Juvenile Law

Renowned Los Angeles Based Juvenile Law Attorneys

Sophisticated defense for minor offenders

When you need an experienced lawyer for juvenile criminal defense, Kosnett Law Firm is pleased to step in and help children and teenagers defend themselves and right the wrongs.

Juvenile offenses are handled differently from adult offenses

When a minor commits a crime, it’s important to have an attorney experienced in handling juvenile matters to effectively represent him or her. Juvenile crimes can be devastating to the child and to his or her family, as it may result in loss of a driver’s license, denial of financial aid, eviction from public housing or refusal of employment. Depending on the severity of the crime, the juvenile could be placed on probation, sentenced to a probation camp or juvenile prison, or, for the most serious crimes, tried and charged as an adult, including juvenile life sentences for homicides.

If your child has been arrested, charged or is under investigation for a juvenile crime, you should promptly contact the juvenile criminal defense attorney at Kosnett Law Firm immediately. Nearly every crime that an adult could be charged with is applicable, with caveats, to juveniles as either felonies or misdemeanors, including:

  • Robbery
  • Petty theft
  • Shoplifting
  • DUI
  • Arson
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Speeding and reckless driving
  • Gang crimes
  • Assault
  • Fighting in school
  • Truancy
  • Gun and weapons possession
  • Sex crimes
  • Sexual assault
  • Battery
  • Assault crimes
  • Graffiti
  • Vandalism
  • Drug possession
  • Drug transportation
  • Drug sales
  • Marijuana crimes
  • Murder

At our law firm, we believe it is important that children and young adults are given a chance at rehabilitation, not punishment. Although the Juvenile process is geared toward rehabilitation, an overzealous prosecutor or judge could escalate a situation and attempt to have a child tried in adult court, where he or she will face adult penalties. At our firm, we believe this is not a viable option. An experienced juvenile crime defense attorney at our firm can help you avoid this turn of events.

What Our Clients Say

I am an alumni adviser for a fraternity at USC. The chapter was involved in a disciplinary action with the university. After receiving unusually harsh and unfair sanctions from a student/faculty review committee, our chapter sought counsel from James Kosnett. He attended a hearing with USC administrators, and prepared a compelling written appeal.

-Thanks to James Kosnett we won our appeal..
