Felony Juvenile “Crimes”

Fortunately, courts in Southern California take a rehabilitative approach in juvenile crime cases whenever possible. However, that should not lull those accused into a false sense of security. If a serious juvenile case is handled improperly, the juvenile can have a felony strike on his or her record which lasts a lifetime.

Attorney Michael J. Holmes is a former prosecutor who knows how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the prosecution’s case. As your representative, he will work to build a strong and effective case for your child. Our firm’s first goal will be to keep the case out of adult court, if at all possible. We can work vigorously at all stages of the legal process to protect your child’s rights and obtain the best outcome possible.

Rehabilitation & Not Punishment

Juvenile courts are often receptive to rehabilitative solutions proposed by the defense. In many cases, our firm has succeeded in obtaining outcomes that avoid conviction and detention. We are creative in our approach and will work to develop a solution that minimizes the consequences and avoids a conviction and criminal record.

Young people can act foolishly. With the help of The Law Office of Michael J. Holmes, PC, your child’s mistake does not have to ruin his or her life.
