Defending Juveniles Charged With a Crime

Though juveniles can be charged with the same types of crimes as adults can, the consequences may have a greater impact on their futures. If you face juvenile charges, or are the parent of a child facing juvenile charges, turn to the Law Office of Ivan O.B. Morse. We have over 25 years of experience handling a range of criminal matters, ranging from petty theft and juvenile delinquency to murder.

We aggressively stand up for the rights of juveniles just as we advocate for the rights of adults. Attorney Ivan O.B. Morse is a former police officer who has handled many juvenile matters from multiple perspectives. As an investigator in the juvenile division of the Oakland Police for three years, Mr. Morse gained experience that now helps him defend juveniles in many different types of situations.

Under Mr. Morse's guidance, our firm strives to get the juvenile back on the right track. We pursue a resolution that is in their best interests, keeping short-term and long-term impacts in mind. In some cases, it is best to see that the juvenile is placed in an environment where they can be rehabilitated. This does not necessarily mean that they are found guilty of the crime. We use our experience to negotiate with the prosecutor, seeking a resolution that best suits our client's needs. However, we do not back down from a fight and vigorously litigate the case when necessary.

Our firm is also skilled at handling matters involving the sealing of juvenile records. Though this is not always possible, it can help give juveniles a fresh start for the future.
