorporates the court’s general willingness to fashion a constructive result which will assure no future law contacts and enable your child to become a productive member of the community. This reflects a focus on rehabilitation rather than punishment.
