Juvenile Criminal Defense Lawyer in Walnut Creek

Helping to minimize the consequences of a mistake

The Card Law Firm seeks to bring about change in the lives of minors and young adults who – through mistake or inadvertence – find themselves in trouble with the law. Our firm helps parents set things right by advocating for their children in court. Our attorney communicates with the local judge or prosecutor to seek leniency in sentencing if your child has admitted to his or her mistake. For first-time offenders, it may be possible to get the sentence reduced to probation contingent on good behavior.

A moment of poor judgment can result in a lifetime of adverse consequences for your child. Record of the arrest, adjudication and disposition, along with fingerprints and DNA profiles, remain public, potentially leading to loss of educational prospects and employment opportunities. Steps you take to rehabilitate your child's record are of utmost importance in the weeks following an arrest or conviction. Our attorney can advise you about the legal rights and opportunities you waive at every stage of litigation. Our attorney stands ready to represent juveniles in cases involving:

  • Drug possession
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Shoplifting
  • Theft
  • Assault
  • Traffic violations
  • Drunk driving offenses
  • Truancy
  • Sex offenses
  • And many others

Justice is handled very differently in juvenile court than it is in the adult criminal justice system, and the lawyer representing your child's interests should be aware of the variances. Our firm's lawyer has the knowledge and skill needed to sort through the issues and problems presented by the juvenile justice system.
