california criminal law: procedure and practice


Our juvenile defense firm's strong belief is that kids require rehabilitation, not incarceration. We work aggressively to obtain informal probation and diversion programs for our minor clients, to prevent a criminal conviction to affect the rest of their lives.

On dozens of occasions, our juvenile clients left the court's jurisdiction without a blemish on their record! The Welfare and Institutions Code provide numerous options to avoid a juvenile conviction, or sustained petition. Our juvenile defense attorneys have frequently obtained numerous dispositions pursuant to sections 654, 725, and 790 of the Welfare and Institutions Code. As a result, our juvenile clients can move on with their lives with academics, maintaining school or athletic scholarships, and pursuing future careers.

Our juvenile criminal defense lawyers have been helping minors throughout Southern California to obtain superior results for over 50 years. We fight for their rights, question the government's case, and do everything possible to make sure that you receive aggressive representation in and out of court. That is why we have been rated a Top 5% U.S. Pre-Eminent Law Firm by Martindale-Hubbell, a national Lawyer Review Service, annually since 2003.

Kids deserve a second chance, and their age should be taken into consideration by courts and the prosecutor's office. Our defense lawyers specialize in defending juvenile matters, and avoiding custodial time in juvenile hall for charges including Violent Crime, Sex Crimes, Theft-Fraud, Burglary, Vandalism, Weapons Charges, Bench Warrants, Drug Offenses, and other serious criminal offenses.

The juvenile justice system operates twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, every week of the year, and so does the juvenile and delinquency defense firm of Kestenbaum Eisner & Gorin LLP. Any client, including his/her family, new to the Firm or with an existing case, can reach the Firm in the event of an emergency 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including Sundays and holidays.

No client should ever left alone to deal with the authorities without expert criminal defense work – this is especially the case for juveniles. Contact our juvenile criminal defense attorneys at Kestenbaum, Eisner & Gorin, LLP, at (877) 781-1570. Our knowledgeable legal team can evaluate your case issues and advise you of your legal options before you go to court.
