Advocate For Young People Facing Juvenile Offenses

Under Colorado law, children as young as 10 can face charges in the juvenile justice system. Certain offenses can mandate that the child be removed from the home or sent to juvenile prison. In extreme circumstances, the child can even be tried as an adult.

These situations are serious, and there is a great deal at stake. They require that the child be represented by an experienced attorney, someone who is highly familiar with the juvenile justice system.

I have more than 15 years of experience with cases in the juvenile justice system. At my Boulder law firm, I use in-depth understanding of juvenile law to achieve the best possible outcomes for my clients.

I represent minors charged with all types of criminal offenses, including:

Understanding The Juvenile Justice System

Many people do not realize that the Colorado justice system for children is significantly different than that for adults. Unlike the justice system for adults, the juvenile system is designed to protect children and to help them take a positive direction in their lives after getting in trouble.

Because the goals are different, children generally have more options available to them than adults. Experienced attorneys who know the juvenile justice system know these options and can help leverage them to their clients' advantages.

The Need For Expungement Of Juvenile Records

Sometimes people believe that their juvenile records go away when they turn 18. Unfortunately, this is a myth. Your record won't just disappear on its own. It is necessary to take a separate action to have your juvenile record expunged. I can examine your situation and help you understand your options.
