How do I apply for an attorney for a Juvenile?

Don’t worry. We contact you. The JDU receives a
copy of every Juvenile Written Allegation approved by the District Attorney’s Office
for prosecution. A juvenile defense attorney is automatically assigned to the
case and a confidential office interview is scheduled in our welcoming
conference room or if the juvenile is detained, the interview takes place with
the juvenile in custody. The same attorney stays with the client throughout the
life of the case, including the receipt of additional or new charges. The
client is however always free to hire private legal counsel at any time.
