california criminal law: procedure and practice


Kestenbaum Eisner & Gorin LLP is a top-rated Los Angeles juvenile criminal defense firm. Our criminal defense lawyers have been helping minors arrested for Violent Crimes to obtain superior results for over 50 years in Southern California juvenile courts. When we work with our clients, we do everything possible to make sure that they receive reliable and aggressive representation in and out of court.

Criminal acts committed by juveniles that involve the use of violence or threat of violence in the commission of the act are labeled as violent crimes. If a weapon is used, the offense will be prosecuted as a felony in Los Angeles Juvenile Courts. Some of the most frequently prosecuted violent crimes in Los Angeles County include robbery (Penal Code Section 211), assault causing great bodily injury (Penal Code Section 245), battery (Penal Code Section 242-243), murder (Penal Code Section 187), attempted murder (Penal Code Section 664/187), manslaughter (Penal Code Section 192), vehicular manslaughter (Penal Code Section 191), gang crimes (Penal Code Section 186.22), kidnapping (Penal Code Section 207-209), carjacking (Penal Code Section 215), and sexual assault (Penal Code Section 261, 288, 289).

A juvenile convicted of a felony violent crime may be sentenced to substantial detention time in Suitable Placement, Camp, and the California Youth Authority. Our juvenile defense attorneys tenaciously fight serious crimes in court to dismiss or reduce allegations to obtain an Informal Juvenile Resolution.

If the state is seeking to prosecute your child as an adult pursuant to a Fitness "Adult Court" Motion for a violent and serious criminal "strike" offense, our law firm works with a team of psychologists, investigators, and other experts to persuade the Los Angeles Juvenile Court that your child can be rehabilitated in juvenile court, rather than being incarcerated in adult jail or prison.
