Criminal Defense Lawyer San Joaquin County
Zealously Advocating on Behalf of the Accused
If you've been charged with a crime, it can feel overwhelming to face off against the government to defend your innocence. A prosecutor with extensive experience will be doing everything lawfully possible to obtain a conviction. After an extensive investigation, they will have evidence against you that they will use to try to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. And while many people might think such a situation is hopeless and their only option is to plead guilty, know that you can and should challenge the allegations and seek a more favorable outcome in your case.

Our San Joaquin County criminal defense attorneys have years of legal experience, and during that time, we have handled cases of varying complexity, from minor misdemeanors to serious felonies.

San Joaquin County Juvenile Delinquency
The juvenile justice system, while appearing similar to the adult judicial process, is a unique area of the law. If the allegations against the child are proved true, a judge will impose sanctions focused on rehabilitating the minor and helping prevent a pattern of criminal behavior. In some cases, if the petition is sustained (akin to a guilty verdict in an adult case), the child may be sentenced to community service. In others, the judge can order the child to be removed from their home and sent to a juvenile detention facility. Of course, there is a wide range of sanctions that lie between those two extremes.
It's important to know that if your child has been accused of a crime, they do have rights, including the right to have legal counsel throughout the legal process. As with an adult criminal issue, having a lawyer providing sound defense in a juvenile delinquency matter can increase the chances of obtaining a favorable outcome. At The Law Offices of Johnson & Johnson, we will work hard for you and your child and focus on your best interests as we seek an optimal result in their case.
San Joaquin Juvenile Dependency Attorney
Juvenile dependency cases are some of the most sensitive legal matters. Whatever course they take, they can profoundly impact the entire family unit. These cases arise when a person alleges that a parent has abused or neglected their child, allowed their child to be abused or neglected, or has put their child in a situation where abuse or neglect is imminent.
If Child Protective Services is investigating you, not only is your reputation on the line but so too are your parental rights and your child's wellbeing. If a court determines that the allegations against you are true, your child can be taken away from you and placed with a family member or in foster care. At The Law Offices of Johnson & Johnson, we believe that any outcome that splits up a family is detrimental. That is why our San Joaquin County juvenile dependency lawyers will fight aggressively for you to protect the rights and future of you and your child.
