Juvenile Law

(Welfare and Institutions Sections 602 et. sequential)

On juvenile law matters Mr. Bruzzo oftens works with Ms. Katie Walsh, an Orange County lawyer who is experienced in juvenile law.

Juvenile criminal law is different from adult criminal law in several ways:

PLEASE NOTE: Some cases like Murder, Rape and Carjacking are deemed so serious that the juvenile may be subject to a special hearing where the juvenile court decides whether or not the juvenile’s matter should be heard in adult court. If the court decides that the case should go to adult court then it is transferred there and the juvenile is treated like any other adult offender.
