Juvenile Defense

Los Angeles Juvenile Defense Attorney Debra S. White

In California, the juvenile justice system is comprised of a unique set of laws and procedures that are very different than those in adult criminal court. Minors who violate criminal laws are prosecuted in a “juvenile court” which is the division of the superior court where juvenile delinquency proceedings take place. These proceedings are considered “civil” in nature, rather than “criminal” but the minor receives many of the same constitutional protections that an adult would receive.

For certain serious offenses, a minor can be tried in adult court.

  • School Hearings
  • Drug Offenses
  • Theft & Fraud
  • Sex Crimes
  • Violent Offenses

Protection, Passion, and Planning

Criminal defense attorney Debra S. White has a thorough understanding of California’s juvenile laws and extensive experience defending minors in juvenile delinquency proceedings throughout Los Angeles juvenile courts. She also possesses the necessary compassion and desire to protect minors and their future from negative consequences.

Attorney Debra White does not believe that young offenders are “bad seeds” – rather, she believes such children are simply misguided, lost, make poor decisions, exercise bad judgment, and make mistakes; they need the right kind of help. Attorney White works closely with her juvenile clients and their families to understand and provide the right kind of help that is unique to each individual and their case. She fights to provide not only the best possible defense, but to give back hope in their life and for their future.
