When your child is in trouble or you face a DCFS investigation, you need an experienced attorney to help guide you through the legal process and protect your family.

Understanding Illinois Juvenile Laws

Since its creation in 1899, the juvenile court has viewed those referred to it as people needing help rather than criminals deserving of punishment. This rehabilitative aspect has made it an appropriate venue for those under the age of 16. In the modern era, the principle of restorative justice has taken on a new life, allowing even more options for juveniles convicted of crimes. Instead of time in a juvenile detention center, a youth may find themselves participating in community-based justice interventions, such as counseling.

The juvenile law system is different in many ways from the system facing adults. To begin with, it is, at its core, much more rehabilitation-oriented. Also, terms are different; for example, instead of receiving “verdicts,” juveniles are “adjudicated.” Some of the offenses are different as well. These cases demand sensitive yet strong legal representation.

They can review the facts of their case and offer your child a thoroughly skilled defense. Our lawyers understand what is at stake for your child when they’re facing significant charges.
