JUVENILE COURT PROCEEDINGS

If you are a parent with a child who has been arrested for a criminal offense, you must understand that there are many differences between the juvenile justice system and the adult justice system. The two most significant differences are that juveniles are not allowed to be released on bail and they are not entitled to a trial by jury. In Juvenile Court a Judge or Commissioner is the sole person to determine the guilt or innocence of your child. With the many differences between adult and juvenile criminal cases, you need to hire a knowledgeable and experienced juvenile defense attorney.

William J. Taylor has represented numerous juveniles in court appointed cases and privately retained cases.  He believes that representing juveniles requires working closely with the accused in order to make him or her aware of the consequences of potential criminal activity, and how to prevent a life course that could lead to potential adult criminal activity.
