No parent wants to see their child marked for life with a criminal record. Even if a criminal record is not available to the public, the child will always feel the pain of a juvenile criminal conviction. Occasionally, a child deserves to be in the juvenile criminal justice system, but the system should not be allowed to inflict more punishment than the act warrants. It is equally true that a juvenile offender deserves a chance to correct their behavior.

Criminal Justice Links, Criminal Law and Procedures, and Additional Resources for Retained Clients
When in trouble with the law, one of the first priorities should be to retain the services of a professional criminal defense lawyer. Without legal guidance, many innocent defendants find that their cases are not as easily defensible as they originally believed. Coming to court with a homemade defense is essentially asking for a sentence; as such, the legal team at our firm strongly advises you to come to us in your most trying time of need.
At the Law Offices of Joseph P. Smith, Inc., established in 1989, we realize that many people do not plan on having to use an attorney. Many simply believe that they will never get in trouble with the law. It is an unfortunate event when a run in with the law occurs, especially in cases where an overzealous police officer makes a wrongful arrest or an unreliable witness names you as a suspect. For these most bitter moments in life, our legal team has stepped forward to lend a helping hand and aggressive defense.
Due to the severity of an accusation or arrest, securing legal assistance will be imperative in finding an ideal outcome in your case. An Orange County criminal lawyer can work with you on building a strong and compelling defensive argument to bring to court. Without the legal help of an attorney, you could be leaving the outcome of your case up to chance. An attorney well-versed in every aspect of criminal law can be your only line of defense.
