Importance of attorneys in juvenile justice cases
In some states, your child may not be allowed to plead guilty unless he or she has spoken with an attorney. Even if your child is guilty of the crime with which he or she is charged, it is imperative that you seek the advice of experienced counsel so that the sentence can be minimized and your child can be maximizing the opportunities to move ahead towards a brighter future. Juvenile defense attorneys are needed to equalize the balance of power between the child and the prosecution, and to ensure that the constitutional rights that are guaranteed to all juvenile defendants, whether guilty or not, are preserved.
