Juvenile Crimes Lawyers in Los Angeles
More than 60 Years Spent Protecting Young People from Criminal Convictions
If you are a minor and have been charged with a crime, or if you are the parent of an underage child who is facing charges, Gibbons & Gibbons can help. We are experienced Los Angeles juvenile defense attorneys who have focused on criminal defense for more than 60 years combined. Don’t wait to contact our firm and get started on planning your defense.
Our firm understands the negative effects that criminal charges and convictions can have on young people and their futures. Their friends and family can lose respect for them, as can their teachers and mentors. Employers will be less likely to trust or hire them, and colleges and universities could reject their applications.
Compassionate Representation from Beginning to End
Gibbons & Gibbons truly cares for each one of our clients, especially those just starting out in life. While children are not processed, tried, or penalized the same way as adults, the penalties for a juvenile crime can still be severe.
Underage individuals are held in juvenile detention facilities instead of jail and can be sentenced to a residential rehabilitation center if convicted of a serious crime. In some extreme cases, such as first-degree murder, a minor could even be tried as an adult and face the same sentence that a convicted adult would. It is crucial that you or your child retain the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer.
Our firm helps juveniles explore options such as:
- Community service
- Treatment programs
- Reducing criminal charges to obtain a better sentence
- Mentorship programs
