When necessary, I have referred clients to highly qualified professionals. In many cases, the willingness of a juvenile to undergo treatment can have a highly favorable impact on the case’s outcome.
Sometimes, it is also desirable to contact the prosecuting attorney before the court date in order to discuss court diversion alternatives. These alternatives include community service or appearing before a jury of juveniles who can suggest a more productive punishment.
If you or your child has been approached by law enforcement or charged with a crime, please contact me immediately for the best chance of a favorable outcome.
A particularly useful overview of the issues relating to Illinois juvenile law can be found at Juvenile Justice Initiative.
