Orlando Juvenile Crime Attorneys

Strong Representation for Your Child

Juvenile Defense Lawyer Orlando

The juvenile justice system is different. It has evolved over the years based on the premise that juveniles are different from adults and juveniles who commit criminal acts generally should be treated differently from adults. Separate courts, detention facilities, rules, procedures, and laws were created for juveniles with the intent to protect their welfare and rehabilitate them. The Juvenile Justice System can be confusing and should never be navigated alone by a child and their family. A strong advocate can be essential. Our juvenile defense lawyers have the knowledge and competency to work through the juvenile justice system for the best result possible.

When a juvenile is accused of a crime in Florida, the legal process is very different. The juvenile crime is called an act of delinquency and requires juvenile court intervention to deal with the delinquency. There are sentencing and court alternative options which exist in the juvenile system, which are markedly different than what exists in the adult system. Moreover, there has been a strong push in recent years to have some juveniles waived over to adult courts for adult prosecution and sentences. It can be essential to have an experienced attorney who is familiar with juvenile court and the entire juvenile system when your child is facing arrest or prosecution.
