Retain an Attorney with Expertise and Experience in Juvenile Law
Our attorney, Mark S. Mayfield, practices in Sacramento, Yolo, San Joaquin, El Dorado, Placer, San Francisco and Alameda Counties. Many California criminal defense attorneys advertise themselves as "juvenile law" attorneys. However, in California, juvenile representation requires specialized knowledge and experience. The Welfare and Instutions Code applies in juvenile court hearings, in addition to the Penal Code and other applicable codes. Our attorney attends specialized training yearly and continues to keep up with juvenile law changes throughout the year.
Many people don't know that some county public defenders will charge you for their services after the case is resolved. We charge an affordable, flat rate fee at the outset with no hidden costs. You owe it to yourself to hire an experienced juvenile law attorney that knows the law, cares about kids, takes the time to meet with you, and puts your child's welfare first. If our office can't get your child's charges dismissed we will do everything allowed by law to get your son or daughter's charges reduced or dismissed. We will also file to have your child's record sealed, if applicable. Your child deserves nothing less.
The procedures and strategies available in Juvenile Courts are very different from adult court. For example, there is no right to bail or a jury trial. Our attorney has an impeccable reputation, his practice is entirely devoted to juvenile law and he will answer to only one person: you. Don't hire an inexperienced lawyer. Your child's freedom and perhaps future is at stake.
