Juvenile crime does not have the onus of adult crime. The emphasis after an arrest for a juvenile crime is on rehabilitation, not punishment. It is important, however, to make the most of this opportunity, to assure your child has the necessary help and guidance through the juvenile court process. Contact the Law Offices of Rudolph E. Loewenstein in Orange County, California.

- Drug possession
- Theft, shoplifting
- Destruction of property
This does not have to ruin your child's life. A juvenile crime does not go on a permanent criminal record. The records are sealed. It does help to have a lawyer to assure the court is aware of all the relevant circumstances and can provide an outcome that fits your child's needs. If there is a chance of moving the case to an adult court, it is especially important to have a criminal defense lawyer.
The family is important in resolving the situation. Your attorney can explain what is happening, what the options are and how you can support the process your child is going through. In juvenile law, clients particularly appreciate the personalized service and individual attention offered by the Law Offices of Rudolph E. Loewenstein.
