Giving You Peace Of Mind And Confidence Through Reliable Representation

When Teens Face Criminal Law Authorities

As parents, our first instinct is to protect our children. So naturally, a phone call from the police department about a child’s arrest is a parent’s worst nightmare. In any criminal matter involving a minor, defense becomes a stressful family affair.

At Lozano Meza Law Firm, we have defended many of our community’s children from charges, ranging from simple misdemeanors to felonies.

Much Is At Risk For A Minor In A Criminal Case

Juvenile law works differently in many ways, so if your child has been charged with any sort of crime, it is important to consult with an experienced juvenile law attorney as quickly as possible.

Having an effective defense lawyer on your side can lessen the odds of your child facing more serious penalties – and may result in reduced charges or a case dismissal. Keep in mind that the outcome of your child’s criminal case will become critical as the juvenile begins the college admissions process or tries to gain employment. A timely, aggressive defense can make a great difference in your child’s future.

Our Areas Of Juvenile Law Practice

We have a strong track record of successful outcomes on behalf of past clients in juvenile cases. On many occasions, we have been able to seal juvenile records so that they have the best chance at a successful future.

  • Aggravated sexual assault and indecency
  • Alcohol-related offenses, including driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Drug offenses (possession, manufacturing and distribution)
  • Cyber crimes and other felonies
  • Animal cruelty
  • Theft, robbery or burglary (involving habitations, buildings or vehicles)
  • Weapons violations, murder and other violent crimes
  • Criminal mischief or trespass
  • Simple or aggravated assault, family violence and/or inflicting injuries to children, elderly or disabled

We personalize our approach to each client’s unique circumstances. For example, sometimes the state is seeking a determinate sentence or attempting to certify the juvenile as an adult. We are aggressive in our pursuit of favorable outcomes in these cases, as well as in seeking probation modifications. As appropriate, we will pursue the sealing of the juvenile’s criminal record of an arrest or conviction.
