Aggressively Protecting Your Child's Rights and Future

Juvenile Crimes Attorneys
Juvenile Delinquency Lawyers

Like adults, juveniles can be arrested and prosecuted for serious crimes.  Although the juvenile criminal justice system treats children and juveniles differently in many respects, the penalties and long term consequences of a juvenile delinquent disposition, or a waiver into adult court for a misdemeanor/felony criminal charge can be devastating.

The juvenile justice system is based on the concept that juvenile offenders are are fundamentally different than adults, both in terms of the level of responsibility that is expected of them, and their potential for rehabilitation.  The policies underlying the Juvenile Court are therefore focused on treatment and rehabilitation, rather than punishment of young offenders.  Although this sounds nice, the reality is that unless your child is represented by an attorney, his or her rights can be—and often are—ignored or even violated.

Attorney Sydne French brings a unique set of skills to your child's defense in juvenile crimes cases.  She earned her degree in clinical psychology with numerous high honors and distinction at the University of California in Berkeley.   Sydne has extensive experience working with at-risk-youth populations, and those with learning disorders, behavioral disorders, and other types of difficulties children in trouble with the law typically exhibit.  She is skilled at helping juvenile case workers, prosecutors, and judges to see your child in a more positive light, and to understand why your child deserves a second chance.  In most cases, she has successfully prevented formal charges from ever being filed in the first place.
